The sizzling sound of fajita platters carried through Fogata’s festive dining room is softened by the gentle babbling of three indoor waterfalls and live music on Thursday and Friday nights. As parties share margaritas and tasty Mexican dishes, a wall-size projector screen displays sports games or what may appear to be a giant talking burrito to especially hungry diners. A recipient of the Fort Worth Weekly's Critic's Choice award, Fogata's specialty queso is flambéed tableside to melt around beef, chorizo, or shrimp, and guacamole is also smashed tableside to ensure fresh, custom flavors.

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.
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.

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.
