A familiar face to Boone County Fitness Center goers, Melinda Johnson, has recently been named manager at the center.
Johnson is married to Denny Johnson. Together, they have three daughters: Alexa, Blayr and Cabre.

Before becoming manager, Johnson was assistant manager since 2013. Before that, she worked part-time at the center.
Johnson said one of the biggest recent changes at the Fitness Center has been the hiring of two assistant managers, Torrance Damgaard and Heather Rankin, who will be filling many of the evening hours to accommodate members’ needs.

“I am excited to see what new ideas they have to bring to the fitness center. Torrance will be gaining certification in personal training in the future, and Heather will bring her past knowledge of working at the center,” Johnson said. “We will still have our part-time help, which we couldn’t appreciate more. They do a fantastic job and care about the facility. They make sure our members and those who just come in for the day are taken care of, along with the duties of everyday cleaning.”
