Get Fit for Less with the Well onTarget® Fitness Program

I’m always looking for new ways to be healthy and have a more balanced life because I know being healthy in my daily life will help me avoid health risks in the future. In my search, I discovered the Well onTarget Fitness Program available to me through my Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Montana health insurance. The program gives me an affordable gym membership and discounted access to more than 9,000 fitness clubs across the country. Before I decided to enroll, I did some research. All members who bought a health insurance plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace can join the Fitness Program. If you purchase coverage through your employer, contact your benefits administrator or visit Blue Access for Members℠ to inquire about your benefits. If you need more reasons to join the program, here are a few.

It’s inexpensive.
I can go to any network gyms for a one-time $25 enrollment fee and $25 a month, plus any taxes. When I compared gym prices, I found the Well onTarget Fitness Program is one of the best gym membership deals. The Fitness Program lets you get in shape while saving money.
During the month of August, eligible BCBSMT members can join the Fitness Program with no initiation fee*.

It’s flexible.
I’m so glad there’s no hassle of a yearly commitment and cancellation fees. The Fitness Program is a month to month gym membership. With so many gyms in the network, I can exercise while traveling, too!

It’s convenient.
The network of locations has some of the nation’s leading fitness clubs, regional chains and local facilities. I can fit a quick workout into my day when and where I want because I there’s a network gym near my home and office.

It’s easy to join.
I joined online by logging into my BCBSMT account. (If you are not already registered for Blue Access for Members℠ , you can read more about the benefits in Using Blue Access for Members.) I clicked on “Fitness Program” link in the Quick Links section of the homepage, and followed the steps. It guided me all the way through the registration process.
