Success Story: Anytime Fitness

“WBD made it possible for our business to relocate into the ideal location and layout to maximize the opportunity for our small business.  They were great throughout the whole process and walked us through each step of the financing.  I couldn’t have asked for a better experience from beginning to closing.”

     – Karmen Ninahlo, Owner

Karmen Nenahlo, owner of eight Anytime Fitness locations across Wisconsin, was looking to improve her two Appleton, Wisconsin locations. Utilizing an SBA 504 loan provided by WBD and financing from First National Bank of Waseca, Karmen was able to construct a new, larger facility across the street from her prior location on Springfield Drive in Appleton, Wisconsin. Karmen was also able to refinance the debt she acquired when purchasing the Casaloma Drive location in Appleton. Thanks to the construction and refinance, the Springfield Drive now boasts 700 square feet of additional space for members to use. The refinance also allows Karen to build equity while reducing her monthly payments.
