24 Hour Fitness Honored as One of the “Top 100 Military-Friendly Employers®” for 2012 by G.I. Jobs Magazine

Leading Fitness Club Chain Once Again Recognized as a Company Active in Recruiting and Employing Military Talent


SAN RAMON, CALIF. - Nov. 14, 2011

24 Hour Fitness, the largest privately owned U.S. fitness club chain and a leading health club industry pioneer, received recognition as one of the “Top 100 Military-Friendly Employers” of 2012 by G.I. Jobs magazine for its commitment to recruiting and hiring U.S. servicemen and servicewomen who enter the workforce in the hundreds of thousands each year. The accolade comes on the heels of the fitness leader being named as one of the “Top 20 Military Spouse Friendly Employers®” of 2012 by Military Spouse magazine this past month.

“U.S. service members are a natural fit for our company, which values integrity, accountability and leadership in its team members,” said Carl Liebert III, CEO of 24 Hour Fitness. “Having selflessly served our country, these individuals are committed to making a difference, and they display incredible passion in helping our members improve their lives through health and fitness.”

G.I. Jobs magazine bases its annual rankings of “Top 100 Military-Friendly Employers” on a survey of approximately 5,000 companies, which assesses long-term commitment to hiring former military members, recruiting and hiring efforts and results, policies for Reserve and Guard members called to active duty and the presence of special recruitment military programs.

“This year, the competition was fierce based on the results of our survey and simply appearing on the list is an honor and testament to a company’s military recruiting efforts,” said Rich McCormack, publisher of G.I. Jobs magazine. “We applaud 24 Hour Fitness for their long-standing commitment to hiring U.S. servicemen and servicewomen.”
