A new branch of the Greenfield-based Hancock Wellness Center, a gym and medical rehabilitation facility, is set to open in McCordsville this coming winter.

The 50,000-square-foot facility will feature strength and cardio machines, two heated swimming pools, an indoor track, a gymnasium, separate saunas and steam rooms for men and women, and aerobic rooms.

The facility will form part of the Hancock Regional Hospital network. Its medical director is licensed by the Medical Fitness Association, which means it’s the only medically licensed facility in Indiana, and one of 30 in the country. All trainers are also certified.

Yvette Dixon, the program and operations manager of Hancock Wellness Center, said that wellness is at the core of the exercise and rehabilitation programs offered at the facility.

“We try to focus on all components of wellness,” Dixon said. “Someone can eat well, but if they’re not exercising, they’re missing that component.”

Dixon said that the center will assign members a personal trainer to establish goals and set fitness plans, as well as answer any questions members have about their wellness. Trainers will check back with members every six months to monitor progress and adjust plans if necessary.

“We really try to have active ongoing engagement with our members,” Dixon said.

Dixon said that, although the facility will seem like a gym to most members, it will also rehabilitate patients who recently had surgery.

“When you walk in it looks very much like a gym,” Dixon said. “But we’ll have someone on a treadmill training for a marathon next to someone on a bike recovering from knee surgery.”

Prospective members that want to join the facility can sign up before its completion. The first 500 registrants will get 60 percent off their initial sign-up fee.
