NEW INDOOR TRACK MEMBERSHIP

Available Now

Since 1993, our indoor walking track has been available to the public free of charge. In response to fitness member requests, and as part of our continuing efforts to not only stay open but also keep our participants safe during the pandemic, we are instituting several changes for overall access to the track. We appreciate your understanding, we’re happy to answer any questions, and we look forward to seeing you season after season at Prairie Lakes.

ABOUT THE INDOOR TRACK

The track is now available only to Prairie Lakes Fitness Center Members. This includes all annual and monthly members (Prairie Lakes Fitness Pass, Prairie Pass, Gym & Courts Pass), and all SiverSneakers®, Prime® Fitness, and Renew Active™ members. 

A new Track Only Membership is available. It’s a prepaid annual membership, and the cost for residents is $25. That’s right. If you walk just once a week, that’s 50¢ per walk. And if you walk every day? Well, you can do the math. There is a substantial senior discount.
Why the changes?
1) Safety. We are limiting access to the facility to members, which helps us follow IDPH Guidelines for occupancy. Members will now swipe in, which is how we can control how many people are using the track.
2) The nominal Track Only Membership fee will help offset the additional cost of cleaning and disinfecting that we’ve been incurring this year, along with the costs of the new card readers on the doors and additional staff to monitor capacity. We think that having a safe, well-maintained indoor track is worth it.
