MONTGOMERY, Ala. - August 15, 2017 // PRNewswire // - Anytime Fitness, the fastest-growing gym in the world, recently announced plans to introduce over 65 locations in targeted areas throughout the state of Alabama. The community-focused brand will ramp up growth through strategic franchise partnerships and aims to open the new locations within the next three years.
There are currently 31 successful Anytime Fitness locations open throughout the state. Kicking off this newest development push, Birmingham and Auburn area locations are slated to open within the next 12 months, with another four in various stages of development. With a positive business climate, an open real estate market and multiple successful existing franchisees, Alabama is an obvious and attractive area for continued growth. Targeted markets throughout the state include Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile and Montgomery, among several others.
"The state of Alabama is extremely hospitable - anywhere you go has that homey, small-town feel," said Tom Gilles, Vice President of Franchise Development. "With proof of concept in the region and community-focused neighborhoods that resonate perfectly with the supportive atmosphere of our gyms, we're poised for explosive growth in the state."
Anytime Fitness has been the fastest-growing fitness club franchise in the world for 10 consecutive years.

Through support and guidance from trainers and staff and encouragement from a community of members, Anytime Fitness aims to motivate individuals on their journey to Get to a Healthier Place®, no matter where they live or what their physical fitness level is.
"We're not looking to simply grow a franchise brand - we're looking to grow and help individuals reach their specific goals and achieve a healthy, happy lifestyle," said Chuck Runyon, co-founder and CEO of Anytime Fitness. "We're searching for local entrepreneurs who share our passion for building relationships and helping others so that we can achieve that vision in communities across the state."
