Anticipation is building as Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life Companysm (NYSE: LTM) nears completion on its first resort-like sports, professional fitness, family recreation and spa destination in Alabama. On February 23, Life Time Vestavia Hills will host an open house and meet and greet from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at its Preview Center located at 4851 Cahaba River Road to introduce all Life Time has to offer to the community. The new 105,000-square-foot facility will open in mid-April and boast a comprehensive array of programs and services that allow members to engage in their areas of passion—from personal training, weight loss and nutrition, to tennis, running, cycling, swimming and basketball, to yoga, Zumba and Pilates—and help them achieve success with their total health objectives, athletic aspirations and fitness goals. Additionally, Life Time Vestavia Hills will feature the company’s first outdoor Alpha Tower—a two-story workout station designed to increase strength, power, speed, endurance, agility, coordination and balance. “The excitement is definitely building in and around Vestavia Hills as we approach the opening of our first Life Time location in Alabama,” says Jeff Zwiefel, executive vice president and chief of operations. “Our General Manager, Sam Remus, and his team live and work in the community and are committed to exceeding all expectations of Vestavia Hills residents. We’re confident we’ve got the best programs and the best people in place to deliver a unique, healthy way of life destination for individuals, families and organizations. We can’t wait to open our doors and showcase all that we have to offer the Vestavia community.” More than 380 new positions will be added prior to the club’s opening. In recent weeks, Ellis Ferreira, a University of Alabama All-American and two-time Grand Slam Tennis Pro, has joined Life Time to lead the club’s preeminent tennis program. A special meet and greet with Ferreira is set for March 7 from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. for guests to learn more about all of Life Time‘s tennis offerings, from individual lessons to group leagues and tournaments.
