Self Esteem Brands (SEB) is taking its Anytime Fitness brand to France, following the signing of a master franchisee deal.

“Working with two exceptional, experienced Anytime Fitness club owners, we're proud to know the brand will play an active role in helping the people of France on their personal health and well-being journey.”

Anytime France is owned by Benoit Hanssen and Matt Burgess, who currently operate Anytime Fitness clubs across Italy.
