Life Time expands its presence in Florida with its newest athletic country club: Life Time Harbour Island. “We’re thrilled to introduce Tampa’s only athletic country club,” says Jess Stovall, senior manager for new club openings at Life Time. “This property underwent a complete renovation from the former building occupant and offers our array of healthy-way-of-life programs and offerings for people of all ages who are seeking healthier, happier lives.”

There is an experience for every member and every mood, whether they’re seeking relaxation or driven to break a sweat. “Our members can play outdoors on the tennis and pickleball courts, unwind poolside, lift weights on the workout floor, or join a class in one of our dedicated studios,” says Stovall. “We’re excited for the fully renovated workout floor, expansive outdoor pool experience, and restaurant with an outdoor patio.”

Life Time Harbour Island has a variety of spaces for members to enjoy, from the workout floor, group training areas, and fitness studios to the locker rooms, LifeSpa, and expansive pickleball and tennis sport courts. There is also a Beach Club, an outdoor half-basketball court, Kids Academy, and more.

Let’s explore the 186,000-square-foot Life Time Harbour Island space:

The outdoor Beach Club is the place to be on the Sunshine State’s warm-weather days. Adults can enjoy the four-lane outdoor lap pool, while kids can splash around in the dedicated kid’s pool. There are cabanas for lounging and an outdoor poolside bistro for convenience when hunger strikes.

There is an outdoor cold plunge for those who want to experience the  benefits of cold therapy — or for the days when the sun feels a little too hot. And when the sun goes down, relax in the outdoor whirlpool. “The pool area is a resort-like experience!” says Stovall.

Pickleball continues to grow in popularity, and Life Time Harbour Island has 12 outdoor pickleball courts for leagues, mixers, clinics, and open play. “From beginner to advanced levels, we welcome everyone to be a part of this pickleball community with the beautiful new courts,” says Stovall.

There are eight outdoor tennis courts for leagues, lessons, open play, and social events. An outdoor lounge and stadium seating area for spectators to overlook the pickleball and tennis courts.

The club also features an outdoor half-basketball court for pickup games.

Members can discover their go-to studio class by trying a variety of cycling, yoga, strength, and endurance formats. There are four designated studios: one each for cycle, yoga, Pilates, and other unique-to-Life-Time group-class formats.

Venture onto the expansive workout floor to find free weights, cardiovascular- and resistance-training machines, and designated stretching areas. This is also where GTX, Alpha, and Ultra Fit signature group training classes take place.

For members who want to advance their fitness experience, they can engage with a Dynamic Personal Trainer for one-on-one guidance (at an additional cost). (Read more: “Achieve Your Fitness Goals With Dynamic Personal Training”)

For those looking to incorporate more stretching and recovery into their routine, or who could use support with mobility, Dynamic Stretch is a new Life Time offering where a stretch specialist takes you through an assisted-stretch session for your full body (this is also at an additional cost).

life spa

Relax and recover in the executive locker rooms while soaking in the whirlpool or enjoying the heat of the cedarwood sauna. A variety of amenities are provided for members, including shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, as well as towel service and daily locker use. Continue your self-care by booking a massage in the LifeSpa.

There’s also an indoor LifeCafe for nutritious eats, including shakes, entrees, and grab-and-go meals you can take with you if you’re on the move.

The Kids Academy, which provides healthy and fun programming in a safe environment, offers a kids play area for young ones to enjoy. Daily complimentary child care — included in Junior Memberships — is a convenient option for members when they’re at the club. Drop your infant for to 2 hours; kids who are 18 months and older can stay for 2.5 hours.
