Some people who join gyms can't make it during the day and are put off by the crowds at night.
Wes Bradshaw, owner and manager of Anytime Fitness in Sunnyside, is hoping to alleviate those concerns by offering fitness 24 hours a day.
"There is a market in Sunnyside for something like this," Bradshaw said.
He said Sunnyside is a traveling town, with a lot of residents commuting outside the area for work. Because of this most some people have odd hours. A 24-hour fitness facility would benefit those people, Bradshaw said.
The 4,200 sq. ft. building located at 2680 Yakima Valley Highway, suite E, will open Saturday, Nov. 1. Members of Anytime Fitness will be able to access the facility by using a key card.
Bradshaw, who owns another Anytime Fitness branch in Yakima, said there are 1,400 clubs nationwide with 50 of them in Washington state. A membership at the Sunnyside facility will enable entry into all 1,400 clubs nationwide.
Bradshaw said memberships are being sold now at Anytime Fitness from 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. If people sign up in the month of October the $50 joining fee will be waived and the first month's membership will be free.
The cost to join the club is $35 a month for a single membership, $65 for a couple's membership and $25 for each additional member of the family.
An 18-month contract is required, however, Bradshaw said the contract can be breached in case of injury or if the member moves from the area. Otherwise it will cost $150 to get out of the contract.
Tanning will also be available at Sunnyside's newest gym. Bradshaw said unlimited tanning will be available for $15 a month.
Cleanliness is big at Anytime Fitness, Bradshaw promised. Private lockers and showers will also be available.
All equipment is new and Bradshaw said there are 15" high-definition televisions built in to each piece of cardio equipment.
Besides cardio equipment, there will be free weights and select drive machines available to members.
