For many people, the holiday season takes them away from home — but that doesn’t mean it has to take them away from their health and fitness routines. As a Life Time member, you have access to the other 170-plus Life Time locations across the United States and in Toronto when you’re traveling.

If you find yourself in one of the following cities this holiday season, consider exploring the local Life Time. Try a new class format, meet a new instructor, and stay on track with those healthy-living goals you’ve been working toward all year long. (Not visiting one of these cities? View all of Life Time’s athletic country club destinations to find one near you.)

1. Life Time River North at One Chicago

Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, Life Time River North opened in 2022 inside the premier One Chicago residential building. It’s on the corner of West Chicago Avenue and North State Street and just two streets away from the Magnificent Mile, the main retail and entertainment district in Chicago (holiday shopping, anyone?).

Visit this athletic country club for a swim in the indoor lap pool (which features a stunning sky light above it), a fitness class in one of seven dedicated studio spaces, a workout on the fitness floor that overlooks the city landscape, a pick-up game on the regulation-size basketball court, or healthier twists on Chicago’s favorite foods in the LifeCafe.

Spend your visit challenging yourself in a workout of choice on the expansive fitness floor, playing a game of pickleball, or experiencing a relaxing service in the LifeSpa. If the weather permits, check out the rooftop beach resort — complete with an outdoor pool and splash pad — and take in the gorgeous mountain views of Mount Diablo.

There’s also an outdoor whirlpool for deeper relaxation when the sun goes down. And whenever hunger strikes, stop by the outdoor pool bistro or indoor LifeCafe for a menu of healthy options.

New York City is magical during the holidays. While you’re out-and-about eyeing decorations and displays and shopping and dining, consider a stop at Life Time Midtown on 56th Street — it’s just one block over from Billionaire’s Row and three blocks from Central Park.

This club offers an oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can take a class in one of the multiple fitness studios, travel the grand staircase as you move between the cardio and strength floors for a well-rounded workout, swim in the three-lane indoor lap pool, or unwind in the indoor whirlpool.

How Does Life Time’s Travel Policy Work?

Life Time members have access to any club location during occasional, short-term travel outside of their home club or network of clubs within their state. For example, a member at Life Time in Pickerington, Ohio, who is planning a vacation to Irvine, Calif., could look to visit Life Time Lakeshore-Irvine during their trip.

This benefit is available for short-term travel (no longer than one week) and is subject to each club’s discretion. If you’re planning a trip, contact the club you’d like to visit for more information.

Note: Access to certain services, programs, amenities, or areas within a club (including outdoor pools and racquet courts) may be restricted, conditioned, or otherwise limited by specific terms and may require a separate or supplemental fee for access or use. See club for additional terms and conditions that may apply. Frequent business travel, long-term work assignments, and temporary residents will require a membership upgrade; visit your Membership Concierge for more information. Additionally, you cannot use your guest passes outside of your home club at this time.
