About Fusion


Fusion Fitness believes everyone deserves to look and feel their best. Founded by KC fitness guru Darby Brender, she created the ultimate workout to challenge the entire body in one hour. “We have developed a system that will transform your body by elongating your muscles, decreasing body fat, improving cardiovascular endurance as well as increase flexibility.”

Fusion’s classes are totally different from traditional group exercise which focus on building major muscle groups. Fusion puts a focus on strengthening all the muscles in your body, big and small – finding muscles you may have never even thought about (I can be sore there?!)

From her first studio in Overland Park opened in 2008, Fusion has grown to include two additional locations (Mission Farms and Corbin Park), as well as our popular Fusion Fly indoor cycling studio inside of our Overland Park location – KC’s first boutique spin studio.

On top of providing “the most challenging fitness classes in the Midwest,” which we happily uphold, Fusion has created an amazing community of support, positivity and closeness unmatched by traditional gyms. Clients build new friendships, depend on one another for strength and encouragement, and feel very at home from their first class.

Aside from our traditional classes, Fusion is also home to our uplifting Weight Loss Boot Camp and AmpCamp programs – to date, shedding over 6,000 pounds off of Kansas City. There really is nothing like the camaraderie clients find in each other and in our dedicated instructors – helping women lose weight, learn to overcome their past and initiate huge changes in their habits, abilities, and finding a source of confidence previously untapped in their lives.

Offering over 100 classes per week throughout our three locations, Fusion is trendy, fun, and cutting-edge – constantly creating new moves to Shock Your Body and keep your interest piqued.

To reach our influence outside of Kansas City, Fusion Fitness created the Dream Body DVD in 2011 – a fast moving, fun, fitness phenomenon designed to sculpt bodies in no time. Dream Body was named a Top Fitness Video by Fab Fit Fun and was featured by fitness blogger MizFit as “one of the top five most challenging workouts.”

On the heels of Dream Body’s success, Darby created the Dream Body Series 5 DVD set in 2012 – a combination of Barre, Fusion Mix, Fusion, Tabata and Toning and Bikini Bootcamp.

In 2013 Fusion Fitness released their second 5-Set, Dream Body Cardio Series, with five of their most popular and challenging cardio classes – and landed on the pages of Shape Magazine. Fusion Bump was also released in 2013, offering a less intense, yet still challenging, workout for moms to be.

From our videos sold worldwide to our constant schedule of hard working instructors and clients, Fusion is a unique experience and we’d love to introduce you to your new favorite place to be.
