The in-person enrollment center is scheduled to open on Monday, Feb. 1 at 9256 Metcalf Ave. in the Regency Park Shopping Center.
Chiefs Fit, which was announced in December, is a 37,000 square foot state-of-the-art health and wellness facility featuring the latest in fitness and recovery equipment.

Founding memberships start as low as $49 per month and founding members will secure a lifetime reduced rate, along with a founding member kit that includes a branded Nike hat, t-shirt and mask. Other membership options include the Recovery deluxe membership, couple, and family options. Chiefs Season Ticket Members have the opportunity to secure a special reduced enrollment rate and can call (913) 914-5858 for details.
The facility will feature the same health and safety protocols used at Arrowhead Stadium which are designed to keep members and guests safe. The facility is being built with sanitization in mind, including touchless water fillers and approved Air PHX HVAC ventilation and will undergo the social distancing, cleaning and sanitization best practices recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In addition, the facility will comply with all state and local orders that govern the operation of gyms and fitness facilities for as long as those orders remain in place during the ongoing pandemic.
The community-wide health, wellness and fitness project is a joint effort in partnership with M6 Football and its founder and chairman, Mark Mastrov, who is the founder and former chairman of 24 Hour Fitness, which he sold in 2014. Mastrov, along with the M6 Football team, has successfully launched multiple gyms in partnership with NFL franchises, including ventures with the San Francisco 49ers, the Dallas Cowboys, the Chicago Bears, the Cleveland Browns and the Houston Texans.
In addition to membership enrollment opening soon, the facility has announced the hiring of Chiefs Fit General Manager Ron Gochee. Originally from outside of Chicago, Gochee has called Kansas City home for more than two decades and is a 26-year veteran of the fitness industry.
