Ask any Life Time personal trainer or weight loss coach, and they’ll tell you
that total health requires attention to activity and nutrition, never one or
the other. Lasting health and fitness requires a holistic approach, and it can
be hard to know where to start. That’s why Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life
Company(NYSE:LTM) is introducing three all new programs from Life Time Weight
Loss— utopa^SM, palara^SM and signia^SM.

Understanding your metabolism is key to sustainable weight loss so each Life
Time Weight Loss program begins with determining an individual’s unique
metabolic profile, and tailoring each program for real, lasting weight loss.
Participants will work with Life Time’s fitness and nutrition professionals to
address habits, environment, diet and activity to provide all the tools needed
to achieve total health. Life Time Weight Loss offers three programs to choose
from to support differing fitness and nutrition levels and goals including:

  *utopa:  utopa offers the ultimate one-on-one, personalized approach and is
    perfect for those who want the highest level of attention and
    accountability. The utopa program includes personal training and weight
    loss coaching sessions, a heart rate monitor and activity monitor,
    nutritional supplements, Longevity and Vitality lab testing and continued
    support throughout the program. Participants also have access to support
    groups for a social atmosphere when it’s needed.
  *palara:  palara provides weight loss support in a group setting.
    Participants get face time with a fitness professional without private
    session rates through group training and nutrition classes. palara’s
    support groups and weigh-ins hold members accountable to personalized
    fitness and nutrition plans, and the program includes a heart rate
    monitor, unlimited phone access to a team of expert health advisors and
    continued support throughout the program through materials including Eat
    Well. Live Well, a Healthy Way of Life Nutrition Manual.
  *signia:  For individuals who benefit most from a group approach, but also
    need flexibility and variety to design their own experience, signia offers
    world-class facilities, expert guidance and weekly support groups. The
    signia program includes an initial meeting with a weight loss coach to
    develop a personalized fitness and nutrition plan, weekly weigh-ins, and
    flexibility and variety in fitness options.

“Life Time has always provided the best programs, the best places and the best
people to help our members achieve success in their fitness, nutrition and
total health goals so it seems only natural that we would expand our program
offerings to provide additional support specific to weight loss that can be
tailored and unique to each individual,” says Tom Nikkola, Sr. Director of
Nutrition and Weight Management at Life Time. “Our members tell us over and
over again that they’ve tried everything to lose weight but nothing has
worked. We understand their frustration. utopa, palara and signia will truly
lend a helping hand to those struggling by focusing on support from the inside
out, providing personalized plans and, most importantly, making weight loss

Each program provides educational tools including Eat Well. Live Well., a
Healthy Way of Life nutrition manual and companion journal, weekly weigh-ins
and support group sessions, weekly nutrition, exercise and lifestyle guidance
through the Flourish e-newsletter, and access to articles, blogs and success
stories via
