24 Hour Fitness began as a one-club operation in 1983. By the mid 1990’s 24 Hour Fitness had grown to more than 32 health fitness centers in Northern California, becoming the world’s largest privately owned and operated fitness center chain,.

24 Hour Nautilus partnered with investment banking firm McCown DeLeeuw & Co in 1994. Soon thereafter the Southern California-based Family Fitness Centers chain was acquired and the name 24 Hour Fitness was born. The company has since grown to more than 300 clubs in 16 states and become the largest privately owned and operated health fitness center chain in the United States and world.
