Life Time, the premier healthy lifestyle brand, continues its mission to inspire healthy, happy lives across the nation with the opening of its fifth Arizona location, and the state’s first shopping center destination. Life Time Biltmore, located at Biltmore Fashion Park, adds an important new dimension to the iconic, open-air Macerich destination and supports Phoenix residents who strive to accomplish their health and wellness goals in a setting that caters to today’s changing lifestyle landscape. After an evening VIP event on March 5, the club is now open for Founding Member workouts and will open for all members at 4am on March 9.

In addition to Life Time Biltmore, later this year, Life Time will open a three-story, nearly 180,000-square-foot club in Peoria. A Preview Center for Life Time Happy Valley-Peoria has just opened at 24700 North 67th Avenue for prospective members to learn about membership opportunities. In total, nearly 600 new jobs will be created between the two Life Time destinations totaling more than $77 million together.

“We’re excited to bring this first-of-its-kind Life Time to Phoenix and create a new way for consumers to experience Biltmore Fashion Park. This new destination, along with our Happy Valley-Peoria Life Time planned to open later this year, are bringing a renewed energy to this growing area,” said Jeff Zwiefel, Life Time chief operating officer. “It’s been 17 years since our first Arizona destination opened in Tempe and we are proud to positively impact the lives of our members and in the community.”
