CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2018 / -- LifeStart, the country's largest multi-tenant corporate fitness management company, announced today the grand opening of the ultimate wellness club located inside the newly modernized Meier & Frank Building in Portland, Oregon. Originally built in 1909, the historical building covers a full city block and is located conveniently in the heart of the city. The Sterling Bay-managed site proves the centrality of amenities in modern multi-tenant spaces, with approximately 14,000 square feet dedicated to special offerings. Amenity services include an expansive bike room, with heated lockers and private changing rooms, a lounge, and of course a full-service fitness and wellness club.

The club features a large group exercise room with Life Fitness IC5 spin bikes and on-demand classes, a cardio and weight room with an Aktiv functional unit, Life Fitness cardio machines, Peloton bikes, and free weight area. The locker rooms feature elegant finishes complete with complimentary fluffy towels and spa-quality products.

LifeStart, which consulted throughout the design and development phase, now moves into the management role, providing on-site fitness professionals, motivating group exercise instructors, and expert trainers to ensure that all fitness needs and goals of the tenants are met. Monthly social events and special classes will be held in the center to further create a sense of community within the building. Candlelight yoga, guided meditation, and live DJ classes are just a few things that members can expect to enjoy in the facility.

The Meier & Frank building establishes LifeStart’s presence in the Portland area. However, the company has been involved with two other design and development projects this year in the city, with plans for a second managed site in 2019 and substantial growth in the Pacific Northwest region in the next 12 months.
