Membership Services Director Spotlight….Tyler Lowther

Tyler Lowther is the newest addition to the Healthplex Fitness Center team at St. Barnabas. His role in the Bronx Community and the Healthplex will be a dual one.  As the HFC’s Membership Service Director Tyler will help the hospital’s staff begin their journey in wellness.  Tyler will also have a role as a personal trainer and will work with the Center’s Cabrini patients. The Cabrini Grant funds the wellness program and aims to combat chronic illnesses through exercise and nutrition. Tyler is personally committed to “give back” to members of the Bronx Community. He hopes to give the community access to life changing programs they are often left out of.
A native New Yorker, Tyler grew up in Brooklyn and was a competitive archer for over ten years. He was first introduced to archery while attending a youth summer camp in upstate New York. He fell in love with the sport at the age of 13 after participating in a weekend program for inner city kids taught by the Head Coach (also a Brooklynite) of Columbia University’s Varsity Archery Team. Tyler went on to win the first state national archery competition he entered in 2007, held in Nantasket Massachusetts. His stellar performances at the state level earned him a scholarship to Emmanuel College in Georgia, where he captained the varsity archery team for three years, leading them to a national silver medal in 2017 while earning his Bachelor’s of Science in Organizational Communication. Additionally, Tyler earned his personal training certification with the National Academy of Sports Science in 2019.
The sport of archery was Tyler’s introduction to the world of sports performance training. Archery taught him how to develop his mental and physical strength through dedicated training. In addition, it also instilled in him a passion and desire to give back which he is excited to put to practice at the Healthplex Fitness Center at St. Barnabas.

Hospital Based Fitness Center-St. Barnabas Health

Healthplex Associates  announces a new hospital-based fitness center in conjunction with St. Barnabas Health System. The 50,000 sf SBH Health and Wellness Center is opening in the Bronx later this spring. The Center offers a large rooftop garden for fresh vegetables. In addition, they are offering a fitness center and nutritional counseling. Thanks to several grants, the Healthplex will  help hundreds of area residents. Ultimately, the Center aims to show that population health management can make a difference for one of America’s most “at-risk” areas.

Healthplex Associates (HPA) consults with hospitals, health systems, foundations, and universities across the United States to create and manage clinically integrated fitness facilities. Healthplex Associates has developed unique programs to ensure the smooth transition from the clinical setting to the wellness center for people who need long term lifestyle management support for optimal health. HPA has achieved national leadership through innovation and our dedication to patients and clients.  

Our combined staff has now served over 400 clients ranging from large hospitals to smaller, community based rural hospitals.  We work exclusively with organizations ranging from healthcare systems, universities and foundations who are committed to a vision of improving the health and wellness of the community in which they serve.
