NATIONWIDE — Independent clubs that use hydraulic equipment have a new way to compete with national 30-minute workout chains that allow members to frequent locations around the country. The Hydraulic-Only Passport Program, or HOPP, allows independently owned hydraulic clubs for men and women to offer a free reciprocal travel program to their members.

All traveling members have to do is locate a participating HOPP club in the area they are traveling to by searching on www.30minuteclubs.com. Then when members are on the road and ready to workout, they show their current club's identification card to the participating club and enter. Members can use a HOPP club within the US and Canada for free for up to a week.

The program also serves as a referral system when club members move away from their home clubs. For more information email HOPP at: webmaster@30minuteclubs.com.
