Columbus Day also known as Indigenous Peoples’ Day falls on October 9th this year but will gyms and fitness centers like Planet Fitness, LA Fitness, and Gold’s Gym open on the federal holiday.

Columbus Day falls on the second Monday of October each year. In 2023, the holiday descends on October 9th. In 2021, President Joe Biden formally recognized Indigenous Peoples’ Day by signing a proclamation and since then it has also been called the latter. The federal holiday sees banks and many other institutions shutting their doors. Hence several fitness enthusiasts are wondering if Planet Fitness, LA Fitness, and other gyms will be open on Columbus Day 2023.
