You can use your Health Saving Account (HSA) or your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for your membership! ALSO: anything related to maintaining and gaining a healthy metabolic state, like meal services, nutrition support, belts, wraps, shoes, personal training, seminars, entry fees, et hoc genus omne!

Here’s the cliff notes on how it works: 1) you need a doctors note saying that basically you’re a human, 2) they have a 5 question survey and then a doctor who writes that note, 3) it costs $30 (which you can use your HSA for), and then you’re good to go!

The survery asks about family history and current health issues, but here’s the crux: the medical community has unanimously agreed that exercise is good for your health, and to PREVENT metabolic disease which is now recognized as the precursor to all the nasty nasty (cancer, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, etc) diseases, which means that your pre-tax money set aside for your health can and should be used for anything that will prevent, stave off, or delay the onset of these diseases. Voila!

If you have any questions, please reach out to me! My hope is that this makes it just a bit easier to pay for your membership and with any luck you can get some matching contribution bonus thing from your employer and basically get a free membership! And then maybe you can take some other healthy steps, like a meal service, or nutrition guidance, or massages, lets go!!

I’m not sure if it goes retroactive, but I’d give it a shot if I had an HSA!
