How to Cancel Your Planet Fitness Membership
Step 1: Review Your Membership Contract
The first step in canceling your Planet Fitness membership is to review your contract. This will help you understand the terms and conditions of your membership and any potential fees associated with canceling.
If you have a Classic or Black Card membership, you can cancel at any time. However, if you have a Green Light membership, you cannot cancel until the year is up unless there are specific reasons such as moving, medical, or military deployment.
Step 2: Contact Your Home Club
To cancel your membership, you will need to contact your home club. You can find the phone number and address of your home club on the Planet Fitness website.
When you call, be prepared to provide your membership ID number, full name, and date of birth. You should also be prepared to answer some questions about why you want to cancel your membership.
Step 3: Follow the Cancellation Process
Once you have contacted your home club, they will guide you through the cancellation process. Depending on your membership type, there may be different steps to follow.
If you have a Classic or Black Card membership, you can cancel over the phone or in-person at the club. If you cancel over the phone, you will need to follow up with a written request, which you can submit via certified mail or in-person at the club.
