Genesis Health Clubs Celebrates Grand Opening of Ward Parkway Club

Wednesday, January 10 2018 3:35 PM

Genesis Health Clubs has completed work on its extensive remodeling of its Ward Parkway health club, which now includes All-American Training. A fitness trend sweeping Kansas and Nebraska, All-American Training is a heart rate-based interval training class measured by high-tech heart rate monitors. In celebration of the remodeling, a grand opening celebration has been scheduled for Saturday, January 20th with a week of events and sneak previews leading up to the big day.

Acquired from 24 Hour Fitness in 2016, the Ward Parkway location has undergone extensive renovations, including the addition of brand-new luxury locker rooms, towel service, a turf/functional training area, cycle studio, new equipment, more open floor plan and a brand-new All-American Training classroom.

Genesis Health Clubs Owner/President Rodney Steven II was visibly enthusiastic, “When we came into Kansas City a year and a half ago, we came in big; we now have thirteen clubs in the greater Kansas City area. I knew from day one that Ward Parkway was the perfect one to show the community what Genesis Health Clubs is all about.”

Steven continued, “I can’t even believe this is the same building. Between the new lounge area, luxury locker rooms, open floor plan, new cycle studio, and above all else, All-American Training, this is a world-class health club now. We can’t wait for Kansas City to really experience everything Genesis is bringing to the table.”

Asked about All-American Training, Steven smiled, “All-American Training? I’ve been in the fitness business for decades, and I’ve never seen something like this. People in the industry talk a lot about gamification, and wearables are all the rage. This takes both of those ideas and combines it into a calorie-shredding workout where you can see your progress up on the screen the whole time and have a friendly competition with the person next to you.”

“The best thing is that it doesn’t matter if someone is an Olympic athlete or hasn’t exercised in their life. The monitors measure your total effort; so long as you give it your best effort, you can be right up there on the board. Plus, the interval training is perfect at getting results quickly. I can’t believe how many calories people burn in this class. Throw in energetic music and black lights and it’s downright addictive.”

Asked about future plans in Kansas City, Steven smiled. “We might just have some big news to share soon. Stay healthy and stay tuned!”
