GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Business Description

Industry: Travel & Leisure » Leisure
Compare:SIX, PCLN, CCL, RCL, FUN » details
Traded in other countries:LTF.Germany
Life Time Fitness, Inc. was incorporated in 1990 as a Minnesota corporation. The Company and its subsidiaries are mainly engaged in designing, building and operating, multi-use sports and athletic, professional fitness, family recreation and spa centers in a resort-like environment, principally in residential locations of major metropolitan areas. As of December 31, 2012, it operated 105 centers, including 24 in Minnesota, 18 in Texas, nine in Illinois, six in Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina and Ohio, five in Arizona, four in Colorado, three in Indiana and Virginia, two in Kansas, Maryland and New Jersey and one each in Florida, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, Tennessee and Utah and one in Ontario, Canada. It participates in the large and growing health and wellness industry, which includes health clubs, fitness equipment, athletics, wellness education, nutritional products, athletic apparel, spa services and other wellness-related activities. The Company defines a membership as one individual, couple or family. For example, a family of three people would be considered one membership. As of December 31, 2012, the Company had 1,506,777 members, an average of 1.9 members per membership. Its current model centers average approximately 2.1 members per membership, as a result of a higher family concentration for those centers. All Access memberships, regardless of level, typically include 24-hour access, locker and towel service, group fitness classes (such as core, studio cycle and yoga), various educational programs, and Member Advantage (an offering that provides discounts on purchases from national and local businesses for Life Time members). Members may also take advantage of equipment orientations and participate in health and fitness assessments. If members upgrade their membership plan, they typically receive enhanced benefits depending on plan level. These benefits may include access to a greater number of centers nationwide, more guest privileges, higher-end amenities and additional programs and services. Part of the Access membership plan offering is a junior membership. Children under the age of 12 qualify for a junior membership, with dues of $6 to $15 per month, depending on the center. The junior membership provides access to the child center, pools and gymnasiums at designated times. The Company does not count junior memberships as incremental reported memberships since they are already part of the Access membership.
