Summerlin NV - They want to Pump You Up! That’s the goal of the trainers at Summerlin Life Time Fitness, which opened its doors last week in Summerlin NV. Located east of the Red Rock Resort on Charleston Boulevard, the fitness club offers 200,000 square feet of fitness amenities sure to resonate with virtually every workout buff.
A tribute to the Las Vegas real estate market, this is the 92nd facility opened in the state by the Minnesota-based company. Included among Life Time Fitness’ offerings are a child care center that can handle children infants through age 11, a 50-foot rock climbing, soccer and football areas, over 400 cardio machines, a two-story waterslide and a basketball court. Other typical amenities associated with upscale athletic clubs are also present in abundance.
Those living in nearby Summerlin homes and Las Vegas condos can bring the entire family to Life Time Fitness, share a dinner together, and then the parents can work out while the kids play in the waterslide park or partake of activities in the child care center. According to Life Time Fitness Vice President of Communication Jason Thurnstrom, the facility tailors each member’s workout to his or her specific area of interest. Members who enjoy swimming, for instance, are given a host of activities and exercises which take place in the club’s pool. A member interested in basketball would likewise be encouraged to join on the club’s many leagues.
The point of this is to encourage members to keep at a fitness program once it has begun, the theory being that people are far more inclined to stick with a fitness regimen they truly enjoy, rather than one the “have to” do.
On staff dietitians work with members and trainers to develop a complete workout/diet program tailored specifically to each member’s needs, desires and goals. This total lifestyle approach to fitness helps members achieve their goals more readily than might another, less all encompassing program.
A high end facility such as this not only offers the community excellent workout option, it also contributes in terms of jobs and increased property values. Nearby Henderson NV homes for sale, for instance, may be seen as more appealing, especially to buyers interested in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Another offering likely to be a hit with parents is the Summerlin Life Time Fitness summer camps for kids. The facility also maintains a staff of experts on skin and hair care and provides metabolic testing for members. An in-house café offers healthy foods prepared daily.
Other upscale amenities include a cycling room with videos that simulate bucolic country roads or professional bicycle races like the Tour de France. Rooms dedicated strictly to Pilates, strength training, yoga and squash also are available.
According the Thurnstrom, the club is managed more as a resort dedicated to fitness than simply a health club. The goal of Summerlin Life Time Fitness, is to promote and overall healthy lifestyle for its members.
