What Gympass is and how it works

Gympass is an application that offers subscription plans that give access to gyms in Brazil and worldwide. Users can enjoy several gyms, studios, live classes and virtual training for just a monthly fee.

Available for iOS and Android, the corporate physical activity platform is available in 12 countries around the globe, including Brazil. Altogether, the app totals more than 50 thousand partner establishments that allow subscribers to participate in in-person classes or online training.

How does Gympass work?

Corporate benefit users have at their disposal various activities, such as weight training, Pilates, massage, yoga and even meditation. Activities can be either face-to-face or online — the latter either live or via virtual training via partner applications. To take advantage of all offers, you must select a plan and have an active subscription.

One of the biggest advantages of the platform is the possibility to use the services of different accredited establishments without having to pay any extra fees. You can, for example, enjoy a relaxing massage today near work and train with an online personal trainer tomorrow. In the application itself, it is possible to see a list of professionals included in the signed plan, their specializations and the times available for conducting live online classes.

The app can be used daily, at any time, as long as the partner location is open and working, and respecting the limit of one use per day. In other words, it is not possible to activate the application two or more times in the same day, regardless of the selected activity mode.

Who can access the service?

Anyone can download the app and register. But, as this is a corporate benefit, your employer must purchase one of the available business plans. There are different subscription fees aimed at companies of different sizes and numbers of employees.

Gympass also allows eligible users to give access to the platform to their legal dependents, but who will decide whether or not the benefit can be extended to family members is the contracting company.

To find out if you are eligible, simply check with your company’s Human Resources department or create a free in-app account to check the availability of additional subscriptions for your family members.
