Welcome to Welcyon, Fitness After 50 – the best health club for adults over 50 in Edina, Minnesota, and surrounding area, including Richfield and south Minneapolis!
I’m Ki McCue, club manager, with an introduction to our club, which is conveniently located on the corner of Valley View Road and Wooddale Avenue, just north of Crosstown.
These days, turning 50 isn’t about slowing down, it’s about revving up for the next phase of life! That’s why you’ll embrace Welcyon (pronounced well-see-on). We’re a new kind of health club with a better way to help you get fit. Working with us, you’ll be measurably stronger in weeks, with more energy and staying power to enjoy your favorite activities and everyday life.
We’re nothing like a traditional gym. Here’s what makes us a better fit:
One-on-one coaching – at no extra cost No guesswork here on how to get and stay healthy. A fitness coach creates your workout plan and provides ongoing instruction and motivation, while a registered dietitian recommends a meal plan and offers year-round nutritional advice.
Fast results with “smart” strength-building equipment Our equipment is easy to use and runs on air resistance, which means less strain on joints and ligaments and less chance of injury. Plus, it’s computerized, so it acts like a second coach. Your prescribed workout plan is programmed in advance, enabling each machine to greet you by name, set your resistance, count reps and challenge you more as you improve. This is a key reason why, on average, Welcyon members are 50% stronger within three months of joining, and twice as strong in a year!
Friendly, supportive environment Gyms can be intimidating. Not us, we’re like a modern-day “Cheers” – a smaller, friendly place where staff knows you by name. Fellow members are like you – adults 50 and over who prefer a comfortable place away from the spandex and muscle shirts. To get and stay healthy, you’ve got to stick with a plan. Our staff and setting motivate you to come back again and again, helping you achieve the results you want.
Guidance and support every workout
My passion has always been fitness. I played tennis through high school and college, and later coached as well. And I try to do some form of exercise five days a week. But that’s not where YOU have to start. We will design your program to reflect where you are today, then modify it as you progress.
Lives change here—for the better—and I find it very rewarding to be a part of that. I’d love to show you around the club. Please visit for a tour and cup of coffee.
Yours in health,
Welcyon, Fitness After 50 – Edina, Minnesota
