It’s well understood that working out makes our bodies both stronger and healthier, but sometimes it’s hard to find the motivation to get to the gym. Luckily, LA Fitness has developed a program for our members called VIP Rewards. For every Qualified Referral* who joins within 90 days using the VIP Guest Pass sent to their email address you will receive 1,000 points! These points can be redeemed for incredible rewards, such as an LA Fitness tote bag or an LA Fitness matte black double stainless steel bottle – helping to quench your thirst through those calorie-burning workouts. You also have the chance to earn an Apple Watch® or Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones*!
But, why refer a friend? According to Fitness Health 101, “over the years, statistics have shown that individuals that work out with a partner have a higher probability of reaching their personal fitness goals.”1 When you have someone to workout with, you are more likely to be motivated to hit the gym and develop a more consistent workout schedule. Not only that, but it’s more fun! With a workout partner there is an underlying desire to challenge one another to step up your workout game. Try finding someone with a similiar fitness level as you and help encourage each other to maintain that healthy lifestyle!
In a study referenced by Men’s Fitness, “overweight people tend to lose more weight if they spend time with their fit friends—and the more time they spend together, the more weight they lose.”2 Interestingly enough, this works with happiness as well.3 Whatever your personal reason for working out may be, at LA Fitness you are given access to body-strengthening weights, strength and cardio equipment to help you reach your fitness goal.
