5 Reasons Why I Chose Life Time Work
Without further delay, allow me to share with you precisely why I determined Life Time Work to be the best coworking space in Houston for me.
1 – Location, location, location
I have to admit: I have been an inside-the-loop snob for many years. But when my house flooded and I began to look for apartment space and office space, I was delighted with how much more space I could get in City Centre.
Even more importantly, I realized that City Centre isn’t that far from the center of the action. Indeed, many businesses are moving to the west side of town. And even when I do have to travel inside the loop, I can do so in only ten or fifteen minutes during non-peak traffic hours.
Furthermore, when I host colleagues at my office, parking is a breeze! Life Time Work has an attached gated parking garage, and they validate parking for all members and guests.
2 – Community of coworkers
Immediately upon entering Life Time Work, I knew I was among fellow seasoned professionals. My office mates, so to speak, have a wealth of knowledge and experience in a wide range of industries. The chance of finding a subject matter expert for any given subject is pretty high!
Add to that the fact that the support staff is top-notch, and you have a vibrant community of individuals who are supportive, helpful, and encouraging.
3 – Office environment
When I first started looking for coworking space, I had this incorrect perception of dingy overcrowded tight spaces jampacked with small office spaces. When I first visited Life Time Work, that paradigm was turned upon its head!
The decor here is modern, sleek, but also upscale and warm. Indeed, the workspaces are exceptional. The ergonomic furniture, the elegant fixtures, the stylish finishes: it’s all so elevated and well done! This office space is not your run-of-the-mill office space; this is premium coworking space.
And I haven’t even mentioned the views! Perched upon the 12th floor, this office space has some of the best views of the city! North, south, east, west – we have all the views covered! I’ve spent many nights watching the sunset at the office – and I’ve even seen a couple of sunrises. Plus, it’s really fun to watch the weather changes from this lofty vantage point.
4 – The perks
Now, this is where I could write a full book on the perks alone. Oh my, the amenities offered at Life Time Work are unrivaled. Where shall I start?
1 – The gym membership
Yes, a gym membership is included with your workspace membership. And this isn’t just a base gym membership. You get the top-level all-access gym membership from Life Time.
2 – The gym proximity
Add to that the fact that the gym is less than a block away from our office, and I now have no excuse not to workout! Ha.
3 – The healthy snacks and drinks
Each day, I’m greeted by freshly prepared filtered water infused with fresh fruits of the day. Plus, we have a state-of-the-art coffee machine that allows me to make my latte or mocha right here at the office!
Beyond that, we regularly have informal networking events, workshops, speakers, and more. The facility is designed to support my professional pursuits and my healthy living pursuits. It’s a great way to keep things in perspective and balance.
In summary, Life Time Work embraces and encourages the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle. This fact, of course, should come as no surprise given the brand’s affiliation with its better-known sister brand of gyms.
5 – The budget
I have to admit – as I got closer to deciding upon an office space, I kind of got cold feet! I was somewhat scared of the commitment required by some of these spaces. However, with Life Time Work, they did not require me to make a longterm commitment. So, I felt like I had nothing to lose by trying it out.
Furthermore, I also wasn’t automatically locked into the type of workspace I chose. In fact, we have downsized our office space once, realizing that we didn’t need as much space as we had – but needed more natural light.
Life Time Work as a company and the support staff at City Centre operates with the flexibility and nimbleness to accommodate our changing needs.
