New Gym Opens for Elders

Posted: Updated:

A new fitness center has opened its doors in Fargo geared towards people 50 and older.

The owner of Welcyon fitness after 50 says her fitness center features a more relaxing environment than traditional gyms, with softer music and less mirrors.

Gym members are paired with a dietician that helps develop a nutrition plan, and the new equipment in the gym uses air compressors, so it's easier on joints.

Heather Teigen, the owner of Welcyon Fitness after 50 says "the staff is wonderful because they definitely are gonna push you a little bit but we're not gonna push you to the point where you're actually gonna injure yourself."

The training equipment also uses smart car technology that tracks each member's workout and progress.
