“I applaud 24 Hour Fitness for continuing to reinvest in Sacramento and its local club members. For more than 17
years, they’ve been a champion for healthy living in our community and provided our city with incredible access to
fitness,” said Johnson. “With the new club expansion, downtown Sacramento members will now have more
opportunities to lead healthier lives, and revitalize their motivations to stay physically active.”
