U.S. Olympic Team Partnership
24 Hour Fitness, a longtime fan of the Olympic Movement, became a U.S. Olympic Team partner in 2003 and has committed to a partnership through the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. As the Official Fitness Center of Team USA, 24 Hour Fitness is also helping U.S. athletes train for the 2014 Sochi Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games by providing state-of-the-art equipment and expertise at U.S. Olympic Training Centers in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Chula Vista, California and Lake Placid, New York.
For the 2012 London Olympic Games, 24 Hour Fitness assisted the USOC with the creation of a U.S. Team High Performance Training Center (HPTC) which was staffed by 24 Hour Fitness team members, also known as “Fitness Ambassadors,” from over 420 – 24 Hour Fitness clubs across the United States. The cardio, strength and conditioning facility was approximately 6,000 square feet and was designed specifically for the USOC and Team USA’s delegation of more than 550 athletes to train and prepare for competition while in London.
Since 2003, 24 Hour Fitness has supported over 25 U.S. Olympic Team Hopefuls on their journey to represent Team USA; including hopefuls who have worked in our clubs.
