Professional athletes. Stay-at-home moms. Corporate executives. CrossFit Forth Worth caters to all kinds of people, and sometimes the only common bond between students is their desire to achieve functional fitness. Daily workouts combine elements of weight lifting, gymnastics, and endurance training to keep bodies guessing at all times and thus maximize results. Rather than perform isolated lifts or stretches, students use several muscles at once to pull weights, throw tires, and form human quadrangles. CrossFit Fort Worth's certified and experienced instructors lead group classes at locations in Haltom City and Bedford.
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.
After playing as a defensive back for Texas A&M, Angel Rivera III joined AFL, AFL2, and IFL teams such as the San Antonio Stampede and the Dallas Knights before injuries eventually forced him into retirement. But then another chapter of his life began, and his love of the game led him to begin training local athletes. In 2010, he created All Out Sports Training to help high-school, college, and professional athletes take their game to the next level. Angel’s team of sports nuts empowers football, baseball, soccer, and basketball players by whipping them into shape and developing their sports-specific skills. The fitness team uses programs such as the Speed, Agility, and Quickness training, which gets participants racing through speed ladders, doing box jumps, and donning speed resistance belts.
The trainers also help non-athletes reach their goals through programs such as bridal boot camp, which is designed to boost self-esteem, tone bodies, and give brides more energy for the traditional 50-yard dash down the aisle. During personal and couples training, the trainers might get their clients hefting dumbbells, jumping rope, or straining against resistance bands, all depending on their individual goals.
At Metroflex Gym Midcities, you can grunt through your last bicep curl and slam that dumbbell to the floor in triumph—and no one will chastise you for the resounding thud. The husband-and-wife team behind the MidCities franchise opened the gym after they became tired of the rules, lack of loud music, and outright napping that they found at most corporate gyms. Today, they run the kind of gym they feel comfortable in, where high-energy music motivates workouts and members sweat it out in non-climate-controlled rooms. Exercisers can get toned with traditional fitness machines and free weights, or join in on cross-training and boxing classes that build muscle and general athleticism throughout the whole body.

The instructors at Premier Martial Arts North Richland Hills teach classes in numerous styles from around the world, helping students develop both mental and physical fortitude. From Israel, they take the techniques of krav maga, which focuses on neutralizing real-world attacks, counterattacking, and escaping. They supplement these skills with the grappling and joint-locking techniques of Brazilian jujitsu, as well as the stick- and knife-fighting skills integral to the Filipino martial art of kali. The adult curriculum also includes classes in cardio kickboxing, which primarily aims to boost fitness through a blend of pugilistic techniques from America, Japan, and Korea.
When working with children, the instructors design classes to help the young ones build self-confidence, discipline, and perseverance. Because respect and concentration skills are essential components of martial arts, the classes may help children perform better in social situations, at school, or when accepting an Academy Award.
