Membership Discounts for Military, First Responders, etc

May 27th, 2021

Does your facility offer membership discounts for military or first responders? How much of a discount should you offer? These are questions that get asked by facilities but also a question that not all potential members would think to ask before signing up with your facility.

Here is a breakdown of some discounts offered:

  • Waive annual maintenance fee
  • Corporate rates
  • 10-15% discount for military (active/retired)
  • 10% discount for first responders
    • A facility let us know that they offer a whopping 40% discount!!
    • Another facility offers a 25% discount to law enforcement and EMT while fire fighters enjoy a 100% discount!!

We cannot recommend enough that if you are going to offer a discount of any kind that you have a written policy.

  • What type of membership is required to receive the discount ( single/family, annual membership, paid in full membership, daily rates discounted?)?
  • Do family members get to enjoy the discount as well?
  • When you offer a military discount include who the discount applies to; such as all military, only active duty, not including Guard, or if leave paperwork is required to receive a daily discount.

Memorial Day 2021

May 31st, 2021


Memorial Day holds a special place in our hearts. This is a day meant to remember and honor the women and men who died while serving in the US Military. Many of us use this weekend to kick off our summer events of camping, grilling out, and connecting with family and friends. We ask you to take just a few moments and reflect on what this day means to you and the reason we celebrate/honor those who died for our country.



Our office will be closed on Monday, May 31st. We will be back at 8am Tuesday morning and ready for the submission of May workouts.
