Meet Rodney Steven II | Wichita, KS

The Start of Genesis Health Clubs

Rodney Steven II, President, and Owner of Genesis Health Clubs, attended Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois on a tennis scholarship. Prior to attending the university, he had actively taught tennis and was always physically active. After graduating, Rodney continued following his vision of pursuing a healthy lifestyle and helping others in his hometown do the same. He soon recognized the need for a fitness center that was focused on top-quality customer service and personal attention. 

It was from this early vision that the service-oriented, results-based training model was born, and Genesis Health Club anchored its rightful place in the fitness industry.

Genesis Health Club currently has seven facilities in Wichita, KS. Over the years, Genesis has expanded its reach opening clubs in every city in Kansas with a population of over 30,000. The company has also opened locations in Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, Colorado, Oklahoma, Florida, and Kentucky; giving customers the most well-rounded and professional fitness experience. 

With 150,000 patrons coming through the doors daily, Genesis has maintained the best facilities, hired the best staff, and provided thousands of members, from youth to senior citizens, with the ultimate fitness and exercise experience. 

Genesis owns most of its properties and operates each one of them. 

Goddard Sports Complex & More

Through many associations made over the years in sports and sports training, Rodney Steven II has had the opportunity to branch out into other businesses. This includes the Goddard (Genesis) Sports Complex in Goddard, KS, which includes a health club, pre-school, hotel, indoor waterpark, ten tournament baseball fields, and a competitive natatorium, restaurant, and sand sports. 

Another huge win for Steven was the purchase of the Wichita Thunder Hockey Team, part of the ECHL affiliate program. The first season under new ownership, the Thunder posted a winning record and bid for the league championship.

The Genesis Foundation For Fitness & Tennis

Rodney's passion for fitness extends beyond just the health club industry and into philanthropy. In 2006, Rodney and Brandon founded the Genesis Foundation for Fitness and Tennis (GFFT). This 501c3 foundation operates with the purpose of allowing all citizens, regardless of background and means, the opportunity to participate in recreational and/or competitive fitness activities. GFFT provides funding and scholarships for individuals interested in tennis, both for recreation and competition, as well as at-risk, disadvantaged and otherwise under-funded youth. 

GFFT has also recently donated hundreds of pairs of shoes and mattresses to disadvantaged youth with its Kicks for Kids and Beds for Kids programs. It is Rodney's mission to make sure that all children have the opportunity to experience the joy of fitness, and GFFT helps bring that goal closer to reality every day.
