“Our ‘Do More with Your 24’ float celebrates 24 Hour Fitness’ dedication to helping members succeed each day – from small to large goals met inside our clubs and to the life they lead outside the club,” said Lashaun Dale, Vice President, Content & Programming, 24 Hour Fitness.

24 Hour Fitness’ “Do More with Your 24” float featured a dynamic design, depicting seven giant human figures in various stages of exercises and athletics, towering a total of 26-feet high. Everything from basketball, cycling, yoga, martial arts, swimming, TRX®, strength training and more were reflected within the design to represent a variety of programs offered inside clubs, as well as the support that extends well beyond the club’s walls.

The giant figures were constructed with a blend of seeds, spices, ground vegetables and fresh cut flowers including over 13,000 orchids, roses, carnations, leaves, and flower blooms. Each individual figure holds hundreds of thousands of chopped blooms, nuts, spices and vegetables.

The outwalkers that surrounded the float included 20 of the best, most enthusiastic GX (Group Exercise) instructors from 24 Hour Fitness clubs throughout the U.S. as they form a spectacular, choreographed production number, “dancing their goals off” in a Dance Floor War for the ages. An internationally-recognized New Year’s celebration more than a century old, the annual Rose Parade requires some 80,000 hours of manpower each year, supplied by 935 members of the non-profit Tournament of Roses Association. 2017 marks the 128th anniversary of the Rose Parade as part of the Tournament of Roses.

24 Hour Fitness is bringing the parade’s theme, “Echoes of Success,” to life by honoring the successes of its members and team members across the country. The finalists, among the 24 Hour Fitness members submitting their transformations stories of success, were featured in a series of videos with their “fitness mentor” and expert who worked and trained alongside each member during their fitness journey. The member videos of their fitness journeys were part of a digital competition for a chance to ride on the float during the parade. 24 Hour Fitness member Loryn Spady of Lynnwood, WA, whose uplifting success story received thousands of votes online, was selected to ride atop the float with her 24 Hour Fitness Lynnwood personal trainer, Evan Fabrizio.

“Our ‘Do More with Your 24’ float celebrates 24 Hour Fitness’ dedication to helping members succeed each day – from small to large goals met inside our clubs and to the life they lead outside the club,” said Lashaun Dale, Vice President, Content & Programming, 24 Hour Fitness.

“For some, just making it to the gym is a major triumph, and we’re proud to help members make the commitment. For others – like Olympic Gold Medalist Conor Dwyer and Loryn Spady– 24 Hour Fitness has helped to make their life dreams possible.” Dale added, “We hope our ‘Do More with Your 24’ float will inspire the parade’s millions of viewers to do just that – more.”
