A month into the new year, and those healthful resolutions are well under way. Thankfully, Life Time’s newest outpost, which opened in Franklin last November, gives gym- and studio-goers a comprehensive workout and wellness facility to keep their goals in check.
The two-story, 124,000-square-foot space marks Life Time’s first Nashville-area resort and the second of its kind in Tennessee. Here, you’ll find both indoor and outdoor aquatic centers, two basketball courts, strength training and group exercise studios, an in-house medical practice, a full-service salon, spa, and more. Open daily from 4 a.m. to midnight, Life Time Athletic Franklin is apt for early risers and night owls, too.
Top-notch amenities aside, Life Time’s Franklin locale delivers a range of exclusive programming to energize and inspire. Choose from 90-plus group-training, cycling, yoga, and Pilates classes for every skill level, or enlist one of Life Time’s personal trainers for one-on-one and small-group sessions. Coupled with seasonal 60-day challenges, Life Time Athletic Franklin is stocked with the best cardiovascular and resistance-training equipment to get you looking—and feeling—your best in no time.
Looking for more than just a workout? Life Time Athletic Franklin offers conveniences for the whole family, too. For children, there’s a unique program called the Kids Academy, immersing Life Time’s youngest members (ages three months to 11 years) in activities like swimming, karate, tumbling, and skills-based classes. Plus, fast-casual LifeCafe has all-natural breakfast, lunch, and dinner options to enjoy onsite or take to-go, and LifeSpa provides hair, nail, and skincare services, as well as therapeutic massage.
Whatever your needs and goals may be for this year and beyond, Life Time Athletic Franklin has the resources, amenities, and instructors to accompany your health and wellness journey.
“We have been thrilled with the interest and response from the community,” says Brett Huelsman, general manager of Life Time Athletic Franklin. “Our members have been waiting patiently for the ultimate destination resort for healthy living, and now Life Time is their one-stop solution.”
