The unrelenting quest for fitness and a healthy lifestyle is readily apparent on Long Island. Walkers, runners and cyclists traverse our roadways; workouts and healthy recipes are shared on every social channel available; and workout gear is now an apparel category of its own—aptly named athleisure. With that in mind, Life Time—The Healthy Way of Life Company—recently announced the planned opening of Life Time Athletic Garden City, confirming what fitness-conscious Long Islanders have been hoping for—the company’s second sports, professional fitness, family recreation and spa resort on Long Island.
Since Life Time opened its first Long Island location in Syosset in 2011, the demand for this all-inclusive, high-end, resort-like destination has soared. An online wait-list has been established for those interested in being the first to be contacted about the new Garden City location, scheduled to open later this year.
“The buzz surrounding our Garden City opening is overwhelmingly positive,” said Jeff Zwiefel, Life Time chief operating officer. “It’s humbling to see how our truly unique and personalized healthy way of life approach has resonated in Syosset and we can’t wait to impact the lives of area residents as well.”
The preview center, located at 1000 Zeckendorf Blvd. in Garden City, will open on Monday, Sept. 14, and will provide a taste of the world-class amenities to be found at the Garden City location. A limited number of Founder’s Memberships will be available once the preview center opens, which grants exclusive privileges, including early access to the club before it opens to all members, a VIP invitation to a grand opening celebration, a complimentary health assessment and more.
When the Garden City destination opens later this year at 750 Zeckendorf Blvd., the three-story, 126,000-square-foot center will offer a health, fitness and lifestyle experience similar to what has made its Syosset club unique to Long Island, including a broad array of highly personalized programs and services that allow members to engage in their areas of interest and help them achieve their total health objectives, athletic aspirations and fitness goals. In addition, unique social events and dynamic programming are offered throughout the year for individuals, couples and families to fit every pace and passion.
