Tonya Mutter

Tonya joined the Exercise is Medicine program at LIFT Wellness Center in 2018. She was recovering from a year of daily sciatic pain due to a herniated disk. Many days she could not even tie her shoes and struggled to pick up a piece of paper from the floor. 
Now Tonya enjoys participating in Margie Karl's Power Pilates & Overdrive classes! She even claimed they are her favorite! Tonya says she may not be able to master every pose or segment but she still tries and if needed modifies. 
When Tonya first started she could not do a plank, run or jump without pain but now she can! She has lost 25lbs and gained endurance, strength, flexibility, and more. Tonya says she has gained confidence and friendships at LIFT Wellness Center! 
Before Tonya joined the EiM program she was shy and introverted but gaining confidence has helped her with that! 
Tonya says coming to LIFT even if it's just to walk the track it brightens her day and helps change her mood and outlook!
She has felt encouraged in more than just exercise. Tonya is now going back to school to get her degree! 
She loves the staff and clientele! Also, she brags on the cleaning staff and how clean our facility is!

March is National Nutrition Month

Today about half of all American adults have one or more chronic diseases, often related to poor diet. The 
2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans emphasizes the importance of creating a healthy eating pattern to maintain health and reduce the risk of disease. Everything we eat and drink-the food and beverage choices we make day to day and over our lifetime-matters. 

The right mix can help you be healthier now and in the future. Start with small changes to make healthier choices you can enjoy. Find your healthy eating style and maintain it for a lifetime. 

This means:
  • Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
    • Focus on whole fruits
    • Vary your vegetables
    • Make half your grains whole grains.
    • Move to low-fat and fat-free milk or yogurt.
    • Vary your protein routine.
    • Drink and eat less sodium, saturated fat, and added sugars.

Need nutritional advice? Has the doctor recommended you see a dietitian? Trying to make the switch to a healthier diet?
The LIFT Wellness Center can help.
At the LIFT, we believe the more you know, the better you can feel. We have a Registered Dietitian on staff to assist you with all of your nutritional needs. No matter how active you are, unless you are refueling with the proper nutrition, you will never reach your health and wellness goals.
We offer one-on-one and group consultations through our nutritional consultations.

Happy National Registered Dietitian Day to Abby Mays, RD!

  • March 16th 
  • 10:30am-12:00pm
  • $3 Members
  • $5 Non Members
  • Benefits: SOCM-benefiting at risk youth

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 March, every Facebook check-in or review at LIFT Wellness Center will provide a vitamin to a child in need! We're working with Causely and Vitamin Angels to make it happen. You can add #vitamins4kids when you post 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!
