Making News

On October 6 and 7, during San Francisco Fleet Week, 24 Hour Fitness and TRX teamed up to offer fitness challenges and classes to honor U.S. military personnel. Workouts were open to the military and the San Francisco Police Department. Nearly 250 personnel participated, making it the largest TRX workout to date.

During the challenge, TRX CEO Randy Hetrick and 24 Hour Fitness CEO Carl Liebert—both former Navy officers—competed to raise money for the nonprofit Semper Fi Fund. Both companies vowed to donate $50 to the nonprofit for each correctly performed atomic push-up and low row using the TRX Suspension Trainer™. The CEOs performed a combined 132 repetitions of the exercises for a total donation of $6,600.

The Semper Fi Fund provides immediate financial support for injured and critically ill members of the U.S. military and their families. To learn more about the organization, visit
