Randy Gierczak

West Central Club Manager

I'm from Michigan and I grew up playing hockey, football and baseball.   I went to the University of Detroit on a baseball scholarship, and have always been into fitness and sports.  I got into the fitness industry because of my love for people and health.  I strongly believe your health is the key to living the quality of life you want.  I enjoy the fact that I have the ability to influence someone's life thru fitness.  I have worked in the industry for 9 years and I have seen many lives changed in this time.  The bottom line is everybody knows they should exercise to live a better life but only the strong few actually do something about it.  I love being involved in these peoples lives! 


I worked for a company called Pure Fitness in Arizona for 7 years, then I moved to Seattle to run a Gold's gym there.   The weather was not for me, so I followed my long time boss from Seattle to Wichita.  The people here are amazing and I can only hope to have an impact on people's lives here too.   My motto is to do anything within my power to change the health and the lives of others.  This is what really excites me.  Please come ask me for any help you need so you can make my life better by helping you.  I am always here for you.
