Background Discussion

The Fitness Passport Program is a fitness program similar to the Silver Sneakers program that the Board approved for the G.T. Bray Recreation Center to offer in 2013.  It is an opportunity for residents in the community to utilize the programs and services at G.T. Bray at no cost to them through their medical insurance provider.

Membership with this organization will enable the Parks and Natural Resources Department to generate revenue through membership fees.  Offering the Optum Fitness Passport Program is an incentive to bring new members to the G.T. Bray Recreation Center and Optum pays the facility up to a maximum of $32 per month per member.

Two agreements are attached.  The Fitness Passport Service Agreement is for the G.T. Bray Recreation Center to become part of the Optum Fitness Passport Network.  The Healthy Contributions Provider Agreement provides the payment-processing services for Manatee County's facility, data transfer, and disbursement services for the Optum Fitness Passport Program.
