We know the science behind weight loss.

Every Life Time Weight Loss program is built specifically for you. That’s because every program at Life Time begins with a myMetabolicProfileSM assessment. This profile identifies areas of concern that may get in the way of your weight loss. After this assessment you’ll choose a plan based on your specific needs and lifestyle. One size doesn’t fit all, particularly when it comes to weight loss plans. That’s why we get results that are more than just short-term; we put you on the path toward achieving and maintaining a healthy weight for a lifetime.

We offer programs ranging from pre-packaged to completely custom. Or you can choose weekly Healthy Living Challenges. These informal gatherings allow small groups to meet with a Nutrition Coach and discuss various topics or concerns for the week in a casual setting. Talk to a trainer for help determining which program is right for you.

With your unique metabolic profile, our experts will create your own personal plan to lose weight. See How It Works

12 Awesome Foods for the Adventurous Palate

Raise your hand if you've ever been bored by healthy eating! Although a lot of us may find ourselves admitting as much, we likely understand our boredom isn't the foods' fault. Too often when we transition to a healthier diet, we come to over-rely on basic staples and end up cycling through an unsatisfyingly narrow set of choices each week. What we crave is variety! As we expand our cooking skills and learn to creatively season fresh, whole foods, we mix up our dietary offerings. Our best bet, however, is to continually expand our palate and experiment with entirely new foods we might never have imagined putting in our grocery carts! Are you up for a change of pace? Check out these 12 foods that can add some eating adventure to your healthy journey!

7 Tips for Healthy Joints

Too often we begin caring about joint health only when pain and stiffness set in. Unfortunately, there aren’t many tests or assessments that can give us an objective look at the health of our joints, and the root causes behind joint pain can come from a variety or combination of sources. Excess weight, for example, can increase knee stress by 4-5 times for every pound gained. Maintaining a healthy weight is one significant part of proactive joint care, but there are many other tactics you can act on today to help keep your joints healthy and pain-free!

Heart Disease 101: Unexpected Risk Factors

Consider this. I’m 31 years old, exercise at least five days per week, sleep at least seven hours every night, eat at least 5 servings of vegetables daily, avoid tobacco, and am near-optimal body composition. According to the American Heart Association’s heart disease risk calculator, I should be on moderate-to-high-dose statin therapy. Why? My systolic blood pressure runs slightly higher than 120mm Hg. That’s all.( In case you were wondering, my diastolic blood pressure is usually in the high 50s or mid 60s, which is considered excellent).The calculator didn’t ask for any of the other information I shared about my lifestyle choices. For its purposes, they don’t matter (or make the cut in its final design). If nothing else, this example at least begs the question of how cardiovascular risk is assessed. What do conventional measures examine, and what else should we be noting in realistically evaluating our potential for heart disease?

6 Ways You Impair Your Fitness Recovery

Ask people what they associate with fitness, and you’ll hear hard work, sweat, exertion and fatigue. While all of the above are true, we often don’t talk enough about fatigue - or, seen another way, the body’s post-workout recovery process. However, what we do in that recovery window, so to speak, has much more influence over our fitness gains than we’d imagine. In addition to understanding where our workouts hit the law of diminishing returns, how we allow for and even support our exercise recovery can make a sizable difference in our fitness and performance progress. For all the time and effort you put in at the gym, it’s critical to avoid the following 6 mistakes that hinder your body’s post-workout recovery.

Debunked: 8 Products and Activities That DON’T Aid Fat Loss 

Who wouldn't want an "easy, instant" way to lose weight? There are unfortunately countless companies willing to tap into our desire and offer empty promises in the way of bogus products and activities.

6 Critical Nutrients You’re Likely Lacking

Rickets, scurvy, goiter… When we hear the phrase “nutritional deficiencies,” our minds often wander to these dramatic, distant seeming maladies. While it’s doubtful that you’re currently struggling to treat any of these clinical and aggressively symptomatic deficits, did you know that most of us have sub-optimal levels of many key nutrients? Even if you’re overweight, it is possible – and even common – to be under-nourished. As a result, many or most of us struggle with varying baseline levels of fatigue, moodiness, fat loss difficulties, and cravings that become our relative state of normality. (Do we remember anything else?) Even if you feel “fine,” what would it be like to feel even better? The fact is, our nutrient status is very much the foundation of our metabolism and performance. What would be possible in your health, fitness and fat loss if you were running on all cylinders? Read on to learn which key nutrients you’re most likely lacking – and how you can best boost your body’s supply.
