Gainesville Health & Fitness is offering a free gym membership for teens this summer! The membership lasts from June 5 to August 4 and will give your teen access to all three centers.

This program aims to encourage teens to get active this summer instead of binging on video games and Netflix in their rooms. Not to mention, healthy habits start at a young age, and being active is crucial to your teen’s growth.

The program is for teens between the ages 13 and 17 years old who live in Alachua County. All three locations will be available to the teens for up to two hours per day. Registration is open now through August 4. Teens have to have a parent or legal guardian register them for the membership. Parents do not have to be members of GHF for their teens to take advantage of this opportunity. To learn more and to register, visit Ghfc.com/teen or call 352-377-4955.
