The all-encompassing lifestyle and resort destination, Life Time, is set to open in the heart of downtown La Jolla later this year.
Life Time was founded in 1992 in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota with the mission of promoting healthier, happier lives for its members. Life Time has more than 140 destinations across the United States and Canada, and this location is San Diego’s first Life Time location.
“Imagine bringing your five-star resort hotel into the athletic health club environment,” says Life Time’s West Coast area director, Brian Gaeta. “Guests will experience everything from best-in-class fitness programming to best-in-class lifestyle programming along with several other resort-like amenities.”
Gaeta oversees eight Life Time destinations as far south as La Jolla and as far north as Seattle.
“Life Time has been a staple in all, if not most, of the communities that we currently have destinations. We’re looking forward to being an integral part of the La Jolla community.”
Located on Wall Street and Herschel Avenue, this 46,000-square-foot location will feature rooms of fitness equipment, personal training sessions, and studio classes such as yoga and indoor cycle sessions. Life Time’s resort features include saunas and steam rooms; life spa features such as hair services, nail services, skin services, and massage services; nutritional coaching; and a five-star cafe.
“Members and customers should expect a luxury home away from home,” says Gaeta.
Life Time expects to have a positive economic effect on the community, as it is looking to hire approximately 150 team members across six different departments to help run the lifestyle and resort destination.
“We love to be able to invest in communities and bring an economic impact,” says Gaeta.
Later this year, Life Time will hire member services team members, personal trainers, studio instructors, Life Cafe team members, operations and facility team members, and Life Spa team members. Two job fairs will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14, and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 21, at the Marriott San Diego La Jolla, 4240 La Jolla Village Drive.
The health club is scheduled to open at 1055 Wall St. in the first week of December. To learn more about Life Time’s La Jolla location and to receive a virtual tour of the new facility, visit Life Time’s Preview Center at 7863 Girard Ave., Suite 101, or visit Life Time’s website at lifetime.life.
