Nate and Kate Strehle own and operate the Core Health Club, located at 130 N. Main St. in West Point. Strehle, a 2008 graduate of Guardian Angels Central Catholic, played football at Wesleyan University in Nebraska, where he majored in health and fitness and received a minor in sports and facilities management.
âI had a passion for exercise and training,â Strehle said. As the youngest son of Rita and Greg Strehle with a sister and older brothers, âwe always played sports. We had fun competing with each other.
After graduating in 2012, he became a personal trainer at the Aspen Athletic Club in Omaha, then transferred to Kansas City in 2013. There he served as manager of two fitness clubs.
Strehle met his wife, Kate, who was taking a group fitness class.
âShe fell in love with group fitness and became a certified group instructor,â he said.
The couple married in September 2015 and moved to Omaha in December 2015, where Strehle was the general manager of Gold’s Gym. When Gold’s Gym was purchased by Genesis Health Club, Strehle continued with Genesis until the couple decided to return to West Point in October 2020.
âI have always had a passion for fitness. We started planning to open our own health club three years ago. We knew we wanted to come back to West Point to be closer to our family and raise our kids here, âhe said.
