Active&Fit Direct

Affordable and Flexible Fitness

The path to being healthy is different for everyone. Some folks prefer to stay active outdoors while others enjoy exercising at home.

For many people, a fitness center provides a great option for getting fit and staying healthy. A fitness center can provide motivation by allowing members to exercise among like-minded people who enjoy the same activities, such as walking, running, lifting weights, swimming or playing basketball. A fitness center also offers quality equipment, training and resources that most people don’t have at home.

While joining a fitness center may be intimidating—and sometimes expensive—it doesn’t have to be. AAA Minneapolis has recently teamed up with the Active&Fit Direct™ program, which is designed to help members live healthier, more active lives, without breaking the bank. For $25 per month with a $25 enrollment fee (plus any applicable taxes), AAA members can enroll in this program which provides access to over 10,000 participating fitness centers and select YMCAs nationwide at just a fraction of average market prices. Sounds too good to be true? Here is the skinny on Active&Fit Direct.

So Many Options

The Active&Fit Direct program contracts with top fitness centers to provide members with access to centers across the country ranging from conventional gyms to studios with yoga, cycling and more. There are dozens of participating fitness centers in the Twin Cities including select locations of Snap Fitness, Anytime Fitness, Planet Fitness, LA Fitness, Curves and others. Many participating fitness centers even offer free guest passes to try out before enrolling. The Active&Fit Direct program provides participants with many options, no matter what your personal fitness goals are.

Affordable and Flexible

One of the things that makes the Active&Fit Direct program appealing is that it’s affordable, especially since participants have access to so many participating locations across the country. To join, there is a one-time $25 enrollment fee, and then the cost is $25 per month plus applicable taxes. To enroll, you must pay the up-front enrollment fee and your first two months’ fees plus applicable taxes. The program only requires a three-month commitment—afterward, participation is month-to-month, which also relives the stress of long-term contracts. Plus, there are no penalties for canceling after the initial three-month commitment.

Easy Enrollment

Active&Fit Direct is a AAA Minneapolis Discounts & Rewards partner, and participants must be current AAA members and 18 or older.
