High school students can work out for free at all Planet Fitness locations this summer.
Students ages 14 to 18 are eligible from May 16 to Aug. 31. And, students signed up are automatically entered into a sweepstakes that will award one $500 scholarship per state and a grand prize of a $5,000 scholarship.
The High School Summer Pass program was formerly known as Teen Summer Challenge that was launched in 2019.
Students younger than 18 years old, must register with a parent or guardian but once a waiver is signed, the student can work out alone.
Students must work out at the location they sign up at and are not permitted to use other locations.
“As the leader in fitness, we believe we have a responsibility to provide a welcoming, safe, and Judgement Free environment for high school students to improve their physical and mental wellness, particularly given the challenges they have and continue to face in the wake of the pandemic,” said Chris Rondeau, chief executive officer at Planet Fitness.
“Our study found that nearly all (92 percent) high school students agreed that when they are regularly physically active, they feel much better mentally. Fitness is about feeling good, too, and our hope is that High School Summer Pass empowers teens to create life-long workout habits to help them succeed in every aspect of their lives.”
Students also will have access to certified trainers, 15 trainer-led workout videos and 10 downloadable workouts specifically for high school students.
