Chuck Runyon, Dave Mortensen and Jeff Klinger met in the early 1990s while working for a gym in St. Paul, Minnesota. In 1995, they bought and managed the Southview Athletic Club together for seven years. During their detention, the number of members increased from 500 to 4000. They sold the gym in 2001. During their time at the Southview Athletic Club, they worked for a consulting firm that focused on improving underperforming sports clubs in the United States. They developed the idea of Anytime Fitness after studying the expectations of longtime members of large gyms for their fitness clubs.

A global organization, Anytime Fitness is a gym that includes cardio equipment, weight machines, group classes, personal workouts and tanning. Fitness centres offer their members comfortable hours by opening seven days a week and 24 hours a day. To obtain membership in an Anytime fitness club, you must sign a membership contract that documents the details of fees, monthly dues and contractual terms.
The guidelines for early termination of membership should be included in the affiliation agreement. In June 2017, Anytime Fitness was the first U.S. fitness chain to obtain a franchise license in China. The company entered into a franchise master`s contract with Maurice Levine, who had previously opened franchise sites in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines.   Anytime Fitness is a 24-hour club based in Woodbury, Minnesota, USA. The company operates more than 4,000 franchise sites in 50 countries. Fitness facilities are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.   Chuck Runyon, Dave Mortensen and Jeff Klinger founded Anytime Fitness in 2002. Runyon is CEO of the company.   Anytime Fitness was in 2014 the fastest growing gym franchise.  In 2015, Entrepreneur magazine took first place on its global franchise list.
 The franchise`s first site was opened the same year in Cambridge, Minnesota.  They chose the location due to the lack of other fitness clubs in the immediate vicinity and a large enough population to support a fitness club. Shortly thereafter, two other sites were opened by former employees of the Southview Athletic Club in Duluth and Albert Léa, Minnesota. Runyon, Mortensen and Klinger sold 29 franchises before opening their own site in Bemidji, Minnesota.  In 2010, the International Health, Racquet and Sportclub Association Anytime Fitness was the fastest growing fitness club.
