Anytime Fitness is staffed eight hours a day Mnday-Friday and four hours on Saturday, but members have 24/7 access using a computerized key-fob system.   The gym is heavily monitored by security cameras at all times and parking is well–lit for night access.  “We are very excited to bring Anytime Fitness to St. John Parish,” said Nick Riley, Owner. “We are the largest and fastest growing fitness franchise in the world and our club features a large variety of some of the best equipment on the market along with enough space and options to do a variety of different types of workout.”

Each new member receives a free personal fitness orientation including an explanation and demonstration of basic exercise principles by one of the two trainers on staff. Membership at one Anytime Fitness club provides access to over 3,000 other clubs at no extra charge. Tanning is also available.  “We also pride ourselves on providing an extremely clean, safe and friendly environment that is always inviting and not intimidating,” Riley added.
