Life Time expands – opens premium lifestyle club in Houston

US-based health and racquets club operator Life Time has opened a new premium facility at the Baybrook retail mall in Houston, Texas.

The huge, 255,000sq ft (23,700sq m) Life Time Athletic Baybrook club features a large gym floor with more than 400 cv and resistance stations and dedicated studios for both one-on-one and group fitness – including indoor cycling, yoga and Pilates.

There is also an indoor swimming pool and The Zone, a dedicated space for athletic performance and recovery – featuring metabolic assessments, nutrition coaching, sports and athletic recovery treatments.

Wellness facilities include LifeSpa, a full-service day spa and salon.

Outdoor facilities include a large tennis complex featuring eight hard surface courts, an aquatic center with lap and leisure pools, spa pools, slides and an outdoor bistro.

The opening is part of Life Time's plans to strengthen its position in the premium fitness segment and follows the opening of Life Time Athletic Cypress – also in Houston – in June.

According to Clarence Latson, general manager of Life Time Athletic Baybrook, Houston – the fourth most populous city in the US with 2.3 million residents – is a major growth market for the company.

"We are thrilled with the continued growth within the Houston market and look forward to serving the community and our members with a broad array of health, wellness, nutrition, relaxation and entertainment services and programmes."

The opening of Life Time Athletic Baybrook increases the number of sites in the company's North American portfolio to 141.
