Life Time Work features an innovative and luxurious shared work environment including offices, open desks and lounge spaces. Membership also includes Diamond-level access to all Life Time destinations.

"We're excited to reach this important milestone with Mayor Doyle," said Aaron Koehler, Vice President of real estate and development for Life Time. "The community discussion and input from Beaverton residents was important in getting us to today, and we look forward to bringing our Healthy Way of Life mindset to Oregon for the first time as part of our nationwide expansion. While generating economic growth, we are thrilled to bring nearly 300 new jobs to the community once open."
