Through an affiliate, we have developed a card access and security system that allows members of an Anytime Fitness center to have access to any Anytime Fitness center 24 hours a day, automated tanning and vending services, and reciprocal benefits between centers. In some cases, we may allow your center to not be accessible 24 hours a day.
