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

10 Tools You Aren't Using at the Gym

I once heard the phrase, “Fitness is like fashion.” In other words, certain equipment, workouts or programs might be “in” right now and promptly “out” tomorrow.

During my nearly twenty years in the profession, I have found this to be the case. Tried and true exercise tools suddenly fall out of favor and collect dust in the corner while many people choose to wait around for more popular equipment during peak hours.

The fact is, many of our members use a very narrow set of tools and resources at the gym. Why is that? There are plenty of benefits to be had from bringing a more exploratory mindset to the fitness floor - including more variation and (often) better results! Check out these 10 tools that can expand your fitness horizons.

What Role Should Fruit Play in Your Diet?

In my client sessions, questions like these often come up. Can I eat more fruit instead of vegetables? Can I eat fruit at all if I'm trying to lose weight? What role should fruit have in a healthy diet? 

Fruit in its whole, natural state is a nutrient-dense food group. Yet, we need to consider the bigger picture in determining its optimum role for our health and weight loss endeavors.

When we balance fruit's macronutrient profile with its micronutrient benefits, we can understand how it should best fit into our eating plan.

Read on to learn the unique advantages of fruit as well as the cautions and to assess the place fruit can have in your diet - especially if you’re looking to lose weight and/or limit your carb intake.

7 Reasons to Go to Bed Now

Reality check: when was the last time you were happily drifting off to sleep before 10:00 p.m.?

Another: when was the last time you were in bed (early or not!) without the faithful companionship of  T.V., Facebook, work email or Candy Crush? Do I sense some sheepish looks here?

In a society that imposes an often obsessive focus on productivity, achievement and busyness, we’ve lost touch with the old adage, “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man (or woman!) healthy, wealthy, and wise.”

Before you throw in that load of late night laundry or start a round of e-retail therapy at 10:00 p.m., consider these 7 surprising effects shortchanging sleep can have on your quality of life - and health.

The Crave Game

Do your food cravings get the best of you? 

Do you believe you just need more willpower to control them?

For most of us, at some point food cravings creep up on us. For some of us, however, cravings become a constant barrier to our health and weight loss goals, often causing us to feel out of control with our eating. We should be capable of gathering enough willpower to ignore them, we tell ourselves, but more often than not, we come up short. 

Consider a different understanding of your battle for a moment. What if cravings had little to do with willpower and more to do with physiology?
