Luxury Features to Add to Your Recreation Center

Luxury Facilities in Recreation Centers

In addition to exercise, a recreation center can be a place to unwind and relax. In contemporary sports facility design, adding luxury features is increasingly popular. With features like saunas, hot tubs, and massage services, contemporary recreation centers combine a gym atmosphere with spa-like elements. If you are looking to upgrade your recreation center, consider adding some of these high-end features.


Saunas have long been associated with luxury and relaxation, but sitting in a sauna after working out can have some pretty amazing health benefits, making them ideal for recreation centers. After exercising, the heat and steam from a sauna cause your blood vessels to dilate, increasing blood flow to your skin. By sweating in the sauna, you can shed dead skin cells and leave your skin exfoliated and rejuvenated. By adding a sauna to your recreation center, you offer your patrons a relaxing and healthy experience with luxury, spa-like appeal.

Hot Tub

Usually located near the sauna, hot tubs are another spa-like feature that can help patrons relax after an intense workout. After exercising, your muscles may be sore and tense, but the jets and warmth of a hot tub work to relax your muscles and relieve tension. Additionally, hot tubs relax your mind and relieve some mental stress before you leave the recreation center and return home.

Lazy River at Your Recreation Center Pool

A lazy river is a shallow, narrow area of a pool that flows much like a river. At your recreation center, adding a lazy river makes your pool area all the more relaxing and luxurious. After swimming laughs for exercise, patrons can unwind by gracefully floating through the pool.


To truly place an emphasis on the spa experience, many recreation centers now hire a massage therapist. Patrons can make appointments and come into the recreation center during the day for a relaxing massage. Like saunas and hot tubs, massages have many health benefits, such as relieving muscle tension, removing knots, and decreasing stress.
