how does an anytime fitness club create revenue?
The majority of your revenue will be derived from membership sales. We will recommend a monthly dues program with a one-time enrollment fee. Each member has the option to pay in full or pay dues each month via EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer). An EFT payment can be made using a credit card, checking account, or savings account. Your membership rates may vary based on area demographics and the offerings at your facility. We can help you set your pricing structure.
