Life Time locations across metro Detroit are set to reopen Wednesday with "enhanced health and safety protocols."

There are seven locations in the area:

The following safety protocols will be implemented at these locations:

· Enhanced cleaning regularly throughout the club and overnight deep cleaning

· Cleaning stations with disinfectants (in both wipes and spray bottles) throughout the club for members to use before and after exercising on equipment.

· Mandatory mask-wearing by members and team members.

· Adjustments to HVAC systems through altered ventilation rates in smaller spaces, increased outside air, and increased duration of air circulation.

· 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, to promote single use.

· Temperature screening for all members and team members consistent with governmental orders and guidelines.

· In-club and online seminars, programs and education focused on exercise and nutrition.

Life Time has expanded its mobile app to serve everyone, including non-members, with healthy living content and will continue to host complimentary on-demand classes on its website [] and YouTube channel, adding new content each week. With more than 100 classes now available, nearly 2 million workouts have been completed virtually since the clubs’ closures. Additionally, Life Time is debuting live streamed classes online to accommodate a wider range of members and meet them at their respective comfort levels.
