Life Time has announced it will be ready to reopen all 23 of its Minnesota locations as soon as it's legally permitted to do so.

Gov. Tim Walz announced Friday he's loosening COVID-19 restrictions so that gyms and fitness centers can reopen at 25 percent capacity on Wednesday, June 10.

Immediately after it was announced, Life Time announced its plans to reopen on that very day, and has announced a series of safety protocols it will be implementing.

This will include;

  • Enhanced cleaning regularly throughout the club, and overnight deep cleaning, using an EPA-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant and virucide that is known to be effective against emerging viral pathogens and human coronavirus, including the virus that causes COVID-19.
  • Cleaning stations with disinfectants (in both wipes and spray bottles) throughout the club for members to use before and after exercising on equipment.
  • Social distancing measures throughout the club including markings or directions at the front desk, fitness floor, class studios, locker rooms, children’s areas, pool areas and more.
  • Dedicated equipment for class participants that is cleaned between classes, in order to promote single use.
  • Temperature screening for all team members consistent with governmental orders and guidelines.
  • In-club and online seminars, programs and education focused on exercise and nutrition.

"As a company founded on member point of view, we want our members to have confidence and peace of mind that Life Time is committed to creating an environment that helps reduce risks associated with COVID-19,” says Life Time Chief Operating Officer Jeff Zwiefel. 

"Reopening Life Time with enhanced health and safety protocols, we believe, is in the best interest of our members’ physical and mental health, and will empower them to take control of their health through exercise, proper nutrition and lifestyle changes to boost their immune systems."

Gyms and fitness centers have been closed since the escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak in mid-March.
