Anytime Fitness has launched a campaign to promote the brand as the most welcoming and inclusive gym for all Australians – no matter their body type, fitness level, ability, or background.
The “Any body, Any time” campaign challenges the stereotypical representation of gym-goers, showcasing a diverse range of people with different needs, highlighting the various reasons they work out, and when they do.
The campaign is further premised on the notion that what healthy looks like is different for everyone, and the fact that many consumers are seeking brands that are making a social impact.
The 24/7 fitness franchise is now aimed at igniting self-confidence, encouraging people to embrace their individuality, and join the Anytime Fitness community.
Performics Mercerbell (PFXMB) led the campaign creative, media strategy, planning, and buying, which encompasses large-scale OOH, TV, digital videos, social media, search and web components.
Anytime Fitness’ chief marketing officer, Caitlin Bancroft, said: “From a brand perspective, this is more than just a marketing campaign. Social inclusion is a major health determinant. It helps everyone feel more connected, valued, and lead a healthier life. It is our mission to lead the fitness industry in advocating inclusivity – by transforming our culture, environment and member experience. We hope to bring this to life in our latest campaign, moving beyond being ‘just a gym’, and making a real impact on the health and wellness culture of Australia.
Chief executive officer at PFXMB, Jason Tonelli, added: “From the brief, all the way through to the final touches on the work, the Anytime Fitness team have demonstrated a genuine commitment to inclusiveness, and bravery when it comes to changing the face of advertising in the fitness industry. As one of our founding full-service clients, I could not be prouder of our partnership with Anytime, and of the PFXMB team for staying true to our purpose of making everyday lives better.
The Anytime Fitness “Any body, Any time” campaign will run from January until June 2022.
