These figures are estimates of the complete investments in setting-up an Anytime Fitness Center and operating it for 3 months. It is possible to significantly exceed costs in any of the areas above. Some costs will vary in relation to the physical size of the fitness center. A lower cost center is one that would require fewer leasehold improvements and fewer equipment expenditures. Moderate and higher cost fitness centers may require extensive interior renovations and additional equipment. The above figures do not include extensive exterior renovations.

Putting in your time

While many of our club owners enjoy the flexibility to pursue other passions, any new business requires a significant time commitment. So be realistic in assessing your availability for launching your new club as well as day-to-day operations. Of course, we’re here to help with everything from site selection to operations with 360° Support.

More clubs, more opportunity

Many of our owners enjoy the added earnings potential of owning more than one club. We offer discounts on franchise fees for additional clubs to help our owners dream big.

The intangibles

Of course, every business owner hopes to earn a profit. But financials aside, the things we hear Anytime Fitness owners rave about are the rewards of a healthier lifestyle – for their members and themselves. After all, if you truly love your work you’re bound to enjoy a more passionate, fulfilling life.
