AUSTIN -- 24 Hour Fitness has told KVUE News it has decided to end its relationship with Lance Armstrong.
The fitness company sent this statement to KVUE:
"24 Hour Fitness remains committed to helping our members improve their lives through fitness and does not condone the use of performance-enhancing drugs or procedures.
Given the evidence surrounding Lance Armstrong’s alleged actions, we have determined that our business relationship with Armstrong no longer aligns with our company’s mission and values. Over the coming weeks, we plan to remove the Lance Armstrong brand from our six co-branded fitness clubs and further improve these facilities to enable and inspire our members to achieve their fitness goals."
On Wednesday Nike announced that it has terminated its contract with Armstrong. That announcement came the same day Armstrong announced he would step down as the chairman of his cancer foundation, Livestrong.
