P.S. Positive Story... 

In light of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Ascension Genesys Health Club would like to acknowledge the accomplishment of one of our long time members… Jim Grubba.


On November 5th, 2001, Sandy and Jim Grubba lost their eldest daughter Kim to a six year battle against metastatic breast cancer. Understandably, it took a long time before the Grubba’s could talk about Kim's ordeal and her courage. During that time, they participated in several different events (such as "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer" and "Relay For Life" - both of which are worthy fundraising programs) but the Grubba’s wanted to raise as much money as possible specifically for breast cancer research.


Fast forward to June of 2007 when the first annual Kim (Grubba) Farrell Memorial Golf Outing was held. The Grubba’s set a long-term goal for themselves to raise and donate $200,000 most of which would go to the Susan G. Komen - Rally For The Cure. Just last month, the Grubba’s held their final outing after fourteen successful years of planning and fundraising in Kim’s honor.  


Jim is currently recovering from a double bypass heart procedure and hopes to come home soon. As soon as he is home and a few more checks clear, the Grubba’s will cut their final check for just over $18,000… albeit, a bit short of the entire target amount - the Grubba’s plan to make up the difference. Ascension Genesys Health Club would like to congratulate the Grubba’s on their accomplishment! To raise $200,000 is no small feat!


The Grubba’s want to THANK all of the local businesses who donated items such as dinners, gift certificates, etc. that made their outings so successful. In particular they'd like to wish a BIG THANKS to all of the club members who participated in ANY WAY to their quest.

Indoor Group Fitness Classes

Due to social distancing and class capacity, registration for Group Fitness classes is required using Group Ex Pro. Weather permitting we will still be allowing Group Fitness classes to be hosted outside. If weather does not permit, Group Fitness classes will take place in Studio 1, Studio 2, or on Tennis Courts 6 and 7. Classes will need 3 or more attendees to be held, so please be sure to register!
Late arrivals: Due to Covid-19 restrictions and necessary cleaning procedures, once classes begin, the doors will be closed and late arrivals will not be allowed to enter.
**Cancellation of registration: Due to Covid-19 capacity restrictions, members are required to cancel their class registration if they cannot attend. Failure to cancel registration may result in members being restricted from future class registrations.

Please note: Instructors will be announcing the following prior to each Group Fitness class:

  • Face Masks are required at all times for ALL indoor Group Fitness classes.
  • Please do YOUR part to keep everyone safe and healthy, by wearing your mask at all times.
  • If for any reason your mask falls off, replace it as soon as possible.
  • Be sure to pace yourself accordingly. If you feel light headed, dizzy, or not well... stop immediately and take a break. For extreme situations, remove yourself from the area and away from all members to remove your mask and breathe freely.
