Maryland Physicians Care Offering Free Planet Fitness Memberships in Prince George’s County

Maryland Physicians Care (MPC) – a statewide Medicaid managed care organization owned by Ascension Saint Agnes, Holy Cross Health, Meritus Health and UPMC Western Maryland – has launched a pilot program offering free Planet Fitness Classic Card memberships to its members age 13+ living in Prince George’s County, Md.

“Our hope is that by providing a free gym membership along with training, our members will feel more comfortable going to the gym and receiving instruction,” said MPC Chief Operating Officer Charles Buseck, who has worked closely with Planet Fitness to design this program that hopefully will be expanded statewide.

“There are benefits to regular physical activity that should support greater overall health and wellness, including controlling weight, combatting high blood pressure and heart disease, lowering stress, boosting energy and getting better sleep,” Buseck added. “We are excited to partner with Planet Fitness as they have a strong presence within Prince George’s County in areas where a large concentration of our membership resides.”

MPC members who meet the requirements will receive unlimited access to one of 11 Planet Fitness locations in Prince George’s County, with free in-club fitness training, Planet Fitness app workouts, free in-club Wi-Fi, partner rewards and discounts.

“We are excited to partner with MPC in PG County to provide a judgement free environment for members to work on not just their physical fitness, but also their mental well-being,” said Justin Drummond, president of Ohana Growth Partners (OGP), a franchise division of Planet Fitness.”

For information about the program, a list of participating Planet Fitness locations and member activation, call MPC Member Services at 800-953-8854 or Shannon Jones, MPC Community Engagement Manager, at 410-412-9730.
