Is the Gym Open Today? Presidents Day Hours at Planet Fitness, Equinox, Crunch and More

Today is Presidents Day. The national holiday is celebrated on the third Monday of every February and this year it falls on February 17. While most retail venues across the country are open, some may be running on a reduced schedule.

Presidents Day was traditionally known as a celebration of the birth of George Washington, the first president of the county, which is on February 22. This tradition began just a year after his death in 1799.

But in modern times, the day has evolved into a celebration of all U.S. presidents, both from the past as well as the present.
