On Feb. 24, Anchor Management Group was awarded the 2017 Reader’s Choice Award from the Myrtle Beach Herald.
Operations Manager Joseph Pilotte describes the location as “a win for us since opening.” He explains that when franchisee Alex Choquette first opened the location, there were only a few other gyms, and they were mostly “smaller mom and pop style operations.” He said there was nothing else like Planet Fitness® on the block.
“When we arrived, we were more affordable, larger and of course, something entirely different from other gyms,” said Pilotte.
Today, the fitness scene in Myrtle Beach has grown and so has Anchor Management’s competition. The location competes with other gyms in the area such as Gold’s Gym, Sky Fitness, Core Fitness and Anytime Fitness. However, Pilotte notes that “none of these gyms compare with PF’s price point, value and environment.”
Pilotte said awards like these are a great thing to showcase on the accent wall within the club and hopes that members can “stumble across it to see a snapshot into the history of the great service the club provides.”
“I’m hoping we can win awards like these every year,” said Pilotte. “Recognition within the community we serve is always revered. It really means a lot to us providing a consistent experience each and every visit – day after day, year over year.”
