Anytime Fitness at 152 Chase Avenue in Waterbury, the region's only 24/7 health club, in the Stop ‘n Shop/Target retail shopping Plaza, will host a Grand Re-Opening event next Tuesday, November 12, 1:00 to 4:00 PM with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1:00 PM.
In addition to an extensive offering of exercise and physical fitness training equipment, Anytime Fitness offers classes ranging from Bootcamps, Silver Sneakers, and Zumba to progressive Team Training Programs including HIIT training, motion/flexibility, and strength/endurance training. Anytime Fitness, the Greater Waterbury region’s only gym that is open 24 hours 365 days each year, offers access to 2,500+ locations nationwide, health insurance plan discounts from participating programs, wellness programs, private restrooms, and showers, plus 24-hour security.
The new owner of Anytime Fitness on Chase Avenue, Bryan Joyce, 33, of Southington, purchased the gym following 10 years of working with various fitness industry companies plus launching his own boutique fitness club. “When I learned the Waterbury club was for sale,” commented Joyce, “I could see the gym’s potential, so I purchased it and now I’d like to invite everyone to come in for a special Grand Re-Opening celebration.”
Joyce explained that “When I purchased the club in April of this year it was struggling since its opening in May of 2016, and it was on the verge of closing. In less than six months since my purchase, I have turned it around to the point of adding nearly 200 new members.” As the owner, Joyce serves in the capacities of management, administration, and marketing.
With more than ten years of focusing on his personal fitness, plus extensive managerial experience with several nationally-known fitness industry companies including Planet Fitness, the YMCA, Anytime Fitness, LA Fitness, WorkOut World, and building his own fitness club, Joyce is well qualified to make the Waterbury Anytime Fitness gym an award-winning success.
All Anytime Fitness gyms offer personal training and classes, plus the right tools to keep each member on their personal fitness track when they are unable to get into one of the franchise gyms world-wide. “A special bonus of membership,” elaborated Joyce, “is that when individuals join they are truly joining an internationally-supportive community of like-minded people who are here to give them as much encouragement and direction as they may need.
“The Waterbury Anytime Fitness gym is the only gym within the region that is open to members 24 hours every day. The gym is located in a well-lit shopping plaza with parking ‘close to gym entrance door’ and a tinted all-glass front that looks out onto the parking lot area. It’s a safe location to come to at any time of day or night,” Joyce commented.
After living his early childhood in Waterbury, at age 7 Joyce’s family moved to Thomaston where he lived until his sophomore year of high school when his family moved to Southington. “I’ve been living in Southington since 2001 and I have many cousins who grew up in Waterbury and continue to live in Waterbury.”
The single father of an ‘amazing’ 8-year-old son, Joyce is an active member in the Waterbury Regional Chamber including a participant in the Young Professionals of the Waterbury Region (YPOWR) division, the Health Care Council, plus a bi-weekly Business Connections Group (BCG).
The November 12th Grand Re-Opening will feature tours of the gym, sample classes, demonstrations of the various fitness machines and equipment, refreshments, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with leading members of the Waterbury community at 1:00 PM.
