Hi. I’m Diane Kelton, President of Baptist Health/Milestone Wellness Center. I’m in a unique position to tell you about Milestone. Because long before I came to work here, I was a member.

Looking to exercise

I have fought weight issues since my early childhood years.  When I graduated from high school I was 50-60 pounds overweight.  I lost most of this weight while in college through healthier food choices but knew I needed to add exercise to my life if I was to maintain my weight loss long-term.  I had never been an exerciser nor very active.  After visiting Milestone, I was struck by how supportive the staff was, in particular Sue Schonberger, who is still our Group Exercise Director.  Sue and the other staff showed a genuine interest in helping me create and stick to a plan that has enabled me to become a regular exerciser for 25 years now.

That made all the difference for me – and it can make all the difference for you, too. I’d like to share just a few of the many things that set Milestone apart and make it an excellent choice for your fitness club.

More than 25 years of excellence

In an industry where fitness clubs tend to come and go, our roots go back more than 25 years.

The original Milestone Fitness Center opened in 1984. After 15 years of success, the center partnered with Baptist Hospital East and moved to ourcurrent location off Bowling Boulevard, behind The Mall St. Matthews.

Hospital affiliation

The partnership with Baptist Hospital East is part of what makes us truly a center for wellness. Here, you have access not only to a full array of fitness classes, programs and equipment, but also to on-site physical therapy and post-rehabilitation services to expedite your recovery from injury or help manage disease. We also offer health and fitness seminars taught by experts.

A comfortable atmosphere for all

As someone who never considered myself athletic and never exercised regularly prior to joining Milestone, I know it can be intimidating to join a fitness center.  

If you shop around, I think you’ll find that the facilities and benefits you enjoy as a Milestone member are unrivaled in Louisville. You’ll work with professional and passionate staff members, many of whom have been with us for years.

But what I am most proud of is the fact that we have been able to create a welcoming place for all ages and populations, regardless of fitness level. It’s a place where people are truly comfortable and get the help they need to succeed.

I’d like to personally invite you to sign up for a free mini-membership at Baptist Health/Milestone Wellness Center today. Come meet our staff, check us out and enjoy yourself!
