Discounted Fitness/Health Memberships: An Update

Human Resources' Quality of Worklife Program is offering all Penn faculty and staff, and their families, access to the GlobalFit Discount Health Club membership program. Available for new memberships (existing memberships cannot be converted), this plan offers month-to-month billing and the flexibility to freeze and/or transfer your membership. Most monthly dues are $19.95. A one-time affiliation fee--two payments ranging from $29.50 to $49--must be paid during the first two months of participation.

Watch your mail this month for a brochure describing the GlobalFit program. The brochure provides a directory of the GlobalFit Health Club options and a free guest pass to take advantage of a free club tour and workout. Choices are available from a network of over 75 of Delaware Valley's top rated clubs, including clubs in New Jersey and Delaware, as well as Pennsylvania.
