24 Hour Fitness will celebrate the grand opening of its new location in Kirkland on Saturday.

The 24 Hour Fitness Kirkland Totem Lake Sport club will open to the public at 6 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 26. The new facility located at 12526 Totem Lake Boulevard N.E. will replace the original 24 Hour Fitness Kirkland club, which closes its doors at 529 Parkplace Center at 8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25.

To celebrate, 24 Hour Fitness invites the local community to stop by on grand opening day for complimentary VIP club tours. Beginning at 6 a.m. and throughout the day, event attendees will have the opportunity to sample several group exercise classes, including Les Mills CXWORX, Les Mills BODYCOMBAT and Zumba.

Joining 24 Hour Fitness at the community celebration will be Kirkland City Councilwoman Penny Sweet. Sweet will take part in a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. where she will proclaim Jan. 26 as “Healthy Kirkland Day” in honor of the grand opening.

“24 Hour Fitness is excited to open the doors to our newest club and celebrate ‘Healthy Kirkland Day’ with our friends and neighbors,” said Dan Benning, division president, 24 Hour Fitness. “Our team is passionate about helping our members and guests reach their 2013 fitness goals, and we know the new club and all its featured amenities will help them stay motivated to succeed.”

Club manager Michael Schwamberger, a three-year veteran of 24 Hour Fitness, will lead approximately 40 team members at the new club. Spanning approximately 25,300 square feet, it will feature various amenities and equipment that members and guests can enjoy, including a wide variety of new cardio, strength and functional training equipment; a more spacious functional training area; complimentary Wi-Fi, babysitting service for children ages six months up to 12 years and more.

As the fitness leader invests in the local market, it has future plans to open a new 24 Hour Fitness Super-Sport club in Redmond in late 2013. The Redmond club will feature an even wider variety of amenities. Among its features, the club will offer a basketball court, indoor pool, whirlpool, steam room, sauna, personal viewing screens on select cardio machines and complimentary towel service.
