What is the International Fitness Club Network (IFCN)?
Since 1991, IFCN has been the world’s largest and most successful network of health and fitness facilities and the leader in wellness programs. We help our clients achieve their goal of living a healthier lifestyle, regardless of their current fitness level. IFCN is made up of over 13,500 health clubs around the world. With an IFCN membership, you will receive one free week trial membership and the IFCN corporate rate. For more information about rates, contact the club directly 24/7 at 1-800-866-8466.
How can I enroll in a fitness club through IFCN?
It’s easy. Simply log into the IFCN search engine and enter your zip code to find participating clubs near you! If the club you are interested in joining is an IFCN Club, then:
- Make an appointment with the membership department at the club you wish to join.
- Tell the club that you are an IFCN benefit member and include the company through which you receive the benefit (either your employer or your insurance company). You may be asked to prove your employment or insurance.
- The club will give you their IFCN corporate rate.
How soon can I start going to the fitness club?
You can make an appointment with an IFCN Club at any time that is convenient for you.
Are there any additional fees I should be aware of?
When joining an IFCN Club, please review your contract with the club to make sure you are aware of all charges the club will be billing you for membership, and any fees associated with payments that do not go through.
If you join an Anytime Fitness or Snap Fitness facility, you will be required to pay a card fee directly to the club, in addition to their membership dues.
Can any of my family members join an IFCN club?
Yes! IFCN wants you to work out the way YOU want to work out. Most clubs have membership types that include individual, couple and family options. These typically include spouses, domestic partners, and children under the age of 23 who live at home, or are attending school.

If I join an IFCN club, can I use any other club in the network?
Many clubs belong to the International Health, Racquet and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) Passport Travel Program. If you travel more than 50 miles from your primary club, and that club participates in the Passport Travel Program, you have access to use other participating Passport clubs. Some clubs will charge a nominal guest fee. Please inquire with your home club about this program.
Please visit the IHRSA Passport Travel Program website to learn more.
Some providers offer regional and/or national membership options that let you use select clubs within that chain. Please inquire with the club, or contact [email protected] for more information.
What happens if I move outside the network?
Please inquire with the membership department at your club regarding their policies.
Should I call IFCN or my fitness club directly to cancel?
If you joined an IFCN Club, your relationship is directly with the club. All inquiries, including questions about billing, must be directed to the club. If you believe that an IFCN Club is not fulfilling its obligation of offering a free week or providing its “IFCN corporate rate,” please contact IFCN at 1-800-866-8466.
I am already a member of a fitness club in the IFCN network; can I still get a discount?
IFCN is for new members. If you are a current member, you must fulfill your contractual obligations with the club. When your membership is up for renewal you can ask the club for the IFCN Corporate Rate.
Can I freeze my account/membership, and if so, for how long?
Since you join all IFCN Clubs directly, you will need to speak with the membership department of your club regarding their policies.
What amenities do the fitness clubs in your network have?
