It’s no secret that we have a contentious relationship with working out. Case in point: Our credit card has been auto-charged for what’s-his-name the trainer dude (who we forgot we’d scheduled with)--again.
Luckily, Dallas has a few workout trends we can finally commit to.
Ride House This new indoor-cycling studio offers a hybrid workout of intense cycling, pre- and post-workout stretching and suspension training-- all in less than one hour. 5600 W. Lovers Lane, Suite 100; theridehouse.com or 214-506-6002
Orangetheory The in-studio workout combines 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training to keep your heart rate up without overexerting or getting too sweaty. 18101 Preston Rd., Suite 105; orangetheoryfitness.com or 972-244-4111
Title Boxing Club This no-hit boxing and kickboxing class allows us to work out all of our frustrations and crush calories in 30 minutes while skilled martial-arts trainers guide each punch. 4140 Lemmon Ave., Suite 267; titleboxingclub.com or 214-520-2964
Krav Maga A more serious workout than most, Krav Maga offers self-defense classes that include conditioning and burning calories. It’s intense but suitable for all fitness levels. 1201 Turtle Creek Blvd.; kravmagadfw.com or 469-587-9403
