With the growing number of Americans engaged in sport and specialized training programs as a way of combating obesity and lack of physical activity, the #1 selection out of 500 franchises was Anytime Fitness. Sure enough, the membership rates at this popular club are staggering with over 1.9 million members nationwide. However, what has made Anytime Fitness truly unique is its focus on excellent customer service and 24-hour availability, where people are continuously pushed to challenge their limits.
