The IHRSA Passport Program

Worldwide Guest Privileges for Your Members Who Travel

IHRSA members say our Passport Program is one of their most valued membership benefits, and it’s no wonder why. The IHRSA Passport Program helps your members stay in shape even when they’re hundreds, or even thousands, of miles away from your club.

The IHRSA Passport Program entitles members of participating clubs to enjoy guest access at more than 1,700 clubs worldwide when they travel. Participation is free to IHRSA clubs, but enrollment is required.

How the IHRSA Passport Program Works

The Passport Program is easy for clubs to implement and even easier for your members to use! They need only follow a few basic steps:

  1. Obtain valid Passport I.D. from their home club
  2. Visit healthclubs.com/passport to locate a club in the area where they will be traveling
  3. Call ahead to confirm the availability of the facilities, as well as any guest fees that may apply

Upon arrival at the club, they present their Passport I.D., pay the guest fee, and they’re in!

Participation Requirements

  • It's reciprocal! Clubs that participate must be willing to accept Passport guests from other participating clubs (located at least 50 miles/80 kilometers away).
  • Regular guest fees discounted by at least 50%. As a condition of participation, clubs are required to discount their regular guest fee by at least 50% for Passport guests.

Important Reminders about the IHRSA Passport Program

  • The IHRSA Passport Program is not intended for temporary membership privileges, or for transferring a membership. It is designed for use on a short-term visitation basis only. Any offer extended beyond this time is left to the discretion of the host club.
  • Passport guests may only visit clubs that are located at least 50 miles/80 kilometers away from your home club.
  • Passport guests should be treated with the same level of respect as your own members.
  • Not all IHRSA clubs choose to participate in the program, but only IHRSA clubs are eligible.
  • For your protection, IHRSA suggests that clubs always ask for proper identification from your Passport guests.

Is My Club Already Enrolled?

To find out, visit healthclubs.com/passport and conduct a search in the area where your club is located. Only clubs that participate will appear in the search results.

“We’re always looking for ways to serve our members’ wellness needs. And, with the Passport Program, we can help them find an IHRSA club that will let them stick with their exercise programs while traveling on business or vacation and save on guest fees. It shows our members that they’re special to us—and to all of the clubs participating in the IHRSA Passport Program.”
