TORONTO -- American Express Canada and GoodLife Fitness are pleased to announce that Cardmembers can now use their American Express Cards to pay for select membership options and services at GoodLife Fitness, Canada's largest operator of fitness clubs. On February 15, 2016, the payment option became available at all GoodLife Fitness club locations across Canada.
"We're thrilled to offer our Cardmembers more flexibility when heading to the gym," says Kerri-Ann Santaguida, Vice President & General Manager, Merchant Services, American Express Canada. "We want our Cardmembers to be able to use their Cards in more places every day. We're proud to say that now they can."
As a proud Canadian employer for over 160 years, American Express Canada is pleased to work with such a strong Canadian brand.
