Meet Nick Cantu of Anytime Fitness Chino Hills

Today we’d like to introduce you to Nick Cantu.

Nick, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’ve been involved with Anytime Fitness since 2016. I had no intentions of ever becoming a franchisee as I own another fruitful business that was brought in to run point on marketing for this specific franchise. After getting to know my current business partner and his staff I saw his drive to create a successful gym I was sold. I knew that collectively our efforts together could create something great and that has held true to date.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The transition phase was a little bumpy. Being just over half the age of my business partner has made for some head butting of the new vs old school ways of business. We haven’t always seen eye to eye about everything but it helps keep things balanced here at the gym as certain people don’t want change and others were hungry for it. We have a great dynamic together.

Please tell us about Anytime Fitness Chino Hills.
We are an independent franchise of Anytime Fitness. We are unique in the sense that we offer a truly 24/7/365 experience for our members. I’ve always felt the goal of this gym is to provide a facility where people can come and feel safe and confident in themselves. A lot of gyms say that is their mission but I feel our facility from the staff to the music truly embodies that.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
I was fortunate enough to grow up in a very good home with most things a kid could want. I’m a giant baseball fan and was lucky enough to get to attend game 7 or the 2002 World Series with my family while our home team, the Anaheim Angels, were playing. It was a surreal experience that I vividly remember to this day 15 years later.
