The Teen Summer Challenge®, conducted by Planet Fitness® clubs across North America in last summer, brought teenagers into gyms to work out. Impact Fitness’ club in North Vancouver, British Columbia, recently awarded one of these teenagers a $500 Teen Summer Challenge scholarship.
The winner, Helia, is 17 and will use the funds to pay for her tuition at her university starting this fall. On Dec. 18, Helia came to visit the club for a celebration in which she was presented with a check and took photos with the Impact Fitness team.
“The scholarship shows that Planet Fitness is a Judgement Free Zone® for everyone,” said Bethany Obloy, vice president of marketing at Impact Fitness. “It also helps promote and encourage positivity for members to use while in the gym and outside in their everyday life.”
Helia was extremely grateful for the scholarship and enjoyed working out at the North Vancouver club last summer. She raved about her experience to her friends and plans on coming back to the club this summer before she heads off to school.
