24 Hour Fitness Continues Thanksgiving Tradition and Welcomes Guests for Complimentary Workouts
SAN RAMON, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
It's that time of year, when Americans gather to give thanks in a
celebration among family and friends, accompanied by endless delicacies.
In celebration of Thanksgiving, 24 Hour Fitness is continuing its annual
holiday tradition by inviting guests to stop by for complimentary
workouts beginning Sunday, Nov. 18 through Saturday, Nov. 24. For six
consecutive years, more than 400 24 Hour Fitness® clubs
across the country have welcomed members and guests.
"Now through the New Year, many of us will simply want to enjoy our time
with loved ones and indulge in holiday treats. 24 Hour Fitness knows
that providing fitness support during this time of year is more
important than ever," said Bill Quinn, executive vice president and
chief marketing officer, 24 Hour Fitness. "To help everyone stay on
track with their fitness goals, we are pleased to open our doors and
continue our tradition of inviting members, their family, friends and
guests to stop by during Thanksgiving week."
To take advantage of the complimentary workouts, guests can simply stop
by a 24 Hour Fitness club or download a free
pass at 24hourfitnes.com.
In addition, 24 Hour Fitness shares simple tips to help holiday
celebrants stay committed to being healthy and active during the holiday
Make working out with friends and family part of your Thanksgiving
tradition. Find creative ways to get your spouse, kids, extended
family and friends to be active together. Try participating in a
family football game, joining a local 5k "Turkey Trot" or decorating
for the holidays immediately after you clean up Thanksgiving dinner.
Set an activity goal and watch your progress using a fitness tracking
device. With a pedometer, you can challenge yourself to walk 10,000
steps while shopping for holiday bargains on Black Friday (News - Alert) and cleaning
out the house for Thanksgiving guests. Simple chores and errands can
keep you moving and torch calories.
Maximize your time off from work by inviting friends to meet up with
you at your local gym for a quick post-Thanksgiving workout. Try TRX®
Suspension Training or calorie-blasting group exercise classes offered
at 24 Hour Fitness.
Walk it off. A brisk stroll is a tried and true method for getting
some fresh air and incorporating movement into your week. Listen to
music or bring along some company and wish your neighbors a happy
holiday. Remember that any activity is better than nothing.
