Chris Rondeau ’94 was studying business at UNH back in the early 1990s when he picked up a part-time job at a new gym in nearby Dover. After graduation he went full time at that gym — Planet Fitness — working with the owners to help refine the company’s business model and, over time, turn it into a low-cost fitness franchise. Today Rondeau is CEO of Planet Fitness, a $91 million company with more than 1,300 gyms throughout North America. He spoke with UNH Today about the business, his time at UNH and his passion outside of the gym.
