    Hey RJers. I'm exploring opening an Anytime Fitness franchise in the Chicago area. Any feedback/advice from current or former AF members?

    I love my Anytime Fitness gym in Duluth.

    Franchise fee is $32,500 and then $549 a month. Lots of other costs, too. They provide a very detailed (and helpful) financial disclosure document.

    Pretty interesting they take a flat fee instead of % of sales/memberships. I couldn't find any info on their website, but do they allow you to choose your location?

    Yes, so long as there isn't another one close by.

    Are you planning on opening it right in the city of Chicago or in one of its suburbsicon_question.gif
