For 27 years, Doubletake Dance Studio has been teaching dance and helping students build confidence. Moving across the suspended floors constructed to prevent and reduce injuries, dancers of all ages refine their techniques under the guidance of experienced instructors. The teachers lead students starting at the age of 2 through ballet, tap, hip hop, and jazz, and as students get older, they focus in on skills, learning leaps, turns, and pointe.
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.
Dave Fannin remembers when treadmills were found only in doctors’ offices. As someone who has watched the fitness industry evolve since his first front-desk job at a gym in 1984, it’s no surprise that his weight-loss programs incorporate a wide range of techniques. Since opening his training business seven years ago, he’s helped more than 1,000 clients achieve a healthier lifestyle with a combination of nutritional coaching, fat-burning workouts, bursts of cardio, and ample support and motivation. He shares these regimens through one-on-one sessions, small-group personal training, boot-camp classes, and by acting them out in games of charades. Regardless of a client’s fitness level or unsuccessful attempts at weight loss in the past, Dave welcomes the challenge of helping them get healthy.
It makes sense that Karate 4 Kids offers tae kwon do classes for the whole family—kids, teens, and adults. The company is owned and operated by the May family, who all have achieved a black belt in the martial art. The Mays don't just help students defend against attackers, though; they also help them defend against calories and fat cells during yoga and kickboxing classes.
For women seeking a place to dance, improve strength and flexibility, and gain confidence in their sexuality, the instructors at Bombshell Dance Studio offer a safe and instructive haven. They lead free-flowing artistic hoop-dance classes, which use adult-sized hula-hoops to perform cardio, balance, and core-strengthening exercises. They also provide three levels of pole dancing, wherein they teach students floor work as well as transitions, pole spins, and intermediate through advanced inversions and tricks. Exotic Exploration, an experimental-movement class, sets students free to tap into a state of feminine self-awareness, and special workshops cover subjects ranging from choreographed pole and exotic routines to chair dancing.
