An Effective, Straightforward Guide to Canceling Your Planet Fitness Membership

One of the most cumbersome ways to cancel a Planet Fitness membership is going to your local gym.
Planet Fitness is a popular gym chain that offers premium memberships to its users. With its wide range of equipment and services, it's no wonder that many people opt to join the gym.
However, there may come a time when you need to cancel your membership for various reasons. Whether you are moving out of the area, switching to another gym, or just want to take a break from fitness, this guide will help you manage your Planet Fitness account and cancel your membership with ease.
Unfortunately, Planet Fitness makes it difficult for members where you won’t be able to cancel via email or phone. Not to worry! We show you the way you can do it via Planet Fitness’ cancellation process (the cumbersome way) or with ScribeUp (the easy, two-minute alternative).

Planet Fitness Cancellation Process

Although the monthly fee is fairly cheap at about $10/month, Planet Fitness club makes it nearly impossible to cancel your membership. There are two ways you can cancel planet fitness membership: filling out a cancellation form at the front desk or writing a planet fitness cancellation letter to HQ. Both options take at least 30 minutes to do. Ouch.

Fill out cancellation form at the front desk (30 - 90 min)

  1. Go to your home club (make sure it’s your home club and not a visiting gym. We have been turned away if it’s not the gym you signed up at)
  2. Ask the front desk for the cancellation form
  3. Fill it out on the spot (just a signature)
  4. Submit planet fitness cancellation form
You will have access to the gym for the rest of the billing cycle, but the cancellation will be effective immediately.

Write a letter to HQ (5 business days)

  1. Write a letter with your signature to the HQ (include the date at which you want to cancel to ensure you won’t be charged for the next billing cycle)
    1. Here is a letter template that worked for us:
      Dear Planet Fitness Customer Service,
      Please consider this letter as formal notice of my decision to cancel my membership at Planet Fitness. I request that you process the cancellation as soon as possible and confirm in writing. Could you also let me know if there are any fees or charges I need to be aware of before the cancellation is complete?
      Thank you,
      [Your Name and Signature]
  2. Send letter in certified mail to your home club’s address found here:
  3. Wait until you get confirmation — we suggest calling your local club after 5 business days
You will have access to the gym for the rest of the billing cycle, but the cancellation will be effective immediately.
