Anytime Fitness was founded by Chuck Runyon, Dave Mortensen, and Jeff Klinger in 2002 after working for a consulting firm on the improvement of under performing athletic clubs across the U.S.
The partners quickly began franchising and by 2005 Anytime Fitness had 77 locations.
By 2012 Anytime Fitness had expanded to 10 countries: Canada, Australia, Grand Cayman, Japan, Mexico, Holland, Poland, New Zealand, Qatar, and the U.K.
Anytime Fitness locations are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. There are gym locations in all 50 states and 50 countries worldwide.
Due to the coronavirus crisis of 2020, many gym owners are building gyms outdoors so users feel safer.
The chain has 4,520 gym locations, over 2 million clients, and had $1.45 billion in revenue in 2019.
