Teens across NYC offered free Planet Fitness access all summer
Teenagers looking for summer plans won’t need to shell out cash to hit the gym.
Planet Fitness is welcoming New York City’s teens to work out in their gyms with their “High School Summer Pass” – a membership that staff are hoping will motivate students to stay active over summer break.
“Health and wellness is more important than anything else,” said NYC Schools Chancellor David Banks. “It’s more important than math and science and the reason I’m telling you that is because without your health, nothing else matters.”
Along with the free membership, Planet Fitness is giving students even more of an incentive to participate by awarding one lucky student from every state with a $500 scholarship.
Students can sign up online or at any one of the 41 locations across the city, and the program runs until the end of August.
