Anytime Fitness recently ranked tenth in the list of the Fastest-Growing Franchises, published in the March issue of Entrepreneur magazine.
“Nothing can stop the smartest franchises from growing—not even a pandemic!” says Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur’s editor-in-chief. “We’ve been impressed with how innovative franchises have pivoted and adapted this past year, and are happy to celebrate the ones who keep pushing forward and growing.”
Franchises on this list are ranked based on the net total of units (both franchised and company-owned) added globally from July 2019 to July 2020, with ties broken based on percentage growth. (In previous years, only US and Canadian unit growth was considered—2021 marks the first year that the ranking is based on systemwide growth, in recognition of the increasingly global nature of franchising.) Anytime Fitness’s position in the Fastest-Growing Franchises ranking is evidence of the strength and appeal of its concept, even during challenging times.
Anytime Fitness is the fastest-growing gym franchise in the world, averaging 300 new gyms per year while serving 4.2 million members at more than 4,800 gyms and is the only franchise of any kind to have locations on all seven continents. All franchised gyms are individually owned and operated and features the “Anywhere Access” policy which allows members access to any Anytime Fitness gym worldwide.
