The Company’s Healthy Way of Life approach enables customers to achieve this by providing the best programs, people and places of uncompromising quality and value. As of February 6, 2012, the Company operated 93 centers under the LIFE TIME FITNESS® and LIFE TIME ATHLETICSM brands, along with nine former Lifestyle Family Fitness centers, in 21 states and 26 major markets.
