Life Time Group Holdings has opened a three-story fitness club in Lake Zurich, continuing its trend of muscling up in the Chicago suburbs.
The Minnesota-based health club chain took 148,000 square feet at 400 North Rand Road for its 13th location in the area, the Chicago Business Journal reported. The 148,000-square-foot facility overlooks the suburb’s namesake lake.
The new facility has studios large enough for group classes that will be used for barre, cardio and strength training, indoor cycling, Pilates and yoga. Other features include a gym with cardio and strength-training equipment; programs for kids and seniors; an indoor water area with a leisure pool and adult and kids lap pools; indoor pickleball courts; dressing rooms with whirlpool and cold plunge suites, saunas and steam rooms; a rest and recovery area; salon and spa services; a restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining; and an outdoor beach club with leisure pool and waterslide, lap pool, whirlpools and cabana and lounge seating.
In January, Life Time opened a 126,000-square-foot fitness center and 39,000-square-foot coworking space in Chicago’s River North. The facility marked the first coworking space for the company in Chicago and its ninth in the U.S. overall.
“It’s an arms race for amenities,” James O’Reilly, president of Life Time work, told The Real Deal in May. “Some of the older inventory is really working hard to try and create more of a draw. The office, and what a place to work means, is undergoing a great rethink at the moment.”
Earlier this month, Adventus Realty Trust, a Vancouver, Canada-based landlord with 3 million square feet of offices across suburban Chicago, secured a deal for another fitness company, Life Fitness, to return to the Rosemont building it vacated a year before.
Life Time’s other Chicago area facilities are in Romeoville, Schaumburg, Algonquin, Warrenville, Orland Park, Burr Ridge, Bloomingdale, Oakbrook, Old Orchard, Vernon Hills and Northbrook.
