Anytime Fitness Plus More on our New 20 to Watch List
An Anytime Fitness in Japan is among the brand's 3,000 gyms worldwide.
Coming soon in a Franchise Times issue near you is our annual 20 to Watch feature, which highlights the people, brands and ideas in franchising that we think will be trending next year.
Here’s one teaser: Anytime Fitness hit 3,000 gyms worldwide in 2015, a hefty milestone made even more remarkable because the fitness franchise got there in 13 years, after opening its first gym in 2002. That’s faster than 20 years for McDonald’s, 25 years for Subway and 37 years for Dunkin’ Donuts, according to Mark Daly, Anytime’s national media director. We’re watching the other end of the spectrum, too, to see which emerging fitness brand breaks from the pack.
