Could $1 really change your life?

With the right support and coaching, the answer is absolutely, positively “yes.”

Cindy Keen is living proof that $1 dollar can change your life. In just two years, Keen lost 258 pounds and, last year alone, she ran more than two dozen 5K races.

Dave Mathis is another example. Born with a rare genetic disorder which prevented him from walking until he was seven years old, Mathis is now competing in all sorts of athletic events while inspiring others. The same is true of Leslie Hoffman. Once depressed and significantly overweight, Hoffman recently lost nearly 200 pounds – and she’s now loving life and enjoying time with her family.

What do they all have in common? They each took a courageous first step and sought help from a supportive local gym where they learned how to take control of their lives.

“Taking that first step is the hardest part,” said Rachelle Fletcher, owner of the Anytime Fitness gym in Chadds Ford. “After that, it gets a whole lot easier. The key to making big changes is recognizing and appreciating little victories. Dozens of members of our gym have dramatically improved the quality of their lives – one day at a time. Getting started can be scary. But, with the right type of coaching and support, anything is possible.”


To help new members get started on the right track, Anytime Fitness is offering a “Join for $1” special deal, January 11-15. Additionally, every new member will receive a free fitness consultation and a personalized 30-day “Get Started” fitness plan. We hope that this offer will help us spread the word about the benefits of our gym and how we differ from the big box competitors.

As someone who used to work out at a big box gym that wasn’t meeting his needs, JJ Kaczenski made the switch to Anytime Fitness of Chadds Ford a little over a year ago. “I switched because my other gym was very overcrowded and the weight section was extremely small with dumb bells that only went up to sixty pounds. At Anytime Fitness I’m able to use the free weight bar bells so that I can get a true weight lifting work out. Plus they have state of the art cardio equipment with built in television screens which is a nice distraction during your workout. Everyone here is ready to work out and they rotate the equipment well so I never have to wait to use a piece of equipment,” said Kaczenski.

One dollar bill at a time, all of the money collected during Anytime Fitness “Join for $1” campaign will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Existing members of the club will also have the opportunity to contribute.

“Choosing St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as our charity for this campaign was a unanimous decision between me and our staff. Helping sick children during the holiday season seemed like the best use of the funds and we are excited to be working for such a great cause,” said Fletcher.

Anytime Fitness, the world’s fastest-growing fitness club franchise, recently opened its 3,000th gym and now serves nearly 3,000,000 members in more than 20 countries on five continents.

“Life is a journey,” said Fletcher. “Where you go and what you do is up to you. But, if you’d like to get started on a new path, our gym is a great place to get started. A year from now, you’ll be glad you did.”
