Opening new clubs at a rate of nearly one every business day while serving more than 1,300,000 members worldwide, Anytime Fitness is honored to be recognized as a “Top Global Franchise” by Entrepreneur magazine. The world’s largest and fastest-growing co-ed fitness club chain, Anytime Fitness was the highest-ranking fitness center, and #16 overall (up from #37 in 2010), on Entrepreneur’s “Top Global Franchise” list, which is featured in the October, 2011 issue of the magazine.
According to Entrepreneur, the most important factors for inclusion in its “Top Global Franchise” list are: financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system.
“We know that the health and happiness of our members, club owners and staff are dependent upon what we do every day,” said Chuck Runyon, CEO and co-founder of Anytime Fitness. “With nearly 1,700 clubs now open in nine countries, we humbly believe that Anytime Fitness is the most convenient fitness option on the planet. And we’re very serious about our mission: to improve the self-esteem of the world.”
In addition to the “Top Global Franchise” honor, Anytime Fitness was also named one of “10 great franchise bets” by CNNMoney (June, 2011) and the “#1 Best Franchise Business Model” by FranchiseChatter.com. In the last 12 months alone, Anytime Fitness has opened nearly 300 clubs worldwide, including clubs in New Zealand, Poland, Mexico, Japan, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and the company’s 100th club in Australia. Anytime Fitness’s first Middle Eastern club is set to open in Qatar next month and the company has plans to open its first international corporate club in the United Kingdom in early 2012.
