Owning an Anytime Fitness
Why an Anytime Fitness Franchise Opportunity?

An Anytime Fitness franchise allows you to truly have the best of both worlds: a business with a track record for growth in a high demand market segment with a lifestyle that allows for flexibility and family time.  Here’s why Anytime Fitness is the right opportunity for you, allowing you to take advantage of this rapidly growing space:

  • Investing in yourself, but not being by yourself because of our systems and support.
  • Low up-front investment in a recession-resilient industry.
  • Say goodbye to endless work-weeks; let your business work for you.
  • Find purpose in helping others improve their lives.
  • We are a proven concept with over 3,500 clubs now open worldwide.
  • Our proven model, new owner training, real estate assistance, and on-going franchisee support are some of the big reasons our existing franchisees continue to sign up for additional locations.

What is the Investment?

Start-up costs to open an Anytime Fitness vary from market to market, based primarily on the cost of real estate.  The overall investment ranges from $131,002 to $722,796, depending on whether you are interested in their regular model or an Anytime Fitness Express.  This includes a one-time franchise fee of $42,500.  Unlike most franchises, the brand does not collect a percentage royalty on gross sales.  Anytime Fitness only charges a monthly fee of $549 to cover its ongoing training and support, and for continuing use of the franchise license, marks, etc.  More information can be found in the Item 7 of the brand's Franchise Disclosure Document.
