The end of the school year shouldn’t be the end of students’ efforts to stay physically healthy this summer, according to Mayor Eric Adams and Schools Chancellor David Banks.
They were present to unveil a new initiative for students between the ages of 14 and 19 with Planet Fitness outlets in New York City.
It’s called the High School Summer Pass Program.
As teenagers prepare for the summer, Adams said it was crucial to offer them activities and leisure time to keep them occupied and safe. “We are excited to announce this relationship with Planet Fitness, which will give our young New Yorkers access to a free, judgment-free area where they can focus on their physical and mental health.”
Through the fitness chain’s High School Summer Pass Program, New York City high school students can work out for free at any Planet Fitness store nationwide.
High school students between the ages of 14 and 19 are eligible to take advantage of this offer, which is valid until the end of August and is valid at any of the 41 Planet Fitness sites in New York City as well as all other locations in the United States and Canada.
According to Planet Fitness, High School Summer Pass provides a way for kids who want to stay active after school sports programs, gym classes, and extracurricular activities end.
The following is an explanation of how to make use of the program.
- You can sign up for your free High School Summer Pass in-person or online up to the 31st of August. If you are younger than 18, you will need permission from a parent or legal guardian. Register at planetfitness.com/summerpass to take advantage of this offer.
