Yoga? Boot Camp? Circuit? Spin? Why choose!? If you’re unsure which class is right for you, the Shine Fitness Class Pass will give you the opportunity to choose any or all of the scheduled group fitness classes. The pass is also perfect for those with a busy or unpredictable schedule since you can attend classes whenever it is most convenient for you. Check out the schedules and start planning your workouts! 

If you would like to participate in the fitness classes offered at the centres, you will be required to either register for the entire session or purchase a Shine Fitness Pass. 

5 Class Pass: Cost: $30.00. This pass gives you the flexibility to choose any 5 classes at any of our Shine Employee Wellness Centre sites (JHCC, HGH, MUMC). Register here

10 Class Pass: Cost: $60.00. This pass gives you the flexibility to choose any 5 classes at any of our Shine Employee Wellness Centre sites (JHCC, HGH, MUMC). Register here

Each time you participate in a class, the instructor will initial your pass (until you have run out of classes on your pass). You may purchase an unlimited amount of passes to suit your level of attendance. Each pass will expire 4 months from the date of purchase. 

You can pay either 1) online with credit card, or 2) by cash, debit, or credit in-person at the Cashier Site at your workplace.

If you choose to pay online, you will be redirected to the secure payment page once you click submit on the registration form. Have your credit card handy and enter SHINE5PASS (for 5 Class Pass) or SHINE10PASS (for 10 Class Pass) as the account number.  The payment page is completely secure...it is the same online payment form used by HHS patients to pay a bill from the main HHS website. 

If paying by other method in person, please print out your confirmation email and bring to the Info Desk (JHCC, MUMC, HGH) or Cashier (SPH, WLMH) to complete your payment. You will still be redirected to the online payment page when you submit your form, so just exit the screen. 

Once payment has been made, please go to Employee Health Services (EHS) at your work site to pick up your pass (request your pass at the front desk). Be sure to bring your receipt from the Info Desk clerk/Cashier or the one you received from paying online.
