Franchise System

Anytime Fitness offers entrepreneurs the opportunity to start their own business, while also making a real difference to people’s lives. There are two different types of franchise ownership. Individual franchising allows for one or more gyms to be owned and operated directly. The franchise is purchased from the master franchisee in that region and continued dealings with the company are with the master franchisee. The second option relates to an area developer agreement; the franchise rights are purchased directly from the company. The franchisee can decide to operate some or all gyms in that region, or to sell sites to individual franchisees.
