Tilton Fitness is the area’s premier health club, offering about 90 group exercise classes a week and many amenities such as pool, sauna, steam room and personal training, specializing in weight loss. We also have child care as well as a kids fit program, and some locations are open 24-7.
We have corporate partnerships with about 120 local companies, through which we offer various wellness programs. We have four area locations: Galloway Township, Northfield, Mays Landing and at the Ocean Club in Stafford Township. We’ve opened in Monmouth County, and have a location in Ocean County that will open in the fall.
As membership director, I enjoy getting our new members off to a great start toward their fitness goals. I work with the sales teams at each location. We do staff development and training, make sure our monthly outreach plan is on track, and strategize on how to bring in new members. We also stay on top of industry trends to bring the best product to our members.
Entry: I graduated from Cortland and wanted to be a physical education and health teacher, and a coach. My vision through college was to help rid the world of childhood obesity. I found that you can teach high school kids as much as you want about eating right and exercise, but really it starts with mom and dad.
I worked on weight loss with adults in South Florida, and my husband’s work brought us to New Jersey. I was a member at the Northfield Tilton Fitness first and thought it would be a great place to work, so I asked for a job. I started as a part-time trainer and membership representative, and I found the membership work motivating and rewarding.
Career goals: I like the health club atmosphere and being a key factor in people taking care of themselves. I want to stay in the health and fitness industry in whatever capacity I can help as many people as I can.
About me: I really enjoy hiking and being outdoors. We have a cabin in the Adirondacks in upstate New York where I love to snowshoe, and fish and ski and have lots of family time.
