New York City high school students can work out for free this summer at Planet Fitness gyms, the company and Mayor Adams announced Thursday.

Students ages 14 to 19 are eligible for two months of free membership at any of the gym’s 41 locations across the five boroughs, the company said.

“We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Planet Fitness, which will allow our young New Yorkers to focus on their physical and mental health in a judgment-free space, free of charge,” Adams said.

Teenagers can apply for membership online or in-person with a parent or guardian at any Planet Fitness gym, through Aug. 31.

The famously health-conscious Adams, who also spearheaded an initiative to serve vegan food on Fridays in public school cafeterias, has touted the benefits of diet and exercise.

Adams has also pushed summer youth programming as a way to cut down on violence affecting city teens, expanding the city’s summer school and summer youth employment programs.

Teens who sign up for the summer pass will also get access to virtual workouts and online healthy eating cookbook.
