Ridge Fitness LLC has been purchased by Anytime Fitness, LLC, a 24-hour franchised fitness center company based in Minnesota.
Ridge Fitness owner Sue Dowling describes Anytime Fitness as “a quality fitness club franchise that takes pride in their club operation and the programs they offer. They share a similar business philosophy by offering first-rate personal training, group exercise and customer service. They also believe in making a positive impact in their community.”
In a letter on the Ridge Fitness website Sue Dowling says she will be continuing on with Anytime Fitness during the transition and for the long term. Currently, Sue is the second owner of Ridge Fitness. The gym’s original name was Snoqualmie Ridge Athletic Club.
According to the letter, “Most…favorite classes and programs will be unchanged and many of our staff will have the opportunity to continue and even enhance their careers in the fitness industry.”
In a recent magazine article, Anytime Fitness is described as, “Founded in 2002…the fastest-growing fitness club franchise in the world, with nearly 1,900 clubs in all 50 states. Open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, Anytime Fitness prides itself on providing its members with convenient and affordable fitness options in friendly, well-maintained facilities which feature top-quality exercise equipment.”
