The Mettler Release
Gear Up For Summer at Mettler
 
Greetings!

Mettler Center is pleased to announce that our new equipment, which include four treadmills and three ellipticals, has finally arrived! Your response to the new equipment has been overwhelming, and we really appreciate your support.


We're well aware the equipment was to be delivered in January, and we'd like to apologize for any inconveniences and frustrations this may have caused. Several part suppliers for Star Trac went out of business, and many OrthoTech (our distributor) shipments were delayed.

We were in contact with the OrthoTech president throughout the process, and he also expresses his apologies for the delay in getting our new equipment to us.


We hope you'll stop by the Mettler Center in the coming weeks to try out our new equipment as you continue on your journey to Whole Life Fitness.

High school athletes looking to get a jumpstart on fall sports can work out with the coaches at Mettler Athletic.

Designed for young competitors, Mettler's conditioning programs develop the whole athlete, teaching agility and stamina alongside strength. Each program also focuses on technique.

Our coaches assess the demands that your specific sport makes on your body and target those areas. Progressive conditioning adds strength and stability to key joints and muscles to get athletes ready for the season's wear and tear.

Additionally, our coaches teach movement mechanics, injury prevention, and flexibility. Mettler's approach is integrated for the total athlete, so you'll boost your performance no matter your sport, gender, or ability level.

Each of our coaches is a former college or professional athlete in the sport which he or she coaches. Each of our coaches is a great teacher who has experience working with athletes of various ages.

Each of the following sports performance programs begin the week of June 14th and run eight weeks. They are open to athletes between the ages of 13-18. Tennis Athleticism is available for children 12-18.

of the Month
Did you know that snacking is on the rise? Seventy-five percent of men and women eat at least one snack a day.

When choosing a snack, remember that what you eat and how much is far more important than when you eat.
