You’re a successful Anytime Fitness owner and want to open additional Clubs or purchase an
existing franchisee. Or, Franchisors often want or require that you open multiple units within a
specific time frame. The problem for the owner is “proving” to a lender that you can finance the
additional Clubs. Most lenders will not consider financing another location unless your current
location has been in operation for 12 to 18-months.
Lenders focus their concern in three areas:
1. Do the current locations have a positive cash flow?
2. Will the new location stretch management too thin (do you have a solid manager for the new
3. Do you have 15% cash to invest (maybe 10% if it’s your 3rd or more location) in the new location and still have “rainy-day-fund” cash for unknown contingencies?
Financing your new Club may be your greatest concern. We can help you get the long-term
financing you will need .
1. You must have in cash 15% of the total amount required (maybe 10%) for the new location.
We help franchisees get the
money they need to open and
grow their business!
Veterans get a
$500 discount!
2. Your current locations must have solid financial statements preferably prepared by a CPA.
3. At an absolute minimum your present locations must have a positive cash flow equal to or
greater than 130% of your locations current loan and equipment lease payments. Cash
flow % = (profits+amortization+depreciation divided by total loan payments and or
lease payments).
4. Federal tax returns including all schedules will be required for each location and for each
20% or greater owner of the current or new locations.
5. All 20% > owners will need a credit score of 650+ and will provide a personal loan guaranty.

Why We Are Successful
(from International Franchise
Association — IFA)
►Franchise businesses are
projected to grow faster than
the rest of the economy In
We do our own research on the fitness industry to create a business plan description that is
unmatched. We incorporate Anytime Fitness’s business model into the description including footnotes. This gives the lender confidence in both the Anytime Fitness model and the
industry critical elements.
►Total Franchise sales are
over $1 Trillion.
Then you use our copyrighted template to provide us with specific information for your company, location, area, competition, ownership, and management.
We independently research the fitness industry using published information and/or purchased financial information from recognized industry sources to create our copyrighted 3
Year Financial Planning template. Lenders check the franchisee’s financial plan and compare it to; 1) other Anytime Fitness franchisee loans they may have financed, 2) another
similar fitness business they financed, and 4) standard industry sources (the same ones we
use) to determine how “valid” your financial plan really is.
When you use our Financial Planning template we help you spotlight the basics (number of
members, initiation fees, security cards, sales and marketing expenses, etc.) to create your
financial plan. Most business loans are rejected because of poor financial planning or planning that is too optimistic or conservative when compared to the industry.
Working with our Group you will be guided to create a realistic financial plan that meets the
lender’s expectations. Our objective is help you show that your current locations are profitable and that the new location will be profitable and not deplete cash from your new location
thereby jeopardizing your current locations and causing a potential loan loss.
We will help structure the loan that best meets your requirements.

locations. Lenders tell us it is one of the most complete loan packages they receive.

95% of our Clients obtain financing. Why, because we pre-qualify all new clients to determine if we believe we can get them the financing they need. We don’t waste time, money,
and mental energy if we do not believe we can get you a loan. The 5% that do not get financing do one or more of the following: 1) just stop the process, 2) did not have the cash
investment required, 3) have poor credit, or 4) the current locations do not have a positive
cash flow to pay their loans and or leases.
