With clubs all around the country, the fitness mega chain, 24 Hour Fitness offers state-of-the-art workout facilities and amenities so that fitness can be fun and easy. There are five different club styles to choose from, each designed to meet your fitness goals and needs. For instance, Ultra Sport 24 Hour Fitness includes basketball courts, spa features, a kids club and rock climbing in addition to the traditional gym fare of cardio equipment, weight machines and other group classes; while an Active club contains the usual gym fare without a lot of the extra features.

24 Hour Fitness has also collaborated with sports legends like Andre Agassi and Lance Armstrong to create signature athletic clubs that have their own style and focus. These partnerships were created to advocate fitness and help reach the company’s mission of making fitness a way of life for everyone.

Clubs also feature personal training, childcare and group classes. They also include a variety of membership packages that work with you. For example you can purchase specific memberships that honor your lifestyle if you only work out a few days a week, just on the weekends, or if you travel a lot.

You might also recognize the 24 Hour Fitness brand from NBC's Biggest Loser. The gym the contestants use is branded and outfitted by the fitness chain and the contestants wear the branded sports gear as well.

There are more than 385 24 Hour Fitness clubs in 16 states. It has become the largest privately owned and operated fitness center chain in the United States and world.

DIET and NUTRITION

Even though 24 Hour Fitness's primary focus is exercise, it also considers nutrition to be a cornerstone of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If you work with a personal trainer, your trainer will also give you nutrition advice and format an eating plan that works for you. As part of your personal training program you will receive The 24 Hour Fitness Training Guidebook which included information on how to eat smarter, how to read food labels and the differences between fat and weight loss.

Also, some of the clubs feature juice bars.

EXERCISE

From yoga to rock climbing and free weights to the latest in cardio equipment, 24 Hour Fitness has something to fit everyone's exercise preferences. If you are someone who tires easily of one kind of exercise, the variety will appeal to your need to keep things changing.

In addition, all clubs offer Fitlite, a complete body workout that can be completed in 30 minutes.

Personal training is available to any member who wants a tailored workout program that is focused on individual fitness and health goals.

24 Hour Fitness also features the only Biggest Loser Fitness Program, so you can train just like your favorite contestant. The package includes personal training sessions, online nutrition plan and more.

CONCLUSION

As one of the largest fitness chains in the world, 24 Hour Fitness keeps up with the latest in exercise trends and offers those services to you at competitive prices. Its flexible membership packages allow you to choose a plan that fits with your lifestyle, fitness goals and budget. If you love to exercise, thrive off of the group energy of a fitness gym or hate the boredom that ensues after following the same exercise routine, 24 Hour Fitness might be just the center for you to meet your fitness goals. Its emphasis on exercise as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle and its mission to make exercise accessible to everyone are compelling and laudable. But since they are not ubiquitous yet, make sure that you check to see if there are 24 Hour Fitness locations in your area before getting too excited about joining.

I've been a member for over 2 years and I really like that it's 24 hours. I've got the kind of membership where I can go to any gym so that is super convenient and I have no excuses (i.e., gym is closed) or weather is bad because I have 2 gyms that are close by (within 3 miles of me).

I bought a membership, paid for the year in advance, and I am so glad I did. I've been going for about two months and I lost 10 lbs but gained 4 back from eating mcdonald's... but I'm back on track and hope to stay there.
