Reimbursement

 

Receive Up to $100:

The University may reimburse you up to $100.00/year for a membership to any commercial fitness facility OTHER than LA Fitness or SamFit.

Some gyms offer a discount to WesternU students – please see below for additional locations that are eligible for reimbursement.

Exclusions Apply:

Student must be enrolled in a membership (monthly or annual) to any commercial fitness facility or online gym membership. Purchasing a set/package/plan of individual classes does not constitute a membership (e.g. yoga classes, cycling, etc.).

Only one reimbursement request accepted per student each academic year.

Deadlines:

The deadline to submit your paperwork is determined by how you pay for the membership.  Please see below.

  • The membership must be in your name. 
  • If prepaid, must show proof of payment for the full year. 
  • If monthly, you must have proof of payment for at least 8-months (payments can be made to different locations. For example: online gym for 4 months and then an in-person gym for 4 months) 
  • The online membership must have a physical fitness/activity component. 
  • Class passes, punch cards, home equipment and supplies are not eligible.
  • Only one reimbursement request accepted per student each academic year.
