GENEVA – The Stephen Persinger Recreation Center , 3507 Kaneville Road, Geneva, marked its 10 anniversary in October, by promoting new membership specials, officials announced in a news release.

Called BESTLife Fitness – at the Persinger center or Sunset Community Center, 710 Western Ave., Geneva – those who sign up for a 12-month commitment will pay $10 for their first-month dues, $10 for a personal training session and get $10 in BestLife Bucks.

The specials are available through Oct. 28, the release stated.

The Geneva Park District built the Persinger center to better serve its growing west side population, “to provide more programming space – specifically gym space,” Geneva Park District Executive Director Sheavoun Lambillotte stated in an email.

“And to engage our community in a healthier lifestyle with the addition of the fitness center and indoor track,” Lambillotte stated in the email. “This decision was based on information collected over multiple surveys and focus groups dating back to 2000.”

It cost $10 million to build and was named after Stephen Persinger, who served the district for 30 years, Lambillotte’s email stated.

More than 120,000 people visit the center each year, which has almost 3,000 members, Recreation Superintendent Nicole Vickers state in an email.
