Member of the Month: Swan Stull

Posted Posted in Miller Center

March 30, 2018
The Miller Center for Recreation and Wellness salute our members with our Member of the Month feature. This month, we congratulate Swan Stull of Lewisburg. When Swan first met MCRW personal trainer Lis Reitz, she said she was looking for help with what she called her “jello-like muscles, iffy knees and bad back.” Swan elaborates, “Lis studied my problem, created a fitness program for me to strengthen my body, become core-strong, and be able to do maintenance at home or away.”
Swan loves working out at The Miller Center. “The Miller Center introduced me to a whole new level of state-of-the-art equipment! Tom Reitz taught me how to use the TRX equipment and I love it. Now Lis adds it to my workouts. I even bought one for home and travel use!”
“Lis also encouraged me to include exercise into my daily life, like parking as far away from the entrance as I can at a grocery or big box store, and walking the cart all the way back.” While Swan still experiences a problem now and then, the overall improvements have been dramatic. “Since Lis has created a flexible and dynamic workout for me, I am never bored and always feel stronger and happy. My knee is still arthritic and my vertebrae still ‘slip’, but we do exercises that strengthen rather than aggravate them. It is a challenging work-out, but the payoff is priceless.”
Swan credits Lis and Tom Reitz at The Miller Center for also improving her mood. “I am determined, have more energy, and have fun becoming physically and mentally healthier. Miller Center and Lis rock! Fist bumps all around!”
Fist bump, to you too, Swan! We’re so happy that you’re feeling well and we’ll see you back here at The Miller Center.
For being our April 2018 Member of the Month, Swan will receive a $25 gift certificate to our Cornerstone Kitchen, a Miller Center water bottle, and a reserved parking spot.
To nominate one of our members or employees to be recognized, please send an email to Robin Barth at robin.barth@millerrec.org.

American Red Cross Blood Drive

Posted Posted in Miller Center

Give blood and help save lives at The Miller Center!

WHEN: Thursday, May 17th from 10:00 AM-3:00 PM

WHERE: The Miller Center on Court 1

F.A.Qs

Who can donate?

Individuals who are 17 years of age or older, meet weight and height requirements (110 pounds or more) and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood.

How long does it take?

When appointments are made in advance, the process takes about an hour. The actual donation takes about eight to 10 minutes. The actual donation time for a double red cell donation is slightly longer and takes about an hour and a half from start to finish. Time is needed for registration, a mini-physical and health history interview, and refreshments following your donation.

How much blood is taken?

For blood donations, a little less than a pint of blood is drawn. Your body will replace the fluid loss in about 24 hours. Red blood cell replacement will begin immediately but will take place four to six weeks for completion.

How will I feel after donating?

Most people feel just fine. Eating a balanced meal and drinking plenty of fluids before your donation, thinking positively about your donation and knowing what to expect will all help. Regular activity can be resumed following the donation, although you should avoid heavy lifting for the remainder of the day.

For more information, contact Emily Long at emily.long@millerrec.org or call The Miller Center at (570)556-4191
