planet fitness teen summer challenge houston

If you are a teen (or have one) who likes to stay fit, summertime can pose a hurdle to easy and cheap access to a gym. For roughly three months, you can’t simply stay after school to lift weights or get a good work out through extracurricular sports classes. While there seems to be a gym on every neighborhood corner, they typically have high prices and membership fees can add up quickly. If you are looking for a simple and inexpensive solution to staying in shape this summer, join the Planet Fitness Teen Summer Challenge — one of the most healthy things to do in Houston this summer!

In an effort to promote wellness and healthy activities, Planet Fitness is letting teens ages 15-18 work out for free at a location of choosing through September 1.  In a recent online survey, 91% of teens said they want to stay active over the summer. So, the no-judgment gym decided to give young adults want they want in a healthy, safe, and convenient environment.

Want to join? Head to your nearest Planet Fitness location today! Teens under the age of 18 need to bring a parent or guardian at the time of registration, but can workout alone thereafter. Those already 18 years old don’t need a parent or guardian present. Choose your location wisely because transfers are not available. Participants will only be able to work out for free at the location registered at through September 1.

In addition to top-of-the-line equipment including cardio machines and numerous weights, teens also have the opportunity to join free fitness training classes through the [email protected] program. A certified trainer will walk you around the facility and get you familiar with all of the machines so you can feel confident using everything on your own. In addition, there is a multitude of small group offerings where an instructor will guide everyone through an exercise program. Choose from a variety of options that are best suited to meet your specific fitness goals this summer.
