Next: Biggest Loser Competitor Visits Genesis!
(LEAVENWORTH, KS) – Genesis Health Clubs announced today that they have purchased the property at 2924 S. 4th Street Trafficway, (the former "Food 4 Less" grocery store) and will be targeting to move by the end of the year. Currently Genesis occupies a large space in the Leavenworth Shopping Mall at 3400 S. 4th Street.
The new location allows for more space and many added amenities including a lap pool, basketball court with walking track and an MMA studio that will host the already popular mixed martial arts and American Jujitsu programs Genesis offers. The facility also will have three group fitness studios; a large aerobics floor, a mind/body studio for yoga and Pilates and a cycling studio, a whirlpool, spacious locker rooms that include steam rooms, and large cardio and weight rooms with several pieces of new additional cutting edge equipment. Genesis is known for our Personal Training and the ‘Results Based Training Program’ that will be ever so prevalent in the new facility.
Genesis Owner, Rodney Steven II, stated, “Since opening up our location in Leavenworth I don’t feel we have had the opportunity to serve our members in the way we are known for. We are sorry it took us so long, but we were unable to get the current landlord at the Leavenworth Mall to work with us on a new lease or purchase of the building on acceptable terms. We didn’t want to remodel the existing space until we owned the building or had a long-term lease in place.”
“We own and operate all of our other buildings and this purchase will allow us to bring Leavenworth a large state-of-the-art facility with the same great service and programs as we have in our other Genesis locations. The new location will host so many more amenities including full locker and towel service, free toiletries (shampoo, conditioner and body wash), hair dryers in the locker rooms, and the finishing’s will be very contemporary. We will also have the space to offer more group fitness classes and programs that have been very popular in the club, and we’ll be able to accommodate more members in every class. I’m excited to start construction and share with our members what we have in store for them!” said Steven.
The new Genesis Health Club also plans on housing three or four businesses in its facility including a tanning business with conventional tanning beds and spray tans; a supplement store with nutrition/supplements; a physical therapy office; and possibly a hair salon. Each business will have entrances from the health club for member convenience, as well as exterior entrances for the general public.
