Mason and Sara Pender recently became part owners of the Anytime Fitness in Detroit Lakes. 

We have partnered with the club’s existing owner/manager, Tim Teragawa, to help manage, expand the membership and make renovations to the club’s current layout. 

“Sara and I are very excited to partner with Tim in this business, because he has done an excellent job growing the club over the past six years,” said Pender. “We have a great deal of respect for Tim’s expertise in the fitness industry and with his approach to helping people achieve their goals at the club.”

Pender says the couple has a lot of interest in physical fitness and staying active.

“We believe in the physical and mental effects of regular exercise, and we love how the business model of Anytime Fitness helps work fitness into busy people’s lives.”

The club is also going through a remodel of the facility, including the addition of a new fitness room.
