EAST LANSING, MI — The all new Conquest Health & Fitness Center announces their star-studded Grand Opening event for Friday, Sept. 7, 2012, from 4PM to 7:30PM. Formerly, Eagle Eye Athletic Club, the new owner and Michigan State University basketball player standout Andre Hutson has renovated the facility and brought fitness to a whole new level. The event will include a star-studded “Meet and Greet” with MSU athletes and local celebrities.

“We will have great people attending our Grand Opening! Basketball Coaching legend Tom Izzo, Mateen Cleaves, Charlie Bell, Jason Richardson, Dave Thomas, TJ Duckett, and more Spartan greats will be a part of our Grand Opening Celebration,” Hutson said.

Join in the celebration and competition. Try to beat the Spartans at a game of hoops, putt against the golf pros, enter a Free 5K Run sponsored by Playmakers at 6:15 PM with refreshments aplenty.

“I couldn’t be happier for Andre and his family. It’s another Spartan homecoming and great to have him back in East Lansing,” Tom Izzo said.

The Grand Opening event not only serves as a celebration for Conquest Health & Fitness, it’s also a benefit for Ele’s Place. Five percent of each new membership between the dates of Sept. 7, 2012 and Sept. 6, 2013, will be donated to Ele’s Place, a Healing Center for Grieving Children. Additionally, donations for participation in the 5K Run are accepted and will benefit Ele’s Place.

The public can tour the facility and receive a One Week Free Pass to try before you buy. Nationally recognized health and fitness guru, Chris Johnson, of On Target Living, will be speaking on Michigan Health & Wellness and partnership with Conquest Health & Fitness. Conquest Health & Fitness offers numerous membership options which include fitness classes, personal training from On Target Living and massage from Back n’ Balance.

"Owning a Health and Fitness Center has been a dream of mine for awhile now. Being able to do it in a place like East Lansing, which has been so good to me and my family, makes it even more special," Hutson said.
