Coach, Care, Connect

Anytime Fitness offers the most comprehensive support structure and training programme available to franchisees in the fitness industry.

Our expert team will coach you at every stage of your franchise journey, initially working with our new openings and development team to help you find your perfect site, negotiating competitive financial rates and commercial terms on your behalf.

A dedicated Presales Manager will oversee the all-important presale stage, working with you to ensure you open with as many members as possible. After successfully opening your doors, you will be assigned a dedicated Franchise Performance Coach (FPC), who have all operated health clubs at a senior level. Their ongoing coaching helps you to run successful, profitable health clubs and maximise all revenue opportunities available to them.

We’re committed to our positioning statement of ‘Let’s Make Healthy Happen’, with our clubs and franchisees supporting our members with their health goals and taking the time to help them succeed.

The Ideal Franchise Partner

We’re looking for potential owners who are passionate about improving the health of the nation and making a difference to people’s lives. With joint venture opportunities and funding support available from major banks, you could be closer than you think to owning your very own health club.

No fitness industry experience is required and many of our franchisees choose to employ an experienced Club Manager to run their club. The Club Manager oversees the day-to-day operation of the club, with the role including sales, managing staff, ensuring the club is safe and clean and greeting members and prospects.

Franchising opportunities are available across the UK and Ireland. Due to a recent change in legislation, there are now greater opportunities to open an Anytime Fitness club on the high street. The amendment to the Uses Classes Order means there are fewer planning obstacles when moving into previous retail units and allowing a quicker turnaround for facilities in sought-after, high footfall locations.
