Area youth age 15 – 18 are invited to participate in a free program at Planet Fitness in the Penrose Plaza on Island Avenue. The program runs from May 15 to Sept 1. The awesome facility has an incredible range of exercise equipment and dedicated staff to help develop a regimen that will fit the personal needs of each young person.
The friendly local management noted that a regular exercise program is not only fun for individuals, it is also great when small groups of neighborhood friends or schoolmates can do it together. The enjoyment aspects aside, regular exercise is a great avenue to good health and a positive lifestyle! The World Health Organization estimates that over 80 percent of young people don’t get enough exercise*
Planet Fitness is easy to get to via the SEPTA trolley #36 which runs down Elmwood Avenue to Penrose Plaza – with a turn-around virtually at the Planet Fitness door!
