Summer months are definitely harder to squeeze in a workout, but we’re doing our best to continue to bring you new gyms to check out in our city. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this quiet little gym, but Anytime Fitness Red Deer was a pleasant surprise and somewhere I would definitely visit again.
About Anytime Fitness Red Deer
Anytime Fitness is a great little 24-hour gym located on Red Deer’s South End. It’s tucked in beside a convenience store and large spa, easy to miss, but definitely worth putting on your radar.
It’s clean, well maintained, with lots of equipment for your workout needs but on top of that, it’s a supportive community where all fitness levels are welcome. Unlike some 24-hour gyms, Anytime Fitness offers members a free consultation personalized Get Started plan when they join to help kick start your fitness journey and they also have personal trainers and group fitness classes to elevate your workout regimen.
Stocked with treadmills, ellipticals, stair climbers, spin bikes and rowing machines, there’s no excuse to skip your cardio. There are lots of free weights, squat racks, and plates for your strength training needs. And then they have a heavy bag, TRX, battle ropes, and kettlebells to get your functional training on On top of that, this location offers personal training, small group training, specialized classes and virtual fitness classes. The virtual fitness/group training room is always available to work out in if there are no classes happening in there as well, giving you even more space to do your thing.
You can ensure you’re always safe working out after staffed hours with 24-hour security, and emergency phones if you ever end up feeling unsafe. There are private bathrooms and showers plus tanning beds and towel services available too. If you’re in need of some supplements, there is a small selection for retail purchases as well.
You really can’t ask for much else!
$49/month + one-time activation fee of $49 which includes your key fob and other starting fees.
If you’re interested in checking Anytime Fitness out, you can get a 7-day trial free here.
They currently have a summer promotion where you don’t pay any membership fees until September, so if you’re looking to join a gym and save a couple bucks over the summer, this might be your deal!
What I Loved Most
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this gym. It’s small and quiet and has everything you need to get in a good workout. It wasn’t over-crowded (but also not totally deserted), with enough room to do your thing. I especially loved that they had rowers because rowing has got to be one of my favourite things and I’m sure if I had a membership here, I’d be rowing on the daily.
