Gym operator Planet Fitness' burgeoning equipment retail business stems from its commitment to staying on the cutting edge of active-lifestyle offerings, CEO Chris Rondeau told Cramer in an exclusive interview on Monday.
"We never want to be out-newed," said Rondeau, whose national company now boasts 12.2 million members. Nearly 45-percent of Planet Fitness' client base are millennials, he added.

Short term, you're going to have tariff issues, you've got the president … in the White House saying all sorts of negative things, so just understand he and the Fed both are fighting it. OK? They don't want you to make money here. But the company itself is trying to make you money."
