Anytime Fitness: A Healthy Fit for Entrepreneurial Vets
Article Sponsored by: JDog
Anytime Fitness has a simple mission: “To help entrepreneurs realize their dreams of owning their own businesses, while contributing positively to their communities, and to help our gym members get to a healthier place.”
Founded in 2002, Anytime Fitness now has more than 3,000 gyms operating in all 50 U.S. states and 30 countries. And it’s added an average of 300 gyms a year each year for the past eight years. Furthermore, approximately 10 percent of the Anytime Fitness gyms in the United States are owned by military veterans - and the company would like to see that percentage rise.
Sgt Aaron Spears is the owner of an Anytime Fitness franchise in Webster Groves, MO. He served as a Scout Sniper in the United States Marine Corps Reserves from 2003-2009. “My wife and I became interested in buying a franchise in 2012 after talking to a colleague who owned an Anytime Fitness in San Antonio, TX. Our friend spoke so highly about the company and gave us an insight to how we would run our future gym. The military discount and low monthly franchise fee is one of the main things that appealed to us at first, along with the flexibility of owning and operating a franchise that has a proven success record with limited staff.”
