Workout Anytime INFO
About Workout Anytime
Workout Anytime was founded in 1999 by fitness industry veterans John Quattrocchi and Steve Strickland. Both had worked with some of the biggest names in the fitness industry, including American Fitness and Bally Total Fitness, and wanted to deliver a first-class, low-cost workout experience for customers that would also turn a profit for franchisees.
Today, the 24/7 fitness brand’s customers enjoy results-based workouts in more than 160 units across the United States. Workout Anytime prides itself on offering customers community-minded spaces that emphasize building relationships. In addition to fitness, Workout Anytime is focused on wellness and providing exercise programs aimed at helping customers with their overall mental and emotional health. As for the brand’s passionate and committed franchisees, they enjoy a dynamic business opportunity with a proven model that helps them meet their financial and lifestyle goals.
While Workout Anytime has come a long way since its inception, the fitness brand is far from finished. In 2019, Workout Anytime sold 26 franchises, with 13 of those sales being from existing owners, which speaks to the brand’s successful franchise system. The brand’s team continues to work together to help Workout Anytime expand its footprint and reach its full potential from both a franchise and consumer perspective.
