Anytime Fitness is a fitness chain that has been growing for 10 consecutive years. The chain opened the 4,000th gym in Shanghai, China, on March 16th. Anytime Fitness is the first and only US-origin fitness chain to receive a license to work in China.
Anytime Fitness has more than 3,000,000 customers in 4000 gyms with a working concept that operates 7 days a week and 24 hours a day. Anytime Fitness reached 4000 gyms in only 16 years. The first chain to reach this number in a shorter time is Subway, which has reached 4000 stores in 15 years and still holds the record.
The goal of Anytime Fitness is to become the first franchise chain that serves 7 continents. Anytime Fitness also signed a license agreement with a company in Morocco to enter the African market. With this deal, they will open many gyms in Morocco very soon.
Anytime Fitness wants to open a gym in Antarctica as soon as possible. As a result, they will be able to become a chain that serves 7 continents. Continuing to work towards this goal Anytime Fitness is still the world's largest fitness chain.

Make a quick start, decide to right maneuvers at the right moment while sliding on a tiny sled in the ice tunnel, always try to be faster, and reach to the end of the track as soon as possible. This is the way I can define 'Skeleton' in a non-technical format. I had the chance to interview Janine Flock, 2015 Overall World Cup Winner Skeleton Athlete, about her career and the importance of individual sponsorship in winter sports.
Technology advances every day and adds new fun to our lives. VR headsets are one of the most important examples of this.

Beijing-based LUCI presents the World's First Immersion-on-Demand Personal Wearable.
We love to experience new cuisines and taste new dishes and delicacies. We like some of them and we want to eat it again, but we do not even prefer to taste some of them again. However, Italian cuisine has a special place, everyone loves Italian tastes. I talked to Chef Paolo Gallotti about his career and Vero Italian.
