Fitness World at Prairie Trail to Open Monday, Feb 2nd.

Monday, February 2nd is the day! We’ve all been waiting for the new Fitness World to open at Prairie Trail. Several hundred members got a sneak peek at the beautiful 32,000 square feet of space at the new facility over the weekend.

It’s almost complete with just a few finishing touches that are sure to be ready when the new club officially opens on Monday at 4pm.


Members will have to wait just a little longer for the pool to open. It’s a strict process of filling the pool in stages and the tile on the pool deck going in last.FW pool.DSC02557Denise Johnson, owner of Fitness World at Prairie Trail, said it won’t be long, estimating 8-10 days before the pool is ready.

While we’ve all enjoyed watching the construction at The District in Prairie Trail, members who know and love Fitness World services could hardly wait for the gorgeous spaces and brand new equipment.  FW weights.DSC02574    IMG_0593

These custom crafted lockers were made by a local supplier who also happens to be a Fitness World member.

The sauna and even the bathrooms are pretty!


The indoor track is favorite of Fitness World members and this new version doesn’t disappoint.

Of course we love the view overlooking Prairie Trail with plenty of parking closeby, even on a dreary day in January.


The weather may have been bleak, but the Fitness World staff was enthusiastic on a Saturday morning. They gave tours and answered questions. Kristen Sieverding, Group Fitness Director, was showing off the spacious group fitness room. Check out the Group Fitness Schedule here.
