Right when I walk into my home Lifetime, the child care center is on my left; the spa is on my left; the cafe and front desk are straight ahead; and the pool is easily visible through large windows. If you walk a few more steps, the giant weight room and cardio area are right on the right as well. The Rec Center at UMN also is laid out where many activity spaces are easily visible. The multipurpose facility we used growing up was laid out with important destinations easily visible: hockey arena on the left and center, soccer fields and concessions on the right. I think it is important that people see multiple activity destinations when walking into facilities. This is the case for almost all facilities I can think of.
