On Friday September 7th, hundreds gathered in the former Eagle Eye Athletic Club location for the grand opening of Conquest Health & Fitness Center, owned by former MSU player Andre Hutson.

Among those celebrating the opening with Hutson were Coach Tom Izzo and his wife Lupe Izzo, the current MSU Spartan basketball team, as well as former star players like Mateen Cleaves, Charlie Bell, TJ and Tico Duckett, and Dave Thomas. Sparty the mascot was also on hand to celebrate and take photos with fans at the event.

“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 also kicked off a membership offer that will benefit the local organization Ele's Place, a center for grieving children, for the next year.

Five percent of new memberships purchased between the event date and September 6th, 2013 will go towards Ele's Place.

"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.
