We are moving quickly! in addition to the construction update we sent out yesterday, starting on Tuesday, Oct 15th, the hallway that leads to the basketball court, squash and racquetball/handball courts will he closed for several weeks. During this time access to the locker rooms will not be permitted as the builders and demo crews will be working on them. 

Members can still enter the weight floor, cardio floor and studios by going through the pool area, located directly across the front doors in the lobby. The door to access the upstairs and weight floor are on the pool deck, to your left if you’re entering from the front lobby. 

Studio 1 and the catwalk will be next up in the demolition. Prepare for the to happen in the next couple weeks. Classes may be altered to different rooms in the building, for example Studio 2 or the Racquetball Courts. We will communicate any changes with you as they come.

Genesis Fort Collins Club Construction FAQ


What is the timeline for the remodel?

We began the first, and longest, project September 10th. The builder has committed to getting us a phasing timeline as soon as possible so we can see approximately when construction is planned for different areas of the club. There are material delivery considerations that have prevented the phasing plan from being completed for members before this point, and we are working with the builder to get this information finalized and posted in the club as soon as possible.


Will the timeline be accurate?

While the builders will do their absolute best to stick to the posted timeline, construction projects this large typically don’t go exactly as planned. As we strive to improve the club hiccups along the way may change the timeline slightly or dramatically depending on the nature of the issues that arise. As we learn about changes, we will post revised timelines in the club and on the web page to keep members informed throughout the process.


Where can I get updates about the remodel project?

We have a dedicated page for the Fort Collins Club remodel project online at We will post pictures and content about the construction process on the page and we will also email our members periodically with new content. Emailed content will also be posted to the blog. Please check The Fort Collins Club Facebook page for any last-minute changes and adjustments.


How will the Handball, Racquetball, and Squash Courts be aff­ected?

Courts 1 and 2 are being removed permanently within the scope of the project. Courts 3 - 6 will remain after the project is complete.

During construction, courts 3-6 may be used for storage and/or programming during various phases of the project. We and the builders will do our best to keep as many courts as we can open, however there may be times where there are no courts available for racquet and handball sports due to other demands for that space. We apologize for the inconvenience and will do our best to minimize court down time to serve our members.


How will the Basketball Court activities be aff­ected?

The basketball court area will receive new lighting and paint, and to protect the floor during this phase there will be a temporary disruption to court time. At this point we are hoping for very minimal disruption to the basketball court activities, and we will post more details and timelines as soon as we have them.


How will Locker Rooms and wet areas be a­ffected?

The locker rooms may be under construction and unavailable as soon as October 14. We will know more details soon, we are waiting on the timeline to be completed and material delivery confirmed so we can minimize the amount of time our locker rooms are unavailable.

The changing area in the locker rooms will be one of the first areas completed, and during the construction in that zone we will provide temporary locker room changing areas in 2 of the back courts by the basketball court. As soon as the new locker room changing areas are finished, we plan to reopen the changing room areas to members.

The wet areas in the locker room, (the restrooms, showers, and sinks), as well as the wet areas behind the locker rooms, (the sauna, steam rooms and hot tub), will begin construction as soon as October 14 and will likely continue through the end of the year. The other restrooms throughout the building will remain available for member use, and there will be no place to shower while the locker rooms are under construction.

We apologize for this inconvenience and encourage members who need to shower in the club to talk with a membership advisor.


How will Group Exercise and other programming be affected?

We will work with the builders to minimize disruption to any scheduled activities in the club. As studios are improved, we will move class locations as much as possible to allow members to continue to attend their normal classes. If disruptions to the class schedule are unavoidable during a certain phase of the project, we will provide as much notice as possible, in the classrooms, on Facebook, and on the construction web page. See membership with additional questions.


What options do I have if the construction project is preventing me from using the club for a period because the areas I use are under construction?

Please come talk to our membership team about your membership if there is a time you will not be able to use your membership during construction.

We will listen to your needs, and work with you every step of the way to support you and help you stay on track toward your goals despite challenging environment of construction. We are very excited for the finished product, and we are here to help find solutions for members throughout the remodel project.


How will the completed remodel aff­ect my membership dues?

As long as you don’t make changes to your membership, your dues will not change as a result of the remodel. New member rates may increase, but current loyal members will be rewarded for sticking through the process by keeping your current membership rate even after the club has been completely remodeled!


Who is completing the remodel work at Fort Collins Club?

A local builder, Sean Rogers, and his crew at Hillside Construction will be heading up the project. Sean and his team will be coordinating with crews for different phases of the project and will help keep us informed and up to date as new information and timeline adjustments occur. We are very excited to work with Sean and his project manager for FCC, Maverick.


We appreciate your patience, understanding and grace as we work with you to navigate the challenges of construction, and look forward to enjoying a wonderful facility upon completion in early 2020!
