Anytime Fitness Flexes Development Plans for Tennessee
Fastest-Growing Global Gym Looks to Add 30 New Locations by 2024
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Dec. 5, 2018 // PRNewswire // - Anytime Fitness, the world's fastest-growing fitness franchise, recently announced plans to introduce perhaps 30 locations in targeted areas throughout Tennessee, nearly doubling its presence in the state. The community-focused brand will ramp up growth through strategic franchise partnerships and aims to open the new locations within the next five years.
Currently, there are 33 Anytime Fitness gyms open throughout Tennessee. Kicking off this new development push is a second, soon to open, gym in Nashville located at 7609 Hwy 70 South. With a positive business environment, an open real estate market and multiple successful existing franchisees, Tennessee is an obvious and attractive area for growth. Targeted markets throughout the state include Chattanooga, Knoxville, Memphis, and Nashville among others.
Already finding success in the market is multi-unit franchisee Jeff O'Mara who owns three locations throughout Tennessee, contributing to his 12 total Anytime Fitness gyms across the country.
"The Anytime Fitness corporate team works hard to equip us with the tools needed to help our members achieve their fitness goals," said O'Mara. "I also credit much of my success to the strong owners throughout the system who all work to support one another as extended family and enhance each other's business. One of the most rewarding experiences is to be able to impact lives. In an increasingly competitive market, it's our members' successes that become our best advertisements."
With community-focused neighborhoods that resonate with the supportive atmosphere of Anytime Fitness gyms, the brand is poised for rapid growth in the state.
Anytime Fitness is the gym that truly cares for its members by providing supportive coaching, community engagement, and convenient and affordable exercise with a roadmap to success. When members join one gym, they gain access to all of the 4,300 Anytime Fitness gyms worldwide, at no extra cost. Gyms are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and are equipped with state-of-the-art strength training and cardio equipment, personal training sessions, and small group programs. Through support and guidance from trainers and staff and encouragement from a community of members, Anytime Fitness aims to motivate individuals, no matter where they live or what their physical fitness level is – together, Let's Make Healthy Happen.
"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."
Interested franchisees who purchase Tennessee territories prior to April 1, 2019 will receive a 25 percent discount on the franchise fee, a $10,000 savings on a single territory purchase.
