Anytime Fitness named to most promising company list

CEO Chuck Runyon

Usually when something is tabbed as "promising" it means it has yet to form a strong foundation and is probably just starting out.

That is certainly not the case for Minnesota-based Anytime Fitness. It recently opened its 2000th club, is in 14 countries, and at the end of 2012 was ranked #6 on Entrepreneur magazine’s prestigious Franchise 500 list.

Apparently Forbes magazine still sees plenty of room for growth for Anytime Fitness as it placed #14 on the America's Most Promising Companies List by the venerable publication. The story will be in the Feb. 11 issue.

According to an Anytime Fitness press release, the rankings "are based on growth (both in sales and hiring), quality of management team and investors, margins, market size and key partnerships."

Gerry Thomas, CFO of Anytime Fitness, said in the release that the company feels it will quadruple in size - 4,000 clubs in the U.S. and 4,000 clubs worldwide - before 2020.
