The Kansas City Chiefs are bringing a new fitness center concept to the Kansas City area in the spring of 2021, with the announcement of Chiefs Fit, a state-of-the-art health and wellness facility that will be located at Regency Park Shopping Center near 93rd and Metcalf in Overland Park, Kansas.
Chiefs Kingdom and fitness enthusiasts alike will have access to approximately 37,000 square feet of state-of-the-art fitness and recovery equipment. This signature facility will feature a strength and conditioning area with new Chiefs-branded free weights, machines and cardio equipment, an indoor turf field and a recovery facility that features cryotherapy treatment, hydromassage machines, recovery systems, a sauna, spray tan booths and full-amenity locker rooms. Group fitness classes and personal training services will also be offered at Chiefs Fit, and to stay on top of nutrition and apparel, the space will include a fuel station and a retail shop that features Chiefs Fit branded gear.
Chiefs Fit will feature the same health and safety protocols used at Arrowhead Stadium which are designed to keep members and guests safe. The facility is being built with sanitization in mind, including touchless water fillers, approved Air PHX HVAC ventilation and will undergo the social distancing, cleaning and sanitization best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In addition, the facility will comply with all state and local orders that govern the operation of gyms and fitness facilities for as long as those orders remain in place during the ongoing pandemic.
"We're extremely excited to announce Chiefs Fit and can't wait for this venture to be up and running in a few short months," Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. "We have continued to focus on health and wellness over the past couple of years, and not just for our players, coaches and staff. This focus has included looking for ways to promote health and wellness to our fans and in our community, and we think that having a state-of-the art fitness center with our brand, paired with the best staff, equipment and services, will provide a truly one-of-a-kind experience for workout enthusiasts of all walks of life throughout the Kansas City area."
The community-wide health, wellness and fitness project is a joint effort in partnership with M6 Football and its founder and chairman, Mark Mastrov, who is the founder and former chairman of 24 Hour Fitness, which he sold in 2014. Mastrov, along with the M6 Football team, has successfully launched multiple gyms in partnership with NFL franchises, including ventures with the San Francisco 49ers, the Dallas Cowboys, the Chicago Bears, the Cleveland Browns and the Houston Texans.
"We are very excited and proud to be able to partner with the Super Bowl Champion Chiefs to bring this amazing facility to life," said Mastrov. "Our goal is to enhance people's lives through health and fitness and keep them fit year round."
Membership information will be announced in January and enrollment will open at the same time, with the gym set to open in the spring. Designed for fitness enthusiasts of all levels – from elite athletes to weekend warriors – Chiefs Fit will offer amenities for the whole family. The first 500 people to join as Chiefs Fit Founding Members will secure a lifetime reduced rate and will receive a founding member kit that includes a branded Nike hat, t-shirt and mask.
