The Pennsylvania Health Club Act, which governs most types of health clubs located in Pennsylvania, was amended effective September 3, 2012, to permit health clubs to have non-staffed hours of operation so long as specific conditions are met. As many health club franchised companies are transitioning to 24-hour operation, the amendments to the act are very helpful.


In 1989, the act was passed to regulate health club contracts and the terms of membership. The act previously required every health club to employ, and have on the club’s premises during all hours of operation, a person who is trained and certified to administer CPR. If the health club was open for more than eight hours a day, five days a week, the club was required to employ at least two people who are trained and certified to administer CPR.
