TOWN 'N COUNTRY — Anytime Fitness' expanding growth is coming to Town 'N Country.

The gym offers its members 24 hour access, seven days a week, at more than 3,000 locations worldwide.

In late June, a new Tampa location will open on W Hillsborough Avenue, providing members with another convenient workout facility.

"It's a really great gym," said Baron Forkush, owner and club manager. "It's for everybody."

Anytime Fitness offers state-of-the-art equipment and services to meet everyone's needs.

The new location has cardio machines such as treadmills and stair climbers, as well as free weights and strength equipment.

Personal training and small group training is available from Mike Ortiz, a certified personal trainer and member experience manager.

Forkush is offering specials for new members, such as the founding member special for the first 100 people who join.

The first month is free with a sign up fee of just $1. There is a $49 security activation fee which includes the key fob access to all of the Anytime Fitness locations.

"One of the main draws for Anytime Fitness is the convenience of it, the 24/7 easy access," Forkush said. "It's not overcrowded."

The facility also offers free trials.

Anytime Fitness is located at 8424 W Hillsborough Ave. For more information, call 813-886-9747, or visit
