Effective October 1st, membership dues and day pass rates will be adjusted. While we’d prefer to not have to raise rates, it is necessary to do so to keep up with ever rising costs. We work hard to put your dues right back into the gym and are continually making improvements to bring you the high level of offerings you’ve come to expect from Planet Granite.
In April of this year, we substantially increased (by 11%!) our hiring and pay rates for all our hourly employees including route setters, front desk staff, event staff, and coaches. As you know, Portland is becoming a more expensive place to live, and this increase allows us to attract and retain great staff members. This, in turn, leads to less turnover and better staff engagement – 2 things that can further improve your experience in the gym. In addition to staff wages, health care, insurance, and janitorial services (to name a few) have also increased.
We understand that these increases can be challenging. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. Thank you so much for your continued support and enthusiasm.
