Evangelical Community Hospital to Permanently Close Fitness Center

May 08, 2017


Evangelical Community Hospital’s Fitness Center will be permanently closing on June 30, 2017, ending all gym-related services.

“Fulfilling the fitness and wellness needs of the community for the last 13 years through the work of the Evangelical Fitness Center has been extremely rewarding for both the members and the staff,” said Elisabeth Reitz, Fitness Center Coordinator.

Any current member with questions about membership or payments should call 570-524-2600. The Hospital will continue to offer education and healthy lifestyle services that are not gym-related through Evangelical Community Health and Wellness.

The Miller Center for Recreation and Wellness (MCRW) has announced plans to open an 18,500-square-foot fitness center as part of its new facility that will be located at 120 Hardwood Drive, Lewisburg.

“We are excited to have recruited Evangelical’s exceptional fitness instructors to join us at the Miller Center,” said Jim Mathias, Executive Director of MCRW. “In our new state-of-the-art facility, they will continue to offer innovative group classes and personal training experiences.” 

The MCRW fitness center will feature top-of-the-line cardiovascular, strength, and conditioning equipment by Precor and Technogym incorporating the latest in exercise design technology and user-friendly features, including flat screens for live TV, internet access, music, and a variety of workout display options. Separate rooms for group fitness, cycling, and mind/body practices will be available, along with extensive space for personal training. The highly-trained and experienced staff will oversee individual and small group sessions in designated areas specially equipped for everything from functional training to improve mobility or injury recovery to high performance training for serious athletes.

Other notable features of the new fitness center will be extended hours of operation, drop-in child care and play space, and a healthy choice café.
