I signed up for a World Gym Membership during the December 2011 enrollment period. What do I need to do to keep my gym membership?
For your gym membership to continue, you will need to complete the Health Risk Assessment (HRA) and biometrics each year. Please attend one of the sign-up sessions to complete them.
I was a gym member a few years ago/my membership expired a few months ago, but I no longer have an active gym membership. Do I need to pay the $20 enrollment fee?
You are considered a "new" World Gym member if you do not have an active membership at the time of sign-up and will have to pay the $20 enrollment fee. World Gym management determines whether the enrollment fee must be paid in cases of recent membership expiration. All questions regarding the enrollment fee should be directed to World Gym management.
What is included with my Gym Membership?
Each gym membership is a 1-Year Unlimited membership. This means there is no limit to the number of times you can use a given gym per day. All classes offered by World Gym are included at no additional cost. Childcare is not included in your World Gym Membership.
Can family members sign up?
Family members are eligible to sign-up. Any family member who signs up is required to complete the biometrics (height, weight, blood pressure and body composition). Family members 18 or older are required to complete the online Health Risk Assessment questionnaire. The Arc employee must be present when the family member signs up to sign the payroll deduction form. If the Arc employee is not present, the family member will not be able to complete the sign-up process.
I don't want a Gym Membership or a Weight Management Program. Can I just do the Health Risk Assessment (HRA)?
You are not required to sign-up for a gym membership or weight management program. However, the cost of your HRA will be deducted from your payroll. The cost of the HRA is $26, which is processed as a $1.00 biweekly payroll deduction.
Can I pay for my Gym Membership/Weight Management Program(s)/HRA up front, when I sign-up?
To receive the discounted rates for any program incentives, they must be processed through payroll deduction.
If I sign up for a Gym Membership/Weight Management Program, is there a charge for the HRA?
The cost of the HRA is waived if you sign up for a Gym Membership or Weight Management Program,
I already have a Gym Membership. Can I still sign-up? How does that work?
If you are currently a World Gym Member, you can sign for the program. We do what is called a “Contract Rewrite” for your gym membership. You will get a new KeepWell@Work Key Tag. Your membership will start on the day you sign up. Your monthly rate will change from your non-KeepWell@Work rate to the $15.00 per month rate on your next billing cycle. The $20 new member enrollment fee is waived for contract rewrites.
I would like to sign up for more than one Weight Management Program. Is that allowed?
Yes. You can sign up for multiple Weight Management Programs. Each program costs $10.00 per month.
I would like to cancel a program I signed up for. What do I need to do?
You will need to complete the cancellation form. You can complete the cancellation form at one of the sign up sessions or you can visit the KeepWell Center at Calvert Memorial Hospital to complete the form.
I currently pay for childcare with my Gym Membership now. Can I pay for World Gym Childcare through payroll deduction?
Childcare fees cannot be processed through payroll deduction. You will still have to pay for the childcare separate from the payroll deduction.
Does the World Gym Membership include the Wilson Ennis Clubhouse?
Memberships for the Wilson Ennis Clubhouse are separate from the Corporate World Gym Memberships. However, we do offer a corporate membership that includes both the Wilson Ennis Clubhouse and World Gym at a rate of $19.99 per month.
Do you offer memberships for the Aquatic Center?
Currently we do not offer any memberships to the aquatic center.
Do I need to bring anything with me to sign up?
We have all of the materials you need to sign up at the session. If you are interested in submitting recent lab work, you can bring a copy to your sign up session to be included with your report.
When can I expect to receive my Personal Wellness Profile (PWP) Report?
You can expect to receive your PWP Report approximately two weeks after the end of the enrollment period (not your completion date). We wait until the end of the enrollment period to give each employee a chance to complete their questionnaire and biometrics before we begin processing the reports. It takes approximately two weeks to process all of the reports. Once each person’s report has been completed, they are sent to the email that was provided at your sign-up session.
How does the payroll deduction work?
Payroll deductions are taken biweekly. The amount of the deduction is determined by multiplying the total monthly amount by 12 (for 12 months in a year). That monetary amount is then divided by 26 (representing the 26 pay periods in one year). That amount is your biweekly payroll deduction. It will come out of your paycheck every two weeks. See below for the mathematic breakdown:
- ($15 per month) x (12 months) = $180 per year
- ($180 per year) / (26 pay periods in one year) = $6.92 payroll deduction every two weeks
Weight Management program
- ($10 per month) x (12 months) = $120 per year
- ($120 per year) / (26 pay periods in one year) = $4.62 payroll deduction every two weeks
I am a part-time ARC employee. Am I eligible to participate in the program?
We can check to confirm if you are eligible when you submit a user ID request form or at one of the sign-up sessions. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or 410-535-8233 to confirm your eligibility.
Who determines program eligibility?
Program eligibility is determined by the ARC. If you have questions about your eligibility, please contact an ARC Human Resource representative.
