Does Anytime Fitness have childcare?

Life's a juggling act, right? Between wrangling kiddos, tackling work, and managing the never-ending family chaos, squeezing in time for fitness may feel impossible. But hey, as a busy parent myself, I've found the ultimate game changer: A gym with childcare. Not only do I get to break a sweat, but my little one gets to mingle and play. An absolute win-win for us (as well as my spouse)!

What about Anytime Fitness?

No. There are no Anytime Fitness locations that offer childcare or daycare services.

Parents who are looking for a gym where they can both workout and rely on childcare will have to find another location. Anytime Fitness doesn't offer it.

Do all Anytime Fitness locations not have childcare?

Yes, we're certain. They also make it extremely clear on their website FAQ's:

What is your policy on children? Can I bring my kid when I workout?

Anytime fitness locations do not offer child care or day care.

Parents, you'll need to find another place to workout if this amenity is important to you.

We flipped through all their gym website pages, even checked in on their Facebook pages too. 

Why doesn't Anytime Fitness have childcare?

We're not exactly sure why they don't. But, here are our best thoughts:

  • No space! Anytime Fitness locations are often smaller than other "big box" chain gyms. They use these areas for traditional workout activities: treadmills, stairmasters, free weights and machines. That leaves no room to add a childcare area.
  • Childcare isn't one of their key offerings. What do we mean? Anytime focuses on, you guessed it, a workout at anytime. Their main attraction and selling point is the ability to workout at all hours. That means their staffing, resources, and marketing push for all-night-availability—not childcare.
  • Would make memberships (much) more expensive. From their website
    • "...the average cost of monthly membership is $41 in the United States, and $53 in Canada"

Will they have childcare in the future?

We don't think so. The business plan for Anytime Fitness doesn't line up—at all—for additional amenities, especially childcare. While we could see them add things like massage chairs and saunas to a few clubs, childcare is likely last on their list.

At least a few things need to happen if they were to: 

  • Construction and/or design changes: Most clubs don't have the physical space, so a drastic overhaul would be needed here
  • Staffing and certifications: Child and daycare centers must follow strict state and county rules. Anytime would need to hire and train, plus certify their team members. Unlikely!
  • Pricing and positioning changes: Adding this stuff costs money!  Expect the Anytime team to propose a (rather large) increase in monthly membership dues. Definitely not happening.

So, there it is. In our book, extremely unlikely aka not in the cards for Anytime Fitness to add childcare. 

Wrapping up

Anytime Fitness does not have childcare, at any of their 2000+ locations. We're busy checking every single one of their locations, and we're sure that it's not a standard offering.

Will Anytime Fitness add childcare in the future? Probably not.
