Planet Fitness Daytona Beach
1423 South Nova Road, Daytona Beach
Monday-Friday open 24 hours (closes Friday 9pm), Saturday & Sunday 7am-7pm
The Planet Fitness chain has found popularity due to its affordable membership options as well as through their strive to be a “Judgement-free zone”. This means working out at your own pace, on your own time, and without the pressure of some more muscle-bound gyms. In fact, if anyone is loudly grunting or dropping large weights, they will really draw attention to themselves when the “Lunk” alarm goes off as a reminder to respect the others working out around them. Planet Fitness offers a large assortment of the newest cardio equipment, free-weights and other fitness training equipment. Planet Fitness also offers tanning and has spacious locker rooms with private showers and lockers to secure your valuables. There are several membership options to choose from, but possibly the most beneficial one is their Black Card Membership which consists of unlimited fitness training at any Planet Fitness location across the country and also allows you to bring a guest with you. Also included is unlimited tanning and massage chair use and a 50% discount on cooler beverages. The Black Card will cost around $20 a month and requires a 12-month contract and an additional annual fee charge of $39. (Rates may change, not guaranteed)

CrossFit Daytona is a core and strength conditioning program based on functional training and movements, done over various times (short to long workouts) and Modes (types of exercises: Olympic lifts, power lifts, gymnastics, running, ect). The workouts don’t change, but are universally scalable based on individual fitness levels. Everything is tailored to the individual. CrossFit Daytona trains in a group dynamic. This allows for people to learn from, and push each other, while a CrossFit certified trainer is present overseeing the entire workout stressing form, efficacy and efficiency. CrossFit Daytona is not a boot camp, a month meeting in a park, or a gym that locks members into ridiculous contracts with no regard to fitness, health and wellness, or sense of community. CrossFit is a lifestyle. Call for membership pricing.
Here are some outdoor options for Daytona Beach fitness:
The Beach - “The world’s most famous exercise area” is not as catchy as other options but our area beaches are a great walking/running option. The beach offers great views, a perpetual breeze, and the option to dip in the water if you’d like to cool down. At low tide the beach is up to 500 feet wide and the length, of course, is entirely up to you. Also, the choice between exercising in the soft-sand closer to mainland or the compact sand at the water’s edge provides different training alternatives.
Bridges - The Daytona area bridges are a common interval-training stop for many due to the large inclines and declines. Here you can make your own routine for walking/running that provides an extra challenge from the usual flat landscape around Florida. Below are the lengths in feet of local bridges:
Port Orange Causeway (Dunlawton) - 750 ft
Broadway Bridge (International Spdwy Blvd) - 3,008 ft
Granada Bridge - 1,923 ft
