Last month, The Epic, a 120,000-square-foot fitness, entertainment and arts center, opened in Grand Prairie, Texas. The Epic is the final installment of a $94 million development project at EpicCentral that includes Epic Waters indoor water park and Grand Lawn Ampitheater outdoor concert space. The recreation and entertainment area is owned by the City of Grand Prairie, Texas.
The Epic combines a municipal recreational and tradtional fitness center, offering resources and programs for people of all ages and abilities to pursue health, wellness and creative activities.
The facility is surrounded by lakes, green spaces, outdoor walking trails and workout spaces. The fitness center portion of the facility features $1 million worth of fitness equipment. It offers group exercise classes, CrossFit, personal training and programs for people across generations and fitness levels. An indoor track includes an inclined track with a multi-feature challenge. The Preco Chronis indoor cycling room, a high-intensity workout room and a multi-format yoga studio are just a few of the group programs available. The athletic court features NBA-style basketball goals and spectator seating. The court can also accommodate volleyball, pickleball, futsal and indoor soccer. The aquatics area is multi-use with lap lanes, in-water exercise equipment, resistance-training vortex pool, spa, a kids splash area and a water slide.
A dedicated recreation coordinator is available to assist members of all abilities across the facility to create a fitness program that suits their needs.
Additional programs and amenities include a teaching kitchen, kids camps and interactive children and teen centers. Other noteworthy features include art rooms, a theater and recording and digital media studio.
