PORTLAND, Maine--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Anytime Fitness, the fastest-growing co-ed gym in the world, recently announced plans to introduce seven locations in targeted areas throughout the state of Maine. The community-focused brand will ramp up growth through strategic franchise partnerships and aims to open the new locations by the end of this year.
Currently, there are five thriving Anytime Fitness locations open throughout Portland, Augusta and Fairfield. With increasingly health-conscious communities and several open territories available for development, Maine is an obvious and attractive area for growth. Targeted markets throughout the state include Auburn, Cape Elizabeth, Caribou, Gardiner, Lewiston, Old Orchard Beach and Old Town/Milford.
Already finding success in the market is multi-unit franchisee Alex LaVallee, who owns nine locations throughout the Northeastern region of the United States. “The state of Maine is extremely hospitable – anywhere you go has that charming, small-town feel,” LaVallee said. “That’s a huge component to Anytime Fitness’ success thus far in the region; the culture and atmosphere at our gyms perfectly align with the community-based values of Maine.”
Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, Anytime Fitness offers convenient and affordable exercise with supportive coaching and community events. When members join one gym, they gain access to all of the 3,500+ Anytime Fitness gyms worldwide, at no extra cost. Gyms are equipped with state-of-the-art strength training and cardio equipment, offer personal training sessions and small group programs. Through support and guidance from trainers and staff and encouragement from a community of members, Anytime Fitness aims to motivate individuals on their journey to Get to a Healthier Place®, no matter where they live or what their physical fitness level is.
“We’re not looking to simply grow a franchise brand – we’re looking to grow and help individuals reach their specific goals and achieve a healthy, happy lifestyle,” said Chuck Runyon, co-founder and CEO of Anytime Fitness. “We’re searching for local entrepreneurs who share our passion for building relationships and helping others so that we can achieve that vision in communities across the state.”
