The officially welcomed Anytime Fitness to its Watson location Thursday. The ribbon cutting was celebrated by members of the Chamber and Anytime Fitness owners.
Back in October, the Board of Aldermen heard a lengthly one hour and 20 minute discussion regarding the 24-hour business at 343 Watson Plaza. Discussion arose over the saftey of an unstaffed fitness facility during overnight hours.
The representatives of Anytime Fitness argued that this patented formula for the facility has worked for hundreds of franchises across the nation and eventually retained the rights to open their business.
