USOC Keeps In Shape, Extends Alliance With 24 Hour Fitness Through 2020

Special to NYSportsJournalism.com

March 7, 2017: The U.S. Olympic Committee, citing a desire to "provide more programs and training resources for future Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls," has extended and expanded its alliance with 24 Hour Fitness.

24 Hour Fitness has been an official partner with Team USA since 2004.

Financial terms, which now continues the partnership through the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Summer Games in Tokyo, were not released.

"The Olympic and Paralympic movements are about inspirational, life-changing moments that rise from years of arduous training," Mark Smith,  CEO for 24 Hour Fitness, said in a statement. "It’s a powerful message about goal setting, overcoming challenges and the mindset to achieve the impossible.

"We look forward to contributing our deep talent and resources to help the USOC and our country’s greatest athletes to achieve their Olympic and Paralympic dreams," said Smith.

The alliance includes the USOC Certification Program developed exclusively for 24 Hour Fitness personal trainers.

The USOC said it would create "general- and sport-specific courses for the fitness professionals of 24 Hour Fitness."

The certification program will come with an exclusive USOC Certified trademark "providing an additional layer of fitness expertise for members as well as future Team USA hopefuls who are members of 24 Hour Fitness clubs throughout the U.S."

The certification will also play a key role in 24 Hour Fitness’ development of youth sports programs.

In addition, 24 Hour Fitness said it would continue to consult with the USOC about the design of Team USA’s High Performance Training Centers, constructed in the Games’ host cities; and would also provide on-the-ground staffing and expertise.

24 Hour Fitness helped design and outfit the High Performance Training Centers at the Rio Games in 2016, London in 2012 and Beijing in 2008, per the USOC.

According to Peter Zeytoonjian, svp-marketing, commerce and events for the USOC, "We look forward to combining the expansive fitness knowledge and nationwide network of 24 Hour Fitness clubs with the sports performance expertise of the USOC in effort to provide more programs and training resources for future Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls."

USOC said that more than 100,000 athletes have passed through the U.S. Olympic Training Centers and utilized equipment provided by 24 Hour Fitness.

Global Olympic marketing partners include Atos, Bridgestone, Coca-Cola, Dow, GE, McDonald’s, Omega, Panasonic, Procter & Gamble, Samsung, Toyota and Visa.

In addition to 24 Hour Fitness, USOC partners include Chobani, Deloitte, DeVry University, Dick’s Sporting Goods, The Hartford, Hershey, Kellogg’s, Liberty Mutual, Milk Life, Nike, Oakley, Ralph Lauren, Smucker’s and United.
