What We’re Doing to Help Keep You Safe**
The safety of our members and team members is what’s most important. Life Time has always been dedicated to delivering a healthy way of life to our communities, and with a carefully planned and phased approach, we will begin to reopen. Each of us will play an important role in making your club a safe experience for us all.
Preparing to Welcome You
In accordance with governmental orders and guidelines, Life Time is taking extra precautions to help our communities stay safe and healthy. This includes extensive cleaning protocols and social distancing practices within each of our destinations.
A Comprehensive Approach
We continue to follow stringent sanitation protocols for proper disinfection, operation and maintenance, as well as adding additional procedures to achieve a new level of cleanliness.
- Continuous scheduled disinfection of high-touch surfaces throughout the club
- Club hours adjusted to allow for overnight deep cleaning
- Team members receive ongoing training on cleaning protocols and are provided with disinfecting kits
- Easy, readily available equipment disinfectant spray
- Hand-sanitizing stations are conveniently located throughout the club
You will likely notice increased spacing between equipment and within workout areas to allow for appropriate social distancing.
Group fitness classes will require reservations, and schedules will be adjusted to be consistent with governmental orders and guidelines and to allow for thorough cleaning between classes.
Increased Kids Spaces
To help our children practice social distancing, we will dedicate other areas of the club for playtime, classes will be adjusted to be consistent with governmental orders and guidelines, and we will require reservations for all ages.
Taking Care — For Us All
Consistent with your local government guidelines, members and team members may be encouraged or required to wear masks. Team members may also undergo temperature checks at home or prior to each shift. Additionally, you may notice we have adapted the club environment by installing shields, enabling touchless transactions and employing additional measures to help ensure proper social spacing.
Enhancing Air Quality
We are committed to meeting or exceeding the latest air circulation and filtration guidelines and are updating our HVAC systems, including integrating high-quality MERV 13 air filters in select, smaller spaces within our clubs. These filters are designed to capture up to 98% of microparticles from the air, including bacteria and droplets like those released in a sneeze. Your safety is our top priority. Bryan Janowiec, Vice President of Facility Operations at Life Time, walks through these extensive health and safety updates we’ve made.
