I’ve been working out (on and off) since 2009 but I only started going to the gym around four years ago. I joined Zumba, aero dance, and Step Aerobics classes in the past but never really considered going to the gym on a regular basis.

Circa 2012, back when I had nothing to do but workout at home.

Despite the fact that I wanted so much to follow my workout goals, I didn’t have the courage to enrol in a gym in the early years of my fitness journey. I was too shy to go inside one. I wasn’t comfortable with the thought that I’d have to do my yoga routine with a lot of people surrounding me. I was also afraid that people would laugh at me because I didn’t know how to operate the treadmill or the elliptical machine (I knew how to, of course!). I had a lot of what ifs and worst case scenarios.

But after I tried going to one and really worked out, I felt completely light and relaxed. I felt comfortable even if a lot of people were in the gym, too. I found out that people were there to workout, not to stare at you until you make a mistake.

This is one of the reasons why I decided to sign up with Anytime Fitness, the only 24/7 gym here in Cagayan de Oro.

AF is a class all its own because its members are well taken care of. The first time you walk into the gym, you’ll be welcomed by a coach who’ll help you come up with a workout program that’s perfect for your needs.

When you’re working out, the AF coaches are always ready to assist you. So if there’s anything you’re not familiar with (a machine or equipment), you won’t need to freak out because someone will be beside you in a matter of minutes (or seconds)!

At Anytime Fitness, you won’t feel intimidated or out of place. And no one will mind if you’re struggling to hold your balance or if you can’t run for five minutes straight on the treadmill. Everyone at AF (including its members) values respect. And they’re all dedicated to their fitness goals just like you are. So they don’t waste their energy making others feel unwelcome and uncomfortable. Anytime Fitness is for anyone who wants to live a better, healthier, and more fit life.

Aside from comfort, Anytime Fitness also offers convenience. Unlike most gyms, it operates 24 hours, seven days a week. As such, it is the most convenient option for anyone who has always had problems with gyms that close at 9pm, as well as those that do not open on Sundays.

So at Anytime Fitness, you can work out anytime….and anywhere you are. Yes, anywhere – because AF has gyms all over the Philippines and the world. All you need to have with you is your key fob.

I find this very convenient because I don’t have to worry about paying daily gym rates just to workout. With AF, I can workout anytime I want to whenever I’m in Metro Manila or Davao.

And I don’t have to worry about bringing bulky gym stuff because you’ll find everything there at the gym. As previously mentioned, AF has state-of-the-art gym equipment – treadmills, elliptical trainers, kettlebells, weights, plyo soft boxes and all the other items you need for a good workout.

These equipment are all of the highest quality – because fitness should not be compromised. They’re actually one of the reasons why AF had to push back its opening date. They just couldn’t open the gym without all their top of the line equipment.


So to sum up everything that Anytime Fitness is, we need only three words: convenient, comfortable, and high quality. Just the kind of fitness partner I need.

Kettlebell. A personal favorite.
