Anderson's Workout Anytime gym recently closed unexpectedly without much explanation or notice to members.
The building has already had the Workout Anytime logos removed and now has a sign in the window directing members to Gold's Gym where they would honor "all memberships and prices for our members at their new location."
Brad Smith, the manager at Gold's Gym, said Workout Anytime has been closed for about a week and a half and already 166 Workout Anytime members have come to Gold's Gym to either get more information or start working out.
"There's a lot of gyms in town, and [Workout Anytime] was kind of one of the smallest ones," Smith said. "The owner wanted to make sure that his members were taken care of and we felt like he reached out to the best gym in Anderson to take care of his members."
Members coming over from Workout Anytime will be able to stay at Gold's for 12 months at the same membership rate. Smith says that right now, the gyms are comparable in terms of hours and square footage, but when Gold's Gym moves into a bigger space with more amenities at the beginning of the year, they'll be getting an upgrade.
Officials at Workout Anytime did not return multiple requests for comment via phone calls and email.
The 24-hour gym was a franchised location of Georgia-based Workout Anytime. The closure in Anderson leaves six other Workout Anytime gyms open in the Upstate.
