Curt Tucker and T.J Smith are two brothers with a shared passion for health and fitness, who grew up in Tipp City with dreams of owning a business together. After years of strengthening both their bodies and minds, their dream became a reality as they are the new owners of Anytime Fitness, 978 W. Main St.

With Tucker a 1999 graduate of Tippecanoe High School and Smith from the class of 2009, they are both excited about serving in their hometown. It’s especially meaningful for them to have the opportunity to share their enthusiasm for fitness with the locals. “We are the only 24-hour gym in town and it’s important to provide that to the community. People are busy with work, soccer games and other activities with their kids, so it’s convenient to be able to come at whatever time works for them,” said Tucker.

Members of Anytime Fitness are given a key, which provides access into the locked facility, and can be used 365 days a year. In addition, it can be used to gain entrance into the 3,000 Anytime Fitness locations all across the globe. Anytime Fitness is the world’s largest gym franchise in the world.

Anytime Fitness is a full-service gym with equipment for all types of exercise, with personal training and nutritional counseling also available. In addition to the wide range of services available, Anytime Fitness also provides support from fellow members who are willing to give encouragement when needed. “We are not too big to not have a hometown feel in which everyone is working together,” said Smith.

The facility was recently renovated by its previous owners and Tucker and Smith are near completion on a new expansion to the building. Since taking over in September, the brothers have brought a renewed sense of energy to the complex, along with 70 new members. Plus, from December 5 to 17 will be a canned food drive, in which new members who bring in a canned good will get their first month of membership free. All the canned goods will be donated to the New Path food pantry of Ginghamsburg Church.

Anytime Fitness is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For more information go to anytimefitness.com or call 937-694-9028.
