Gym Reimbursement-Fit Choices

You are here

100 or 150 Wellbeing Points

When you enroll in the Fit Choices program and exercise at least eight times per month, up to $20 of your monthly membership dues will be reimbursed to you plus you can earn up to 150 wellbeing points.

How it Works

When you exercise at least eight times a month for six months between October 1, 2017, and July 31, 2018, you can earn 100 wellbeing points. When you exercise at least 12 times a month during the same time period, you can earn 150 wellbeing points. You will earn the wellbeing points after you have been reimbursed over six consecutive months.

Reimbursements through Fit Choices come in the form of reduced membership fees at your gym or fitness center. Please talk to your fitness center for more information on how they will reimburse your fees.

If your spouse is covered by the UPlan, he or she is also eligible to receive up to $20 monthly reimbursement for visiting a participating fitness center at least eight times per month. They can also earn wellbeing points using the same rules stated above.

For most gyms (except the University Recreation and Wellness Center), you can sign up for Fit Choices right at your gym or fitness center. Follow these instructions to sign up for Fit Choices reimbursement with a UMD campus RSOP facility pass and follow the instructions to sign up.
