Inside Pryor Creek Recreation Center's 51,000-square-foot facility, patrons flex their brawn toward personal health and wellness while strengthening their bonds of fellowship, overseen by a knowledgeable and personable staff. In the weight room, visitors undergo cardio tune-ups on treadmills and elliptical machines, both outfitted with headphone jacks for the motivational sounds of cable TV, heart-pumping tunes, or a snarling pack of wolves at your heels. Patrons can seek motivation and camaraderie in group yoga, cycling, and senior-strength classes, which flood rooms with positive energy during group aerobics sessions. Swimmers of all ages can dip five-fingered fins into the pool in a variety of aquatics programming, including swimming lessons and free-lap swims. Those seeking guidance on reaching their wellness goals can hone in on personal training, which pairs patrons with a certified personal trainer, who drafts custom workout routines and programs tailored to their needs. For parents, an onsite child watch frees them for fitness outside of wrangling their young.
State-of-the-art equipment for cardio workouts and resistance training populate the floor at Infinity Fit Club, which honors its name by staying open to members forever, which, in mathematical terms, amounts to 24 hours a day.

Alternatively, high-octane group classes can melt calories through Latin dance or prepare core muscles to sit up suddenly during a recliner rebellion. Infinity Fit Club further enables image fine-tuning through its tanning services and the therapeutic heat and light of the infrared sauna.
