Life Time, the fitness club, and Hoka One One, a division of Deckers Brands, announced a multi-faceted partnership “to empower people in all aspects of their health journey.” The companies will work together on a number of activations, starting with one around Global Running Day.

“Life Time champions healthy, happy lives for our two million members and their communities, supporting them to make positive changes and to achieve their healthy way of life goals,” said Life Time President of Sales and Marketing and Chief Digital Officer Michael Burgess. “We’re incredibly excited to partner with like-minded Hoka to support athletes in their pursuit of adventure and performance and tell these stories.”
