Planet Fitness offers free gym memberships to high school students this summer
Research shows when teens exercise regularly, it improves their academics and leads to better mental and physical health
Registration begins May 16 but students can pre-register on the company’s website to get a reminder later this month. Teens younger than 18 must sign up at a Planet Fitness location with a parent.
“We believe we have a responsibility to provide a welcoming, safe and judgment free environment for high school students to improve their physical and mental wellness,” said Chris Rondeau, the chain’s CEO. “Particularly given the challenges they have and continue to face in the wake of the pandemic.”
