A pair of fitness trainers who struck out on their own after working at commercial gyms have opened a new business, Crossroads Training, in the River Market at 510 Delaware.

Adam Carney and Kristen Jukes met each other working at a franchise fitness center and  wanted to open a smaller place with a more personal touch to strength and conditioning training.

“We wanted to do this full time with each other because we have a good dynamic,” Carney said.

“We’re about personable and personal training. Most of our clients are working age people who want to stay healthy and strong. Kristin and I are into functional strength and conditioning.”

Carney received a degree in kinesiology exercise physiology from Kansas State and Jukes is a certified trainer.

Their Crossroads Training space occupies about 850 square feet in the basement level of 510 Delaware. It’s one of two new businesses opening in the building which is located on the streetcar line.

The other is Coworking KC which took over the 8,000 square feet on the first floor formerly occupied by Plexpod. Plexpod consolidated its operations in the Flashcube apartment building at 720 Main.

Carney said the partners specialize in individual training and small groups, and provide fitness training to a range of clients, including people in their 60s and even one octogenarian.

“Our program is designed to help you age gracefully,” he said.

The pair previously had a space at 20th and Walnut in the Crossroads District and decided to keep the name when they relocated to Delaware Street.

“There’s a decent amount of housing density in the River Market and we like it aesthetically,” Carney said. “It’s also a central location.”

Hours are Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m., and on Tuesdays and Thursdays its hours extend to 7 p.m.
