Flex Fitness Gym opened their doors in North Kansas City in October 2021, transforming owner, Jason May's dreams of creating an old school, hard core gym with hand-picked unique equipment, that would be open 24/7 and affordable to all, into a reality. In addition to the gym, Flex offers personal training and nutrition plans for all fitness levels. Their business has grown by leaps and bounds, and less than 18 months later, they have expanded an additional 4,500 square feet. To celebrate this success and thank the North Kansas City community for their support, Flex will be hosting a launch party and ribbon cutting ceremony on Saturday, March 26th. The gym will be open to the community. IFBB (International Federation of BodyBuilding and Fitness) Pro Bodybuilder Hunter Labrada will be a guest.

North Kansas City Schools is home to 21,000 students and counting and is projected to grow by more than 1,500 students in the next five years. As the district grows, new facilities and upgrades are needed throughout the district. Additional support for staff will ensure the district continues to serve as Champions for all students, creating learning environments in which students can reach their maximum potential.

To make these proposed improvements a reality, NKC Schools asks voters to consider a zero tax increase levy transfer and $140 million bond issue on the April 5, 2022 ballot.

For more detailed information about the Zero Tax Increase Levy Transfer & Bond and to learn more about the proposed improvements, consider some frequently asked questions, and review the Ballot language, visit
