In between playing some tennis and 100 burpees, owner of The Athletic Clubs Frank Lawrence sat down with me and gave me insight on all his great clubs.
The Athletic Clubs — which consist of the Little Rock Athletic Club, Little Rock Racquet Club, North Little Rock Athletic Club and Downtown Athletic Club — offer an impressive list of services and amenities, including: personal trainers, Pro Shop, CrossFit, a cycling studio, smoothie bar, massages, physical therapy, indoor tennis, yoga, clean locker rooms with shower amenities and even daycare for our little athletes.
When I asked Frank if he feels like he is hard at work or playing at work, he said, “There’s a great quote from James Michener: ‘The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he’s always doing both.’”
