What is One Pass Select™?

One Pass Select is a fitness and well-being subscription service that’s designed around you and your goals. There are FIVE membership tiers to choose from, with the option to change tiers monthly.

One Pass Select provides access to over 19,000 gyms and studios. Members have multi-location access, which allows subscribers to join multiple locations at a time. We’ll say it again, this means you can use multiple fitness locations during the same month! You will need to present your member code to each new participating fitness location you want to use. The location will enroll you in the gym, providing access to a standard membership and classes at no additional cost. You can even use locations while traveling. If you are so inclined, this means you can go to LA Fitness on Monday, Fitness 19 on Tuesday, 24 Hour Fitness on Wednesday, Crunch on Thursday, Esporta on Friday, Chuze on Saturday, and Gold’s Gym on Sunday as long as the locations are within your tier. As you go up in tier, it encompasses all the tiers below it!

The digital membership tier provides you discounted access to thousands of on-demand and livestreaming exercise classes through different online fitness partners.

Select tiers of One Pass Select offer free access to grocery and household delivery services that provide the convenience of having healthy foods delivered to your home (included in all memberships except ‘Digital’).

Please read all of the details below to determine if this benefit is right for you. As students, you are still eligible to get reimbursed up to $100 but as this membership is paid monthly, you won’t receive your reimbursement until after you’ve paid for 10 consecutive months within the current academic year (July-June). The deadline to submit requests is June 1st annually.

  • Step 1: Do your Research

    As part of One Pass Select, participating gyms and fitness studios will provide access to the standard services, amenities, or number of classes normally part of the participating fitness location’s standard membership offering. Contact the specific location(s) you are interested in joining to learn more.

    You will receive a standard membership or class package with your One Pass Select enrollment. Extra services that consist of additional fees (such as personal training, fee-based group fitness classes or additional classes outside of the standard membership offering) are not included and will have to be paid for out of pocket through your gym or fitness center. Contact the specific location(s) you are interested in joining to learn more. Other restrictions may apply as set forth in the applicable Terms and Conditions.

    While most locations are unlimited, some fitness studios such as Pure Barre, Orangetheory and Club Pilates have monthly visit limits by location. This will be noted on One Pass Select | Locations under the location’s “Details”. Call your location or the member support number for specific membership details.

    Visit the One Pass site to see if it’s right for you. Search available locations, familiarize yourself with the tiers, review the family member options and the grocery delivery benefit (included in all membership except ‘Digital’)
