WICHITA — Rodney Steven II is at it again.

He's added two more health clubs to his 28-year-old Genesis Health Clubs chain, this time in Springfield, Mo.

Steven has purchased his friend Dan Martin's two Ozark Fitness Centers in Springfield.

"The clubs are so similar to ours," Steven says. "It's just a very similar marriage for us."

This brings his total to 15 clubs in Kansas and Missouri, including five in Wichita.

"Dan's been a good friend for a lot of years," Steven says.

"He's kind of an industry veteran. Warrior, actually," Steven says. "He started out in just a little garage."
