24 Hour Fitness and Lifeline Roll Out New HIGHX Program

Gabrielle Reece to Present Explosive Functional Training Program-A Solution For Busy Schedules


SAN RAMON, Calif. - May 11, 2015

24 Hour Fitness, in partnership with world class athlete Gabrielle Reece and Lifeline, launches HIGHX Training in all clubs this Spring, introducing a time and energy efficient exercise training and conditioning program for members with perpetually busy schedules.

The 50-minute high intensity class is designed to maximize the body’s ability to burn fat, build lean muscle, optimize the body’s hormonal and physiological response to exercise, all while improving overall daily and athletic performance.  Designed for all fitness and skill levels, the HIGHX class works in small groups, rotating through the progressive functional training circuits.  HIGHX circuits are powered by cutting edge, high quality Lifeline products.  The instructor provides coaching and encouragement as the small groups naturally build member support and community.

HIGHX training was born from humble beginnings.  “I started training the local community of Kauai, Hawaii a few years ago in a converted warehouse,” said Gabrielle Reece, the program’s creator and presenter.  “It fulfilled a need to get friends working out while fitting functional training into their busy schedules.  It just exploded from there.  I’m thrilled to introduce the format to 24 Hour Fitness and I’m certain members will adore it like I do.”

“Gabby shares our belief that the group exercise experience builds strong bodies and a strong community,” stated Lashaun Dale, Vice President, Group X, Creative,  24 Hour Fitness. “A beginner to this format can burn, build and get body benefits while working alongside the competitive athlete.  The group gets stronger collectively and the community support grows with it, which is the heart and soul of group exercise.  We’re excited about our partnership with Gabby and HIGHX.  It’s a dynamic opportunity to partner with one of the world’s most influential athletes to bring this program to our members.”
