Genesis Health Club Redesign
The Genesis Health Club has recently undergone several expansions and remodels, making it more appealing to members. The redesigns were performed in sections so that access to classes and fitness equipment was not affected. New features include a new cardio deck and a more cohesive weight room design. The basketball court has also been refinished. Additionally, the facility has a smoothie bar that doubles as a bar during the evenings.
St. Joseph Tennis and Swim Club
The Genesis Health Club in St. Joseph, Missouri, offers a wide range of amenities. In addition to swimming and tennis, the club offers group exercise classes and personal training. In addition, there are two large gyms with weight training equipment. Both gyms have tennis courts.
The club is donating a free six-week tennis program to children in the St. Joseph area, and Genesis Health Clubs is hosting a VIP dedication ceremony on Jan. 7. The new facility is located on the former St. Joseph Tennis and Swim Club property. Children can register to be a part of the free program, and guests can sponsor the children who wait to play. The Grand Opening will begin at 11 a.m.
Genesis Health Clubs has 12 clubs in the Kansas border state. In 2013, it bought the St. Joseph Tennis and Swim Club, which is located at 3107 N. Belt Highway, in St. Joseph, Missouri. Genesis plans to add a weight room, new tennis courts, and an expanded cardio area. The company also bought two and a half acres of property north of the current club to allow for future expansion. Genesis also plans to hire Kyle Taylor, a St. Joseph native, to be the new tennis pro at the new St. Joseph club.
Genesis Health Clubs also owns a large Tennis and Fitness club in Overland Park, Kansas. The overland Park location is undergoing a $11 million expansion and renovation. Genesis also expanded its footprint in the Kansas City area in April 2016 with the purchase of four corporate-owned Gold’s Gym locations. It also acquired the Aspen Athletic Club in Lawrence, Kansas, and Walburn’s Fitness & Wellness Club in Leavenworth, Kansas.
Genesis Health Clubs is a privately owned chain of 45 fitness clubs in Kansas, Colorado, Nebraska, and Oklahoma. It is one of the largest fitness companies in the Midwest. Rodney Steven II, the company’s founder, also owns the Tulsa Oilers and Wichita Thunder hockey teams, as well as various car dealerships in the Kansas City area.
Genesis has also completed the renovations of several former Gold’s Gym and 24 Hour Fitness locations. The former Gold’s Gym in Olathe and 24 Hour Fitness Active in Overland Park have rebranded to be Genesis Health Clubs. Currently, the company has five locations in the metro area.
