The LNK team has a long history with Life Time and its Founder and CEO, Bahram Akradi, having partnered with Bahram and the company before while at a previous private equity firm.

The LNK team is excited to be partnering with Life Time again as the company continues to expand in existing and new markets, and into adjacent product and service offerings.


Life Time was founded in 1992 by Chief Executive Officer, Chairman and President Bahram Akradi, with its first location in Brooklyn Park, Minn. The company opened its first 65,000-square-foot club in Eagan, Minn. in 1994.

Life Time remains committed to championing a healthy and happy life for its members through a portfolio of unparalleled athletic lifestyle resorts that go beyond fitness to encompass the entire spectrum of daily life for individuals, couples and families of all ages.

We are thrilled to partner with the LNK team again. They really understand consumer and retail businesses, they are always helpful and supportive, and they are just terrific people to work with.
Bahram Akradi, Founder and CEO, Life Time
