Life Time Athletic to Host Open-House Commitment Day Festival
Kick that New Year’s resolution to the curb and make a lasting commitment to health and wellness with Life Time’s Commitment Day Festival

From Thursday, Jan. 1, through Sunday, Jan. 4, Life Time Athletic Summerlin and the newly opened Life Time Athletic Green Valley will open to the public to offer a weekend of events dedicated to helping people embrace healthier, happier, more active lives.

Set to take place at 113 Life Time destinations from coast to coast, the Commitment Day Festival will feature healthy family events all weekend long. Life Time Athletic Summerlin will kick off the festival with a pet-friendly, stroller-friendly 5K Commitment Day Fun Run and a Kids 1K Fun Run at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 1. Open to all ages and abilities, the Commitment Day runs are designed to join together the community in a symbolic commitment to lead healthier, more active lives in 2015.

Following the runs, Life Time will host a weekend of events that are open to the public, including: an Indoor Triathlon Workout in partnership with IRONMAN to encourage and educate people of all athletic abilities on the sport of triathlon; Fit Talks to educate and empower participants with approachable, relevant, and simple life-changing actions; Workout Workshops to provide participants the opportunity to learn and burn with a new workout; and more.

“The Commitment Day Festival is all about doing our part to inspire a healthier America,” said Bahram Akradi, founder, chairman, president and CEO of Life Time. “On the heels of successful Commitment Day 5K Fun Run events the last two years, we have expanded it this year to become a four-day festival that features a wide variety of educational workshops and invigorating classes that fit most interests. Ultimately, it is our goal to help individuals and families make 2015 their best yet in terms of taking charge of their health, wellness and happiness.”
