The ExerciseRewards Program
The ExerciseRewards Program
The ExerciseRewards Program offers two options to meet your fitness needs:
  1. Get Paid for Working Out
    The ExerciseRewards Program is a fitness facility reimbursement program available only to SimplyBlue Plus members in addition to Base, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Bassett Preferred Gold, Bassett Preferred Silver and CNY Preferred Gold members. The program is also available as an option with Healthy Blue and Excellus PPO/EPO. As covered members on a policy, subscribers and their spouse or domestic partner can receive up to $600 a year to help pay for their fitness facility memberships. (Every six months, subscribers can earn up to $200 and their eligible spouse/domestic partner can earn up to $100).
  2. As of January 1, 2015...Get Paid for attending Exercise Classes
    We will also reimburse fees paid for exercise classes taken at a qualified fitness facility (e.g., yoga, pilates, spinning). To qualify for reimbursement you must show that you’ve worked out at least 50 times within a 6 month period utilizing one of the following or a combination of both.
    • Workout at a qualified fitness facility
    • Attend an individual class at a qualified fitness facility
Choose Your Fitness Facility
You can choose your own fitness club or exercise center, or log into ExerciseRewards to view a list of participating ExerciseRewards fitness facilities and print a voucher for:
  • 10% or more discount on enrollment fees and/or membership dues
  • Free one-week trial (limited to three facilities)

*Please note: If the fitness facility that you use is not a participating ExerciseRewards facility it isn’t a problem. If it meets the fitness facility qualifications, our program will enable you to continue using the facility of your choice and you will be reimbursed.
