About Welcyon

Fit After 50 in Burnsville? Heck yeah!

Welcome to Welcyon, Fitness After 50 – the best health club for adults over 50 in the Burnsville and Apple Valley area!

I’m Jim Fisher, owner, with an introduction to our club, which is conveniently located in the Summit Oaks Square shopping center at the intersection of County Roads 11 and 42 in Burnsville.

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.

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.

Yours in health,
