Anytime Fitness Now Open In Glorietta 5
I’ve been to Anytime Fitness here in Evia Lifestyle Center for my free 3 days trial last May this year. I’ve been wanting to be fit for a long time, and it’s just last May that I decided to make that goal into a reality. Since then, I’ve been working out for 4 months and now I feel lighter, my clothes are smaller and yes I feel good about myself. I need to lose more and achieved my goal of 55kg by December. Not getting back the fat that I lose is also the thing I do. Sayang naman yung hirap ko kung babalik sila.
Anyway, the other day I was so happy when I received an invite to attend the opening of Anytime Fitness 50th store located in Glorietta 5 Makati. Yes, they keep on growing!
The brand is recognized by Entrepreneur magazine as the world’s top global franchise in 2015 and 2016, as well as the International Franchise of the Year by Franchise License Asia three years in a row.
“We are thrilled to replicate our global success in a country like the Philippines, where the hunger for health is growing. Our franchise system has allowed Anytime Fitness to support local communities’ increasing need for safe, secure, and welcoming environments for Filipinos access to get to a healthier place. We are honored to have franchisees who are just as committed to providing our members with the tools to help them reach their goals as we are,” says Anytime Fitness Asia CEO and Master Franchisee Maurice Levine.

In less than three years since Anytime Fitness opened its first gym at Pioneer Center, Pasig City in 2014, the chain has branched out beyond Metro Manila to Laguna, Pampanga, Baguio, Cavite, Cebu, and Davao. With strong year-on-year growth of almost 250%, Anytime Fitness Philippines joins the ranks of over 3,000 gyms in 25 countries servicing over 2.5 million members annually.
“Anytime Fitness empowers our franchisees through our 4 Ps: People, Purpose, Profit, and Play. Our people – from the members to the staff – are at the core of our business. Their goal of a healthier place, is our shared goal, and we all have fun reaching it,” Levine explains. “There is no pressure to lift heavy weights or look like a model, and our team truly cares about each member that goes through our doors. Our facilities – open 24/7, secure, and world-class – that’s what inspires people to enter. But it’s our people, our culture, our environment that makes members stay.”
With each membership opening the door to every other Anytime Fitness around the world, the brand has a unique global reciprocity that allows members to work out not just anytime, but anywhere as well. “The Glorietta branch, just like most of our gyms, are located in communities within 1-3 kilometers of where people work, play, and live. We look forward to further growth in the Philippines, in Asia, and around the world, and we invite everyone to get to a healthier place with us,” Levine states.
I can’t wait to go back to Anytime Fitness and achieve my dream weight and stronger body before the year ends. I will update you on my fitness journey on my next post.
