A new 24 hour gym, WORKOUT ANYTIME, opened in a Naperville, Illinois last week. Eric Nagel, WORKOUT ANYTIME vice president of sales and operations in Illinois, thinks the community will love the brand's model. "We don't get crowded because we are a small gym that is 24 hours a day," Nagel told The Daily Herald. "There's no hassle with the equipment. You don't wait for treadmills like you do at a big club." The new affordable, neighborhood Naperville gym is a part of larger expansion plans WORKOUT ANYTIME has for the Chicagoland area. They plan to open 40 locations in the next three years, inspired by the success of their three other area clubs.
"It proved our concept not only worked in the south, but it worked in the colder climates as well," Trotter [WORKOUT ANYTIME VP of Development] said.
The Naperville club is 6,500 square feet, and will serve roughly 2,000 members.
