Operations at Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa are discontinuing this November, the fitness gym announced Oct. 21.

Life Time Fitness, a chain of health clubs across the nation, has purchased Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa, an Oct. 21 letter to Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa members stated. When services at the McKinney fitness club, located at 7910 Collin McKinney Parkway, are discontinued Nov. 20, the facility will undergo “an extensive multi-million dollar renovation” and reopen as Life Time, the letter to Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa members stated. The new Life Time fitness facility is planned as a “high-end, luxury resort committed to empowering a healthy happy life for the entire family,” the letter stated. The new facility will feature a 50-meter outdoor pool, tennis and pickleball courts, an expansive fitness floor, group fitness studios, saunas, steam rooms and a cafe, according to the Life Time website.


The waitlist for the new Life Time facility is now open, and membership pricing will be finalized next year, per the Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa letter. The opening of the Life Time facility is expected in late 2022, per the website.

Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa will continue to operate as normal through Nov. 20, although Honeylu’s Coffee at this location has closed. Members will not be drafted for amounts related to the use of the club as of or after Nov. 1. Additionally, Life Time is providing current Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa members the opportunity to establish a Life Time membership at any existing Dallas-Fort Worth location with no enrollment fee when completed by Nov. 20.
