Anytime Fitness 04

Consider the fact that nearly a million people join fitness clubs each year, pushing membership to 41.3 million people nationwide*. This number is likely to grow as more people commit to an active lifestyle, often spurred by the increasing number of corporate wellness programs and health insurance incentives.

Where will the vast majority of this growth continue to happen: in the 24-hour, co-ed model invented and pioneered by Anytime Fitness founders Dave Mortensen and Chuck Runyon.

The convenience of our product, for both franchise owners and members, is just one of the many features allowing our concept to thrive.

With Anytime Fitness, you're in business for yourself, not by yourself. As a franchisee, you will use exclusive technology to operate your club, including:Anytime Fitness 05

  • Access and security systems, integrated with billing and payment processing.
  • Member check-in and data management tools, integrated with marketing features.
  • Tanning access systems, integrated with Point of Sale functionality.
  • Vending solutions, cashless design allows members to charge purchases to their member account, creating revenue without staff!
  • Nationwide membership reciprocity program, known as Anywhere Club Access.

With Anytime Fitness, you can own a fitness club and still have a flexible schedule. Our exclusive systems integration allows you to run a 24-hour operation without additional staff!

Anytime Fitness offers the convenience people are seeking in a fitness club. Ninety percent of our members live within 1-3 miles of their club. Plus, our Anywhere Club Access clearly adds to the convenience we offer our members, which is the top reason consumers choose one club over another.

Anytime Fitness offers an affordable fitness option for everyone. In contrast to the low price tag, Anytime Fitness clubs are scrupulously clean and bright, with expertly designed workout areas. Inside each club, members will find cutting-edge equipment that is safe and easy-to-use.

Round-the-clock tanning*, in a safe and secure environment, is another prominent feature of our business model. For a nominal add-on fee, members use their access card to activate a tanning session. Safety features built-into our software protect members from lengthy tanning sessions and multiple sessions per day. *Certain states prohibit 24-hour tanning.
