Workout Anytime Offers Personalized Fitness Experience
Jimmy Mak, Workout Anytime Southwest Area Developer and owner of the Workout Anytime located at 4101 E. Park Blvd., said he chose this location to be the flagship club due to many attributes, “The parking is perfect, building size is perfect, it’s an endcap, great windows allow for natural light, drive-by visibility and there was a need for a fitness option in this area.” Based on demographic research, they knew this would be a great location. Mack adds, “We couldn’t measure the sense of community that exists here. For a gym, it creates a ‘Cheers’ type atmosphere; a place where people want to be.” The grand opening was held July 14.
Mak said that Workout Anytime caters to any fitness level, from novice to regimented athlete. They provide training for members who have never been in a gym, high level athletes and all levels in between. He describes their staff as experienced and friendly. Members of their training staff carry at least one nationally accredited certificate and a four year degree.
They offer a family type atmosphere. Members as young as 12 years old can work out with a guardian. Members 16 years old and older do not need a guardian present.
After becoming members of Workout Anytime, members will meet with a staff member or trainer for a Success Session. This meeting outlines the members’ goals and determines a plan on how to meet those goals.
The club is full of state of the art equipment. Most of the equipment is Matrix strength training. There are over 40 pieces of cardio equipment (treadmills, elliptical, stair climbers and stationary bikes) and over a hundred pieces of strength equipment. There are flat screen televisions and shower and locker facilities. Regarding the cleanliness of the club, Mak said, “It’s immaculate. If the staff is not helping members, they are cleaning. There are sanitary wipes around the club. Being courteous is contagious.”
He knows when they have met members’ expectations when they offer words of appreciation without solicitation. He said members have stated they feel like part of a family when at this club. They are also grateful for the true value for their investment. They offer everything other clubs offer, but in more of a family type atmosphere which is not intimidating. There is 24 hour video security surveillance of the entire club.
Before opening the club in July, they had 1200 members. They currently have 2000 members. Mak said due to the fact they are open 27/7, the gym doesn’t feel busy. “People work out all different times.” He said the amount of members exceeded all expectations.
Mak has been in the fitness industry for 30 years. He said the corporate infrastructure at Workout Anytime is solid. Workout Anytime began in Douglasville, Georgia in 1999. Mak said there are currently 19 franchised locations in the works in this area.
