Cuddling up with a blanket and comfort food is much more appealing than venturing out into the cold to go to the gym during the winter. For some people, the extra leisure time and decadent foods associated with the holidays may lead to weight gain. Do you need to work off extra pounds picked up throughout the season? Well, we’ve got a special deal to help.
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network members can get a gym membership that offers the flexibility of working out at more than 9,500 gym locations for only $25 a month and a one-time $25 enrollment fee. This offer is available through our member discount program, Blue365®, and Tivity Health® Fitness Your Way.
This gym membership allows you to work out at any participating location at any time. If you want to take a Zumba class at LA Fitness in the morning and hit the weight room at Powerhouse in the evening, you can. You have the flexibility of working out at any participating gym.
Tivity Health will offer a special promotion to waive the current $25 enrollment fee for the month of December. We encourage members to join while they still qualify for the current $25 rate, which will raise to $29 effective January 1,2018.

This is just one of the many discounts available through Blue365. You can learn more about the program through your member account at bcbsm.com or the Blue Cross mobile app
As a Blue Cross employee (and member) I signed up for Healthways and joined LA Fitness in Allen Park. I used to belong to the $10 a month gym, but I’m excited that this program gives me access to a facility with a pool, sauna, group workout classes and more. Plus if I travel for work or want to check out a different location, I don’t have to sign up for a different membership.
Still on the fence? Check out what some other Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan team members have to say about the program below:
“Joining the Healthways program is a convenient and budget friendly way to get fit. Last year I trained for a sprint triathlon and my Healthways membership helped me find a gym with a pool that was both within my budget and close to home.” – Helen Carlisle, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan
“Using Healthways saved me money on my LA Fitness gym membership. I like that there is also a yoga studio in the network that is just up the street from my house. I have more options to exercise for less money a month.” – Jennifer McCallion, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan
