Sitting down with Drew Mobley, owner/operator
How did your business begin?
Anytime Fitness is a national franchise that started in 2002. Our clubs are independently owned and operated. We are currently the largest fitness franchise with more than 3,000 locations worldwide servicing more than three million members.
What is the mission of your business?
The sole mission and foundation of our club is to help build strong personal relationships with our members. Helping our members get to a healthier and happier place is at the core of what we do. Our owners are people, too, and we continually strive to understand your individual goals and help you reach them.
What differentiates your business from other specialists in the field?
As a locally owned co-ed fitness center, we serve people of all fitness levels from ages 18 to 100+! We provide a boutique-style gym experience where members can interact with one another without the frills and intimidation of a bigger club. Our biggest niche is having a 24/7 operation that allows those with a busy lifestyle to find time to work out. With one membership equaling 3,000+ clubs, we provide an outstanding value for our clients. Talk about no excuses!
What do you like best about your line of work?
Getting to interact with our members who share one common goal, which is to get to a healthier place. Nothing beats the reward of helping our clients set and achieve goals each day. When you get to work and it doesn’t feel like work, you know you’re in the right profession.
What is something people would be surprised to learn about your business?
On top of being a 24-hour fitness center, we also offer one-on-one personal training services to each member when they sign up. We believe that everyone can benefit from some form of professional coaching with our certified personal trainers, and we want to be sure our members get started on the right track when it comes to reaching their fitness goals.
