Minnesota firm says new Roseville fitness center will employ about 300

A new fitness megacenter scheduled to open early this summer in Roseville will employ about 300 part- and full-time workers, according to a spokeswoman for the company that will oversee the venue.

Life Time Fitness Inc., a Minnesota-based operator of 113 fitness megacenters in the United States and Canada, announced on Wednesday that it is planning to open a 307,000-square-foot center in Roseville. Construction at the site is ongoing.

Life Time spokeswoman Natalie Bushaw said Friday that the Life Time Athletic center will be looking to hire lifeguards, personal trainers, spa workers and other staff.

A “preview center” will open to the public at 8 a.m. Monday at the construction site, 1435 E. Roseville Parkway.

Bushaw said Life Time likely will hold two hiring fairs in advance of the site opening, with the first fair probably coming in February.

The two-story center will include a tennis complex with 10 hard-surface and four clay outdoor courts, an indoor/outdoor aquatics center, group exercise programs and studios, an outdoor bistro with beer and wine service, an extensive workout area with more than 400 weight and cardio exercise equipment, two full-size indoor basketball courts, two multi-service spas and a cafe.

The preview center will be open daily, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. For more information, call (916) 472-2000, or visit
