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 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 are no worries about the weather, and 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 a UPMC or WorkPartners employer-sponsored wellness plan, you have access to the Active&Fit Direct program, which allows you to choose from 10,000+ participating fitness centers nationwide for $25 a month (plus a $25 enrollment fee and applicable taxes). And if you enroll in June, your $25 enrollment fee will be waived with the promo code JUNE25OFF.*
The Active&Fit Direct program offers:
• Online directory maps and a 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 June 23, you’ll pay $25 for all of June. Bottom line: If you qualify for this promotion, don’t delay. Sign up today!
