Any potential gym-goer under the age of 18 (and over 14) must have parental permission, and will have access to get their workouts on during their PF location's set operating hours. They'll also have the option of participating in free fitness classes called PE@PF at participating locations.

Summer Pass Registration Begins May 13th

Beginning May 13th, teens 14-19 can register in-person at their local Planet Fitness, or even from the comfort of their home through the Planet Fitness website. There is a waiver for those under the age of 18 that requires a parental signature. Once the waiver is signed though, participants under the age of 18 are not required to have an adult on site while they work out.

There are several Hudson Valley locations, find your closest one here. Now, let's just make sure the teens don't go setting off any lunk alarms in any of our local judgement free zones....
