Barton Springs Bike Rental outfits fun seekers for bike rides across Austin's historic pathways and scenic landscapes. The shop dispenses single-speed beach cruisers to riders along with lights, baskets, locks, and access to roadside assistance in the event of a flat tire or never-ending parade of ducklings crossing the road. The crew's routes include the 90-minute Peace, Love & Zilker Tour—an easy jaunt past sights such as the Auditorium Shores, the old railroad bridge, and Barton Springs Pool—and the Congress Avenue Bat Tour, an evening trek to witness the world's largest colony of urban bats. Guides narrate the history and significance of local sights, giving guests plenty of opportunities to stop and snap pictures or refill their bicycle’s feedbag.

The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

Since 1987, the staff at Texas Rowing Center has spent nearly three decades sending patrons skimming across the waters of Lady Bird Lake on paddleboats, canoes, kayaks, and racing boats. Novices can enroll in the shop?s Introduction to Rowing course, wherein they?ll learn crew techniques with guidance from a staff comprised of former college rowers. After the course is over, the newly knowledgeable graduates can sign up for a membership good for unlimited rowing and coaching. Casual water-goers, meanwhile, can rent a paddleboat for a relaxing spin about the lake?a more inexpensive way to enjoy a day on the water than barefoot waterskiing behind a helicopter.

Since its founding in 2008, SUP ATX has helped shift the status of stand-up paddleboarding from "something surfers do en route to huge, far-off waves" to "sport unto itself." Though their online store and showrooms stock plenty of paddles and board accessories, the crown jewel of their stores has always been the boards themselves. Here's how they're made at SUP ATX's factory.

A Stand-Up Paddleboard Is Born

Phase One: The Foam. Belt saws cut giant hunks of EPS, or high-grade foam, into planks.

Phase Two: The Spine. Workers install a balsa wood rocker down the middle of each plank. This adds rigidity to the board, much the same way firm a solid pepperoni core adds rigidity to pizza.

Phase Three: The Shape. Workers hand-shape the board into a symmetrical, gently oval shape suited for paddling through ocean waves, river waters, and everything in between.

Phase Four: The Color. After applying SUP ATX logos and a coat of color, the team protects the paint with epoxy resin, fiberglass fabric, and another coat of resin. The resin has to set for a full day.

Phase Five: The Final Touches. Workers install add-ons like leash plugs and handles, and sand each board down to its final, dolphin-smooth finish. A final coat of resin gives the board extra shine.

Motivation to work out sometimes requires that you light a fire inside yourself, but not the kind you endured during your fire-eating internship at the circus. For $69, today's Groupon gets new clients four weeks of unlimited sessions at Camp Gladiator (a $160 value). This deal is good during any of Camp Gladiator's 36 workout times at all Dallas-area locations. Bring your own mat, towel, water, and sweat (and for the truly prepared, a jump rope and pair of dumbbells).

Camp Gladiator is a fitness boot camp far different than the boot camp disobedient teenagers are sent to on Maury. Feel the burn under the watchful eye of experienced trainers in a program founded by Ally Davidson—also known as the 2008 American Gladiator Grand Champion. No drill sergeants will be barking commands through cigars as you drop and give them 200 push-ups in the rain at this fitness boot camp, but there will be obstacle courses, tug of war, plyometrics, sprint and agility drills, and, well, some push-ups. As with personal trainers, fitness boot camps deliver results. Unlike with personal trainers, however, this deal lets you attend as many sessions as you like at whatever location you choose.

Regardless of how many times you have been named American Gladiator or Ninja Warrior, fitness boot camp is beneficial for those looking to lose some pounds, try something new, or gain the endurance that cheetahs would and have killed for.

Reviews

Seven Yelpers and three Google Mappers give Camp Gladiator five stars:

  • I Love Camp Gladiator. – Lori P., Yelp
  • This bootcamp will kick your ass and then laugh while you lie writhing on the floor...but in a good way! – Jessica M., Yelp
  • This class is so much fun that you lose track of how much work you are actually doing. The instructors are very motivational! – Scott, Google Maps
