Employee Spotlight

John Tyler

Thanks to John, Bob's Janitorial Staff, for going above and beyond to help a member. John noticed one of our members who had not been in a while and found out he had been in the hospital. John encouraged this member to come back and noticed again that the member was struggling to walk from the locker room to his car. John has been going and bringing the member's car around to the side of the building and helping him to his car so that he can continue to come to LIFT. 


John, we are so grateful for people like you! Thanks for all that you do for LIFT Wellness Center!

Sharon wrote "I have been overweight since my freshman year of college in 1982. I have  previously dieted and worked out but wasn't  consistent . I would lose and gain repeatedly through the years. I told myself that I dod not want to join a gym because I did not have the "gym body" and people would look at me. I used a guest pass and promptly decided to join. I never thought I would say I loved coming to the gym to work out, but I do! The staff is incredible. I love it here! "

Sharon has been a member for over a year and has lost 100lbs since joining LIFT! 

Sharon also stated that the staff was very helpful and was always available for her questions!

We are so proud of your success Sharon and we are are even more proud you chose LIFT Wellness Center!

Group Exercise

Attire at LIFT
The LIFT Wellness Center requires appropriate athletic attire in all areas of the facility.  These standards include shirts, shorts, pants, and athletic shoes.  In order to prevent tearing the vinyl and scratching the equipment, please refrain from wearing denim with metal brads or decoration in the exercise area.
Men must wear shirts covering the nipples and abdomen. For women, sports bras are not to be worn alone, but under a tank top or t-shirt that covers the abdomen.
All swim apparel must be nylon, acrylic, or polyester including shorts and shirts worn into the water.  In order to prevent damage to the pool filter system, cotton or denim shorts or shirts are prohibited from being worn in the pool.
Footwear restrictions will be strictly enforced for your safety.  Shoes must be worn in all areas except for the locker rooms, pool areas, and certain group exercise classes.   For the safety and wellbeing of our members, no open-toe shoes or sandals are permitted in the fitness area or gymnasium.  Members and guests are highly advised to wear non-slip shoes around the pool area to reduce the risk of slipping, and aquatic shoes are  encouraged in the pools. 

During July, every check-in at LIFT Wellness Center will provide 50 gallons of clean drinking water to someone in need. We're working with Causely and H2OpenDoors to make it happen. You can add #givewater when you check in 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!

Did you know you can add on hot stones to your massage?
Combining  hot stone  with a full body  massage  provides a very healing and effective experience. The  hot stones  also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The  hot stones  have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
