The Brand New Wellbridge

The Brand New Wellbridge

Thursday will be the last day for exercising in the old Wellbridge Athletic Club & Spa building on Forsyth. The brand new 40,000 square foot club and spa, just footsteps away on Forsyth, will open Monday. The $10 million two-story space (not including the cost of the building) is in the heart of the Centene Clayton Campus at 7676 Forsyth Boulevard. The goal is to have the best health club and spa, offering the latest fitness programs under one roof with the best instructors, facilities, and services catering to a quick workout or a place to spend the entire day. The new Wellbridge is perfect for the business executive who only has an hour, or parents who are looking for an energetic place to bring their young children. To meet the demand for fitness fans who want the latest trends, the club will even feature a new concept studio – the Atlas Studio – which will change every six months.

 Aerial yoga will be offered in the new Wellbridge Club.
