Southwest Georgians now have another new way to get in shape.

Planet Fitness opened its new gym in Albany on Thursday, located next to Moe's Southwest Grill and across from the Albany Mall.

The gym features 90 cardio machines, strength equipment and weights, and even tanning booths and massage chairs.

Planet Fitness said they're also bringing about a dozen new jobs to the area with this new location.

"Staffing of our gym is generally about 12 to 15 people, and generally for that too, we also hire outside contractors for other additional services that we may need," Marketing Manager Anthony Roberts Jr. said.

Planet Fitness is now accepting new members, and you can also contact them for a free day pass or tour to learn more.
