SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Teenagers will be able to work out for free this summer with Planet Fitness' Teen Summer Challenge.

To participate, teenagers only have to sign-up in one of the Planet Fitness clubs. People under the age of 18 will have to have a parent or guardian with them during sign-up, however, once signed up, they can work out by themselves.
