Anytime Fitness is among the largest fitness club franchises in the world. With its recent opening of a center in Antarctica, it is the only franchise to have a location on all seven continents. The company currently has over 4,000 gyms throughout the world and continues to prioritize expansion. For this reason, it does not provide specific locations open to franchisees. Instead, the company considers each proposal for a location based on its assessment of outside factors as well as the prospective franchisee's proposal. In addition to its continued growth in terms of location and membership, the franchise also has sustained a high rate of revenue growth.

The brand prides itself on offering convenient ways to work out for a large number of people. At the same time, the company has strict standards for ensuring a comfortable, clean environment and top-of-the-line equipment. All locations offer 24/7 access 365 days a year. Centers offer a wide range of exercise equipment as well as personal training services, a variety of classes and tanning.

Why Choose Us?

Anytime Fitness franchisees benefit from the company's strong track record and proven methods of successfully growing its revenues. Anytime Fitness company leaders have developed a unique approach that combines convenience with quality in its services. This approach continues to work well as new locations open and see success. Franchisees also benefit from strong brand recognition as well as the company's strong relationship with vendors and financial institutions.

Anytime Fitness offers an initial training program, as well as ongoing support. Franchisees have the option of asking a company consultant to come to the location and help with particular issues. Other benefits include participation in various marketing programs designed and run by the company.

Ideal Candidate

Prospective franchisees can face a wide range of financial commitment. The company charges an initial franchise fee of $42,500 for a Center and $21,000 for an Express location. These fees may also vary depending on the type of financing you use. Additionally, the company estimates an initial investment range of $58,870 - $521,437. Factors that affect where your expenses would fall on this very broad spectrum can include your location, the extent of renovations you will need to comply with company standards, whether you will operate a Center or an Express location, and more.

Beyond finances, Anytime Fitness looks for franchisees with enthusiasm for helping people improve their fitness. Generally, the company requires locations to be accessible by customers 24/7, 365 days a year. It also has specific standards for maintaining security on premises, amenities, software use and more.


The founders of Anytime Fitness, Dave Mortensen, Chuck Runyon and Jeff Klinger, each had a strong background in fitness when they decided to found Anytime Fitness in 2002. They had previously been highly successful in running a gym as well as providing consultation to help improve performance for struggling fitness clubs. When they opened Anytime Fitness, they had already made an extensive study of optimal ways a large gym chain could provide top-quality services and sustain its growth. Anytime Fitness opened its first franchised location later the same year in Minnesota.

In 2008, Anytime Fitness opened its first international location in Canada. In the years that followed, the company opened additional centers in Canada, as well as in South America. In 2010 and afterwards, locations opened throughout Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East. Anytime Fitness broke new ground in 2017 when it became the first United States fitness franchise to be allowed to open a location in China.
