Money Hacks: Save money on your New Year’s health resolution
Get discounted gym memberships with AIA Vitality.
Is 2019 the year of #NewYearNewYou? Every year the number one item at the top of New Year's Resolution lists is getting fit and staying that way. And how do we plan on getting fit? By running out and signing up for a brand new and possibly expensive gym membership, of course.
Unfortunately for many of us come February, we're back on the couch, shotgunning a pizza and bingeing the latest reality TV craze... so probably Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. No matter whether you see out the year with your resolutions intact or your resolutions fall by the wayside, there is still the cost of a gym membership to consider.
Save up to 50% on your gym membership costs if you're an AIA Vitality member.
If you have health insurance with myOwn or life insurance with AIA you may be a member of AIA vitality. For the uninitiated, AIA Vitality is a health and wellness program. There are various benefits members can enjoy including smoking cessation programs, discounts on wearables such as Fitbit and Garmin, rewards based on maintaining a healthy lifestyle and discounted travel.
However, one of the major AIA Vitality benefits is discounted gym membership, which ranges from discounts on joining and monthly fees to cashback offers based on the frequency with which you attend the gym.
If you're looking for a new gym and are weighing up things like location, classes and the overall cost, these discounts might help you find the right gym at the right cost.
|Gym||Number of gyms||Joining fee?||Cost||24 hours?||Classes|
