LifeTime WeightLoss Logo

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

5 Days to a Real Food Diet

How much of the food you ate today was "real"?

One of the most critical strategies for losing weight, increasing your energy and improving the way you look and feel is eating real, whole, naturally occuring foods.

Not only are we sparing ourselves the chemical ingredients, added sugars, and processed oils and fillers, but with real foods, we're invariably and dramatically upgrading our actual nutrient intake.

The result? We'll optimally fuel our bodies - and our metabolisms. 

Even if we understand the Healthy Way of Eating principles, we may struggle with how to get started. The transition - from shopping to cooking to enjoying - can seem overwhelming. Look no further: we've got a plan for you! Read on to learn what real food is and how to easily revamp your diet - in just five days!

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.
