Teens can work out for free this summer at Planet Fitness with the gym’s High School Summer Pass program.
Planet Fitness, which deems itself a “judgment-free zone” in the fitness industry, has over 2,000 locations open across the United States, according to its website. All gyms are participating in the program pass.
People ages 14-19 will be able to enroll at no cost to work out between May 16 and Aug. 31, according to the company. Anyone under 18 years old will need a parent or guardian to sign off on their enrollment.
All teenagers need to do to enroll is visit the gym’s website or go in person to their home gym and sign up once the program starts, according to the program. Teens can sign up for a reminder to be notified when enrollment opens.
Teens will have to use their specific local gym that they enroll with to work out and cannot visit different Planet Fitness locations with their summer pass
“Whether you’re a first-time gym user or a veteran member, we’re here to provide a workout environment in which anyone – and everyone – can be comfortable,” Planet Fitness says on its website.
The program offers another incentive other than building muscle — teens will have a chance to win a $500 scholarship in each state, and participants will be enrolled in raffle for a grand prize $5,000 scholarship, according to the program.
Only 24% of children between ages 6 to 17 participate in the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity every day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
People can visit the Planet Fitness website for more information about the High School Summer Pass Program.
