Anytime Fitness is a global gym franchise that really lead the charge with having the gym open 24/7. Anytime has a free weight area, plenty of machines and cardio equipment as well as a functional training and free weight area.

The great thing about Anytime is that they have hundreds of locations across Australia and can be found in even remote locations – it won’t take you long to find one near you. They also have well-kept and clean facilities with good showers and parking.

You should consider joining Anytime if you want a good all-rounder at a reasonable price, without all the bells and whistles.

They do have some group classes, however, they are very limited and aren’t nearly as extensive as those found in more expensive gyms. Most Anytime gyms we have visited have been pretty small in size, which means it can get fairly crowded during peak times.
