National Fitness Partners Encourages Fitness Among Younger Generations
Getting younger generations into workout routines and establishing healthy habits early is important. Devoted to inspiring younger people to work out, National Fitness Partners donated more than 30 pieces of fitness equipment to a local Philadelphia school, Marple Newtown High School.
The franchise group continually explores ways to get involved with their local educational institutions whether it’s through donations, sponsorships or trainers hosting classes. With the increase in joins across Gen Z and with the success of the High School Summer Pass Program, the group feels it’s important to build upon these relationships however it can.
The members of the high school were incredibly thankful for the contribution. “Planet Fitness®’ generous donation of fitness equipment has expanded our physical education courses and athletic programs to provide our students with more opportunities to plan fitness programs, invest time in their personal health and establish healthy lifestyles,” said Dr. Tina Kane, superintendent of Schools for Marple Newtown School District.
National Fitness Partners has 35 clubs in the Philadelphia market and constantly has feelers out for local schools in need. The group also looks for local fire stations, police departments, Boys & Girls Clubs and more that may need fitness equipment.
The hope was this donation would help the students stay active and focus on their physical and mental well-being. The franchise group achieved that goal with the donation.
“Planet Fitness’ amazing donation has changed our weight room into a state-of-the-art fitness center. We have more students using the Allan K. Jones Fitness Center than ever before,” said Chris Gicking, the school’s athletic director.
