“24 Hour Fitness, the largest privately-owned U.S. fitness chain and the Official Fitness Center Sponsor of the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team, today announced that 21 team members from its more than 425 locations across the United States will serve as ‘Fitness Ambassadors’ and staff the United States Olympic Committee’s (USOC) High Performance Training Center (HPTC) in Beijing for the 2008 Olympic Games. Fitness managers and master trainers from the 24 Hour Fitness network participated in a rigorous selection process in which they were asked to submit an application that detailed how they changed people’s lives by helping them achieve their fitness goals, along with inspiring member testimonials. Once the staff was announced, the group attended an intensive three-day training at the USOC headquarters in Colorado Springs, CO to prepare them for their two week assignment at the HPTC in Beijing where they will support both the athletes and USOC. ‘24 Hour Fitness is proud to continue its support of the U.S. Olympic Team by providing this unique opportunity to its own team members,’ said Carl Liebert, Chief Executive Officer, 24 Hour Fitness.”
