From now until August 31, New York City teenagers aged 14–19 years old can stay active this summer at Planet Fitness by signing up for a free High School Summer Pass seasonal membership

The Summer Pass grants City teens with free access to Planet Fitness locations across the five boroughs where they can exercise and focus on their physical and mental wellbeing throughout the summer. Passholders can also download the Planet Fitness app and gain access to 15 trainer-led workout videos and 10 downloadable workouts made exclusively for teens of all fitness levels.

“The health and wellbeing of our students goes beyond the classroom, lunchroom, and school gymnasium,” said Chancellor David C. Banks last month. It’s important that we provide our students with tools and opportunities to make healthy choices and to build healthier lifestyles no matter how much your family makes—and the High School Summer Pass initiative does just that. Thank you to Planet Fitness for giving our teenagers a free, safe environment to practice and build lifelong healthy habits this summer.”

In addition to the downloadable videos and gym access, all participants who sign up for the Summer Pass can download a free digital copy of Robert Irvine’s cookbook, “Family Table.” Plus, all participants are automatically entered into Planet Fitness’ High School Summer Pass Sweepstakes—Planet Fitness will award one $500 scholarship to a Passholder in each state, as well as one grand prize scholarship of $5000. These scholarships can be used for academic or athletic activities or programs.

To learn more about the Planet Fitness High School Summer Pass program, visit Planet Fitness’ official Summer Pass webpage. There, you’ll be able to sign up for the program, too—just note that teens under 18 must register for the Pass with a parent or guardian either online or in a Planet Fitness location.

On behalf of the DOE, we wish all of our participating teens a healthy summer—and don’t forget to stay hydrated!
