This Anytime Fitness is a pleasant surprise in terms of fitness places. Although a bit more costly than the mega mart places that pack you in, this site is not overly crowded, equipment is *never* broken and it's full of real people just trying to get some exercise. I'm glad it's not cheaper in a way because its (edited to remove inadvertent “not”) friendly and full of long term users. Great ownership/management sets this one apart from other sites even within Anytime Fitness. Two individual changing rooms with showers plus a third bathroom is so nice. No more stinky dirty locker shared locker rooms! Equipment is varied and everything you'd expect, plus a walled off room for fitness classes (most are on demand DVD type classes). I am disappointed I didn't join sooner.

One of the few 24 hour gyms and is located very conveniently for me. The equipment could be in better shape, and they could have better machines. If equipment breaks it tends to stay broken for a while; for example, a cable was frayed on one of the cable and pulley machines and it stayed that way for about 2 weeks.

Excellent ! The facility is always clean, the machines are always in good working order, and when not, repairs are quickly made. The owner and his staff are friendly, helpful and responsive to the needs of their patrons. I have been to Anytime Fitness facilities in five states and without doubt, or hesitation, I can say this gym, in the Food Lion plaza off of Highway 98 in Durham N C, is the most comfortable.

As a former strength and conditioning coach with 20+ years of experience I find this place to be an excellent facility to help you to meet all of your fitness/health goals. If you are a strength athlete or a body builder you can also meet all of your goals here as well. The staff members are all excellent. David has a wonderful attitude and a very good knowledge base on exercise science. Mohammed who is the office manager at Anytime Fitness is easy to communicate with and will do whatever it takes to help you. I am sure that the new, more hands on owners will also make positive changes and additions as time goes on to make your experience here an excellent one.

I cancelled my membership back in March because the facility was poorly maintained. I was told that I would have to ride out my contract and they would terminate it before it started the month to month membership. I noticed that membership fees were still being taken out over 6 months later. After finally being able to get in contact with the manager he told me he would get the membership fees refunded immedately. I have since had two membership fees and the annual maintenance fee taken out of my account. The manager is very difficult to get a hold of.
Update: the new owner did reach out to me directly and I finally got my refund. I hope that the new ownership continues to make improvements for the better.

This AnyTime fitness location changed my life! I’ve been to other locations and the equipment, staff, and atmosphere are just not the same.
All the equipment is very new and properly maintained. In the cold months I like to ride the spin bikes inside. When one of the spin bike seats was broken, they thanked me for telling them and replaced it immediately.
I took a free personal training session when I enrolled. The trainer didn’t push me to buy some expensive training package. He just let me know they were there to help and I was welcome to look into a training package in the future.
I’ve never felt anyone judging or looking at me because I’m not in shape. Seriously, it’s just normal people trying to get healthy! The gym is never too crowed and I haven’t had to wait for a machine yet.

This is the the gym to join! The owner has made some much needed changes with more to come. One of the upgrades included the fitness room. No, it wasn't that appealing maybe 6 months ago but now it has a fresh new look (new dumbells, new kettlebells, added TV's and carpet). Also there are morning and evening classes. Then it's located next to Food Lion which is convenient for quick shopping right after a good workout. Lastly, the one thing that I like more than anything is there are hardly ever any crowds.
Personally, I recommend going to this gym!!

This facility has everything you need! Its the perfect size where it’s not so overwhelmingly huge and also not too crowded. The hours are super convenient especially for a nurse who works crazy inconsistent hours. I’ve been seeing Kyle for personal training for the last 4 weeks and I’ve already seen so much progress in my strength, endurance, and even my physique. And you can tell he loves what he does! Highly recommend this place and Kyle for sure!

I love having a full-blown, 24-hour fitness center 5 minutes from home! There is a good variety of equipment available for all fitness ranges. The center was recently renovated and is very visually appealing. Newest enhancement is the addition of fitness classes several times a week, in addition to the Silver Sneakers classes they have had for some time. I have been using a personal trainer, Carlos, twice a week, and I'm very pleased with the variety and level of difficulty of the activities he gives me to do. He's able to modify the exercises to target specific problem areas and give me a challenging workout.

Super convenient location, parking always available. Gym is always clean. It’s on the smaller size, but I never felt like it lacks in equipment or space.
Shout out to personal trainer - Carlos he knows how to put you through a workout with plenty of variety!

We have enjoyed going here more than we could imagine! Everything is clean and the staff is wonderful!! I LOVE my personal trainer, Kyle! I had knee replacement surgery in Sept 2019 and he has helped me get through this by getting fit!!
