Life Time opens its 8th club in N.J., adding 230 jobs in Monmouth County (SLIDESHOW)

127K sq. ft. health and wellness facility creates unique experience

A 127,000-square-foot health and wellness club, Life Time Middletown – Red Bank, is now open to the public. The location at 230 Half Mile Road in Red Bank is the company’s eighth destination in New Jersey, and first in Monmouth County.

Located just off the Garden State Parkway, Life Time Middletown – Red Bank brings more than 230 full- and part-time jobs to the area as part of the facility’s goal of helping everyone live heathier, happier lives.

The new gym and fitness center officially opened its doors Tuesday following the late-January opening of its nearby Life Time Work premium coworking space. Altogether, residents now have a unique health, wellness and work experience like no other.

Life Time Work Middletown – Red Bank is the second premium coworking destination in New Jersey and is located adjacent to the club at the One River Centre office campus at 331 Newman Springs Road.

“Our expansion across the East Coast and here in New Jersey is a direct result of our strong performance, as our brand continues to become a staple for millions of people nationwide,” Parham Javaheri, Life Time executive vice president, president of club operations and chief of property development, said. “The opening our 127,000-square-foot Life Time Middletown – Red Bank allows us to serve residents of Monmouth County with our multitude of health and lifestyle offerings, while the design flexibility of our clubs makes us ideally suited for reimagined office park redevelopments with hyper amenities to meet the needs of the new age worker.”

The three-story destination features comprehensive programming developed with the member point of view in mind — including a 50,000-square-foot outdoor pool deck.

Highlights of the new athletic country club include:

  • Seven dedicated studios for Life Time’s exclusive Class Collection portfolio of Barre, boxing/kickboxing, cardio, cycle, dance, strength, Pilates and yoga classes, which will feature nearly 200 classes weekly;
  • Dedicated space for small, signature group training classes including Alpha, GTX, Ultra Fit and MB360;
  • More than 400 pieces of cardiovascular and resistance training equipment;
  • Six indoor pickleball courts designed for social, competitive or challenging play, clinics, tournaments and more;
  • Indoor and outdoor leisure, lap and whirlpools, and slides complete with resort-style seating with outdoor bistro and a full bar;
  • ARORA programming and social events for active agers;
  • Dedicated Kids Academy offering up to 2.5 hours of fun, active programming for kids ages 3 months to 11 years;
  • LifeCafe, a nutrition-focused, fast-casual café featuring a full menu, Meals to Go and grab and go assortments, proprietary nutritional supplements and more;
  • LifeSpa, a full-service salon and spa for hair, body, skin and nails;
  • Luxurious dressing rooms featuring cold-plunge pools, whirlpools, saunas, steam rooms and complimentary towels, body care amenities and lockers.

Life Time debuted in New Jersey in November 2008 with the opening of its Florham Park-based location. Since then, the company has added additional destinations throughout New Jersey, including Berkeley Heights, Bridgewater (athletic country club & workspace), Hackensack, Middletown (athletic country club & workspace), Montvale, Mount Laurel and Plainsboro (Life Time Princeton).
