Employee Spotlight
Dustin Warren
Dustin Warren is the friendly face you will see first thing in the morning if you like to exercise to start your day!

Dustin has been with West Tennessee Healthcare for over seven years and a part of the LIFT Wellness Center family for a year and a half. Prior to joining the LIFT staff, he served in the Emergency Department at Jackson Madison Country General Hospital. 

Dustin's role as a Member Services Associate is to greet each member coming in the door, check everyone in, assist guests who are new to the facility and input all member and guest related data in the computer system. Dustin is always willing to lend a hand wherever needed to help things run smoothly here at the LIFT! Even if that means changing members tires early in the morning! 

In his spare time Dustin loves to play golf and he has a passion for people and fitness. Dustin also enjoys spending time with his family and friends. His dogs Hank and Bobo, are big part of his life as well.

Thank you Dustin for all you do to make the LIFT Wellness Center a great place to be!

Dale Childress

Dale joined LIFT Wellness Center in August of 2016 for lap swimming. Little did he know how important it would be to his life and health every day. He strives to bring hope, peace & joy to everyone he comes in contact with. In January of 2018 he started cancer treatments again and he's so thankful he has had the LIFT family to lean on. He states "I am constantly challenged & encouraged by the members even when I don't feel like swimming laps."
"I've always been a positive person, but seeing people literally giving it all they have to improve their lives, has lifted me up spiritually & emotionally in ways that's hard to describe. LIFT isn't a place exclusive to body building, it is a holistic place to improve your life."

Dale states that meeting amazing people at LIFT, that are facing their own life challenges has helped him through his journey. He also says that the misconceptions of gyms is that you will not fit in, but at LIFT everyone fits in! 

Dale, we are so thankful for your story and your daily inspiration!

April is All about Walking
As the weather begins to warm up, it is a great time to talk about just how great walking can be as an exercise.

It is widely known that Americans (in general) don't get enough physical activity. Our transportation systems have become so streamlined that the need to walk from place to place has all but disappeared. This is likely one of the reasons that 2 out of every 3 American adults now qualifies as overweight or obese.

Walking remains an excellent form of exercise. It's free, requires no special skills, and can decrease the development of risk factors associated with chronic diseases such as heart disease, some types of cancer, or diabetes.

To take advantage of the substantial health benefits walking has to offer, adults need to walk for at least 150 minutes a week, that's about 25 minutes a day! If you are someone who gets less physical activity than that right now, getting in that 25 minutes through walking can result in enormous health benefits.

If you're looking for support to make lifestyle changes and lose weight, call LIFT Weight Management. 731-425-6820

Group Exercise

Equipment  Etiquette
Please help us keep all equipment in working order by treating it like it's your own.

Things to know:
  • The sauna is not a steam room...pouring excessive amounts of water over the rocks causes the rocks to crumble. Pouring more than half a ladle of water over the rocks can cause rocks to crumble, thus shutting down the sauna until repairs are made.

Steam Room:
  • The steam room has an emergency shut off button (red). This is to shut down the steam room in case of emergencies. It does not produce more steam.

Exercise Equipment:  
  • It is important to wear proper workout attire while using equipment.
  • Blue jeans can cause upholstery to wear down prematurely.
  • Hard sole shoes can cause cardio equipment and gym floor to wear out early as well. 
  • Do not drop or bang weights together. Dumbbells are not made to be dropped. You will get a better eccentric contraction by lowering the weights under control. If you have to drop the weight, chances are the weight is too heavy. Avoid clanging of weights in the pin selected equipment area. You should always keep resistance on the muscle during each rep. Meaning the weights should not touch until you are finished with a full set.

  • It is important to wash all oils/perfumes/dirt from body prior to entering our pools. If wearing a shirt or shorts...please make sure it is of dry-fit material.
  • Cotton can cause clogging of the filter system.

  • Wall balls/medicine balls/basketballs are not slam balls. Please use the blue slam balls for slamming.
  • Basketballs are for basketball only. Do not slam, kick, or throw against brick wall.
  • No dunking/hanging on the rims/climbing nets.
Following these recommendations will help us keep LIFT Wellness Center and our equipment in excellent working condition.
Thank you for helping us help you.

This April, every 2 Facebook check-ins or reviews at LIFT Wellness Center will provide a minute of therapy to a child with autism! We're working with Causely and The Autism Site to make it happen. You can add #autismawareness to promote the cause. For more information about this month's charity, check out

P.S. If you haven't heard of Sweat Angels, here's how it works... Sweat Angels makes a donation to a great cause every time our members check-in on Facebook. Thousands of gyms use Sweat Angels, and that's why they're able to make such a large impact each month. If you need some help checking in on Facebook, just stop by the front desk and we'll show you how!
