The Yelm Community Blog host received this letter last week from the owners of Anytime Fitness:
“I have read your blog almost daily to learn about Yelm and what’s going on in the City. As a business owner coming into the Yelm area I read everything I could to learn what was going on and if Yelm is a great
location for our second gym. We decided it was, and took our savings and opened our second gym. Our first gym is in DuPont. You keep us informed about the community and we learned alot from your blog.
Mark and Helen
Owners of Anytime Fitness
I asked Mark & Helen if they would share with you why they chose Yelm to expand and what they have experienced since you have been here?
Here, in their own words, is their response:
“Mark and I looked at the Yelm location a couple years ago and held off on opening the second gym at that time. Then last year we drove out to Yelm to get another feel of the community, we stopped at a coffee shop called “The Blue Bottle” and just thought it was such a friendly and cozy place, then we had dinner at a restaurant called “Arnolds” and fell in love with their dinner menu. We started getting the feeling that Yelm was a great location, because we felt welcome.
We have been opened for 8 weeks now and we have exceeded our expectations. The community is very close, it seems everyone knows everyone when they come into the gym. We have contributed to many events with donations of free memberships and also sponsored a local sports team by paying for their uniforms. Mark and I believe the secret to a family owned business it to be part of the community, support that community anyway you can and they will support you as a business owner.”
