Tesco signs Gympass deal to offer discounted fitness to 300,000 staff members

Tesco has signed a corporate fitness deal with Gympass, which will see the retail giant's 300,000 staff members being offered subsidised gym memberships.

The deal will see every Tesco worker – from head office staff to in-store workers and delivery drivers – gain access to Gympass' network of 1,400 fitness facilities in the UK.

In addition to subsidised gym memberships, Gympass will partner Tesco to host live wellness events and breakfasts sessions, engaging directly with employees to "share the benefits of physical activity".

The Gympass platform includes gyms, health clubs and niche fitness studios, ranging from public operators – such as Everyone Active – to large commercial chains such as Snap Fitness and Bannatyne Health Clubs.

James Goodman, people director at Tesco, said the corporate deal is part of a strategy to improve the overall health of its huge workforce.

“Our annual colleague health survey showed that a huge number of our employees struggle to find ways to improve their general health and wellbeing,” Goodman said.

“By partnering with Gympass, we are able to deliver convenient and easily accessible solutions to engage our workforce in greater levels of physical activity.

"The flexible nature of the model makes it the perfect solution for this. Our employees will be able to choose from leisure facilities up and down the country, across multiple price brackets, ensuring they can find the perfect fitness solution for them."

First launched in Brazil in 2012, Gympass set out on a global expansion process in 2015 and is now one of the world's largest global fitness network providers, with operations in 6,000 cities in 14 countries.
