Mall space is being repurposed as more department store chains close stores that have traditionally served as "anchors" at malls. The Planet Fitness now occupies the space that was previously a Sears. Abandoned by the big brands, deserted by the young, the American mall, once temples of the shopping, have become ghost towns, victims of the explosion of online shopping. / AFP PHOTO / Don Emmert / TO GO WITH AFP STORY by John BIERS, "Deserted, US shopping centers look for a future" (Photo credit should read DON EMMERT/AFP/Getty Images)

ST. LOUIS, Mo. — Planet Fitness is trying to get teens up and moving this summer with their latest challenge. It’s called the Teen Summer Challenge.

The gym welcomes high school teens 15 to 18 to work out at any of its more than 1,700 locations, for free, all summer long, as much as they want.

The challenge starts May 15th through September 1st. Teens must sign up and only work out at the location they sign up for.  Teens under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

By the end of the summer, the gym will randomly select 51 teens across the country who will receive a $500 scholarship as they plan for college.  One lucky winner will be awarded a grand prize of $5,000.
