Oh yeah. Went up to 20 last summer. And I am only talking about classes. My gym membership is 65. But I also do the occasional Bikram yoga, kickboxing, or spin class. Honestly I have never personally had a problem or known anyone else to have a problem with expensing fitness while traveling. I have seen plenty of people get nastygrams for charging non approved expenses to the fitness subsidy. Mostly people buying running shoes.

Ah I see. As someone who did a two week trial at Gold's in LA... Equinox or a more pricey alternative is well worth the money. The location I went to by EY was full of 50 year old creeps that would stare at you like a piece of meat. Would always be out of towels, smelled bad, locker rooms seemed unclean, etc. Group classes also weren't up to par and the machines were always taken. Anyways, I obviously didn't sign the contract. Got a membership at CorePower Yoga - they have 200 locations across the country that you can use with no extra charge so it's perfect for a consultant. If you sign up when a new one is opening, your membership will be super discounted (I think mine is $115/month). I recommend their heated sculpt class - it will change your life!

Deloitte has $500 as well and on top of that you can expense gym fee when you travel. Deloitte is the best 😎

PwC2. Review our Finance Policies. It's up to your engagement partner if he wants to pass on the expenses to the client, use his PD code, or eat it out of profits. Be sure to cite the policy, however, many Partners are unaware of the policy.

I had one partner refuse to pay for it, regardless of the policy. Pick your battles. Don't piss anyone off over it. But generally citing the policy and saying the hotel gym isn't enough, is sufficient.

Correction. Deloitte does 50% of APPROVED fitness expenses up to $500. And they do $15/day while traveling. You charge your membership/classes to the project while traveling. Depending on your PC they are cool with more than $15/day if it averages out to that in a week.

75% QoL reimbursement of anything fitness-related (including Apple Watch, gaming console etc) up to $500. Plus, $15 per day while traveling on project. Corporate discount for gyms are regional; we have over 50% off for Golds in LA

EY had a QoL quarterly , up to 500$/yr. gym memberships, anything health related , gym equipment , etc.
