Fitness Rewards Program

Exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. The Fitness Rewards Program is a motivating and rewarding way to stay fit. Being healthy means better care for our patients and an improved quality of life!

Associates covered under an OhioHealth Medical plan or who elected the Opt-In to Wellness option are eligible for the Fitness Rewards Program.

Associates can join the OhioHealth Fitness Centers, WellWorks at Ohio University, and many YMCA locations across Ohio and begin participating in the program.

  • It’s easy to earn back your membership dues!
    • 24 or more visits per quarter (about two times per week) = 100% reimbursement
    • 18–23 visits per quarter = 50% reimbursement
    • Less than 18 visits per quarter = no reimbursement
  • Enrollment & Reimbursement

    To be eligible to receive your reimbursement, you must elect to pay for membership dues via payroll deduction. This benefit is taxable and the reimbursement of your gym membership fees is subject to tax withholding. This is because the IRS considers these payments to be part of your income from OhioHealth. Visit or call the OhioHealth facility to sign up or visit ymcacolumbus.org/join/ohiohealth to sign up for a YMCA membership. New members may be required to complete a fitness assessment and orientation prior to becoming a member at certain facilities.

Diabetes and Asthma Management Programs
