MISSISSAUGA, Ont.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Life Time Fitness, Inc. (NYSE:LTM), the Healthy Way of Life Company, today announced the planned March 2012 opening of its newest destination in Mississauga, Ontario, marking the Company’s first location in Canada.

The massive, 143,000 square foot Life Time Athletic Mississauga boasts a comprehensive array of sports and athletics, family recreation and entertainment, professional fitness and spa programs and services designed to engage members in their areas of interest while helping them to set and achieve their total health objectives, athletic aspirations and fitness goals. Located at 3105 Unity Drive #22 (telephone: 905-363-0200), a preview center, offering consumers more information and special membership opportunities, now is open.

In addition to 24-hour access to more than 400 pieces of state-of-the-art cardiovascular and resistance training equipment, multiple dedicated group exercise, pilates, cycle, and LifePower Yoga studios, Life Time Athletic Mississauga’s team of certified personal trainers, nutrition coaches, group fitness instructors and services team helps members establish personalized goals and objectives, and guide them to success.

For companies looking for effective ways to reduce escalating health care costs while supporting measurable change with their employees, Life Time Mississauga also will offer myHealthCheck, a comprehensive health assessment that identifies risk factors, promotes ongoing guidance with wellness coaches and a 12-month reassessment to measure progress against the plan.

“We are excited to bring our unique, family-oriented Healthy Way of Life destination to the Mississauga community,” said Jeff Zwiefel, executive vice president, Operations. “In stark contrast to the typical “health club” or “gym,” which typically is no more than a room of equipment, Life Time delivers the experts, programs and services that connect and engage members in the areas that interest them most, while introducing them to new passions. In doing so, we help each individual define a personal path to a healthy and active lifestyle, and provide them with comprehensive tools and support to reach their goals.”

Life Time Athletic Mississauga also will feature large indoor and outdoor aquatics centers complete with two-story outdoor waterslides, large, zero-depth entry recreation pools, lap pools and children’s interactive play areas, two whirlpools and an outdoor bistro.

Furthermore, members can take advantage of LifeSpa and Salon, which delivers a full range of hair, nail and skin care services and therapeutic massage, and LifeCafe, which offers the best in healthy food and beverage services.

Families will appreciate the facility’s large, interactive child center, featuring a computer center, junior basketball/sport court, children’s activity areas and a separate infant playroom. Dedicated family dressing rooms also will be available.

Life Time provides complimentary towel and locker service, and an initial 14-day money-back guarantee with no long-term membership contracts.
