Employees now can stay healthy with LA Fitness

University and Emory Healthcare employees and their families are invited to join Georgia’s LA Fitness sports clubs. With LA Fitness locations across Atlanta, it just became that much easier to exercise and stay healthy at a location close to home or work.

LA Fitness sports clubs feature elliptical cross-trainers, multilevel aerobic programs, indoor cycling classes, kick boxing, racquetball courts, full court basketball, swimming pools, saunas and baby-sitting, to name just a few of their services and activities.

Emory employees may now join LA Fitness for the monthly rate of $34.99 with no initiation fee. To join, individuals must pay the first and last months’ dues up front and provide banking or credit card information for automatic monthly withdrawal. To qualify for this membership, employees will need to show their Emory ID as proof of employment and a driver’s license at any Georgia LA Fitness location. The offer expires March 15, 2006.

Area locations include: Akers Mill II, Ansley Mall, Austell, East Cobb, Holcomb Bridge at GA-400, Johns Creek, Kennesaw/Town Creek, Lenox/Buckhead, Midtown @ Technology Square, Northlake, Peachtree Corners, Perimeter Point, Roswell West, Snellville, Southlake, Sugarloaf and Toco Hills.

The program is not meant to replace the exercise resources already available at Emory, but as an alternative for those employees (and their family members) who do not have easy access to an Emory location or prefer to exercise closer to home. Existing Emory facilities include the Blomeyer Health Fitness Center, Plaza Executive Health Club, Woodruff P.E. Center, Clairmont Campus’ Student Activity and Academic Center, Oxford’s Williams Gymnasium, and the Covington Athletic Club.
