What gym memberships are available through Justworks?
Justworks partners with both New York Health and Racquet Club, Town Sports International (operating under the names New York Sports Club, Boston Sports Club, Philadelphia Sports Club, and Washington Sports Club), and ClassPass. The selection of which memberships are available to you will depend on your location.
How does the Justworks integration work?
The partnership is fully integrated into the Justworks platform. Once you sign up on this form to offer the benefit, our team will complete set up and send you an email confirmation when it's read for employee enrollment.
Next, employees can opt-in to memberships through their Justworks account. Monthly fees are deducted automatically from payroll, to keep billing simple. If you choose to contribute toward the monthly membership, we’ll charge you each billing cycle for all participating employees.
How much do gym memberships cost?
Through Justworks, employees and their spouses or domestic partners have access to lower membership rates than individuals are eligible for on their own, with discounts reaching as high as 50% in some areas.
In addition to the discount, you have the option to contribute a dollar amount of your choice toward employee memberships. Simply pass along the discounted rates, or delight your employees by covering a portion of the membership—or the entire monthly fee.
The selection of gyms and levels of memberships varies by location.
Can we start offering access to gym memberships at any time?
Yes, your company can decide to start offer access to gym memberships at any time throughout the year. All you need to do is head to Benefits in your company account and click "add more benefits" and then select the option for gyms.
When do membership starts?
Regardless of the gym your employees pick, memberships will start the next business day after they sign up for a gym membership. We will not bill employees for the month they sign up (that one is free!). Employees will start to be billed for the following month of membership and they'll see that charge on the 2nd payroll of the month prior. Billing always happens in advance of the month of membership. For example, if an employee signs up on May 15, the month of May is free. Their first bill will happen on the May 31 payroll and it will be for the month of June.
