Fitness Benefits Options For Students 

Considering a fitness membership for the 2022-2023 academic year? See below for your options!

Alumni: Did you graduate this year? We have benefits for you, too! Visit the Alumni Affairs webpage to learn more.


Given the concerns with the coronavirus, you are strongly encouraged to research your options before purchasing. Please keep in mind that gyms may experience forced closures during your active membership. Many gyms are not offering refunds for their closure dates but may compensate members in alternative methods.

You are not required to select a fitness benefit. However, if you choose to there are two options available to you. Only one option per student and benefits are evaluated annually and are subject to change.

For any of the options below please remember that the student benefit is up to $100 either via a reimbursement or a subsidized membership to SamFit. The memberships must be active for at least 10-months of the current academic year (July 1-June 30).  If you are starting a new membership you must purchase between July 1st. and September 1st to meet this requirement.
