“When you find your why, you find a way to make it happen.” Words of wisdom from Tim Bowers, owner of Anytime Fitness located in Mound, MN. An avid runner, motivator and personal trainer. Growing up an athlete, he has always stayed active in the fitness realm. After 25 years in the corporate world, Tim decided it was time for a change and opened his doors to the community 13 years ago.
Anytime Fitness provides a welcoming, encouraging and empowering environment. “It’s a place where people feel like they belong and are a member within the community,” states Tim. From weights, workout equipment, rope machines, yoga and spin studio and now teaching four free classes a day, Tim provides a variety of workout options to keep all members active and engaged. Ages range from 16-86 and Tim knows just about every member by name… and their age! “David, with one arm, will begin teaching a class when I’m wrapping up a meeting. The leadership and encouragement from everyone is what makes this place so unique,” says Tim. Being surrounded by people who have the same interest of living a healthy lifestyle is what keeps individuals motivated. There is no doubt Tim’s energetic and positive attitude is contagious to those around him. After all, he did just finish his 131st marathon!
Anytime Fitness proudly participates in Silver Sneakers, a program for seniors that defy the odds of fitness and answer every challenge with, “I can do this!” Tim’s favorite part about working with Sojourn is the positivity they bring when they walk through the door. “They’re excited! It’s their time to
focus on themselves physically and mentally. There’s something about feeling like you are a member and the same as everyone else that that makes it so much more motivating,” explains Tim. Studies show that exercise and a person’s mental health correlate hand in hand. From reducing stress and anxiety levels to helping with fine motor skills. Exercise is prominent to living an overall healthy lifestyle.
“If you’re not working to make someone else’s life better, you’re wasting your time.” – Will Smith. “I live by this quote because I feel it is so powerful and true,” states Tim with his upbeat energy.
Thank you for all your continued encouragement. You’re an inspiration to many!
