Planet Fitness offers free summer workout pass for teens, high school students

USA TODAY

is once again launching its program that promotes teens to work out this summer for free. This is the fourth year for the initiative.

Starting Saturday, June 1 teenagers between the ages of 14 to 19 can sign up for the free program at all gyms across the United States and Canada. The High School Summer Pass is not available in Puerto Rico. For teens under the age of 18, their parent must sign a waiver in order for them to participate in the program. This promotion will be available until Saturday, August 31, the fitness club said.

"The High School Summer Pass program offers a solution for teens to stay active during the summer when school is out and important academic and extracurricular programs such as sports, gym class and after-school activities are in recess," Senior Director of Public Relations at Planet Fitness, Becky Zirlen, told USA TODAY.

"All High School Summer Pass participants have access to free fitness training from in-club certified trainers, free workouts designed specifically for high schoolers in the free Planet Fitness app as well as workout plans," Zirlen said.

Here’s what you need to know about the High School Summer Pass program.

How can teens sign up for the High School Summer Pass program?

Teens can sign up online on the now. Sign up opened on Monday May 13. Participants can also sign up at their local Planet Fitness location.

Teens under the age of 18 will need to bring their parents along with them to sign up for the High School Summer Program at the fitness club or have their signature on the electronic waiver. After the waiver is signed, teens are able to work out independently.

"If a parent would like to work out with their teen, they would need to sign up for a Planet Fitness membership as the free program is only for teens ages 14 to 19," Zirlen said.

Although you must show that you are a high school student, you do not have to necessarily use your school email. For email addresses ending in “.edu” it can block online sign ups to outside organizations. Planet Fitness recommends all interested participants to sign up using a non “.edu” email.

Do I need to get the Planet Fitness App?

Using the same email you used to sign up for the High School Summer Pass, you will be able to access your account in the app. You’ll have to create an account with the same email and on June 1 your pass will automatically link to the account. A verification code will be sent to that email as well.

Staying somewhere else for the summer? Planet Fitness has got you covered

You can change the Planet Fitness you wish to work out at by re-registering at the and choosing the correct location you’d like to work out at. You must use the same email address and information you already put in to do so.

Will fitness classes be offered as well?

All participants will have access to the free fitness classes offered through the Planet Fitness PE@PF program.
