Long Term Gym Memberships Now a Thing of the Past

Long Term Gym Memberships Now a Thing of the Past










Brisbane, Australia (PRWEB) June 2, 2007

Every year hundreds of thousands of people find themselves locked into a contract with their gym or health club, having to pay costly membership fees for a service they no longer require.

Transfermymembership.com is an innovative website developed to assist people wishing to trade unwanted gym memberships.

Fitness Expert/Personal Trainer and founder Mr. Ryan O’Neal recognized considerable demand for a common place where the ownership of unwanted gym/ health club or golf club memberships could be transferred. Mr. O’Neal stated, “Many people buy into a health club contract and for a variety of reasons, they’re unable to fulfill the length of the contract with the health club facility.”

Transfermymembership.com provides consumers from the USA, UK and Australia the opportunity to subscribe to a gym in a more flexible manner than is currently available. For example, if an individual subscribes to a gym and finds that the gym doesn’t exactly fit their exercise interest, or if their financial situation changes throughout the membership they are able to use the website to trade the length of their remaining gym membership to another owner.

The increased transferability of memberships enabled by Transfermymembership.com not only provides greater flexibility for the consumer but will also enhance a health club’s ability to attract members whose future is uncertain. Mr. O’Neal explains “Transfermymembership.com can be effectively used by health clubs as a selling tool, as it enables them to more easily sell yearly memberships to patrons who are concerned about being locked into an annual contract. At present many people shy away from month to month memberships because of the hefty membership fees involved with subscribing in this manner.”

The Oxygen Plan and The Rochester Athletic Club Team Up to Reduce Stress

The Oxygen Plan and The Rochester Athletic Club Team Up to Reduce Stress













Stress Test – The Oxygen Plan


Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) May 31, 2011

Employee stress drains $ 400 billion a year from U.S. employers–almost $ 5,000 per employee/year. Stress is the number one modifiable health risk in the United States and is linked to several chronic conditions. Stress also impacts short term health and wellness because people are more likely to eat emotionally, drink, smoke or engage in risky behavior when they are stressed.

When it comes to the health club industry, stress is one of the biggest obstacles members encounter in the pursuit of their goals. The stress from a few different dimensions — work, home and social stress, along with the internal stress of behavior change inherent with trying something new, can be huge obstacles for health club members. Stress leads to missed workouts, lack of energy and poor adherence to personal goals. Stress also negatively impacts sleep quantity and quality.

Consistent with its overall strategy of providing innovative holistic solutions for behavior change for its members, The Rochester Athletic Club is implementing The Oxygen Plan. “We see The Oxygen Plan as a great companion program to what we deliver,” says Wes Emmert, Fitness Director at The Rochester Athletic Club. “For optimal results, the ideal program encompasses much more than simply working out at the gym. Lifestyle choices and behaviors are fundamental to reaching the desired outcomes. We believe The Oxygen Plan’s user friendly system is a significant innovation for the health club industry.”

The entire training staff has been trained on using The Oxygen Plan online to help members reduce stress. Through August, The Rochester Athletic Club and The Oxygen Plan will waive the $ 9/month subscription fee. Interested RAC members and nonmembers alike can contact anyone on the fitness staff to get started.

About The Oxygen Plan

The Oxygen Plan is a revolutionary new behavior change program designed to help employees recognize and reduce stress, live healthier, happier lives while helping employers lower health care costs and improve productivity and employee engagement. The Oxygen Plan, co-developed by Dr. Donald E. Williams, board-certified clinical health psychologist (American Board of Professional Psychology/ABPP), and Chief Science Officer, and Founder, Eric Lucas, is the only stress reduction program to use a patent-pending green, yellow, red color coding to easily facilitate stress recognition and behavior change for individuals and organizations. The Oxygen Plan is also the home of the Stress Number™, the new health metric, and first to quantify stress levels. For more information visit http://www.theoxygenplan.com
