Explore discounted memberships at local health clubs

Why: 

Discounted memberships encourage employees to start regular physical fitness programs, allowing them to save money.  By participation, they can build outside relationships with co-workers, relieve stress, and get rewarded for maintaining a good level of physical fitness.

Discounted memberships are also a good alternative to creating an on-site fitness facility.

How: 

  • Contact individual health clubs (commercial fitness centers, fee-based, nonprofit agency fitness centers, and hospital-affiliated fitness/wellness centers) to inquire about corporate rate packages.

  • Evaluate which clubs participate in company discounts and offer the best programs and amenities.

  • Try to find a program that extends the discount to family members.

  • Provide the human resources department with all of the information.

  • Create a menu of fitness centers for employees to use as a resource.

  • Promote the program/discount to employees.
