Genesis Celebrates Grand Opening of Topeka Southwest Club

Wednesday, January 10 2018 3:38 PM

Genesis Health Clubs today announced a grand opening celebration for its recently completed Topeka Southwest location. A full week of events has been announced, culminating with a grand opening celebration on Saturday, January 20th, featuring special classes, prizes, free workouts for all Topeka residents, and a free Wilson tennis racquet for the first 300 guests to tour the new club. In addition, Genesis Health Clubs will be presenting the local chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters with a free tennis camp for Bigs and Littles to enjoy this summer.

Genesis Health Clubs acquired the location, formerly owned by Maximus Fitness in 2014 and immediately began plans for remodeling. Construction formally began in early 2017 and reached completion this month. Included in the remodel is a new basketball court, expanded weight room and cardio area, towel service, a new lobby and lounge with smoothie bar, grand slam room for enhanced tennis viewing and three new outdoor tennis courts, among other major tennis enhancements.

Genesis Health Clubs Owner and President Rodney Steven II said with enthusiasm, “Our members in Topeka have been waiting for this for long time with grace and patience. Well that patience has now paid off, as we’ve brought something this community has never seen before. Genesis has a lot of great clubs, but this might be one of the greatest.”

Steven continued, “When we came to Topeka a few years ago, we saw huge potential. The locker rooms needed a lot of work, the layout was a little confusing and the facility just needed some love and care. But it had a sense of community that we just fell in love with and we wanted to show our members more. They deserved a world-class facility, and now they have one.”

National Tennis Director Mike Woody jumped in, “Tennis has been transformed in Topeka. Three new post tension outdoor tennis courts with outdoor lighting, resurfacing of the six indoor courts with great playability color, the very best in class indoor LED lighting… tennis has never been so easy on the eyes. It’s a brand-new atmosphere with the new Grand Slam viewing area, backdrops and divider curtains. Jaws will drop!”

“Most of all, we will support these new features with a smorgasbord of activities that will be sure to get anyone interested in tennis: youth, adults, new to the game, experienced tennis veterans… it doesn’t matter. It’s almost too much tennis to handle!”

Woody continued, “Genesis has made a major investment in developing tennis in Topeka. We’re proud to announce that we’ll be overseeing tennis at the Kossover Tennis Center going forward, we’ll be giving out 300 free racquets to the community and we’ll be giving away a free summer camp to Big Brothers Big Sisters as part of our initiative to get kids active and loving the sport at an early age.”

Steven jumped back in, “Our entire purpose at Genesis Health Clubs is to deliver results for life to our members. We’re inviting the Topeka community out for a taste of that. We will not rest until Topeka is heathier, happier and having more fun.”
