From startup to marketing, the training never stops! Our franchise coaches and other corporate staff are continually developing new and exciting ways to support you.

startup support

We strive to answer all your questions and provide you with the information necessary to make an informed decision about becoming an Anytime Fitness franchisee. A few of the many services available to you during your startup phase include:

site selection and lease negotiation

Assistance is available at no-cost through our association with Franchise Real Estate (FRE). The team at FRE has extensive knowledge of the franchise industry, and has an in-depth understanding of the needs of Anytime Fitness franchisees. Their experienced brokers will assist you with finding an ideal site for your club, including a thorough review of the market area and its demographics. Plus, they are experienced negotiators that can assist with obtaining rent and build-out allowances.

As important, FRE provides exclusive brokerage services for Anytime Fitness, and they do not work with any fitness competitors. They represent the majority of our franchisees, from single club owners to multi-site operators, negotiating hundreds of Anytime Fitness leases each year.

This is also available at no-cost to Anytime Fitness franchisees through our Financing Department. Whether you are a first time franchisee or an established entrepreneur, we can assist you.
