Employee Spotlight

Haley Thompson
Haley Thompson is one of LIFT's newest degreed and certified Exercise Specialist. She recently passed her test to acquire her Exercise Physiologist certification through ACSM. She joined our team about 2 ½ months ago. Prior to that, you may have seen her working around LIFT wearing an INTERN shirt. Haley finished her internship with LIFT prior to graduating from Memphis University with a degree in Exercise, Sport, and Movement Science. It was an easy decision to hire Haley from an intern position to a LIFT employee. Haley has a pure and compassionate heart. She genuinely cares about everyone and everything. You rarely see Haley without a smile. Join us in congratulating Haley on a job well done and help us welcome her into the LIFT family.                      - Kent Schott, Fitness Manager

Terissa Rutherford

Terissa joined LIFT in 2015 with goals of improving her overall health. She started working out at her own pace on the fitness floor downstairs at LIFT but eventually made her way upstairs to the Group Exercise classes! She was sure it would only be a one time thing she would try but she quickly fell in love with the group exercise classes! She was afraid she wouldn't be able to keep up, but she realized she was able to workout at her own pace and challenge herself! Terissa not only has exceeded her weight loss goal but she also lowered her blood pressure, cholesterol  & diabetes numbers! 

"It was like my whole body changed for the best and now there is no way working out at LIFT can be replaced!"

We are so proud Terissa found her passion at LIFT and she also changed her life! 
We are so excited to welcome Syrena Flowers to the LIFT leadership team. Syrena will be serving in the role of Membership Manager. Her responsibilities include oversight of member services (front desk), café, massage, and childcare. Syrena,  with the assistance of Dustin Warren, Membership and Retention Coordinator, will be onboarding all new members when they join the LIFT family. Syrena's health and wellness background, along with her personal passion for fitness, make her the perfect fit for this role.
Please join me in welcoming Syrena!
