IHRSA Passport Program aims to provide easy and affordable access to gyms worldwide
Working in partnership with technology platform TrainAway, the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) has launched its global Passport Program, giving access to more than 1,000 fitness clubs around the world.
The Passport Program enables members of IHRSA affiliated clubs to access clubs all over the world, with users of the TrainAway mobile app able to benefit from a 25% discount off the guest pass fee at participating IHRSA facilities.
The TrainAway mobile app is free to download, and users can purchase guest passes at partner gyms in 44 countries. In addition to English, the TrainAway app is available in Portuguese, French, Spanish, Italian, German, and Russian, with more languages on the way.
Explaining that TrainAway was chosen by IHRSA last year to administer the Passport Program for consumers and gyms alike, IHRSA Senior Service Project Manager, Tara Verity explains “the key to making New Year's fitness resolutions stick is three-fold.
"It requires setting realistic goals, maintaining a positive attitude toward exercise, and building a support network to keep it going. Health clubs can help with all three."
IHRSA is mindful that access to state-of-the-art equipment, a variety of classes, personal trainers, and professional instructors helps members keep routines varied and interesting. Additionally, it helps set the right level of challenge for their individual needs.
How the IHRSA Passport Program Works
Members of gyms that are part of the IHRSA Passport Program can use the TrainAway app to search for and purchase a discounted one-day pass at participating health clubs. Gym-goers can find a participating club and receive the 25% discount by activating their experience using an invitation code provided by their home club.
Members of gyms that are not part of the IHRSA Passport Program can still purchase one-day passes for TrainAway partner gyms at full price. Health club goers should ask their gym if it participates in the program. Download the TrainAway app on your Apple or Android device.
