Equipsme Gym discounts – keep your people moving

Equipsme Gym discounts keep your people moving

Subsidised gym memberships are a great way to support your employees’ health and fitness goals – but did you know they’re already part of your existing company Equipsme plan?

Why movement matters

According to the government, one in four people are physically inactive. That means they’re not moving around enough in the day to keep their bodies healthy.

The NHS recommends 150 minutes of moderate activity a week, because regular physical activity has been shown to treat, manage and prevent up to twenty different lifestyle-related conditions, including heart disease, cancers, stroke, diabetes and depression.

Many adults in the UK spend around 9 hours a day sitting, including time watching TV, reading, travelling by car, train or bus – and sitting at a computer at work. And if workplaces are part of the problem, they should also seek to be part of the solution.

Encouraging your people to move more can help prevent health issues, including musculoskeletal problems, which account for more than 10% of all sickness absence in the UK.

How businesses can help

Businesses can help encourage more movement as part of wider health and wellbeing strategies - for instance by introducing campaigns or charity challenges, by providing standing desks and standing meeting rooms, and by including things like gym discounts as part of their employee benefits.

The good news is that thanks to our relationship with AXA Health, all Equipsme members get access to AXA Health perks – including up to 40% gym discounts for themselves and family they’ve added to their plan.

If you haven’t already shouted about Equipsme gym discounts as part of your health and wellbeing communications, it’s time to remind your employees about the added-extra Equipsme benefits available to them.
