Market Position

Welcyon, Fitness After 50, is a national chain of health clubs specially designed for adults 50 and over. Headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, we offer a fresh alternative to traditional gyms and fills a consumer gap in the $22 billion U.S. health club industry.

More than 100 million Americans – one in three – are 50 or over, and the market is growing by 12,500 daily, or 4.5 million a year. For us baby boomers, protecting our health and vitality is a major priority at this stage in life. But for most of us, traditional gyms, which tend to cater to the young and uber fit, are not the answer.

Welcyon offers a better fit because of our:

Our approach is achieving life-changing results. Analysis shows that, on average, members double their strength within a year – in addition to weight loss, reduced reliance on medications and other success stories. So, not surprisingly, our member satisfaction is nearly twice the industry average.

It’s for these reasons that we promote Welcyon as “the best health club for adults over 50.”
