With open and active clubs in Lumphini, K Village, Pakkred, Nanglinchee Market Place Mall, and their most recent opening at Amarin Plaza (watch a video here), Anytime Fitness is on the rise to expand quickly in Thailand, starting in Bangkok.
The fitness chain’s business model for their gyms offers a no-frills experience to its members: all the necessary equipment and assistance, as well as free group classes, are offered in a 24/7 format at affordable prices.
“We want to be accessible to anyone, anywhere, anytime,” said Anytime Fitness affiliate, Billy Pech. “The fitness industry in Thailand is leveled in a way where all fitness brands look and offer the same thing. Anytime Fitness is here to offer a different kind of experience with our surprisingly personable people,” he added.
While Bangkok is on steady growth, expansion outside the city is also likely in the future. Like the neighboring countries under Anytime Fitness Asia, it is a goal to expand all throughout the country especially in places most big-box gyms are not expected to open, they ascertain.
Founded in 2002, it took Anytime Fitness just 16 years to reach 4,000 gyms around the world. According to FRANData, the chain is just one of 15 franchisors located in 30 or more countries.
The first Anytime Fitness in Thailand opened in Bangkok in 2017, with a view to expanding its Asian footprint. Since then, over 500 gyms have opened throughout the region, which is expected to double in number by 2020.
A new design was launched in Amarin Plaza, and all future clubs in Thailand will carry the new design to usher in a new era for the brand.
Join in Barcelona and workout in Bangkok… or vice-versa
One of the benefits of an Anytime Fitness membership is the franchise’s “Anywhere Access” policy: Join one Anytime Fitness gym and you can use any of the chain’s more than 4,000 gyms worldwide at no additional cost. This gives members the option of exercising not only whenever they choose (Anytime Fitness gyms are open 24/7/365), but virtually wherever they like. And with gyms in all 50 states in the U.S. and more than 30 countries and regions, the “Anywhere Access” policy can be a real cost-saver – especially for frequent travelers.
