Health And Fitness Club

health and fitness club
Can you write off health/fitness club under “health care” on income taxes?

My husband and I just started working out at a local fitness club/gym. Can we deduct the money and monthly payments we spend there under the health care category or any other category on our income taxes? We are using to club to be in better health and prevent diseases usually associated with over-weight people after-all.

Sure, why not – movie stars take a deduction for tanning salons

But, then again IRS disallowed it

My grandma deducted her fitness club dues but IRS just wrote and
told her to “do your jumping jacks at home”
