Planet Fitness to allow teenagers to work out for free over the summer

This summer, Planet Fitness is introducing their “Teen Summer Challenge,” which will allow teenagers to work out for free throughout the summer.

Teens aged 15-18 are qualified for the program, which runs from May 15 through September 1. The summer challenge is being offered all of Planet Fitness’ more than 1,800 locations throughout the United States and Canada, including its 75 locations throughout Michigan.

Planet Fitness will also be offering free fitness classes at least once a day, Monday through Friday, depending on the specific location.

“I know a lot of people who want to work out but don’t want to pay for a gym membership, so I think this is a great program,” senior Riley Smith said.

As an additional incentive, all teens who sign up are entered into Planet Fitness’ Scholarship Sweepstakes. The prizes of which include one $500 scholarship for each state and a $5,000 grand prize. Teens will also have the opportunity to win other prizes through Planet Fitness social media, which includes Planet Fitness merchandise, movie tickets, and wireless headphones.

According to the Planet Fitness website, “New research shows that 91 percent of teens want to stay active over the summer, and that’s why Planet Fitness is offering teens a safe space where they can get their sweat on in a healthy way.”

Online signups are not available, so interested parties must visit their preferred Planet Fitness location in person to sign up. Participating teens must work out at the location they sign up at and are not permitted to use other locations. Teens under the age of 18 must bring a parent/guardian to sign up, however, they can work out alone after being signed up.

I'm a senior at Gull Lake High School and this is my first year on The Reflection staff, so I guess you could call me a newspaper newbie. I joined the newspaper sort of on a whim because I wanted to put the skills I learned in Multimedia and Reporting to work, but I'm here to stay and enjoy the ride. I like to write feature articles because I love the facet of newspaper that is giving people an outlet to speak their minds.
