“Somewhere along the line, people started believing that exercise had to be hard work,” said Anytime Fitness co-owner Renee Reed.  “That’s simply not true.  Many forms of exercise, especially outdoors on a beautiful spring day, will leave you laughing and feeling awesome – and we aim to prove it.”
 
The 5 consecutive “May Free Workouts” (May 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30) will be led by personal trainers who are gym staff members, and they are designed for people of every fitness level.  The workouts will feature common exercises like squats, planks, medicine ball slams, and more, but also fun, creative activities and team-building events.  Everyone in the neighborhood is invited to participate.  You don’t need to be a member of Anytime Fitness to join in the fun.
 
“We’ve recently developed new fitness programs and a mobile app to help our members stay active whether they’re at the gym, in their homes, or anywhere else,” said Reed.   “The May Free Workouts are another example of our firm belief that there are countless ways to lead a healthy lifestyle.  You just need to find activities that are right for you – and we’d love to help you do it.”
 
The May Free Workouts concept, inspired by the grassroots efforts of a few Anytime Fitness clubs that regularly offer free outdoor “boot camps,” has grown into a nationwide campaign to promote physical fitness.The Anytime Fitness gym in Dallas Bishop Arts is one of approximately 1,000 Anytime Fitness clubs across the United States that will host the free outdoor exercise sessions this year.

For others, it’s improving balance or flexibility.  The important thing is to find physical activities that you enjoy, so being active is something you look forward to – rather than dread.”

ENTREPRENEUR MAGAZINE RANKS ANYTIME FITNESS #1 on FRANCHISE 500® LIST

Anytime Fitness Bishop Arts Celebrates 6 Year Anniversary

 Dallas, TX – Anytime Fitness, the world’s largest and fastest-growing co-ed fitness club chain, is ranked #1 on Entrepreneur magazine’s annual Franchise 500® list.  On a blistering hot streak, Anytime Fitness was also named “One of America’s Most Promising Companies” by Forbes earlier this year, and honored as the “Best Place to Work” by Minnesota Business magazine two years in a row.

“The #1 ranking is a credit to our fabulous franchisees,” said Chuck Runyon, CEO and co-founder of Anytime Fitness. “In addition to running convenient and affordable gyms, our franchisees and their staffs provide their members with personal service that gets real results.  That personal touch and high level of engagement is what differentiates Anytime Fitness from many other gyms and what has strengthened and grown our brand worldwide.”

“We’re incredibly proud to be part of the world’s #1 franchise system,” said Renee Reed, co-owner of the Anytime Fitness gym located at 611 N. Bishop Avenue in Oak Cliff.  “To celebrate, we’re offering a series of special membership deals. To start the New Year off right, new members can join Anytime Fitness for just $14 January 7-9, 2014.  New members can also add a 21-day personal training program for just $49.   Existing Anytime Fitness members will receive one month free for every friend they refer who joins the club.”

“Obesity and the rising costs of unhealthy lifestyles have become very serious problems worldwide,” said Dave Mortensen, President and co-founder of Anytime Fitness.  “Busy people seeking real results are turning to Anytime Fitness because our gyms are convenient and affordable, and because we give our members individual attention, in the gym and online via AnytimeHealth.com, 24 hours a day.”

According to Entrepreneur, the most important factors for inclusion on its Franchise 500® list are:  financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system.

“Considering the reputation of the other franchises ranked in the top 10, this is a tremendous honor for Anytime Fitness,” said Reed.  “We’re proud of the fact that our small business has a big impact on the health and well-being of people in our community.”

Anytime Fitness (www.anytimefitness.com), the first fitness franchise ever to be ranked #1, placed higher than several franchise giants in the 2014 Franchise 500®, including Subway, Jiffy Lube, Hampton Hotels and McDonald’s. The franchise was founded in 2002, and since its debut on the list in 2006 at #261, has climbed rapidly through the publication’s ranking, reaching #1 in just under 10 years.

2014 FRANCHISE 500® RANKINGS: www.entrepreneur.com/franchise500

While growth in the fitness industry overall has been slow the past several years, Anytime Fitness has opened at least 250 new clubs each of the last five years.  Late last year, the franchise celebrated the opening of its 2,000th club and it now has 2,400 clubs located in all 50 states and 16 countries, serving nearly 2,000,000 members.

It took Anytime Fitness only 10 years to reach 2,000 franchises – less than half the time it took Subway (23 years) and McDonald’s (32 years) to reach the same milestone.  Only 1% of all franchise systems worldwide have at least 1,000 units.

In addition to the Entrepreneur accolade, Anytime Fitness also was recently named one of “10 great franchise bets” by CNNMoney (June, 2011) and the “#1 Best Franchise Business Model” by FranchiseChatter.com.  Forbes magazine (February 2012) ranks Anytime Fitness #18 on its list of “Top 20 Franchises for the Buck.”

Fitness Q & A:  Should I Try “Olympic Lifts”?

 

Question: My personal trainer has been trying to get me to do Olympic lifts, but I’m a little apprehensive. What do you think?

Answer: First of all, for those who may not know what “Olympic lifts” are, they include the deadlift, snatch, and clean.  If you have a good trainer, like our team at Anytime Fitness Bishop Arts, and he/ she thinks you’re ready for some Olympic lifts, I say go for it. Olympic lifts are great because most of them are multi-joint, full-body exercises. The movements used by most recreational weight lifters are isolation exercises, so you should relish the opportunity to utilize the muscles of the entire body in a coordinated fashion.

 

Our certified trainers at Anytime Fitness appreciate Olympic lifts because they are designed to help increase strength and power (think strength at high speed), and amazingly enough, they positively affect your cardiovascular system too. Another benefit is the fact that significant volume (sets x reps) is not needed, meaning you can do an effective workout in less time compared to more traditional forms of strength training. It is important to be properly trained on form, however, since these lifts typically involve heavier weights and overhead training. That said, I assume your trainer is well prepared to teach you these lifts (at least I hope so). Like I said, give ‘em a shot. I think you’ll find that they’re quite fun to do!

Anytime Fitness Expert Answers Your  Health and Wellness Questions

 

By Renee Reed

 

Question: I’ve been having a tough time with my energy levels for my 6am workouts. I was thinking coffee might help with this, but it seems like it’s always getting mixed reviews. Any cause for concern before a workout?

 

 Answer:  First things first. If you’re experiencing low energy levels, and you’re not necessarily focused on fat loss, try having a small breakfast, or even a bar or a shake, before you go workout. This will definitely provide the much-needed energy you’re looking for. However, if, like many of the members at Anytime Fitness, you’re trying to drop body fat and you’d like to avoid calories that early in the morning, coffee is an excellent alternative.

 

The caffeine in coffee is considered a central nervous system stimulant and will provide a boost of energy, though the effect varies greatly among individuals. Caffeine is actually considered an ergogenic aid, meaning it enhances physical performance. In the right amounts, caffeine has been shown to reduce the perception of effort during a workout, which means your workout will seem easier than it actually is. Not bad for a little cup o’ joe, huh?

 

 Keep in mind, coffee does increase heart rate, respiratory rate, and blood pressure, and it can make you a bit jittery if you’re a newbie. Read the label carefully, as many energy drinks or café coffee  list the mg per serving and contain more than one serving.  Luckily, these effects are relatively mild, especially for healthy folks. In fact, much of the research these days is focused on the potential health benefits of coffee, rather than any health risks.  As I tell my clients at Anytime Fitness, we  suggest keeping your daily dosage under 200 mg (and under 100 if you are pregnant).
