From staff reports
Planet Fitness is inviting high school students ages 14 to 19* to work out for free at any Planet Fitness location in South Carolina from May 16 through August 31 as part of its High School Summer Pass initiative.
High School Summer Pass – formally known as Teen Summer Challenge – was the first program of its kind launched in 2019 and saw more than 900,000 teens sign-up and complete more than 5.5 million workouts over a three-and-a-half-month period.
High school students can visit PlanetFitness.com/SummerPass to pre-register, and get a reminder to formally sign up when the program officially kicks off on Monday, May 16.
Teens must work out at the location they sign up at and are not permitted to use other locations. Teens younger than 18 must sign-up with a parent or guardian in-club or online at PlanetFitness.com/SummerPass. Once the parent or guardian waiver is signed for teens younger than 18, teens can work out alone. Students who are already 18 do not need a parent or guardian to be present during the sign-up process.
To further motivate high school studentss to make fitness a priority, all participants who sign up starting May 16 are automatically entered into The Planet Fitness High School Summer Pass Sweepstakes. Planet Fitness will award one $500 scholarship in each state (and the District of Columbia), and one grand prize $5,000 scholarship at the end of the summer. These scholarships can be used for academic or athletic activities or programs.
In addition to free in-club fitness training that all High School Summer Pass participants will have access to, the certified trainers at Planet Fitness have also designed 15 trainer-led workout videos and 10 downloadable workouts – encompassing cardio, strength, toning and sports circuits – just for high school students (across all fitness levels). This content will be available on the Planet Fitness App and at PlanetFitness.com/SummerPass starting May 16.
