Utica now has a Planet Fitness gym of its own.

Planet Fitness held a ribbon cutting at their new location at Riverside Center in North Utica Monday.

Owner Bob Morris talks about why he chose Riverside and North Utica.

Morris, who is from New Hartford, owns 10 Planet Fitness gyms throughout New York State including the New Hartford location, and he says he thinks the North Utica location will be a great compliment to the New Hartford site.
