Members Can Get Healthy with the Active&Fit DirectTM Program


Enroll in September and we’ll waive your $25 enrollment fee!


For many people, September is the other January, marking the beginning of a new year. The back-to-school season can feel like a fresh start, an opportunity to set new goals—and the perfect time to launch a new fitness routine!

Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Exercise can help you manage your weight and reduce your risk of chronic disease. And it often produces mood-boosting endorphins, making you feel more upbeat and energetic when you’re done.

You’re most likely to make exercising a habit if you find a workout that you enjoy. Joining a gym can be a great option for some people. There’s no worries about the weather, you have access to many different types of equipment. And if you like variety, group exercise classes can provide new challenges.

If you’re a member of UPMC Health Plan, UPMC for You, or UPMC MyHealth, you have access to the Active&Fit Direct program, which allows you to choose from 9,000+ participating fitness centers and select YMCAs nationwide for $25 a month (plus a $25 enrollment fee and applicable taxes). And if you enroll in the month of September, your $25 enrollment fee will be waived with the promo code 792062S3.


The Active&Fit Direct program offers:

  • Online directory maps and locator for participating fitness centers (available on any device).
  • A free guest pass to try out a fitness center before enrolling (where available).
  • The option to switch fitness centers to make sure you find the right fit.

One thing to note: you pay $25 for your first month no matter when you start. So, if you sign up on September 23, you’ll pay $25 for the entire month of September. Bottom line: if you qualify for this promotion, don’t delay. Sign up today!
