LifeCenter Plus was opened to serve the health and fitness needs
of the local community, but it has become much more. A
well-trained, talented staff provides a mix of programs and
services that have made the Hudson, Ohio-based fitness center the
aquatics authority in the region.
Programs include synchronized swimming, water aerobics, lap
swimming, swim lessons and a swim team. Special events include an
annual cardboard boat race.
Managers pay special attention to maximize use of the entire
facility, which includes an indoor 25-meter, six-lane multipurpose
pool; an indoor warm-water therapy pool with a resistance river;
and three indoor spas. An outdoor aquatics complex features another
25-meter pool with several water slides; a zero-depth pool with
spray features and a round, 1-foot-deep wading pool.
With minor modifications of lane lines, ropes and floats, the
staff can meet the needs of young and old alike.
Regardless of the need or request, this facility finds a way to
flex its schedule and adapt programming to accommodate patrons.
By hiring “home-grown” talent, LifeCenter ensures
that guests will be treated with top-notch customer service.
Training also is key: The facility trains lifeguards and Water
Safety Instructors (WSI) for pools all over the community.
Operators also have trained more than 40 WSIs in adaptive training
workshops, enabling them to work with special-needs patrons around
Watching a guest’s dreams come true is a true testament to
the quality of the staff. For example, a group of women, ages 50 to
83, started practicing synchronized swimming at LifeCenter for
exercise. But thanks to the encouragement and support from facility
employees, the women have improved their skills so much that they
now make their own costumes and perform multiple synchronized
swimming shows annually.
