Henrico County Partners With Local Gyms…

by Liz Stovall, Division Manager- Fitness and Wellness

Just in time for New Year Resolutions!

The County is committed to employee wellness and another way to reinforce that commitment is here!  Full-time and permanent part-time employees can take advantage of discounted gym membership rates, special offers, and in some cases, additional services like diabetes management programming, child care services and volunteering opportunities in the community. The new gym membership discounts are an example of Power Henrico living up to its mission – to provide a workplace that partners with employees in their efforts to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

In addition to no-cost access to both the Training Center fitness facilities and the Eastern Henrico Recreation Center, County employees can now take advantage of discounted membership rates to all Greater Richmond YMCAs, all nine American Family Fitness locations, a select number of Gold’s Gym locations, and a 60-day low-cost trial membership to both the Short Pump and Midlothian ACAC Fitness and Wellness Centers.

With encouragement and support from our County Manager, who believes County employees “have the ability and power to change themselves by engaging in wellness opportunities to get to a place of better health,” these new opportunities are now available. It is easier than ever to remove the barriers, whether financial, schedule, or physical location, to fully participate in wellness and fitness services in and around Henrico County.

For additional information on discounted membership rates, trial offers, and specialty programming like child care services and volunteering opportunities offered through the Greater Richmond YMCA and our other wellness partners, visit the ‘Local Gym Partnerships’ page found on the Power Henrico website under the ‘Active’ tab.
