I was Life Time's first hire as part of a new wave of talent brought in to reform the internal agency in 2010. I held various senior and director-level design roles over the span of 8 years. 

My passion for digital, natural inclination for UX thinking drove my participation, leadership and ultimate role as digital design director at Life Time. The following is a select group of digital projects I was part of during this time.

Digital design system

As Life Time's digital footprint was beginning to expand, the team set out to build a foundational design system to build upon.

With the traditional side of the brand and marketing continuely evolving, we stripped the brand system down for digital applications — adding responsive behaviors, interactions, error states, etc to components and patterns.

As the agencies Digital Design Director during the creation and maintanence of the system, I partnered with two designers on the digital team (Jeremy Elder and Mike Litecky) to build internal buy-in. 

Buy-in from Life Time's technology/development team. eventually led to the development of a coded source of truth name "Core". During the growth and evolution of the system, my role shifted to ensuring consistency and collaboration across the growing array of digital projects we worked on.

Primary web site

The digital design team worked with UX, marketing and development teams for 2+ years to roll out hundreds of responsive pages.

Life Time's primary web site delivers 1 million+ members functional and engaging content in additional to acting as the primary acquisition funnel for prospects. Each Life Time club comes with it's own set of class schedules, services and amenities.

Meeting member needs was predicated on giving them a club-specific experience. Location-specific class schedules could be viewed via a range of broad range of criteria to meet the needs of every member.

Personal training bios

Personal training is a significant revenue generator for Life Time. Yet, less than 5% of all members hire a personal trainer.

The rise of Life Times member engagement through digital channels created an opportunity to develop an alternative to traditional trainer sales tactics. 

Through filtered search, detailed personal trainer bio pages and a member survey, we set out to create better member/trainer matches to lower trainer attrition rates and improve member results.
