Planet Fitness is giving teens free workouts all summer long with their popular High School Summer Pass program.

The national gym chain has been letting teens workout for free during the summer since 2018. What started as a pilot program in Planet Fitness’ home state of New Hampshire quickly grew to be a nationwide hit. Now, these free workouts are available at the more than 2,000 Planet Fitness locations.

It’s at least $35 worth of workout fees for free. Now that’s a student discount.

We’ll tell you all about the program, how to sign up for the Summer Pass, and what adults can expect.

(Not a teen? It’s all good — we’re amassing a list of free workouts for adults, too.)


Ages 14-19 can work out for free between May 15-Aug. 31 with the Planet Fitness Summer Pass.

Planet Fitness’ High School Summer Pass is a free summer membership for high school teens aged 14-19 in the United States (excluding Puerto Rico) and Canada. Participants can work out for free at any participating Planet Fitness location throughout the summer from May 15 through Aug. 31.

In addition to free gym access, participants can also take advantage of free fitness classes through the Planet Fitness PE@PF program at participating locations. You can sign up for classes through the free Planet Fitness mobile app or by visiting your local club.

There are no time limits with the Summer Pass; participants can work out anytime during their local Planet Fitness gym’s hours.


Sign up for the Summer Pass online or in-club (with parent permission).

To sign up for the High School Summer Pass program at Planet Fitness, participants can register online starting May 1 at the Planet Fitness website or in person at any PF club. Participants who are under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign the electronic waiver or be present to sign the waiver in-club.

Once the waiver is signed, participants who are under 18 or the age of majority in their jurisdiction can work out alone (without an adult).



Summer Pass participants can win $10,000 for themselves, and $10,000 for their school.

High School Summer Pass participants can enter for a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship by submitting a 15- to 30-second TikTok video. In the video, participants will share about their Summer Pass experience, while tagging @PlanetFitness and #HSSP23US.

The program also includes a new leaderboard feature this year, tracking the number of sign-ups from each school. The top 10 schools on the leaderboard (5 from the US and 5 from Canada) will each receive a $10,000 grant to be used for new athletic equipment, field renovations, physical fitness classes, and health and wellness classes.


Once the summer ends, memberships start at $10/month.

If your teen enjoys the High School Summer Pass experience, they can become a Planet Fitness member starting at just $10 a month (same price for adults, too). This membership includes additional amenities such as the ability to bring a guest every day at no additional charge and access to all Planet Fitness locations.
