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 Skokie, IL.  


Anytime Fitness franchisee Stephanie and Tom Kalaczynski confirmed that they have signed a lease for a 4,173 square-foot space and plans to build a gym in the Village Crossing. Construction will start immediately and the target date for the club’s grand opening is late Spring 2014. 


“What differentiates Anytime Fitness from other clubs is our focus on helping members get the results that they’re seeking,” said Tom Kalaczynski.  “We’re 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.”


Nationwide, the average Anytime Fitness club has about 800 members.  The gyms are staffed roughly 8 hours a day, but members can access the club whenever the 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 Mr. Kalaczynski.  “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 a ‘Fitness on Request’ system that allows members to choose from dozens of video classes whenever it’s most convenient for them.”


Membership at one Anytime Fitness club gives members access to 2,400 clubs worldwide as well as access to www.AnytimeHealth.com, the most comprehensive online wellness support system available.


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