Is Planet Fitness open on Thanksgiving or will you have to wait until after the holiday to pump some holiday iron?
Thanksgiving is an interesting holiday — sort of the fun uncle of the fall holiday season.
It’s after Halloween but before Christmas and Hannukah and is floating in a fun little either of hope while there’s still time left in the year and the excitement of another holiday season is on the horizon. Calling Thanksgiving a pregame to the December holiday season is a little unfair, it’s more like the middle movie of a really fun trilogy where the stakes aren’t as high but the plot gets moved along nicely.
But what Thanksgiving is most known for — aside from the tricky politics both of its history and the politics at the table — is food.
Turkey. Gravy. Mashed potatoes. Mac and Cheese. Wine.
Most of our holidays revolve around food but Thanksgiving truly takes the cake — or, more accurately, the pie.
Some folks might want to look to work off their holiday gorging, or prep by hitting the gym before the festivities around the dinner table begin. That means wondering if Planet Fitness is open and whether or not you’ll be able to get there on the holiday.
Is Planet Fitness open on Thanksgiving 2022?
As Reverand Lovejoy from The Simpsons once quipped: Yes with a but, no with an if.
Yes, Planet Fitness is open on Thanksgiving but it won’t have the normal hours. No, Planet Fitness won’t be open 24 hours like it usually is during a normal day because of the holiday.
Planet Fitness Thanksgiving hours 2022
Well, this is a little tricky. Planet Fitness is a franchise, which means that each gym is individually owned even though they’re all operating under the same corporate umbrella. This means that it’s up to each specific gym to set its holiday hours under whatever overall mandate comes down from the top.
That mandate typically means that gyms don’t have to remain open for the usual 24-hour period on days like Thanksgiving.
Of course that makes figuring out whether or not your local Planet Fitness will be open on Thanksgiving a lot more complicated than it needs to be.
- Call your local Planet Fitness. Whoever is working the front desk will be able to give you that location’s Thanksgiving hours quicker than it will take to actually dial the number. For instance, one Chicago Planet Fitness we called will be open until 2 pm.
- Check the Planet Fitness gym finder. Not every location will have its holiday hours updated here but typically this is where you’ll be able to find the most accurate information without needing to interact with another human being over the phone.
The best hack here is to simply go to the gym beforehand. Most Planet Fitness locations will have printed out signs both on the main doors and throughout the gym that list what the Thanksgiving hours will be. It also doubles as a great excuse to go to the gym, which is never a bad thing.

As stated above, the hours for each Planet Fitness really depend on what location you’re looking at. That aforementioned corporate mandate — which is also the entire sales pitch of Planet Fitness — is that the gym is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
That’s not entirely true at all locations. While Planet Fitness is usually open every weekday 24 hours, some locations close on Sunday night and reopen early Monday morning. Use the gym finder to be totally sure what your location’s hours are.
- Sunday Hours: 7 am-7 pm
- Monday Hours: Opens at 5 am
- Tuesday Hours: 24 hours
- Wednesday Hours: 24 hours
- Thursday Hours: 24 hours
- Friday Hours: Closes at 9 pm
