Membership

Key Tag
New or Renewing Members: Complete the Demographic (KSC Form 50-85) and Physical Activity Readiness (PAR-Q, KSC Form 50-42) membership forms found on the NASA Forms website, https://nef.nasa.gov, or at the KSC Fitness Center. On the NASA Forms website, search by the form number, such as "50-85" or "50-42". In the search results, click on the form number link on the left-hand side of the screen. Please do not click on the "order copies" button.

Bring completed forms to the KSC FC, and have staff take your blood pressure. Based on your answers to the PAR-Q form and your blood pressure reading, the staff will determine if it is necessary for you to receive a medical clearance from a physician. If it is determined that you need a medical clearance, KSC employees may be able to receive the clearance from the Occupational Health Facility at KSC. If not, you will need to provide it from your personal health care provider. Non-KSC employees will need a clearance from their personal health care provider unless pre-approved to utilize services provided by KEMCON. Once this process is completed, the Fitness Center staff will issue you a fitness center membership key-tag. You must check-in with your key-tag in order to use the KSC Fitness Center.
