Lance Armstrong's name removed from 24 Hour Fitness location in Denver's Lowry neighborhood

Cyclist stripped of 7 Tour de France titles

DENVER - A 7NEWS MyReporter said Lance Armstrong's image is being removed from a Denver area gym.

The 24 Hour Fitness at Lowry in Denver was named after the cyclist when it opened in 2005.

Ironically, one sign inside the gym said, "It's my body. I can do whatever I want with it. I can push it. Study it. Tweak it. Listen to it. Everybody wants to know what I'm on. What am I on? I'm on my bike busting my ass six hours a day. What are you on?"

MyReporter Glen Bailis said the signs are now being removed.

A manager at the location was unable to comment and a call to 24 Hour Fitness' national media hotline has not yet been returned.

Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned for life by cycling's governing body  following a report from the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency that accused Armstrong of leading a massive doping program with his cycling teams.

The USADA report said Armstrong and his teams used steroids, the blood booster EPO and blood transfusions. The report included statements from 11 former teammates who testified against Armstrong, including testimony that he pressured them to take banned drugs.

Armstrong denies doping, saying he passed hundreds of drug tests.
