Item 5.02
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On February 15, 2024, Christopher Rondeau resigned from the Planet Fitness, Inc. (the “Company”) board of directors (the “Board”). Mr. Rondeau did not serve on any Board committees at the time of his resignation.

The Company believes that Mr. Rondeau resigned from the Board because of disagreements with the Company over decisions made by the Company since Mr. Rondeau’s separation as chief executive officer in September 2023, including the Company’s decision to terminate the employment of approximately 9% of the Company's headquarters employees in February 2024, the scope of the role of the interim chief executive officer in managing the Company during the Company’s ongoing search for a permanent chief executive officer, and the Board’s role in reviewing and approving such decisions. A copy of an e-mail sent by Mr. Rondeau to the Board on February 14, 2024 concerning the circumstances surrounding his resignation is filed as an exhibit to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

The Company thanks Mr. Rondeau for his service to the Company; however, the Company respectfully disagrees with Mr. Rondeau’s views on these matters. The Board has momentum behind the search for a new CEO and the Board is encouraged by the progress to date. The Company will provide an update on the search in its upcoming earnings call on February 22, 2024.
