Anytime Fitness honored Gig Harbor franchise owners Dean and Becky Carpenter as “Club Operators of the Year” at a national conference last week in Florida.
“This is a huge honor for Dean and Becky,” Anytime Fitness co-founder Chuck Runyon said. “We have more than 2,000 clubs worldwide. For the Gig Harbor club to be singled out speaks volumes about their club. They exemplify the franchise model and continue to grow their club membership. The hands-on and proactive owners care deeply about their members.”
Dean Carpenter said the award was an honor.
“I am a single club owner, and there are many strong and talented owners in this franchise, including many multiple club owners,” he said.
The Carpenters joined Anytime Fitness in August 2007. They coordinate regional meetings for nearby clubs. Dean is on the franchise advisory council.
“I care deeply about my staff and know I could not have achieved this without all of their support,” he said.
Anya Edgley-Turpin, the Gig Harbor franchise’s club manager, received the Hired to Inspire award in 2012.
