About Welcyon

Fit After 50 in Henderson? Heck yeah!

Welcyon, Fitness After 50, is coming to Henderson, NV this spring. We understand that 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 included in your membership at no extra cost
  • “Smart” equipment that tracks your progress and adjusts your workouts as you improve
  • Coach-led cardio classes for a healthy heart, more stamina and faster calorie burn
  • Wellness Workshops on nutrition, sleep, meditation and other healthy lifestyle topics
  • Friendly, non-intimidating setting that motivates you to workout regularly and be your healthiest

Get twice as strong within a year!

On average our members improve their strength by 50% within three months, and double their strength within a year. This means if you can barely lift a 20-pound bag now, you could be lifting 30-pounds within weeks, and 40-pounds comfortably within a year. Not to mention your ability to lose weight, rely less on medications and outlast your grandkids on the playground.

Guaranteed lifetime rate!

This is the best time to commit to your health and join our club. By joining now before our doors open, you become a Founding Member with a guaranteed, locked-in lifetime rate (that’s right, your rate never goes up) and pay no joiner’s fee. That’s a savings of more than $300 in your first year. This offer is only available to the first 50 joiners. If what you want is support, motivation and a structured, easy way to make fitness and healthier living part of your life, Welcyon is what you’ve been looking for.

We’ll be happy to tell you more, contact us now for more information.

Fit After 50 in Boise? Heck yeah!

Welcome to Welcyon, Fitness After 50 – the best health club for adults over 50 in Boise, Idaho!

I’m Bonnie Kirby, owner, with an introduction to our club, which is conveniently located at 12505 W Chinden Blvd in BRC Plaza, west of North Cloverdale Road.

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, provides instruction, and is present every visit for guidance and support.
  • 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.

Dining to get fit!

Start Now

The idea for Welcyon came to me at a dinner party where a group of friends were talking about the lack of health clubs in Boise catering to adults 50 and over. I wholeheartedly agreed. So I did the research, came across Welcyon as an up-and-coming franchisor, and concluded that this is exactly what we need here in Boise.

Join Now

My club is filling a need in our town, and through it I’m able to help so many people rediscover strength, energy and vitality in their second half of life. It’s not just a business for me, it’s personally rewarding to be able to help and give back.

I’d love to show you around the club. Please visit for a tour and cup of coffee.

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.

Join Now

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.

Health is Everything

Start Now

I spent 25 years working for a local printing company, a $100 million business, the last eight as president. Although I always tried to stay active, the demands of my job made exercise a low priority. I gained a lot of weight and that lifestyle took its toll. In 2012, I had a stroke.

During rehab, I regained my ability to walk, drive and stand for long periods. It was a long struggle, and it was also a wake-up call. From that moment on, I committed myself to physical and nutritional fitness. I became deeply aware your health is everything. It was time to do something different.

The Welcyon concept appealed to me professionally – but it also spoke to me on a personal level. Having seen the heart-moving success stories of people whose lives have been changed at other Welcyon clubs, that was enough to convince me this is where I want to be at this point of my life – in my community, serving others with a business that brings me personal purpose and fulfillment.

I’d love to show you around the club. Please visit for a tour and cup of coffee.

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.
