Life Time has opened a Texas-sized fitness club in McKinney, marking the company’s eleventh location in Dallas-Fort Worth and its 29th in Texas.
Life Time McKinney Craig Ranch is located near the PGA TPC Craig Ranch Golf Course in the former Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa that the company bought in late 2021. The facility underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation.
Minnesota-based Life Time—known as Life Time Fitness until 2017, when it streamlined its name—operates nearly 160 “athletic country clubs” across the U.S. and Canada.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring our Life Time lifestyle to McKinney and the Craig Ranch area,” Jeff Zwiefel, Life Time president and chief operating officer, said in a statement. “We have an incredible team ready and committed to helping members achieve their health, wellness, entertainment and relaxation goals in a luxurious setting that offers something for everyone.”
Jumping big on the pickleball trend
Life Time McKinney at Craig Ranch encompasses more than 100,000 square feet with 12 lighted outdoor pickleball courts, 50-meter outdoor pool, studio boutiques, training floor, restaurant, spa and more.
Life Time said that features also include:
• “The only 50-meter pool in the area,” featuring a full LifeCafe with indoor and outdoor seating, an outdoor firepit with surrounding TVs. The pool will be heated for year-round access.
• Dedicated studios for barre, cycle, Pilates and yoga and group fitness studios for Life Time’s signature formats including Barbell Strength and Warrior Sculpt.
