Anytime Fitness has hit a major milestone with the opening of its 500th club in Australia.

Queensland’s Goodna has been revealed as the 500th club location, and yesterday the gym officially opened its doors to the public.

Franchisee Jordan Cowen is a long standing member of the network and a multiple fitness franchisee, including eight Anytime Fitness clubs across the Brisbane region.

“It’s a great privilege to be a part of the 500th club milestone of Anytime Fitness in Australia. The Anytime Fitness network has supported me through my journey as a franchisee and has provided me with the guidance and education to enable my growth as a businessman, whilst allowing an ideal life/work balance.

“I’m thrilled to bring the benefits of this empowering brand to the local Goodna community,” said Cowen.

Anytime Fitness celebrated its 10 year anniversary in Australia this year, opening an average of one club per week during its time in the country.

Chairman and co-founder at Anytime Fitness Australia, Justin McDonell said, “We’re extremely proud to have succeeded in reaching our 500th Anytime Fitness club in Australia. We entered the market back in 2008 with an aim to make fitness more accessible and convenient for as many Australians as possible.

“Now, 10 years later, we’ve built a network of 500 clubs and 500,300 members nationwide. We’ll continue to work towards a fitter and healthier Australia as our national footprint continues to expand.”

Earlier this week the business unveiled its new look gym design which is being rolled out globally.

Anytime Fitness Australia is owned by Australia’s leading health and fitness franchise management company, Collective Wellness Group, who also includes Orangetheory Fitness and Xtend Barre in its portfolio of brands.
