What is Life Time Fitness?

Life Time Fitness is a chain of high-end, mega-fitness centers or health club operating in Canada and the United States with headquarters in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Many of its large facilities operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and feature outdoor/indoor pools, salons, personal fitness instructors, large child centers, and food courts.

Membership Benefits:

  • There are several benefits that members will receive: Group Classes which give you access to programs and classes that focus on your interest, including swimming, group fitness, cycling and yoga. All classes are included in your membership price.
  • Life Time fitness’s large multi-level facilities have locker rooms and common areas that are typically outfitted with high-end materials, many utilizing natural stone giving members a high end and top quality experience and feel.
  • Unlike other gyms that make you wait, there are hundreds of exercise machines available so you don’t have to wait for someone to finish before you can start.
  • When you are done working out you can dry up with their free towels, and they also have saunas, steam rooms, and sofas where you can relax after your workout.
  • For many people though, the best thing about Life Time Fitness is that each location is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Positive Experiences

  • Joined three weeks ago.  My family and I really like this gym.  My youngest daughter likes the rock climbing walls.  They have good free weights and machines. Many aerobic machines (bikes, steppers etc.).  People range from beginners to advance like most gyms.  The pools are cool.
  • Love Life Time Fitness. The rock-climbing wall is tons of fun; there are great cardio and yoga classes; and of course, they have a cafe with awesome smoothies and entrees (all fresh/organic/etc). I’ve also gotten my hair cut in the salon with an excellent stylist. This place basically has everything.
  • I love this gym.  They replaced the station bike so there r all brand new now.  Always have a Treadmill available.  The bathroom is awesome.
  • One of the reasons I like living where I live is because of the proximity to Lifetime Fitness. The decor is luxurious but people are there to get fit and have fun. There are tons of cardio choices, weights and group fitness classes.
  • It’s super clean and very large. So many Cardio machines so you can always find a machine you want to work on. Very friendly staff and personal trainers. Wide variety of machines for all workouts. Great selection of free weight.

Negative Experiences

  • I will say this- nice gym, good amenities, expensive services, and aggressive up selling on things like fitness assessments and gear. Terrible customer service when it comes to membership services or dispute resolution.
  • Just called to get information on pricing girl on the phone said she didn’t have any information and told me she would connect me with a “Membership Advisor.” Next thing I know I’m being connected with somebody’s answering machine. Poor customer service in my opinion and too difficult to find prices.
  • I rated Lifetime in Cary 5 stars when I joined in 2011. But now, I think the management are crooks. We never missed a single month’s payment, yet they said we “terminated” our membership (we never did). And, if we want to “rejoin”, we will have to pay a new rate of ~$173, not our previous rate of ~$145.
  • This facility is operated by MANIPULATIVE GREEDY LIARS and they will steal your money. Be careful.
  • Several employees of Life Time Fitness took the firm to court regarding a matter of wage withholding during the year 2004. In 2009, a court ruled their favor in the case ofBaden-Winter wood v. Life Time Fitness Inc. with a judgment that employees must be paid in accordance with federal and state wage-and-hour laws which require overtime pay for hours worked in excess of 40 in a work week.
