You don’t have to have weight problems to exercise. There are no qualifications for working out. Everybody has the right to be fit. Everybody should be given the chance to be fit any time and anywhere they want to.

In my younger years, my main form of exercises were dancing and swimming. I never really thought of going to the gym and signing for a membership. In 2009, after going through a depressing phase in my life, I decided to take working out seriously.

The first thing I did was ask for advice from my sister Connie, who is a licensed fitness professional. One of the things she told me was to sign up with a gym. At that time, though, there were very few of them here in Cagayan de Oro. So I decided to do my workouts at home.

I had to wake up at six every morning just so I could exercise. And when I finally started going to the gym, I found myself wishing that it closed late at night and opened on Sundays (the one gym that did just closed down). Most of the gyms here have marked Sundays as rest days. Likewise, a lot of them lock up by 9pm.

But come November, everything will change. Next month, anyone who wants to workout anytime can do so because Anytime Fitness will be opening at SM CDO Downtown Premier.

Anytime is the Best Time to Workout

Anytime Fitness, the world’s largest gym franchise with more than 3500 clubs worldwide, is recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as the number 1 Top Global Franchise for 2015 and 2016. It’s the most convenient way of working out because it gives its members 24/7 access to all the clubs around the world.

Yes, Anytime Fitness is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.  So you get to choose when you want to workout – early in the morning, in the afternoon, late at night, or maybe just a little after midnight. You have the privilege of working out on your own time and terms.

Additionally, AF members can workout wherever they are as there are thousands of clubs in the country and the world. Whether you are in Davao, Cebu, or anywhere in Metro Manila, there’s an Anytime Fitness club near you. You can also access clubs in different parts of the world, including the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and many other countries.

At Anytime Fitness, the best time to workout is anytime.

5 Reasons You Need to Sign Up With Anytime Fitness CDO

When you decide to sign up with Anytime Fitness Cagayan de Oro, you’ll enjoy tons of benefits as a founding member.

  1. You’ll receive free consultation and assessment along with a beginner’s program.

This is especially helpful for first-time gym goers who might feel a little lost and confused. With the help of AF’s licensed coaches, a special program will be drawn up for you. Of course, this will come after the consultation and assessment sessions.

These services are given for FREE if you sign up before the club opens in November.

  1. As a founding member, you don’t have to pay a joining fee.

If you enroll now, you won’t have to worry about joining fees.  Additionally, you’ll also get to enjoy discounted life-time rates (which are not subject to increase). As such, AF removes the burden that many gym goers complain about – numerous (and hidden) fees that pile up month after month.

When I enrolled a few weeks ago, I paid only Php2500. My discounted monthly fee is only Php1900. It’s a good investment considering I get 24/7 access to the gym and its world-class facilities and services.

The money that you spend for your daily caffeine fix is generally more than what you’ll spend for your monthly fees.

So, are you ready to take on the challenge now?

Like what I said, you don’t have to be anything just so you can workout. Don’t let people’s misconceptions dampen your spirits. Your decisions should not be dependent on them. Your fitness goals are not dependent on a weight or health issue. They are your goals, so everything depends on you. If you want a healthier and fit lifestyle, start the change now. Begin your journey by joining Anytime Fitness, so you can work on your fitness goals anytime and anywhere you want.
