Hi guys , i dont know if this has been posted before but i currently use this and its a way to get cheap gym membership.

Pru health is private health insurance starting from 15.39 - thats a core plan with 1000 excess. Now at this stage if you want private health care get one with no excess will come to about £20 a month.

The key is , you sign up to pruhealth, (theres no contract here, can cancel when u want.) then you can join a gym through them , cannons or la fitness or virgin active i believe, i currently am with cannons through this and i end up paying 15.39 a month for full gym membership and the health care. thats considerably less that cannons £44 a month basic fee.

The only thing is you need to go on average 2 times a week, if you go on average once you end up paying an extra amount , most being 40 a month, still less than cannons standard rate.

Any qus its all answered on there site. really only appeals to people who go gym 2 or more times a week and don't want to pay full wack.

forgot to mention quidco - http://www.quidco.com/pru-health/ upto £190 back, wish i new about quidco when i signed up for it lol

You also get discounted Virgin Active membership, depending on location. According to the adverts on the tube anyway. It's a good idea if you don't have health insurance.
#3
What makes this deal hot is that You gain cash back via Quidco (how much I cant quite remember, it's a lot) I missed out the Quidco and I m joining Virgin Active, £15 a month with its membership with a 25m swimming pool, decent!
#4
Even it was posted before it shouldnt be cold ... voted warm
#5
Canons, LA Fitness and Virgin Active btw. But you'll see that when you link to it. I'm paying 38 for Fitness First, even with my health it has to be better than that. Let's see.
#6
OP must be 19, superfit and living in a great postcode. I'll give their 39.12 a skip and stick with Fitness First and the NHS. Hot if you can make it work for you.
#7
says cant have £1000 excess on core plan???? so £34.64 for me

maybe not
#8
There aren't any Cannons, Fitness First of Virgin Active near me, shame :( Guess I'll have to stick to paying David Lloyd £45 a month :/
#9
I have been on this membership for over a year. I worked hard to get my vitality points and got platinum level. My monthly membership, for Cannons in Covent Garden, is now £2.45! I also got £115 cashback via Quidco (Which I have received). One of the best deals ever!
#10
Just noticed you get Vitality points for buying Sporting Goods from ebay too!
#11
If i didnt already have private health insurance through my employer and fgree gym membership, this would have been great. - Voted hot
#12
How is your insurance only £15, I have no medical reasons for mine to be £30 on the core (without adding the 1000 excess as the core wont allow this). What’s the score with the £25 membership then £25 a month for 3 months, are the 3 months payments definite?
#13
if you lie and say you are younger than you are you will be able to get it miles cheaper, as long as you are only doing it to get the gym memebership and not to use the health insurance I cant see there being a problem. Does this sound wrong?
#14
What about the £25 join up fee and the £25 a month for the first 3 months you are at the gym

It still works out cheaper, but for the first 3 months it works out more!
#15
how do i get it at 15.39 a month
#16
When i did it about 11 months ago. it worked with a 1000 excess i think you have to ring up to get that excess now. im 21, next month ill be able to tell you what my premium goes down to. i think the new plan they have is you pay more in the first 3 months, when i did it i got the first 6 months free for gym then said i wanted to cancel, then they said will will give you the next 6 months free as long as you visit on average 2 times a week, iin theory you could just pop in and out thats a visit.
#17
What they do is they take your average usage every 3 month, and if it works out that you've been an average of 2 or more times per week, you will pay that rate for the next 3 months. This then happens again 3 months later. So effectively they access your usage every 3 months.

If you haven't been much in a 2 month period, there is nothing stopping you swiping in and out every day on your way to work for the last month (don't have to go use gym, maybe just have a coffee). This will bring your average up and ensure you pay the lowest payment band.

Thats why they charge £25 for the first 3 months - cos they don't know how much you are going to use it so they put everyone on a temporary rate.

Unfortunately, as good a deal as it is, the closest gym available for me would cost me about £32 a month in petrol to go twice a week.

Three times a week (which I would want to go) = £48 a month. Would be miles cheaper using a local gym.

So does this quidco thing still apply?

Yes,
I have recieved my quidco - definitely!
#21
It is a good reminder even though it has been posted before

I have been with pru a while now and as I go regulalrly to the gym I get enough vitality points (a bit like tesco clubcard points) if you get 2000 you get a 100% discount on your premium
so I pay £25 a month in total for healthcare and Gym membership and soon will drop even more . In March I will qualify for free gym membership as I go more than 2 times a week. Its a bit complicated but worth doing as the regular price for me is £39 a month. Plus as you join with pru you only have tp give 1 months notice if you have had enough. My previous gym wanted 6 months notice.

Hey guys, although this deal is quite good, i think there's a better one
Fitness first currently has a deal with Bupa-join Bupa and get 1years free FF membership
My premium is £9, and thats for off-peak membership, for another tenner, you can get full membership, no joining fee, no admin fee
Works out £19 a month for something, even as an NHS employee, is about £28 a month in London

Mine is now £2.45 per month and will stay tht way if I keep my platinum level. And tht's peak at Covent Garden! not just for one year either.
#25
Managed to answer my own question. Information on Bupa and fitness first can be found here http://www.bupa.co.uk/members/asp/members_offers/health/fitness_first/ This also looks like you can use it even if you Bupa membership is through your work. I Shame I don't live nearer a Fitness first.

i did mine back in august, i got £155 cashback from topcashback. before changing to pru i was a member of cannons paying over £40 per month, now it works out to be arount £29.00 p.m. on top of that you get loads of benifits from pru, i just home from a health screening which only cost me £25.00 not the £415 it should be, also the more you go to gym and do other things you get points on you account at pru which gives you more benefits and cheaper rates for stuff. for me changing to pru last year was one of the best moves i made.
#27
The Pru Health deal is a good one, so long as you keep your eye on it! I noticed a few gym visits hadn't made their way onto my statement, so called them up and they added them on. I also had a dispute with them about the date I joined the gym. I joined on the 15th of the month, and they backdated my membership, which meant that I lost out on 2 weeks swiping time!! I complained, and they "made an exception". I seem to have spent a lot of time on the phone to Pru Health! The latest hiccup, was they continued taking my £25 occasional user fee 2 months longer than they should have done - just be wary and keep your eye on your points, and your bank statement! Although the quidco is good (I just got mine after applying in July!!!) it only really counteracts the £25 gym joining fee, and the first 3 months occasional user fee. Thereafter however, the insurance premium is more competitive than if I were to join the gym without going through Pru Health.

This is what I recently wrote about this on another forum:

I joined up to this a couple months ago and received the 1000 boots points and half price Pruhealth insurance offer, which I'm currently paying £13.70 a month but we've had to pay the additional £25 for the first 3 months (currently free with this offer) but you'll require to pay the £25 activation fee regardless of whichever gym you join.

Overall, this would of worked out considerably more expensive but it's the 2nd best offer I've seen since I started considering joining the gym after the summer but my points/cashback hasn't tracked yet.

I highly recommend joining this scheme to use the gym, as this is saving us a good few hundred pounds each for me and my gf and has made us feel much fitter and look better.

Don't forget, if you're only joining up to save £100's for the gym, then I advise answering the 5 questions with "no" and stating you workout over 3 hours per week in order to save money and make sure you also state you would like to receive treatment from hospitals outside London and add excess of £1000 to save even further.

If you're thinking about using the gym for over a year, then make sure you accumulate vitality points, which gives you a discount if you decide to continue your gym membership for the following year, which you could attain by attending the gym more often, having free eye exams, buying veg from Sainsburys, free health check ups, quiting smoking etc all gives you loads of points.

I would only recommend this if you have the will power to attend long term at least twice a week, otherwise your fees will increase for a minimum of 3 months until you can prove you can attend the gym more than twice within the respective period but I've never been to a gym in my life and am loving every second of it and attend 2-4 times per week.

I would also recommend joining a single gym instead of a multigym membership (means you can only visit that respective branch), which works out cheaper or free and would advise visiting your gym (Cannons and L.A Fitness provides a free 1 day no obligation trial and Virgin charges £15 but will be refunded if you join)

I hope that helps and if anyone requires any further help or advice, please feel free to PM me.

My gym charges about £65 a month but we worked it out and on average, I'll be paying £22 a month on top of all the other benefits from being with Pru through Boots including free eye exams and 1000 points.

The only thing is, you won't receive the free gift (e.g mp3 player, mountain bike, mag subscriotion etc) for referring other members to Cannons gym via pruhealth.

Regardless of what that states, you'll require to pay the £25 activation fee for any gym that you join but it's still great because gyms charge a lot more than £25 for an activation fee and under the previous offer, you require to pay £25 for each of the first 3 months until you prove you're attending at least twice a week on average per calender quarter.

Under the old rules, you could of attended the gym twice a week for the first 3 months and then attended as you wish without any penalties but when I signed up a couple months ago, they now changed it to a review every 3 months but at the end of the day, if you don't plan on going to the gym, it's pointless anyway, so just make sure that if you're signing up to this scheme, you fully intend on maximising the facilities.

My session will normally include a hard workout on the cardo and resistance machines and then I relax by going for a swim, chill in the steam room and then fully relax in the jacuzzi, which you could also use if you can't be bothered to do a gym workout but want to keep up the twice a week average.

You can cancel your pruhealth at any time but your gym membership will also be cancelled, so there is an escape clause if you require one but remaining at the gym long term works out cheaper on average as the months go by.

Hope that helps. :)

I understand what your saying but i joined when it was the first 6 months for free at the gym, no activation required so you pay the amount for pru , in my case 15.39. then i said i would cancel as i cant afford it and just use it for the gym, then they put me over to the new plan where you need to go 2 or more times a week, no additional costs or anything, maybe i got it lucky, but im just showin that 2 or more time visits can get you no additional costs to your memebership
