Anytime Fitness opening on Monroe Road in May

Southeast Charlotte is adding their most convenient workout facility, the uber popular 24-hour fitness club Anytime Fitness. No more excuses about inconvenient gym locations or limited hours, now that the gym will be opening in Galleria Village shopping center between Boardwalk Billy’s and Lucas Jui Jitsu.

Galleria Village has been filling up recently, with a European deli and catering company to go along with the new gym. We talked to franchisee Mike and Sharon Fields, who are opening the almost 5,000 square-foot workout space.

“We selected our location based the upswing in growth along Monroe Rd corridor” said Fields.

The gyms are staffed roughly 9 hours a day, but members can access the club whenever they like – even during unstaffed hours – using a computerized key-fob system. The gym will include circuit and resistance training machines, free waits, cardio equipment, small group exercise classes, small group training, personal training, and massage therapy packages.

“We make it easy for our members to exercise whenever and however they like,” said Fields. “We’ll have personal trainers available to help you learn how to use all of the equipment and to develop an individualized workout plan, if you like. We’ll also have massage therapy and nutrition classes that allows members to add to their healthy lifestyle. We are all about helping people overcome the barriers to healthier lives.”

We have some rendering that are pretty close to what the new gym will look like.

The tentative soft launch is planned for May 1, with a full launch coming sometime this summer. Prior to opening, Anytime Fitness Sardis Rd in Galleria Village is offering a free month and 30 min massage. Membership information is available by calling 980-800- 2347 or by emailing Charlottenc5@anytimefitness.com.
