Do you travel outside of your area often? If you do, you know how hard it can be to maintain your healthy habits while you are on the road. It can be tough to eat healthy while traveling and often getting an effective workout in each day can be nearly impossible, especially in those tiny hotel gyms!

The IHRSA Passport Program, however, makes it possible to enjoy workouts on the road that meet your expectations. Because we are a member of IHRSA, the International Health Racquet & Sports Clubs Association, and enrolled in their Passport Program, you have guest privileges to a network of quality clubs when you travel.

What’s more, the IHRSA Passport Program provides you significantly reduced guest fees- a minimum of 50% savings!

Using the IHRSA Passport Program is easy! Just follow these steps:

1. Obtain a valid IHRSA Passport I.D. Ask an employee at your home club for a valid IHRSA passport I.D. for your trip. You will need a new one for each trip.
