Make sure your owner actually know what there doing..
GENERAL MANAGER (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – October 18, 2018
The job itself is pretty self explanatory, especially if you love working in the fitness industry. The problem is the owners of the Pittsburgh locations. They have no idea what they are doing and micro manage the heck out of you. The regional manager is an idiot, and severely overweight although with the owner. Should not be allowed to run fitness facilities. There are only about the money. Club culture stinks.
Great place to work, freindlyand supportive atmosphere
Owner, Operator and Manager (Former Employee) – Morgan City, LA – October 16, 2018
I can only speak for the two locations that I owned and from my experience dealing witht heh corporate office. I would highly recommend Anytime Fintess to anyone as a business investment or as a member. While each club is independently owned and operated, the majority of clubs that you will run across and clean, friendly and top-notch.
Personal Trainer / Group Fitness Instructor (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – October 15, 2018
Interesting place to work for, although wasn't getting many hours or options due to lack of traffic for the specific location., or lack of interest from the clients to purchase personal training packages.
General Manager (Current Employee) – Monument, CO – October 12, 2018
I have learned a very vast amount on what it takes to run and maintain a healthy small business franchise. A lot of hard work and dedication can go along way in this type of business. I love working a setting a great foundation for my employees. We strive to help others in the healthy lifestyle world.
Gym Manager and Head Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – October 12, 2018
The Franchise itself left a lot to be desired but the individual owner was fantastic. The franchise is constantly pushing for gyms to buy more of the franchise's products and redesign their gyms to keep gym owners from ever getting out of debt with the franchise.
Co-Owner, Operator (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ME – October 12, 2018
I am the owner so this is a biased review. I feel we treat our employees fariry and that we value their contributions. We do offer full benefits to some employees and plan to expand this overtime as we grow. We do believe in work life balance but also expect our team to all give 100%.
GYM MANAGER HIRE (Current Employee) – MI – September 28, 2018
It comes down to the invdivual owners and the how they see fit to run the club. The C2i have not been helpful and have not returned any of my calls once. There is a big disconnect with the staff and managment. I currently manage one of top locations North America and the the owner is “hands off” and only calls in to check in once in a blue moon. There is no incentives for top preformers. That is why the turn over rate is high at many locations. The lack of leadership and business sense is clear from people they are behind the scenes. Corpoate wants to have these yearly rah rah meetings to live “mission” passion, purpose and play. These buzz words are just to force you to attend or get fined. It designed to motivate and network. At the end of day it’s no different than any other franchise that give the illusion they are here to truly help you succeed. How does the # 1 Francise offer no health benefits, paid time off and no retirement? The brand has over 4000 locations however has no career track for advancement for top. performers. Even planet fitness offers more opportunities! Remember it’s the people that build your culture and brand. However I have many friends that work in other location that absolutely love the brand and work with the owners to create a positive work environment. I’ve talked to serveral regional managers and they actually are agree it does come down to the individual owner. There seems to be no accountability many owners of these franchises, as they run their business different from the Anytime mission. Eventually go out of businessmore... or create a negative work culture. There is no doubt there is a big disconnect at the corporate level also. They seem to geared to help open more locations because that’s where the money is each time opens a club. After that they seem to be “hands off” and on your own. Lastly there are many great locations that are living the mission and are ideal locations to work at. But these are diamond in the rough and hard to find.less
Free membership, customers
No benefits, no career advancements, poor management, high turn over
Certified Personal Trainer (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – September 27, 2018
I had a great time as a personal trainer with Anytime Fitness. The facility was brand new and the members were absolutely amazing. My owners were top notch both personally and professionally. I would have continued working at the facility if it wasn't for having to relocate, and I would have sought another position with Anytime Fitness if the compensation for personal trainers was higher. I could not have made a fair standard of living if I did not have supplemental income while I was doing this job.
Great franchise and I believe in the mission, Enjoyed being able to set my own schedule, I loved the members/my clients
The pay for Personal Trainers is exceptionally low

Public Relations Assistant (Former Employee) – Chambersburg, PA – September 19, 2018
Anytime Fitness, as a gym business, is always going to be a place to learn new skills. For me, this gym taught public relations, cleaning, customer service, friendliness, interactions, advertising, phone call answering, filing, and organization.
Free use of the gym after shift, open and calm environment, friendly atmosphere, job progression
