Anytime Fitness is a global gym franchise running local gyms, open 24/7 in places where people live and work. Our clubs are smaller than normal health and fitness clubs, without the swimming pool, sauna and juice bar that most members don’t use.
We have over 3,800 gyms across the world in over 30 countries with more than 3.5m members worldwide. One club opens every day somewhere in the world! There are now more than 130 clubs open in the UK.
Anytime Fitness was founded in 2002 in USA by Chuck Runyon and Dave Mortensen. It was ranked as the #1 franchise in the world by US magazine Entrepreneur in their Franchise 500 2015 & 2016 listings and is one of the fastest-growing fitness franchises in the world. With nearly 400 territories sold across the UK, we expect steady growth throughout 2017.

With Anytime Fitness, the training doesn’t stop and continues weekly, monthly and yearly – on-site, remotely and via a regular three-day training course for our franchisees which covers every aspect of running their club including sales processes, payment systems, customer database management, security, customer retention and customer service. This training runs six times a year giving franchisees the opportunity to refresh their knowledge or send their sales manager or other staff too.
Daily Life of a Franchisee
Our franchisees can choose how much time they spend in the day-to-day running of their club once it is open. Many of our franchisees employ a club manager to run their club, but this role would involve sales, managing staff, ensuring the club is safe, clean and equipment is working, maintaining high standards of customer service, greeting new potential members and keeping all members happy.
