New Brand Partnership
ANYTIME FITNESS | SPECIAL OLYMPICS
Anytime Fitness is pleased to announce a global partnership with Special Olympics. Anytime Fitness will encourage the owners and staff members at nearly 5,000 gyms to voluntarily support Special Olympic athletes worldwide.
Anytime Fitness and Special Olympics share a common belief that exercise can be beneficial, in all sorts of ways, to virtually anyone. Regardless of fitness level, ability or location, Anytime Fitness and Special Olympics are inclusive organizations that open their doors to others, meeting people wherever they are along their fitness journey, helping them get to a healthier place – Anytime, Anywhere, Anyone.
We will be inviting Special Olympics athletes to train in Anytime Fitness gyms. We will encourage individuals with and without intellectual disabilities to participate together in “Unified” group training sessions at Anytime Fitness Gyms.
We will sponsor and coach our local teams. We will host hydration, flexing, and stretching stations at Special Olympics events.
We will organize fundraisers inside the club and in the community for Special Olympics athletes and teams.
We want to be our local team’s biggest fans by coordinating cheer squads for local athletes and teams.
