Workout Anytime, a premiere nation-wide 24/7 fitness facility, will be opening in Calhoun around Christmas this year, just in time for those New Year’s resolutions.
The area was a perfect place for a facility. “We looked at Calhoun and were interested instantly,” said Workout Anytime Regional Director Ted Brisebois. “We don’t just randomly put gyms in; we visited the community and talked to people, went into businesses and visited. One thing that was needed in this area (for a gym) was a high value at a low price point. I’m not saying other fitness centers don’t have value, I’m saying not a lot have a such a low price point (for what is offered). We have top of the line equipment; we offer unlimited tanning, hydro massage beds and even guests privileges every time you come in (to workout). You can bring a person in every time you work out, the same person each time, unlimited. All for $25 dollars. There’s also a $15 per month membership, which works out to 50 cents per day. So you can see, there’s a lot of value. Plus, we’re open 24-hours a day, seven days a week. There are mills in the area; people who work second or third shift can now work out anytime. Also, our membership is a true month-to-month membership. There’s no cancellation fee and there’s no yearly contracts. The only requirement is a 30-day notice to get a member out of the billing cycle. The business model is perfect for this area.”
Workout Anytime, based in Atlanta, is billed as a true 24-hour, seven-day-a-week fitness concept with approximately 150 facilities across the United States. Founded by fitness veterans John Quattrocchi and Steve Strickland, the company was formed to provide members with first-class fitness facilities at the lowest cost possible.
“Right now, if you’re a member here and you go to Atlanta or Nashville for the weekend or on business, you can use one of our clubs there,” said Brisebois. “Once you’re a member, you can use all 150 of the clubs across the nation. It really helps with people that travel.”
Workout Anytime Calhoun opened their Facebook page this week, which gives updates on the opening of the facility.
According to Brisebois, staff is expected to be on-site beginning Nov. 1, where people can begin to join the facility. “We’ll be doing what we refer to as Charter Membership,” said Brisebois. “These are people that join the club before it opens. You can join for $1. Pay the $1 to secure a spot and then begin working out once the club opens. Monthly billing will not begin until the club opens.”
