What’s on offer?
Selecting your gym membership through GymFlex gives you access to the corporate discount offered by participating clubs.
Your company will purchase your annual membership on your behalf allowing you to take advantage of the lower “paid up front” corporate rate. Your salary is then adjusted accordingly on a monthly basis.
Savings can be made both for existing members and new joiners. Any joining or admin fees charged by a club are included in the membership fee quoted; there are no hidden costs to worry about.
A range of membership options are available, including reciprocal memberships entitling you to use all clubs within a group or chain.
PLEASE NOTE: Currently FC are unable to offer NI savings. Please disregard the figures quoted on the gymflex website.
Next enrolment window open 10th December 2018 - closes 14th January 2019 - memberships go live 1st February 2019.

What if my gym isn’t currently listed?
So the process can be managed more effectively you will have to go to the GymFlex website to request a club. Once logged on using your Company’s password you should search for your club by postcode.

Please note, due to the number of requests we receive, we will only contact you if we successfully recruit your requested gym.
GymFlex are currently unable to provide memberships at Fusion.
What if I am already a member?
Existing members paying by direct debit can transfer their membership without penalty. Even if you are in a fixed term contract it may be possible to transfer over. This will be highlighted on the GymFlex website at www.gymflex.co.uk. If you are an existing member select ‘existing member’ during the GymFlex registration process and enter your membership number when prompted.
When will my membership start and what do I need to do next?
Your membership will commence from the 1st of the month following the selection window. In most cases your chosen club will notify you prior to this date. In the unlikely event that you have not heard anything from your club, simply contact them after this date quoting GymFlex and your surname. If you experience any problems with your new membership please call GymFlex immediately on 0845 300 6474.
What if my circumstances change?
Your gym membership through GymFlex is a 12 month non-cancellable contract with your chosen gym and you are therefore not able to make any changes when you have a life event (i.e. marriage, leave employment, etc). If you move house, you may be able to transfer within your chain if you have a reciprocal membership option. This is treated on a case by case basis so please call GymFlex on 0845 300 6474 to discuss your specific circumstances.
Who is eligible?
Every employee of Flight Centre that has completed initial Induction Training is eligible.
What happens if I leave the Company?
If you take out gym membership and leave before the end of the scheme year you will be liable to pay the balance of your membership from your final salary. You will be able to continue to use your gym membership until it expires. Your HR representative will discuss the specifics with you as part of your leaving arrangements.
