SAN RAMON, CALIF. - Oct. 13, 2011

24 Hour Fitness, the largest privately owned U.S. fitness club chain and a leading health club industry pioneer, has been recognized as one of the “Top 20 Military Spouse Friendly Employers” of 2012 by Military Spouse magazine after a recent survey of more than 5,000 companies. The publication’s fifth annual list showcases organizations that are most successful in hiring and recruiting the spouses of active U.S. servicemen and servicewomen.

“None of what we accomplish at 24 Hour Fitness would be possible without our diverse staff of 21,000 team members, and we’re honored to be recognized for the career opportunities we provide,” said Carl Liebert, chief executive officer, 24 Hour Fitness. “Military husbands and wives, including those we employ, are strong and courageous individuals. 24 Hour Fitness will always support and be thankful to our troops and their families.”

Military Spouse magazine’s annual survey distinguishes 24 Hour Fitness as a “Top 20 Military Spouse Friendly Employer” based on the fitness leader’s hiring efforts within military communities and commitment to the expansive community of military husbands and wives.

“In the past, corporations have been hesitant to hire military spouses, due to the transient lifestyle many live,” said Babette Maxwell, co-founder and executive editor of Military Spouse. “We commend 24 Hour Fitness for recognizing that the key to success is simply choosing the best employees, and for supporting the families of those who serve our country.”
