Why the fitness market?
You have a wide range of choices in franchise opportunities. So, why is fitness the right market for you?
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 Jeff Klinger and Chuck Runyon.

A Unique Business Model
Have more time for what's important to you!
The perfect blending of many factors makes Anytime Fitness unique. We offer a business and product that people need and enjoy, in an industry that continues to grow every year. 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:
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! This gives you an enormous competitive advantage, as payroll is the majority expense incurred by traditional fitness clubs. As an Anytime Fitness club owner, you can devote time to the other important areas of your life, while still allowing members full access to your facility.

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.
The Market Leader
Since our founding in 2002, Anytime Fitness has maintained robust growth rates. As the world's largest, and fastest growing, 24-hour, co-ed fitness franchise, we continue to break records and receive industry accolades.
How does a six-year old company catapult to the front of its class? For Anytime Fitness, it's about the basics. We offer a proven business model to passionate entrepreneurs. Then, we offer unwavering franchisee support during all phases of club development and ongoing operations. Plus, we continually evaluate the tools and information we provide our franchisees. When a new idea or better option comes along, we implement those tools on a franchise-wide basis.
The market for Anytime Fitness continues to expand, for both prospective franchisees and potential club members. Currently, we have more than 1,700 territories sold and a membership base of 400,000 and growing! With more than 53% of existing franchisees owning more than one club, the growth of the franchise will be enhanced by those who genuinely know the Anytime Fitness business model and its brand. In addition, we are actively selling franchise locations in Canada, and expansion in Australia is forthcoming.
The typical Anytime Fitness franchisee has a passion for fitness and an entrepreneurial spirit. Ranked as one of the top low investment franchise options, club owners tend to experience a return on their investment at a faster pace than other businesses. Typical club size is 4,000 square feet, making them particularly suited to strip centers.
