WOODBURY, Minn., Oct. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week, for the 1 billionth time, someone waved a key fob in front of a scanner and then entered an Anytime Fitness gym to work out.  Of course, most Anytime Fitness members go to the gyms to improve their health and fitness.  But, during the 16 years since the world's largest fitness franchise was founded, much more has happened at the gyms than merely cardio exercises and weight training.  Here are a few examples:

  • Anytime Fitness franchisee Radley Westdonated a kidney to one of her gym members.  "My thought process was, 'If I have to go through a little discomfort in order to improve Ryan's quality of life in the long term, that's what's important,'" Radley said.  "I didn't need that extra kidney."
  • Dozens of marriage proposals have taken place at Anytime Fitness gyms, including the special way Zack Underwood proposed to fellow gym member Laura Bevilaqua in Concord Township, OH.
  • After being mocked by Jay Leno on national TV, Susan Bock lost 75 pounds and – for the first time since she was in grade school – ran.
