Teenagers who need to get in shape, or who just like to work out, can do it for free this summer at Planet Fitness gyms around the nation.

The company is offering a free membership to teens between the ages of 15 and 18 for almost three months, from May 15 until Sept. 1.

For those under 18, a parent or guardian has to be present when the teen signs up and the teen can only use the gym where they register.

But that's not all. All teens who register will automatically be entered in the Teen Summer Challenge Scholarship Sweepstakes.

The company will host a drawing by the end of the summer and award one teenager from all 50 states plus the District of Columbia a college scholarship. One lucky person will win a $5,000 grand prize.
