Even for the most athletically inclined, going to the gym can feel like a chore. But you can tell the devotees of Anytime Fitness, the 24-hour fitness franchise that has the top spot on this year's Franchise 500, from their tattoos of the Anytime Fitness logo.
Seriously. No joke. The company reimburses anyone who gets a tattoo and shares their "Anytime Story" with them, of overcoming an obstacle or achieving a goal.
Beyond their smart marketing, CEO Chuck Runyon says Anytime Fitness stands by four main priorities that drive its business and employees: family, health, wealth and safety. Runyon oversees more than 2,400 franchise locations around the world, with a projected 1,500 more coming over the next five years.
