NEW YORK, Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Town Sports International (TSI) (Nasdaq: CLUB), operators of New York, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia Sports Clubs, is honoring the men and women who put their lives on the line every day to save the lives of others by deeming August, "First Responder Appreciation Month." Throughout August TSI is offering complimentary one month memberships to all police, fire, EMS and military personnel so that they may work out for free at the company's 150+ locations throughout the Northeast. To any first responders that are already members, they may bring in a guest for free during the entire month.
TSI has a long shared history with first responders, dating back to 2003 when NYSC partnered with the FDNY to provide memberships for over 10,000 candidates so they had access to train for the FDNY physical exam – the department's first exam following the events of September 11, 2001.
The offer also complements the recently launched Bravest & Finest workout, a workout inspired by the physical challenges required to become a first responder. The class is taught by an NYSC trainer and a member of the NYPD or FDNY.
"We recognize the tremendous physical and mental commitment that it takes to be a first responder," said Michelle Ryan, CMO of TSI. "We are truly grateful to all the men and women who respond without hesitation to protect and serve our neighborhoods and appreciate their daily commitment to keeping us safe."
The first responders' complimentary membership offer begins August 1st in all New York Sports Clubs, Boston Sports Clubs, Washington Sports Clubs, and Philadelphia Sports Clubs through August 31st. For more information on membership details and club locations, please visit www.mysportsclubs.com.
