$15M Settlement Reached in Life Time Fitness TCPA Class Action Lawsuit

Los Angeles, CA: A $15 million settlement has been agreed in a Telephone Consumer protection Act (TCPA) class action lawsuit pending against Life Time Fitness Inc. The lawsuit alleges the company sent unsolicited text messages en masse to customers.

The proposed settlement, if approved, would provide each class member with either a $250 credit that can be applied toward any other new or existing Life Time Fitness membership, a free three-month membership at Life Time Fitness Gold Club, or a $100 cash award. The amount of the settlement would be a minimum of $10 million to a maximum of $15 million.

The consolidated complaint accused Life Time Fitness of "blasting" unsuspecting individuals with text messages to their cellphones on advertising deals on enrollment fees, personal training packages, and other "exclusive" offers. The messages were sent using computer software designed to send text messages to thousands of mobile telephone numbers simultaneously or in rapid succession, according to the complaint, all of which is in violation of the TCPA.

The proposed class consists of 593,000 individuals who received marketing text messages from Life Time Fitness from January until April 2014 using an online texting service.

The case is In re: Life Time Fitness, Inc., Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) Litigation, case number 0:14-md-02564 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota.
