Welcyon to open in Las Vegas area this spring
Welcyon is coming to the Las Vegas area! Our newest (and seventh) club will open in Henderson this spring in Anthem Village Plaza.
“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.”
Owners with healthcare experience
The Henderson club will be owned and operated by Mark and Suzanne Severino. Mark, a reproductive healthcare physician and his wife Suzanne, a former fitness trainer who later worked as an embryologist with her husband, wanted to continue their careers of helping people live healthier. After exploring other fitness concepts, they chose Welcyon because they believe it fills a gap in addressing the needs of the 50+ market.
“Throughout our careers, we have always noticed the lack of health clubs that cater to adults over 50,” said Suzanne. “Welcyon allows us to change that by providing a welcoming environment that’s a better fit than traditional gyms. Based on the marked improvement members make in their health, plus the extraordinarily high customer satisfaction scores, it’s clear that the emphasis on one-on-one coaching is helping people get stronger, leaner, re-energized and feeling better than they have in years – that’s the type of business worth bringing to this community.”
Personalized one-on-one coaching
At Welcyon, members are paired with a fitness coach and registered dietitian, and work from a specially tailored exercise and nutrition roadmap for better health.
Workouts are guided on unique, strength-training equipment that uses air instead of weight stacks to create resistance, build strength and minimize the risk of injury. The equipment is also powered by Smart Card technology that 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, making them progressively more challenging as the member improves.
“People have a perception of what a gym looks like,” CEO Boerboom added. “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.”
Welcyon clubs are characterized by a warm, sophisticated décor that features soft lighting, earth-tone colors and natural elements like a water wall to create a relaxing, spa-like ambiance. Social activities and wellness workshops on topics such as brain fitness and better sleep complement the fitness and nutrition coaching.
