About the Owners
D.L. and Diana Patton, both born and raised in Marshall, became members when the gym opened its doors for business in 1986. Star Fitness has always been important in their lives. Both D.L. and their oldest daughter worked for prior owners since 2005. In September 2013, D.L. and Diana were offered the opportunity to own Star Fitness. They knew it was meant to be when they attended their 25th class reunion in October 2013 and saw a banner in which Diana had written on graduation night that they would own a fitness center some day.
D.L. is the PhysEd and Health teacher at Mar Lee School and works evenings at Star Fitness. Diana manages the fitness center during the day and works evenings when needed. Their oldest daughter (a special education teacher), her husband (physical therapist), and granddaughter live outside of the area. Their son (a barber at Scooter's Barber Shop in Marshall) and his wife (nurse) live in Battle Creek, Their youngest daughter (college student) is involved with Star Fitness by cleaning the facility and working the counter occasionally.
On June 24, 2017, Diana was nationally qualified for the NPC Women's Physique Division by taking first place in both OPEN WPD and MASTERS WPD at the NPC Northern Indiana Bodybuilding championships in South Bend, IN. She trained with her husband, DL, who also coached her with her nutrition and workout plans. Diana then competed nationally July 24, 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA. Both Diana and DL enjoy greatly helping others with their fitness journey.
