Anytime Fitness to open downtown Jan. 1, now selling memberships

Downtown Detroit will soon have its own premiere 24/7 fitness facility at 735 Griswold, and memberships are available now.
Mike Ferlito of Ferlito Construction, also a partner in Bamboo Detroit, recognized the need for Detroit to have a 24/7 fitness facility with all of the influx of business professionals and people moving downtown. Though there are private membership-based gyms like the YMCA and DAC, there are currently no traditional membership-based, 24/7, in-and-out type gyms. So Ferlito reached out to Anytime Fitness and has licensed the concept for both downtown and Midtown.
The downtown location will feature 5,000 square feet of equipment space. They will also have personal trainers on hand, and are currently looking to hire four to six trainers as well as a full-time manager. Interested parties can email here.
They just started selling memberships last Friday and are currently running a special for the first 100 people who sign up, who will receive half-off their down payment and be charged only $32 per month. You must sign up for your membership in person 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Sign-ups are in the same building, 735 Griswold, one door north of the soon-to-be Anytime Fitness entrance. Also, if you successfully refer a friend, you will receive one month of membership for free. Membership to the downtown gym also includes 24/7 access to the 2,200 Anytime Fitness locations worldwide.
The space is currently under construction, but they plan on a Jan. 1 opening date – just in time for those New Year's resolutions.
