The first franchise location opened in Cambridge, Minnesota later that year. They chose the site because of the lack of other fitness clubs in the immediate area and a population large enough to support a fitness club. Shortly after, two more locations were opened by former Southview Athletic Club employees in Duluth and Albert Lea, Minnesota. Runyon, Mortensen and Klinger sold 29 franchises before they opened their own corporate-owned location in Bemidji, Minnesota.
In 2010, the International Health, Racquet, and Sportsclub Association named Anytime Fitness the fastest growing fitness club. Franchise Chatter titled Anytime Fitness as the franchise with the best business model in 2011. The Star Tribune called Anytime Fitness one of Minnesota's top workplaces in 2011, 2012, and 2013. The company ranked first in Minnesota Business Magazine's best company to work for in 2012 and 2013. Forbes ranked the company 14th as America's most promising companies. In 2014, Entrepreneur Magazine ranked Anytime Fitness number one on their franchise 500 list. In 2015 and 2016, Anytime Fitness was ranked first on the publication's top global franchises list.

Not too bad for the price. I am a black card member and I enjoy the 30 minutes work out section because it allows me to go in and out of the gym without wasting time waiting on a machine.... however this location supposedly does not give out the free T-shirt and towel like it stated in my confirmation email when I first signed up.... so that's why I gave it a 4 star instead of 5...
At my home Planet Fitness, I have had no issues. However coming here, I experienced feeling uncomfortable. I just started to use a machine and someone asks me if I am using it...of course I am?! He then proceeds to stand within 2 feet of the machine with his arms crossed, legs apart, staring. Unwilling to be "gymtimidated" (though maybe in the past I would have been intimidated to stop), I finished my 3 sets. The issue with this is that I brought this up to the staff and the staff looked at me with annoyance, denied that was "gymtimidation," and turned away to ignore me. The phone then rang and he looked away toward the ceiling averting my gaze.

I was diagnosed with autism when I was 7 years old and I have been bullied badly, even out in public. So when I got my membership in March of 2013 I was scared of getting bullied. Been going since then and NOT ONCE have I gotten picked on. The staff doesn’t care. They watch out for me. They greet me with my first name. ‘Hi Jacob, how are you?’ I feel safe and I feel independent. I put on muscle. I LOVE Planet Fitness.
PF Alhambra is a tidy, affordable gym with neat lockers, huge parking lot, free pizza and tootsie roll. LoL. Staff (Mark and co.) are competent, friendly and professional. They should be given a raise! Because they are always dependable. PF is without flaws, the things I abhor is when the machines are out of service, artic blasting A/C on the far back end and the crowded peak hours (M-W; 6pm), however, not as terrible compared to PF Mid-town Olympic blvd branch.The gym goers are friendly, nice and respectful. Similarly, there are good looking fit women in this gym which kinda motivating. Overall, I highly recommend this gym. I can suggest they add more new machines or install a wall pull up bars like most gym do. I would like to make it happen.
