Health club targets ‘over 50s’
Welcyon, Fitness After 50, a Minneapolis-based chain of health clubs specially designed for adults over 50, is making its Henderson debut this spring.
The new club in Anthem Village Plaza will offer a personalized approach to fitness that combines strength, cardio and nutrition coaching.
“We are thrilled to announce our expansion in Henderson,” said Suzy Boerboom, co-founder and CEO of Welcyon. “We’re here because the fitness industry generally hasn’t served people over 50 very well, and we have a game-changing product that is helping them measurably improve their health and add years of healthy, active aging to their lives.”
The Henderson club will be owned and operated by Dr. Mark Severino and his wife, Suzanne. Severino was previously a medical director and reproductive endocrinologist at Las Vegas-based Red Rock Fertility and Suzanne is a former fitness trainer who worked as an embryologist with her husband.
“Welcyon seemed like a perfect fit because it’s more like a wellness center than a fitness center,” Severino said. “As we age, working out and maintaining muscle is vitally important to overall health. Yet here in Las Vegas, so many older people are intimidated by gyms filled with young showgirls and muscle heads. Welcyon is dedicated to helping people age actively with good health, so they can enjoy their lives; and that really fits with our health care upbringing.”
Suzanne added, “Throughout our careers, we have always noticed the lack of health clubs that cater to adults over 50. Welcyon seemed like the best fit for us. It targets a hot demographic we relate to, fills a gap in the health club industry, and taps a large market in our backyard. Here in Vegas, we have a huge retirement population with many age-restricted communities.”
At Welcyon, members are paired with a fitness coach and registered dietitian, who form a specific exercise and nutrition plan. Workouts are guided on strength-training equipment that use air instead of weight stacks to create resistance and build strength while minimizing the risk of injury.
The equipment is powered by Smart Card technology, which pre-programs each member’s prescribed workout into every machine. Each machine greets the member by name, sets the resistance, counts reps and adjusts the workouts as the member improves.
Boerboom said the Las Vegas area can potentially support up to five Welcyon locations.
“People have a perception of what a gym looks like,” Boerboom said. “To them, it’s a big, loud place full of people in tight leotards and muscles bulging from their tank shirts. Welcyon is way outside that paradigm.”
