Fit@Merck and Prevention Courses

All those interested in sports are in the right place here. Because if you like to do something for your health, pay attention to your fitness and like to go to the gym, here you will find information on how you can get a subsidy.

We have a joint program with Merck KGaA called Fit@Merck. All Merck employees can receive a subsidy of 195 € per time year. This requires membership in a fitness studio that participates in Fit@Merck as well as regular training. What do we mean by regular? 30 training units in one year.

Would you like to attend a prevention course outside your studio membership? Then you can attend a prevention course. The basic prerequisite is that the course instructor is registered at the central testing laboratory for prevention and that you take part in it regularly.

In addition, we maintain many discount promotions with gyms in the area.
