  • Giving away a trip for two to Honolulu
  • All employees are wearing leis.
  • Front desk receptionist answers phone "Aloha, and thank you for calling 24 Hour Fitness!"
  • Brochures and schedules rewritten using a 13-letter alphabet.
  • The signs on the Mens and Womens locker rooms have been changed to read "Kanes" and "Wahines".
  • All clocks now show Hawaii Standard Time
  • Humuhumunukunukuapua`a adopted as the official fish.
  • Ceremony will recreate the discovery of 24 Hour Fitness by oceangoing Polynesians.
  • Will release wild mongoose into the 24 Hour Fitness environment in an ill-conceived attempt to control the rat population.
