Opportunity. Independence. Friendships. Health and wellness. Choices. All this and more is yours at Bishop Spencer Place.
At Bishop Spencer Place, we believe wellness is achieved by focusing on mind, body and spirit. That’s why we offer opportunities for physical exercise, lifelong learning, volunteering, fun and fellowship.
Our Fitness Center boasts cardio-training equipment and free weights, and we host a variety of fitness classes in the adjacent Activity Center. Our partnership with the Kirmayer Fitness & Aquatic Center at the University of Kansas Medical Center provides additional fitness opportunities at no charge to our residents.
The KU Kirmayer Fitness & Aquatic Center is a 50,000 square foot fitness center featuring a 75-foot long lap pool, a whirlpool, a suspended walking/jogging track, cardiovascular and strength training equipment, two group fitness studios, racquetball/squash courts and a basketball court.
All residents receive a free membership with free transportation to and from the Center, which is conveniently located just one mile northwest of our community on the KU Medical Center campus.
In addition to our regularly scheduled on-site fitness and wellness programs, a personal trainer is now “on call” to work with you one-on-one to meet your individual needs. Callie McGuire is a certified trainer who helps residents work on specific fitness goals, and creates personalized workouts. A workout session may consist of flexibility, balance, weight training, core stability, overall strengthening and more.
Pair the physical activities with talks with local authors, trips to educational events at the Kansas City libraries and hosting a literary circle for local high students and you have an approach that encompasses all facets of wellness.
