National Independent Health Club Association

Fitness Centers have an opportunity to do business with some of the largest insurance providers and employer groups in the industry!

The National Independent Health Club Association works with insurance providers, employer groups and incentive programs that offer a fitness and wellness benefit.  We are the clearinghouse that allows individual fitness centers the opportunity to take advantage of these great fitness incentive programs.

Workout at a NIHCA participating fitness facility and recieve an incentive back!


For insurance providers and employer groups, NIHCA will help manage your fitness incentive programs at the facility level, maintaining the goals and perimeters of each individual program. Participating fitness centers will gain access to an entirely new market – our incentive programs help facilities attract new members and retain their current ones – all without having to offer discounts that hurt your bottom line!  Besides being able to offer these great incentive and reimbursement programs, NIHCA members can take advantage of other value-added benefits, such as free webinars and a preferred vendor list.

The National Independent Health Club Association, a non-profit organization, has been created to represent independent fitness centers across the nation, work with insurance providers and employer groups on existing or new health management programs. 


Going GReenIn an effort to be more paperless and capitalize on some efficiencies, NIHCA is going to jump on the Going Green bandwagon.  Effective January 1, 2015, NIHCA will begin “going green” by emailing all Invoices and Statements for your facility’s annual NIHCA dues. Please email to let us know who would be the appropriate person to receive this email and the best email for that individual.

Jacobsladder LOGO

Jacobs Ladder LLC, located in North Tonawanda, NY, manufactures Jacobs Ladder, Jacobs Ladder 2, and the Stairway.

  • Jacobs Ladder is a patented piece of commercial cardio equipment designed specifically for training athletes, professionals and fitness enthusiasts.  Its unique design places the user at a 40 degree angle taking stress off of the lower back by placing the spine in a more neutral position. It is self-paced ensuring that the user is neither under-worked nor over-worked. The rungs are 12″ apart forcing the user to use a larger range of motion. Jacobs Ladder is self-powered so there is no need for an electrical outlet.
  • Jacobs Ladder II offers the same great workout as the regular Jacobs Ladder but has a smaller footprint and needs to be plugged in for the digital display to operate.
  • The Stairway is a stair climber using the same speed technology as Jacobs Ladder.  The higher up you go, the faster the stairs come, so the user controls their own speed.  The Stairway is also self-powered.

All of Jacobs Ladder products are made in the USA.
