“Every month is Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month. We live this heritage 24/7/365 that’s made up of rich, diverse, African, indigenous, and European cultures. Ever day, we live, celebrate, and honor all of the shared identities that make us who we are - through our ancestors, modern-day struggles and our collective futures.”
— Maximo Anguiano, Life Time San Antonio at the Rim

“I grew up in the Dominican Republic before moving to the United States. Teaching Zumba and dance has always been my passion, representing my heritage and also my second home, Life Time.”
— Jaime Bueno Prissy, Life Time Westchester

“My Pureto Rican abuela (grandma) gave me this beautiful stone name alum and told me, ‘Use this in your skin, and you will age gracefully.’ I must say, I’ve found the fountain of youth! Alum stones are a mineral salt in crystal form that is made of potassium alum, which has antimicrobial properties - a big part of why they work, and it has been used for generations.”
— Doris Riera, Life Time Garland
