Anytime Fitness to Continue Motivating Warriors with Sponsorship Collaboration

CHICAGO, IL (Feb. 4) – Warrior Dash, the world’s largest obstacle race series, announced Anytime Fitness as the most recent sponsorship addition for a third year in 2015. Similar to 2014, local Anytime Fitness representatives will be available in the festival area with interactive on-site activations at each of the 30+ national locations in 2015.

With more than two million members nationwide, Anytime Fitness is the official fitness club of Warrior Dash. There are thousands of club locations, open 24-hours/7-days a week, offering affordable memberships. Local representatives will be leading group stretches for all Warrior Dash participants and interested spectators twice daily at each location.

“Warrior Dash is all about pushing yourself to the limit and overcoming obstacles,” said Stacy Anderson, Chief Marketing Officer for Anytime Fitness. “And that’s what Anytime Fitness is all about; removing the barriers people face every day so they can get to a healthier place. We’re here not only to help them prepare with convenient gyms, the latest equipment and training, but more importantly to provide a supportive community that inspires people to do things they never thought possible.”

“Anytime Fitness has been a key partner in engaging Warriors with training tips and motivation both before and after completing the course,” says Ryan Mortimer, Sponsorship Director at Warrior Dash production company, Red Frog Events. “We look forward to continuing this partnership in 2015.”

Since 2009, Warrior Dash has had over two million participants tackle the Battleground, with hundreds of thousands expected to join this year. Warrior Dash registration details and more information can be found at To obtain more information or on-site credentials for an event, contact
