Walmart is giving its employees access to gym memberships for as low as $9 per paycheck.

In partnership with Trivity Health, the new benefit would give employees access to Trivity’s Prime Fitness program. Under the program, employees can get memberships at more than 9,000 participating fitness centers nationwide.

Planet Fitness, Sculpt 365 and other gyms in Bakersfield are available to local Walmart employees under the program. 

The program is available to full- and part-time employees, as well as temporary associates. No contracts or enrollment fees are required. 

While many states allow these types of programs to be taken directly out of employees paychecks, that is not the case in California. To enroll in the program and set up monthly payment, call 833-236-0181.
