The state of Texas added its 32nd athletic country club in early 2024: Life Time Las Colinas in the Dallas suburb of Irving. This club is in an area that’s also home to golf courses, high-end shopping, and a variety of dining options. “The club is located right off the George Bush tollway, so it’s very accessible,” says Alecia Knudsen, lead general at Life Time Las Colinas, who is passionate about Life Time and all it has to offer.

“Personally, as a working mom of two, Life Time has everything I need,” she says. “I believe in healthy living and strive to be the best mom, wife, and leader I can be — and I can achieve those things with Life Time.

“I go to my favorite classes, my kids go to swim lessons, we all get haircuts in the LifeSpa, and anytime we’re on a trip, my husband hunts down the nearest Life Time so he can pop in and get some work done on his laptop,” she explains. “For my family, everything is here!”

The same can be true for you too. Let’s explore the 108,500-square-foot space at Life Time Las Colinas:

outdoor pool
outdoor pickleball courts

Swim in the indoor leisure pool or lap pool, or let the kids splash in the zero-depth entry pool. You can also head outside to the pool deck to enjoy the lap pool, leisure pool, waterslides, and whirlpool.

Ready to pick up your pickleball paddle? You’ll find three indoor and four outdoor pickleball courts. The latter feature a lounge area right off the pool deck — it’s a great spot to watch friends and family play pickleball outdoors.

life spa

The full-service LifeSpa offers services for your body, hair, nails, and skin, and has six styling stations.

Enjoy a healthy meal and find nourishment when hunger arises in the LifeCafe and lounge. “I love Life Time because it makes a lot of things possible in a busy world,” says Knudsen. “Where else can you grab dinner as a family and get your nails done at the spa in the same place?!”

Venture into the locker rooms to relax in the whirlpool, sauna, or steam room. There is also a cold plunge for those who want to experience the benefits of cold therapy.

fitness floor
yoga studio

For group fitness classes, members have a variety of options to choose from, including cycling, yoga, and other formats exclusive to Life Time that are centered around building strength or endurance. There are six studios: one each for yoga, Pilates, cycle, and barre, and two for the other class formats.

In addition to the Pilates class studio, there is a private Pilates room where a member can receive one-on-one training without distractions.

The expansive workout floor houses free weights, cardiovascular- and resistance- training machines, and designated stretching areas; there are also with dedicated spaces for GTX, Alpha, and Ultra Fit signature group training classes.

Dynamic Personal Trainers are available to guide and support members toward their fitness goals, while Dynamic Stretch Specialists can provide assisted-stretch sessions to aid in members’ recovery efforts.

There is also an LT Recovery zone, which offers expert direction, care, and support for members’ recovery efforts, along with access to high-tech and effective recovery equipment. Options include hydromassage chairs, Normatec air compression sleeves, Hyperice equipment, metabolic testing, recovery treatments, and nutrition counseling. Chiropractic services are available in the LifeClinic.

kids academy

Life Time Las Colinas has a Kids Academy featuring a tumbling area, a movement studio, an art and language studio, a kids’ gym, and a learning lab. Kids ages three months to 11 years can learn, play, and grow with the engaging and enriching age-specific programming and classes. Parents can use up to 2.5 hours of child care per day, included with a Junior Membership.

“We anticipate a lot of families using this part of their membership,” says Knudsen. “It’s such a perk for parents to drop off their kids — knowing they’ll be having a fun and healthy time — while they use the club for themselves.”

Meet the Team

Ashley Gomez, LifeCafe Leader

How did you get started with Life Time?

I started my career with Life Time about two and a half years ago as a LifeCafe leader at Life Time Flower Mound in Texas, and then moved to work at Life Time Mansfield (also in Texas) as a LifeCafe leader.

What brought you to Life Time Las Colinas?

I’ve been able to support other Life Time location grand openings, and I’m excited to be a part of Life Time Las Colinas when it opens as well. Helping open this new club gives me the opportunity to build a new team from the ground up and deliver an amazing experience to our members.

What’s your connection to Life Time’s healthy way of life mission?

Not only do I prefer to age gracefully, but I also plan on sticking around for my children and grandchildren for as long as I can. My preferred workout is to box with a trainer, but I also enjoy any class that incorporates lifting.

At Life Time, we get to help others with their healthy way of life. We do this in the LifeCafe every single day by providing healthy meal options, by recommending supplements, and most of all, by getting to know the members on a personal level and putting a smile on their faces.

Jason Bowles, Personal Training Leader

How did you get started with Life Time?

I began my Life Time career in July 2019 at Life Time Colorado Springs. I was awarded the “Rookie of the Year” award and promoted to a metabolic specialist role in December 2019. After the COVID-19 shutdown, I was one of the first trainers brought back to work at that club and continued as a personal trainer, certified nutrition coach, metabolic technician, and signature group training instructor until August 2022.

I then was promoted to personal training assistant leader. A few short months later, in November 2022, I was promoted to the personal training leader role. More recently, I was voted the “Top Personal Training Leader” for quarter two of 2023.

What brought you to Life Time Las Colinas?

I relocated to Life Time Las Colinas for a number of reasons. After being recruited by the leadership team, I was excited for the opportunity to be a part of the grand opening of a new club, to build a team of the most sought-after performers in the industry, and to receive further professional development by some of the top area leaders in the company.

What’s your connection to Life Time’s healthy way of life mission?

A healthy way of life has always been a massive part of my life. I’m a former athlete, I served in the Marine Corps, and I have a deep passion for helping others on their healthy journeys. After my dad passed away in 2017 due to health issues, I dedicated my life to physical rehabilitation, life optimization, nutrition, strength training, and conditioning and recovery.

I hold a deep passion for educating others in a comprehensive approach to health and wellness with the aim of achieving full functional fitness and improving quality of life and longevity. My personal mission is to use my talents and abilities in ways that serve others and enable them to live happier and healthier lives.

Sarah Holleman, Aquatics Leader

How did you get started with Life Time?

I started my career with Life Time at Life Time Palm Valley in Goodyear, Ariz., as an aquatics supervisor in June 2019. In May 2021, I transferred to Illinois to help grand open Life Time Oakbrook as an aquatics leader.

Working in Chicago was an amazing opportunity for me, but it was a little too cold. When I was invited to the Dallas market, I was stoked for that next opportunity. I’m glad to have planted roots here in Texas and can’t wait to continue growing here.

What brought you to Life Time Las Colinas?

I’m excited for the opportunity to work at Life Time Las Colinas to build the team and hopefully inspire future leaders at Life Time. I am also looking forward to working with a general manager who has come from aquatics and continuing to grow my leadership skills with her.

At Life Time Las Colinas, we get to introduce our mission and values to all the corporations in the area who have yet to experience a luxury athletic country club in their market. I am also excited to connect the Junior Members to a safe aquatics program and show them how to live a healthy life through swimming.

What’s your connection to Life Time’s healthy way of life mission?

I was always involved in sports growing up, but otherwise did not grow up with the healthiest lifestyle. At Life Time, I realized the importance of taking care of myself physically and mentally. It’s important for me to prioritize my own healthy way of life as this helps me provide the best experience for our members and team members. My favorite way to workout at Life Time is through GTX and Alpha classes.
