With thousands of locations all over North America and a ranking of the sixth-best franchise by Entrepreneur, Anytime Fitness is a fast-growing chain of fitness centers that bills itself as "the club for busy people." The gym is open 24 hours per day, seven days per week, and members get keycard access to work out with the strength training and cardio equipment onsite. Personal TVs on treadmills, ellipticals, and bicycles make working out fun, and there are live Zumba, yoga, Pilates, and hip-hop cardio classes taught by certified instructors in the group fitness studio. Clients can also choose to work out with a video-on-request system, hit the free weights or dumbbells weighing up to 110 pounds, or have a session with a certified personal trainer to amp up their routine. With an emphasis on cleanliness, efficiency, and friendliness, Anytime Fitness helps its members work out when it's most convenient. When not at the gym, Anytime Health online grants members access to perks such as meal and workout plans, activity trackers, and Q&A forums.
Snap Fitness's around-the-clock gyms enable members to work on their physical well-being with a cornucopia of fitness equipment. With 24-hour access, members don't have to let The Man tell them when to help themselves to Snap's strength and cardio equipment, which features built-in TVs and other media diversions. For those who exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere welcomes patrons of all ability levels, unlike schoolyard dodge-ball squads. Members also enjoy nationwide access to all Snap Fitness locations, ideal for working out while traveling.
For a dose of custom advice, patrons can seek out a personal-training session with a certified coach, who helps them assess and address their fitness goals. Clients reap the benefit of individual attention as a personal trainer helps them tackle weight loss, prepare for an arm-wrestling competition, or unveil the mysteries of arcane cable-weight machines.
“Dude’s a genius,” David Molk, now a center for the NFL’s San Diego Chargers, told AnnArbor.com in February 2012. The dude in question is Mike Barwis, the trainer who helped Molk successfully train and bulk up for NFL scouting season after injuring his foot. Barwis has trained professional athletes in not only football, but also other sports too, from ice hockey to cycling. He even served as the head strength coach at the University of Michigan for three years.
At Barwis Methods, he and his team—who have been featured on ESPN and SI.com—teach his high-level training techniques to civilians. Their services range from simple gym memberships and group classes to one-on-one personal-training sessions. Their programs run up to five days per week, and can focus on improving your overall athleticism or getting faster so you can outrun your former self in the event that you invent time travel.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Meditative and soulful, we believe yoga is medicine, addressing all body systems and functions from the inside out.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Yoga is not simply an exercise, but a pathway to greater ease and healing in the body. We simply hold space and guide you to listen to your own inner wisdom.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After surviving cancer, at age 29, our owner wants to bring the healing she found through yoga back to the community in a non-intimidating, welcoming, personalized way and, also, provide balance by addressing the challenges of our fast-paced, stressed out, "push through it" world.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, TITLE Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across more than 20 states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people’s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
