High School Summer Pass

Agency: Barkley


Last year Planet Fitness’ High School Summer Pass program motivated 3.5 million students to prioritize their physical and mental health by completing a combined total of 17 million workouts over a three-and-a-half-month period. But to get even more teens to sign up this year, Planet Fitness tasked Barkley to create a campaign that teens won't skip or scroll past, but might actually binge.

"On This Repisode of High School Summer Pass," is not simply a promo for a free gym membership - it is an entire show about a promo for a free gym membership.

Created for teen-friendly platforms like TikTok and Instagram Reels, the ten episodes, or video Repisodes, parody popular teen shows like "Ginny & Georgia" and "Outer Banks." However, instead of highlighting stereotypical teen storylines, each Repisode comedically centers around life in the gym and the key benefits of the High School Summer Pass™.

In addition to the Repisodes, Planet Fitness will be releasing behind-the-scenes content, plus an AR filter inspired by the tradition of yearbook superlatives. This filter will assign fun fitness-related superlatives to your selfie, then add it to a High School Summer Pass yearbook.

This professional campaign titled 'High School Summer Pass' was published in United States in June, 2023. It was created for the brand: Planet Fitness, by ad agency: Barkley. This Integrated medium campaign is related to the Fitness industry and contains 4 media assets. It was submitted 4 months ago.
