In the Beginning| What do people really want from a health club? That's the key question Anytime Fitness co-founders Jeff Klinger and Chuck Runyon asked themselves six years ago. The answer was relatively simple. When you boil it all down, people want a convenient and affordable place to go-with quality exercise equipment and a friendly atmosphere.
Thus was born the Anytime Fitness franchise-an alternative to over-sized and over-priced health clubs, providing a viable business model for independent franchisees and affordable fitness options for hundreds of thousands of members nationwide. The first Anytime Fitness club opened its doors in Cambridge, MN in 2002.
The World's Largest 24-Hour, Co-ed Fitness Franchise | Anytime Fitness is not only the largest, but also the fastest-growing, fitness club franchise in the world. Nearly doubling in size from 308 to 593 clubs in 2007, and currently opening clubs at a rate of more than one a day, Anytime Fitness expects to celebrate the opening of its 1,000th club shortly before the end of 2008.
The Best Place for Fitness: 24/7 | At Anytime Fitness, we understand how important convenience is to our members. People want to exercise on their own terms, whenever their busy schedules allow, close to their homes or work places, and when they travel. That's why Anytime Fitness clubs are open 24/7, allowing members to work out any time of the day or night, even when our clubs are not staffed. It's also the rationale behind our membership reciprocity program, which is known as Anywhere Club Access. With this benefit, members join one Anytime Fitness club and can use any other club, in 45 different states and Canada, at no extra charge. What could be more convenient than that?
Other features which separate Anytime Fitness from the rest of the pack include 24-hour tanning facilities (at most locations) and our integrated use of access software, security, and surveillance systems, which allow owners to operate safe and secure clubs with greatly reduced staffing needs.
Neighborhood-Style Clubs| Anytime Fitness prides itself on its commitment to community involvement. We're also one of the few fitness franchises to succeed in smaller population centers traditionally ignored by larger clubs. In fact, most members live or work within a 3-mile radius of our clubs. That convenience is fueling the growth of Anytime Fitness!
