Active&Fit Fitness Center Program

Many members prefer to go to a fitness center for their physical activity regimen. The Active&Fit Fitness Center Program includes a range of options that offer access to fitness centers throughout the nation, making it convenient and easy for you to fit activity into your busy schedule. You can select from one of the many participating fitness centers.

To search the nationwide network of participating fitness centers or nominate a fitness center, visit or call the toll-free customer service hotline at 1.888.797.7806.

You may want to continue using your existing fitness center. If the fitness center is part of the Active&Fit network, you should advise the fitness center’s staff you are eligible for the Active&Fit program and present your Active&Fit fitness card. If the fitness center is not part of the Active&Fit network, you will need to switch to an Active&Fit fitness center for a no-cost membership.

If you enroll by phone, the welcome letter, which includes the name and location of the selected fitness center, will be mailed within five days of enrolling. If you enroll online, you can download and print your welcome letter immediately.

You can change your fitness center of choice once per month. This can be done at or by calling the Active&Fit toll-free customer service hotline at 1.888.797.7806. When you switch your fitness center, the new fitness center effective date will be the first day of the following month.

*Services that call for an added fee are not part of the Active&Fit Program.

Active&Fit Home Fitness Program

We listened to our members, and many of you asked for a fitness program that you could do at home. So we are now offering a option — the Active&Fit Home Fitness program.

If you select this option, you can exercise in the privacy and convenience of your own home. There’s no wasted time spent driving to a gym — or missing an exercise class because you aren’t available at a specific time. The Active&Fit Home Fitness Program allows you to create your own exercise plan, tailored to whenever (and wherever) you want it to be.

The Active&Fit Home Fitness Program also offers a choice of 17 Home Fitness Kits that cover the topics listed below. You can choose up to two fitness kits each benefit year to incorporate into your fitness routine***.
