Anytime Fitness, the American fitness franchise, announced the opening of its first branch in Thailand, adding to its 3,600 gyms and 3 million members worldwide, becoming the seventh country to open in the region.
“We are thrilled to be in Thailand and help support local Thai communities become healthier, and also offer a financially compelling franchise system that delivers a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for Thais,” said Anytime Fitness Master Franchisee, Maurice Levine.
Chuck Runyon, CEO of the company, affirms that the chain’s success—which has been awarded International Franchise of the Year by Franchise License Asia for three years in a row—is based on focusing on “a consistent and surprisingly personable experience for all our members, whether you are in Thailand or in the United States.”
Based on what the brand has defined as their “4 Ps” – People, Purpose, Profit, and Play – the CEO explains that at their outlets “there is no pressure to lift heavy weights or look like a model, and our team truly cares about each member that comes through our doors. Our facilities – open 24/7, secure, and world-class –is what inspires people to enter. But it’s our people, our culture and our environment that keeps our members coming back.”
“The Lumpini gym, just like most of our gyms, is located in communities within 1-3 kilometers of where people work, play and live. We look forward to further growth in Thailand, Asia, and around the world and we invite everyone to ‘get to a healthier place’ with us,” added Maurice.
