Are you like me? Writing, reading or doing laundry at 1a.m.? Why not work out??!? Anytime Fitness is awesome because whether it’s 1a.m. or 1p.m.- the gym is open! I started working out at the Anytime Fitness in Lemont, IL last month and let’s just say it’s taught me how to be a healthier person and truly has changed my life! You walk into an extremely inviting gym where everyone is kind and educated on all the machines! I was greeted by one of the managers Nikki and well, she’s absolutely fantastic! Nikki has an abundance of fitness knowledge with an upbeat personality! She doesn’t come across judgmental, like I have experienced at other gyms. They truly care about their members and go the extra mile.
They have monthly challenges to keep you motivated, as well as keeping it fun. Anytime in Lemont even has little perks here and there, like providing cucumber water on a Tuesday or fresh water infused with basil and strawberries. Who doesn’t love that? The gym is never over crowded and I have never had a problem getting a machine whether it’s 5p.m. or 1a.m.
Now, let’s talk about what’s included in your membership. SO MUCH! You get a complimentary fitness evaluation from a certified personal trainer. They have a tanning booth that you can use- unlimited and included in your membership. I think it’s great especially for people with seasonal depression. I am not a huge fan of tanning booths, but it’s nice for a 2 minute session and some vitamin D when you have seasonal depression. One of my favorite aspects of Anytime is the massage room. It’s a water massage machine and it feels oh so good after working out on your muscles… YUP- It’s also included in your membership.
And last, but not least you get the virtual studio included in your membership! It’s a fully automated system and you can do yoga, kickboxing and more with a virtual instructor. Oh and I forgot to mention they also have live classes included in your membership. Does it get better than that? Probably not. I tried Zumba for the first time at Anytime Fitness and though I am not a great dancer, it was fun! If I had to say something negative about anytime (and I don’t want to), I would say the only thing they are lacking is a pool. That personally isn’t important to me and I feel that you get so much for your money here, so truthfully- It’s my new favorite gym for sure!
Now, let’s talk about my first 30 days! My first full 30 days of truly working out at Anytime, I lost 6.5 pounds and I am eating 100% better. Forget the weight, I truly feel so much better and I can’t wait to see where my goals are at in 6 months! I will definitely keep everyone posted and you can see my weekly posts about Anytime Fitness on my Instagram page as well! Do you want to try out Anytime Fitness for FREE? Yup, I said FREE!
