High-powered fitness brand ups the game with massive new luxury resort-country club in booming Houston 'burb
Lifetime Fitness has made a splash in Texas over the last five years, opening clubs all over the Lone Star State. Dedicated to fitness, health and overall lifestyle needs, the brand straddles the space between gym and country club.
As members know, the fitness center offers everything from yoga classes to cafes with healthy choices, indoor and outdoor pools, rock-climbing walls, children's programs. The brand's aim: making it easier for families to stay healthy together, and a host of other high-end amenities (think spas and personal trainers).
Now, the brand's 30th Texas location has opened its doors in Missouri City and is changing the game in a big way. The 124,000-square-foot Life Time Sienna facility at 8421 Highway 6 offers seven pickleball courts; six studios for Pilates, yoga, barre, group fitness and cycle classes; and a huge work-out floor with options for cardio and resistance training.
The beach resort has water slides for the kids, a leisure pool, a six-lane lap pool, a zero-depth entry pool, comfy lounge chairs and cabana seating, and poolside bistro service. Those wanting their aquatics out of the sun can channel their inner Michael Phelps in the indoor lap pool or chill out in the indoor leisure pool.
Always a brand that touts its commitment to a whole healthy lifestyle, Life Time's new location also has luxury spaces for recovery with steam and saunas within dressing rooms, along with a spa, cafe, and a host of programming designed to help guests and members achieve their health goals.
How? Member can train for a marathon, increase strength, make lifestyle changes with exercise and nutrition, or stay fit as they age. More than 90 different classes at all levels are offered every week, and the Life Time Kids Academy has space for 90-day-olds to 11 year olds to play, work out and have fun in a safe and supervised environment.
The new club and resort is members-only, and those who wish to learn more can check out options here. Day passes are available for those who want to try before they buy. Life Time Sienna is open Monday through Friday from 4 am to midnight and Saturday and Sunday from 5 am to 11 pm.
