The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services recently released new physical activity guidelines, which revealed that 80 percent of Americans do not currently meet the recommended amount of physical activity. The guidelines also challenge youth (ages 6-17) to pursue a minimum of 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity each day. Planet Fitness is inviting high school teenagers ages 15-18 to work out for free at any of its more than 1,700 Planet Fitness locations through September 1 as part of the nationwide Teen Summer Challenge initiative. Free fitness classes specifically for teenagers will also be available Monday through Friday via certified fitness trainers. Planet Fitness operates two locations in Washtenaw County: 2350 West Stadium Boulevard in Ann Arbor, and 2748 Washtenaw Avenue in Ypsilanti.
