Health House Opens 
Up Second Location

Health House has been a part of the Kansas City fitness community for the past four years. But, they have taken their rowing and strength-training experience to the next level with their new location at 3924 W. 69th Terrace, in The Village Shops at Prairie Village.

Owner Jon Knopke partnered with Lenexa-based Dimensional Innovations to bring cutting-edge technology to the studio. The sleek designed WaterRower machines now have a touch-screen pad that rowers can track their stats on during class. The machines sync with a digital wall that displays a scene of water that moves as the class speed on the rower increases. There is also a leaderboard display and total class stats that help rowers push harder and stay on track. Health House worked with local architect KEM Studio to create a modern and luxurious lobby, locker rooms and child care room. Knopke wanted to create a space that you want to work out in and stay to hang out after. 

“It is not just a workout, it’s a lifestyle and a community,” Knopke says.

With a t.Loft juice, smoothie bar and healthy snack counter inside, this Health House is a one-stop shop for healthy living.
