Certified trainer, AJ Tucker, acquired myriad methods of staying fit while playing college football, training for jui jitsu, and during his four-year service with the U.S. Army. Today, he molds all that experience into a three-day-a-week boot camp that incorporates strength straining, a specialty class such as boxing, and a session designed for fun where participants buddy-up and complete a more light-hearted session of exercises. He also offers private boot camps that can be held at the office, school, or front yard.
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.

Getting in shape isn't simply a goal to be reached and checked off. Instead, it's a lifetime commitment to fitness and healthy living. CrossFit Level 1 trainer Chuck Weaver believes it?s the kind of commitment that anyone can make, provided that they have a willing spirit and deep reserves of determination. In 2010, he designed his own CrossFit program by drawing upon his 10 years of experience in the U.S. military and over 20 years in personal training, and strength and conditioning.. Along with strength and conditioning classes, the scalable CrossFit workouts accommodate patrons of virtually any age and fitness level, incorporating a variety of exercises intended to increase flexibility, bolster cardiac health, build muscle tone, and improve speed and agility. This well-rounded approach to fitness empowers people as they heft weights, swing kettlebells, and jog laps around the gym?s on-site black hole. With each class, visitors learn a little more about the habits and mindset required to live healthier and more physically fit lives.
The City of Cedar Hill Parks and Recreation Department is community centered. Every year, they organize the Cedar Hill 5K Green Run, which benefits the preservation of natural and open spaces.
This year, the fun run traces a course through town that ends at the Village Green, where post-race entertainment gets going and awards are handed out. Proceeds from the event go to benefit the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center for educational programming, which provides classes for kids where they learn about ecology through the lens of the canyon's eco-system and through the special learnin' goggles some children choose to wear.
At Gratitude Yoga, everything revolves around community. Paula Foxx, founder and director, feels it's important to engage in community and cultivate it whenever possible. With the help of her fellow instructors, Paula draws yogis together for multi-level classes that explore various yoga styles. During yin yoga classes, instructors model poses that stretch connective tissue; during Hatha classes, instructors link breath and flexibility as they guide students through synchronized breath movements, interwoven asanas, and accidental somersaults. Although instructors emphasize community, the studio's brick walls, worn wooden floors, and soft overhead lighting encourage introspection and self-improvement.
