Genesis Health Centers acquire two clubs

Genesis Health Centers, owner of 15 clubs in Kansas, has agreed to purchase two Ozark Fitness Centers in Springfield, Mo.

Plans to renovate the Missouri locations are underway as Genesis is known for upscale locker rooms, spacious weight rooms and cardio areas, and other upscale amenities.

“I’m excited to bring Genesis Health Clubs to Springfield and look forward to working with the community," Rodney Stevens II, Genesis owner, said on the Ozarks First website." I am fully committed to maintaining safe, clean, state-of-the-art facilities and hope to create the same great atmosphere here as we have at our other Genesis locations."
