Lifetime is a fitness gym that has multiple locations in the United States. Besides wonderful and plenty facilities such as hot tubs, spa, and café, they also offer group classes such as cardio training, yoga and Pilates. Some of these classes require extra money but most of them are free of charge once you become a member. They also have personal trainers specializing in different areas of focus; members can enter personal training contracts with their trainers directly.

As a lifetime Fitness member, I use their App a lot. Their App is called Lifetime Health and is accessible on iOS system. Only with a US apple ID, you are able to download this app to your mobile and tablet. After you login to your account with Lifetime Fitness, you will be able to start controlling your fitness plan with your thumb. My experience with the App is very satisfying because each platform has its adapted version and is very easy to use.

Group Classes

Lifetime Fitness offers about 10 group classes per day from Pilates to Yoga and Cycling. Some of the classes charge extra money and members need to sign up in advance, but most of them are free and for drop in.

Group class schedule definitely serves as one of the most important features in the App. Members are able to view group class schedules for up to one month in advance. Meanwhile, information on each class is very detailed—members are able to view the exact time, studio room and which specific instructor is coaching.

Need to mention, members are also able to pick out the classes they want to attend and export to their offline mobile or tablet; at the same time, there are alarm options available to set as reminders for the class.
