This includes the walking track, pools, cardiovascular and weight training equipment as well as a wide variety of group fitness classes.
“Regular physical activity is a key factor in the prevention of many chronic diseases that are a linked to obesity. We are so excited about giving the members of our community, who have never been in our wellness center, the chance to experience all of the different things they can do to get in their physical activity and hopefully start a habit that will last a lifetime,” said Miki Martin, LIFT Wellness Center Director.
According to James Ross, President and CEO of West Tennessee Healthcare, “It’s not just about taking care of you when you are sick. We are focused on keeping you well during all stages of life. We know that exercise and good nutrition are preventative medicine and the best medicine.”
