Anytime Fitness in Melbourne will be officially celebrating its Grand Opening on February 27, and as its name suggests, the newly minted facility is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year with nonstop security. Novice calorie burners and ripped Michelangelo models alike can take advantage of a three-month membership, which equips bodies with enough treadmills, cycles, elliptical machines, weights, and rowing machines to train them to run a marathon inside a swimming pool filled with mud. Members can take advantage of unlimited daycare as they focus their energy in a personal training session. Anytime Fitness’s staff of fitness gurus works with exercisers to set new fitness goals, personalize workout programs, share nutrition tips, and correct form during strenuous pinky exercises.
A schedule of group fitness workshops includes toning and heart-pumping workouts such as 15- to 55-minute stints of yoga, kickboxing, and spin, an intensive wool-refining seminar. Zumba classes shed inches with Latin-inspired dance steps, and boot-camp sessions blend intervals of resistance training with cardio routines.
Anytime Fitness, which boasts 1,976 clubs in North America, makes it easier for average folks to etch out time for exercise by doing one simple thing: staying open 24 hours a day for 365 days a year. As fit-seekers challenge themselves on Nautilus and Hammer Strength cardio and strength machines and hoist free weights in clean, well-stocked facilities, security monitoring ensures they’re safe and producing enough sweat to meet official government standards. Members can also ramp up their exercise regimens with the help of Anytime Fitness’ staff of personal trainers, who demonstrate moves and sling motivating tips. After workouts, guests can shower in the private restrooms.
