Wellbridge Bringing New Era in Fitness to Clayton, MO

(DENVER, CO) – Wellbridge Athletic Club & Spa in Clayton, MO is embarking upon a spectacular new era in fitness. As the city plans for a $770 million corporate campus development, Wellbridge Athletic Club & Spa will continue to serve as the neighborhood’s heartbeat. And do it in style. The existing 35,000 sq. ft. luxury club will be replaced by a striking 40,000 sq. ft. athletic club, just steps away from its current entrance.

Wellbridge COO JoAnna Masloski said she can’t wait to begin such an exciting project. “Being able to stay in the center of the community while so much growth is taking place is an incredible opportunity. We intend to create an atmosphere that matches the city’s energy and also feels like a home away from home.”

When Masloski mentions atmosphere and “feel,” she knows what she’s talking about. “We have recent experience building an industry-leading club that caters specifically to its surrounding community and what those members want. The timing of this build couldn’t be better for us to incorporate what we’ve learned, and then present Clayton residents with the absolute finest.”

The new club will provide a more efficient design and flow that offers the customer better amenities and an even better experience. Proposed plans include:

:: Hot yoga studio and anti-gravity wall
:: Expansive functional training space
:: 25-meter pool
:: Energy Café specializing in made-to-order smoothies and juices from all natural ingredients
:: Covered parking
:: Expanded childcare area with additional age-appropriate programming
:: Concept studio featuring the latest in fitness trends

Of course there is also a renowned spa that will continue to be open to the public.

“We’ve been a part of this neighborhood for decades” Masloski added. “It’s nice to know that relationship will continue with a brand new club that reflects Clayton’s progress and vision.”
