MEET OUR STAFF
Hailee Bland-Walsh is the Owner and Founder of City Gym. She grew up in a suburb of KC and moved away for college in 1998. After playing Division I and professional soccer, Hailee moved to San Francisco where she started her fitness career as a personal trainer and group fitness instructor. There she worked her way up, managing some of the Bay Area’s biggest gyms.
In August of 2010, Hailee was home visiting her family when her sister said, “You should move home and open a gym!” That comment set off a dream that would become City Gym and in November 2010, she moved back to KC to work on starting City Gym. By August of 2011, City Gym opened our doors.
In addition to City Gym, Hailee is the co-Founder of Fit Truk, a fully equipped, mobile, outdoor, smart gym and co-Host of web series, Behind The Bar.
She is also an active volunteer, LGBTQ activist, speaker, writer, outdoor enthusiast, downhill skier, runner, amateur gardener, super Auntie, and rescue animal mom.
“With over twenty years as a fitness professional, I am passionate about connecting people to their bodies. My fitness mantra is that when people connect to their very best selves and accomplish goals they never thought possible–through fitness, powerful positive shifts happen in all aspects of their lives.”

Katie has served as General Manager of City Gym since 2016. She oversees the day-to-day operations of the facility and provides supervision and support to the management team. Katie also oversees the vibrant group-exercise program we have here at City Gym. In addition to her internal responsibilities, she is charged with pursuing and vetting external growth opportunities that involve partnerships and off-site programming.
Katie has been involved in fitness/sports in some capacity for her entire life. She graduated from Benedictine College with a degree in Sports Management in 1994, then began a 20 year career with Johnson County Park and Recreation. For the majority of her time with that organization, she served as the Executive Director of Kansas City Corporate Challenge. In this role she managed the coordination of sporting events for over 200 area businesses and their 30,000 program participants.
Katie was a member long before working here at the gym— she joined City Gym the weekend we opened our doors in 2011. IIn Katie’s free time she hangs out with her very cool husband Brian and their two children, Charlie and Marykate. They are always doing something fun such as attending sporting events, concerts, enjoying the outdoors or spending time with family and friends. A few fun facts about Katie — she and her son share a birthday and she lives in a home that has been in her family for over 60 years!
Member Services Manager
Kristin is the Membership Services Manager at City Gym. She’s the software expert and keeps everyone’s ongoing memberships in line and operating correctly. She also keeps things going smoothly for (and with) the front desk staff and runs a mean report when asked. (When she’s doing her job well, you shouldn’t even notice),
Kristin has a degree in Anthropology and has a strong background in creating community. She’s been at City Gym for longer than she’s lived in one place. She was born in the 5th largest Portland (in Indiana) and started moving soon after. Kristin has a one-of-a-kind-personality and loves the opportunity to be radically authentic within a business setting at City Gym.
