Everything you need to know about your Vitality Gym Benefit 2021


The more you train, the more rewards you gain with Vitality. When you go back to gym, remember, it's safety first. Here's how you can keep getting active and rewarded at the gym with Vitality and Discovery Bank in 2021.

Virgin Active and Planet Fitness are welcoming Vitality members back to the gym. They've put strict safety and hygiene protocols in place to keep you safe and would like to encourage you to include gym workouts in your fitness routine.

Remember, keep yourself and others safe by wearing a face mask, maintaining a safe physical distance of 1.5 m or more, and washing and sanitising your hands regularly. Only exercise if you feel well enough to do so.

Earn 50 Vitality points for your home workouts

Not ready to return to the gym? You can still earn 50 Vitality fitness points a day for doing online workouts. You can earn up to 1 200 Vitality fitness points a month for your home workouts and tracking your daily steps with a Vitality-linked fitness device, so get moving today!

Here's how you can access online workouts with Virgin Active or Planet Fitness:

We will continue to top up your gym workouts until further notice. Keep an eye on the Vitality latest news page for regular updates and information.

If you are over 60 years old or living with a chronic condition, speak to your doctor about where and how to exercise safely to minimise your exposure to COVID-19.

For any questions on freezing or unfreezing your gym membership, please contact your gym directly.
