Blink Fitness Boosts Affordable Fitness Access for Every Body by Joining the Silver&Fit and Active&Fit Networks
Posted: December 19, 2018 in Chains
NEW YORK, N.Y. – Blink Fitness, a premium quality, affordable fitness brand, announces that it is now participating in two programs that will provide new and current members of all ages access to affordable gym memberships. The programs include the Silver&Fit Exercise and Healthy Aging Program and the Active&Fit Program.
According to the International Health, Racquet, & Sportsclub Association (IHRSA), only 19.3% of Americans are members of a health club, which means that a staggering 4 in 5 Americans do not belong to a gym or otherwise. As Blink looks to address the need for accessible fitness opportunities across the country, the gym is thrilled to join Silver&Fit and Active&Fit networks.
The Silver&Fit program is one of the nation’s leading exercise and healthy aging programs offering no-cost and low-cost fitness center access for Medicare members. It contracts with top-name national fitness chains, as well as smaller, local exercise centers and YMCAs, offering members a broad choice of affordable fitness options. Silver&Fit’s national network includes more than 13,000 fitness centers nationwide.
The Active&Fit program is offered through health plans and employer groups. Members can choose from more than 10,000 fitness centers nationwide.
Beneficiaries of both programs will receive discounted or free memberships to all corporate-owned Blink Fitness locations across New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and California. Current Blink members who are also Silver&Fit or Active&Fit members will be able to take advantage of this agreement beginning today.
“Blink Fitness is proud to join the Silver&Fit and Active&Fit networks and give our communities more opportunities to live active, healthy lifestyles. We are thrilled to offer increased access to each gym’s Feel Good Experience®, which highlights enthusiastic staff, clean, open and colorful design, motivating fitness training and more,” said Todd Magazine, Chief Executive Officer of Blink Fitness. “To take advantage of Blink’s latest benefit, we encourage seniors to check their Medicare plans during open enrollment to see if their health programs offer Silver&Fit®, and we invite employees and health plan members everywhere to see if they are eligible for Active&Fit® through their benefit plans.”
“The addition of Blink Fitness to our network is very exciting and helps to round out the access we offer, especially in the New York City area, where the majority of their clubs are located,” said ASH Fitness Vice President Brett Hanson, MBA, MBF, DFSS, NASM-SFS. “Now our members in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, the Bronx, Long Island and other nearby areas have access to a dynamic and affordable new workout location.”
