Working out is about to get a lot easier. No more excuses about an inconvenient gym location or limited hours. Anytime Fitness is coming to Grimes.

Anytime Fitness franchisees Kirk Jordison and Joe Nguyen confimed that they have signed a lease for a 5,000 square-foot space and plans to build a gym in a new commercial strip center located next to the Mercy Clinic in Grimes. Construction will start immediately and be performed by Landmark Construction Services. The target date for the club’s grand opening is this coming January.

“What differentiates Anytime Fitness from other clubs is the focus we put on our members and helping members get the results that they’re seeking,” said Nguyen. “Our gym will be small enough that we can provide personalized attention for all of our members. Whether weight-loss is your goal, or increased strength or improved balanced and flexibility – or a combination – we’re committed to helping you achieve those goals.”

The gyms are staffed roughly 8-10 hours a day, but members can access the club whenever they like – even during unstaffed hours – using a computerized key-fob system.

“We make it easy for our members to exercise whenever and however they like,” said Nguyen. “We’ll have Coaches 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 Group Training sessions available for members in the early morning and peak evening times. Our Group Training workouts, led by our coaches, will increase your effectiveness by providing accountability, and you’ll find yourself pushing harder in an energy-filled atmosphere.”

Membership at one Anytime Fitness club gives members access to nearly 4,000 clubs worldwide at no extra charge.

The layout of every Anytime Fitness club is designed for quick and effective exercise. At the new club in Grimes, members will have full use of top-quality equipment and amenities, including:

• Circuit and resistance training machines

• Free weights

• Cardio equipment, including treadmills, elliptical machines, and stationary bikes

• Group training sessions

• Private bathrooms, changing rooms and showers

Prior to opening, Anytime Fitness will be offering charter memberships specials starting in early November. Find out all the updates by going to their Facebook page Anytime Fitness Grimes or their website at
