Welcome to Welcyon, Fitness After 50 – the best health club for adults over 50 in Fargo, North Dakota!
I’m Heather Teigen, owner, with an introduction to our club, which is conveniently located in South Creek Mall, 32nd Avenue and 25th Street.
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.
An alternative to traditional gyms
Early in life, my parents, Sandy and Jim Christopherson (yep, the football coach), instilled in me the importance of regular exercise, healthy eating and an active lifestyle. They’re still my role models. In fact, both are coaches in the club and members love interacting with them.
It was natural for me to open a Welcyon in Fargo because it fills a missing piece in the local health club scene – where else do you go if you’re turned off by traditional gyms? – and it changes people’s lives, which is both personally and professionally rewarding for me.
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 – Fargo, North Dakota
