Workday and Life Time Fitness

As the Healthy Way of Life Company, Life Time Fitness (NYSE: LTM) helps organizations, communities, and individuals achieve their total health objectives, athletic aspirations, and fitness goals by engaging in their areas of interest—or discovering new passions—both inside and outside of Life Time’s distinctive and large sports, professional fitness, family recreation, and spa destinations, most of which operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 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 March 11, 2015, the Company operated 114 centers under the LIFE TIME FITNESS® and LIFE TIME ATHLETICSM® brands, along with nine former Lifestyle Family Fitness centers, in 32 major markets in the United States and Canada.
