The fitness center chain 24 Hour Fitness is headquartered in San Ramon, California. In June 2020, when the company filed for bankruptcy, it operated over 410 clubs in 13 states of the US. However, as of March 2021, there already were only 280 clubs in 11 states, according to the brand’s corporate website.

Meaning and history

The fitness center chain started in 1983 as a one-club operation called 24 Hour Nautilus. Its founder was Mark Mastrov.

24 Hour Fitness logo

The 24 Hour Fitness logo is dynamic, with smooth and streamlined shapes, which perfectly fits an organization working in sports.
The emblem is a red ellipse housing the lettering “24 hour” in white. There is a blue trim. The ellipse is slightly tilted to the right and looks as if it was a “moving” version of a circle.

Alternative version

Here, the shapes remain the same, while the palette only includes blue and white.
The name of the brand and the emblem are given in white. They are placed inside a solid blue rectangle oriented horizontally. This version better works on darker surfaces.

Font

The all-caps sans serif type looks minimalist due to the softened angles and the disappearance of some of the classic elements of the letters (for instance, the top left “tails” on the “N’s”). The fact that the letters are italicized adds implied motion and makes the letters better fit the tilted ellipse on the emblem.

Colors

The combination of blue and red with white background used on the main 24 Hour Fitness logo is rather popular. Because these colors are part of the National Flag of the US, they are also often used by various American organizations connected with the state or those who want to emphasize they’re patriotic. Yet, this palette of course is also very popular outside the US and is one of the most widely used color schemes in logo design.
