Dave Anytime Fitness Global

There’s no way around the gloat when you earn a title this big. And we’re proud! Thanks to lots of hard work and innumerable passionate players, we can now celebrate being called the best in the world.

That’s right. Entrepreneur magazine has weighed franchise size, growth, and financial strength and stability to get at their rankings, and Anytime Fitness has been named the #1 “Top Global Franchise.”

What this means for our members is that access is trusted, VAST—and growing. Anytime Fitness members’ one little key fob now opens the doors of gyms within 22 countries, 24/7 (at no extra cost).
