About the Business
Anytime Fitness Essex opened as a new franchise in 2012 steadily growing members, the business now has in excess of 1200 members. The club is situated in an excellent location on a busy retail park with free unrestricted parking directly outside the gym.
The property is 5,000 square feet and is a large open planned premise giving it a spacious feel. The club is fitted out to a high standard and the equipment is excellently maintained. There is a studio incorporated within the gym which offers bespoke virtual classes, which is an excellent use of the 24-hour membership and a great selling point.
There is potential for growth with this already well-established business, which has a turnover in excess of £425,000. The right owner/s are in a prime position to drive the business forward and expand on the growing membership base that the current owner has developed.
Who is the franchisor

In that time it has become the largest health chain with over 2,700 Centres open in 15 countries and continues to grow at a rapid rate. In the UK there are well over 100 Centres open and 2017 is expected to see this number rise dramatically. Anytime Fitness was awarded second place in the Entrepreneur magazine Franchise 500 list and number one in the Fitness category for the fourth year in a row. It is a business that is not standing still.
Anytime Fitness has a blend of factors that make it unique. It has convenience and affordability combined with high quality equipment in a great environment. Centres are situated close to the members, who can exercise at any time, day or night. Many Centres also offer personal trainers. There is also Anywhere Club Access which allows members access to all Anytime Fitness Centres worldwide.
The most distinctive element of an Anytime Fitness Centre is the use of proprietary access software, security and surveillance technology. The integration of these systems allows owners to operate safe and secure Centres with greatly reduced staffing. This system allows Centres to be open 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. It includes remote monitoring from a closed circuit television system to allow members to feel safe and secure.
