A new business at an old site.

Before 2019 wraps up, the former Kmart building on Fourth Street Southwest in Mason City will be occupied by the first Planet Fitness in the North Central Iowa area. 

Planet Fitness location

Workers can be seen updating a sidewalk in front of the former K-Mart building which now houses Harbor Freight and Ashley Furniture. Planet Fitness is slated to join the retail complex by the end of 2019.

According to Senior Public Relations Manager Becky Zirlen, the gym at 2006 4th St. SW will include cardio and strength equipment as well as free fitness training and a spa for "Black Card Members" that has water massage beds, massage chairs and tanning equipment.

The cost runs $10 for a regular monthly membership and $22.99 a month for the Black Card membership which lets members bring a guest for free and grants access to any of 1,800-plus gym locations.

Updates are being made to the former K-Mart building which now houses Harbor Freight and Ashley Furniture. Planet Fitness is slated to join the retail complex by the end of 2019.

Planet Fitness joins the likes of already-established facilities in town such as Anytime Fitness on South Taft Avenue, Ironhouse Gym on South Carolina Avenue and NIP Fitness on South Federal Avenue.

Planet Fitness also has plans to open up at the North Grand Mall in Ames before the year is up despite the fact that earnings have trended downward over the past two months. 

There's no word, as of now, when exactly the new location will be up and running.
