Anytime Fitness Is On The Move

“Two years ago, Anytime Fitness franchise owner David Galloway had his sights set on the Avenues at Westchase. But the high rent and the lack of space forced him to look elsewhere for a place to open his business. Now, Galloway is back in Westchase, where he wanted to be all along. ‘We did a lot of research,’ Galloway said. ‘We did the demographics. There's about 10,000 residents in a 1-mile radius.’ ‘And we (wanted) to put our gym in the middle of our competition, Snap Fitness, the YMCA and Lifestyle,’ he added. Originally based in Citrus Park in August 2007, the health club outgrew its facilities in little more than a year and a half. It currently occupies a smaller space inside the Avenues shopping center until the club moves into its permanent facility at 9602 W Linebaugh Ave. on Wednesday.
