24 Hour Fitness:


24 Hour Fitness and POWERADE invite members and guests to a free boot camp class hosted by Team USA decathlete Ashton Eaton. Eaton, who won gold in the 2012 London Olympic Games, gave the U.S. its first gold medal in the decathlon since 1956.
Following the class, members of the Falls Church community will have an opportunity to take photographs with Eaton and receive autographs at an exclusive meet and greet session. Samples of POWERADE® and POWERADE ZERO will be available during the event as Eaton is a member of the POWERADE ION4® Squad.
This special event is being held in continued celebration of the recent grand opening of the new 24 Hour Fitness® Falls Church Super-Sport club, which opened on Sept. 21.
24 Hour Fitness is a proud sponsor of the United States Olympic Committee and serves as the Official Fitness Center Sponsor of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams, making the company one of the largest supporters of amateur athletics in the country.
