Meridian Health and Tilton Announce Opening of Sales Office for New Meridian Fitness & Wellness Club in Jackson

Tilton Fitness, operators of the Meridian Fitness & Wellness club currently under development in Jackson, has announced the opening of the club's sales office at 715 Bennetts Mills Road in Jackson. The new sales office, located across from Wawa in the Manhattan Street Plaza in Jackson, is providing information and enrolling members for the new fitness center, expected to open in late 2013.

The new Meridian Fitness & Wellness club will offer over 30,000 square feet of fitness space and amenities, including Spin rooms, an Olympic-sized pool, a Kids Club childcare area and a Recovery Zone Juice bar. There will also be a complete selection of state-of-the-art fitness equipment and a wide variety of group fitness classes, including Yoga, Pilates, Zumba, Spin and many more. Members will also benefit from expert personal and small group training offerings to suit every age group and all levels of fitness.

"We are very proud to be partnering with Meridian Health in developing what will be an extraordinary new fitness facility," said Tilton Fitness President Sam Young. "We are looking forward to serving the residents of Jackson and surrounding communities, as well as employees of Meridian Health. The opening of the sales office signifies that we will be doing that in the very near future."

The club will be part of the 150,000 square foot Meridian Health Village, which is also currently under development and slated to open later this year. Meridian Health Village is a "one stop shopping" destination for health and wellness, bringing together primary and urgent care, advanced medical and surgical specialists, imaging and laboratory services, and fitness and wellness care. This state-of-the-art medical and wellness facility will offer both private health care services and services that are traditionally limited to locations within hospitals all under one roof in an easily accessible environment.
