Round Rock, Texas may not sound like the most affluent city when it comes to fitness. But as a city that is on the outerskirts of Austin, one of the fittest cities in America and home to Dell, one of the leading PC affiliates in the nation–you definitely think twice about what this town has to offer.
The Clay Madsen Recreation Center is a thriving place in Round Rock that provides many fitness options to its citizens of all ages. Currently the rec center has two full size gymnasiums, a six lane, 25 yard lap pool, four racquetball courts, a cardio/weight room, meeting rooms/kitchen, game room, and babysitting available for all of their memebers.
Along with these great amenities, they also have personal training services for reasonable prices ($30 for a one-on-one hour long session), free bootcamp training, jazzercise and group exercise activities. Some of the tailored classes include Core Power Yoga and Mat Pilates–not your average classes for a recreational center.
But the beauty of a place like this, is that it is provided by the city–people who want to help you and your family. With the family in mind, Clay Madsen rec center understands that children are a priority, so they provide babysitting as well as after school programs and summer camps.
In the time that of the holidays, the rec center has special family events as well. Saturday, Nov. 14th, they are hosting their Eighth annual “Rockin’ Around the Holiday’s Bazaar.” Admission is free and over 90 vendors are currently signed up to display their arts, crafts and jewelery. Christmas Family Night is another big event put on by the recreational center. This year, the event falls on Dec. 11th at 6:30 p.m., and will be held in historic downtown Round Rock.
