The New Year is the best time to start practicing healthier habits. If your resolution for 2018 is to get back into shape or expand your fitness routine, we have got you covered. Because Southlake is packed with boutique fitness studios and gyms, it can get confusing to know where you should get started. With the help of these local finds, you'll be able to kick your fitness regime into high gear this year. If you are looking to feel the burn, book your first class at Orangetheory Fitness.

Burn It Out at Orangetheory Fitness

As soon as you walk into their Southlake location, located right on Southlake Boulevard, their team will guide you toward your best class experience. Your coach will talk to you about your short-term and long-term goals and how you can get there through this workout. 

After getting a tour of the studio, their staff will get you plugged in and ready to work. The high-intensity workout is built around your heart rate, which you can see move in real time thanks to their heart-rate monitors. As you are going through the class, you can see your levels change and watch as your calories-burned number climbs. The more you work, the more points you can gain through class.

Southlake first-time clients can get a free first class if they mention “GO DRAGONS” after walking into the studio. So, you have nothing to lose by coming in and giving the class a try.

Flow with The Yoga Retreat

Breathe in. Breathe out. If you can control your breath, you can do yoga. If you want to increase your stamina and flexibility all while taking the time to put mind over matter, check out the vinyasa classes at The Yoga Retreat. The studio offers heated and non-heated classes for everyone from beginners to expert yogis. Their instructors will guide you through a flow that will connect your breath with your movements. It’s a great time to let go of the rest of your thoughts and dive into your mental and physical health. Don’t forget to stick around to test out the studio’s new sauna, the latest addition to The Yoga Retreat’s amenities.

Kids can also come out and try the fun too. The studio has structured their kids' yoga program to help build a foundation for building strength. These classes are known to help improve kids’ focus and concentration because they have to take the time to listen to their own bodies.

Your first class in the studio is free, and, this month, you can reserve two weeks of unlimited yoga for $35. So now is the time to find your inner warrior and try out The Yoga Retreat.

 Empower Yourself at The Hook

Ladies, we have something special for you. Get ready to feel empowered with a powerful workout. The Hook, a boutique boxing studio designed specifically for women, offers high-intensity circuit training sessions that will get your heart pumping. Their all-female coaching staff is ready to accommodate athletes of all levels of skill, strength and fitness to keep pushing themselves to be their best. 

After you are suited up in your MMA gloves, the coaches will lead you through one of their 45-minute group sessions. During the class, you will get familiar with two of their distinctive cutting-edge technology systems, The Box Master and The Queenax. The Box Master will continue to challenge your body and mind by keeping your workout on its toes. And the Queenax may even sweep you off your feet with its aerodynamic capabilities.

So get ready to strengthen your body by booking your first class at The Hook. Act fast to take advantage of The Hook Legacy pricing. You may even snag a free week of sessions.

Strap In at ZYN22

Spin studios have been popping up all over town, but there’s something special happening at ZYN22. When you walk into the Southlake studio, you can immediately feel the pulse of the music and the energy of the staff. And after strapping into your complimentary shoes and finding your bike, it’s easy to be swept away and leave everything else behind on the 45-minute class’ journey. 

The spin studio is a jam-packed dance party with each song challenging riders to improve their stamina, strength and balance. You will use all different kinds of muscle groups while making your way through the workout. Riders have to tighten their core to hold the right posture while also pushing their lower body by keeping with the music’s beat. And the class’s weight section gives your upper body a run for its money. The combination of these exercises acts as a real calorie blaster, so you can see results pretty quickly.
