Planet Fitness offers teen program
Planet Fitness Inc., one of the largest and fastest-growing franchises and operators of fitness centers in the U.S. and proudly headquartered in Hampton, is inviting high school teenagers ages 15 to 18 to work out for free at any of its locations from May 15 through Sept. 1 as part of its nationwide Teen Summer Challenge. The nationwide launch builds on last summer’s successful pilot program in New Hampshire, which saw more than 2,500 teens log nearly 12,000 gym visits at the state’s 18 Planet Fitness locations throughout the program’s duration.
“Teens today are under ever-increasing pressure to succeed academically and socially, battle a growing list of responsibilities both inside and outside the classroom and become well-rounded members of their community,” said Chris Rondeau, chief executive officer at Planet Fitness. “At Planet Fitness, a healthy and active lifestyle should never be a challenge — which is why we’re launching the nationwide Teen Summer Challenge. We want to give teens the chance to stay active when school is out — a time when they may not otherwise have access to organized fitness or athletic programs, which is why we’re offering a safe space to exercise for free and spend time with their friends all summer long.”
Additionally, all teens who sign up beginning May 15 are automatically entered into Planet Fitness’ Scholarship Sweepstakes. By the end of summer, 51 teens across all 50 states and Washington, D.C., will be randomly selected to receive a scholarship toward academics or athletics, including one $5,000 grand prize. Teens will also have the chance to win exciting prizes on Planet Fitness’ Twitter and Instagram channels throughout the summer, such as club swag, movie tickets and wireless headphones. To sign-up, visit a nearby Planet Fitness beginning May 15. Teens under 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at sign-up.
