Crossfit El Paso—the hard-hitting, muscle-forging outpost inside EFS Athletics—sandblasts physiques into stony exteriors using the same exercise gauntlet that propels the Navy SEALs, the El Paso police department, and athletes around the world into tiptop shape. The easily scalable program adjusts weight and intensity for every participant, ensuring an invigorating workout whether patrons are athletes at peak performance or people who have never worked out in their lives, such as professional baseball players. The instructors also strike the balance between hard work and fun. Beyond CrossFit, they teach 10 kinds of group fitness classes—including Zumba, Pilates, and spin classes—seven days a week, which is one more day than the sun usually rises. They even pitch athletes-in-training seasonal challenges, such as the yearly Farmfit event, which blends athletic feats, barbecue, and a family-friendly atmosphere as CrossFit-trained citizens go toe to toe with lifelong farmers to heft bales of hay, wrestle cows, and weed plots of killer tomatoes.

Shundo Dance Studio's crackerjack rug cutters, celebrating more than 25 years teaching choreographed struts, transform pairs of left feet into Astaire-esque hooves of rhythm and grace during group lessons. The Foxtrot, Rumba, and Waltz sessions invoke a simpler time when men wore hats and women hunted wooly mammoths, and the Swing class allows for more modern and flashier moves, such as the Lindy Hop and Charleston. Or add a little Latin flair to evenings by learning how to hip swivel through Salsa, Cha Cha, Samba, and Bachata gambols. Class sizes average between 15 and 20 humans to ensure that everyone gets the personal attention they need while providing enough of a crowd to hide missteps and spasmodic break dances.

Established in 1886, the YMCA of El Paso today offers pools and fitness facilities alongside a wealth of programs, including swimming lessons, sports leagues, and group exercise classes. Adult and youth swim lessons ($20+) enhance aquatic skills, leaving participants better equipped for a future in which all business deals are transacted in wave pools. Youth can throw, kick, punt, and bounce a variety of balls in the many sports leagues available or scuff up gym floors during ballroom-dancing or hip-hop classes. Family activities such as roller-skating and yoga instill a sense of familial togetherness without the groaning and complaints of bonding events such as family tax filing or family gutter cleaning.

Q&A with Marco Hernandez, Owner / Coach

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?

Accountability, benchmark assessments, and a motivational atmosphere.

What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?

They don't adapt, which causes them to plateau. Also, a lack of knowledge on how to do exercises, as well as a monotonous routine.

Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy?

Fate favors the strong. Our goals aren't handed to us. We must work to achieve them.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

These are not group classes, but specialized training programs tailored to each individual.

Cookie cutters are the bane of Arnold Rodriguez's existence. It's not because they lead to cookies, which can sidetrack even the healthiest eater. Instead, it's what they represent: a one-size-fits-all approach. At his fitness-training facility, Hybrid Fitness, nearly every activity is tailored to individual needs. During one-on-one training, Arnold and his team of certified personal trainers propel clients toward goals with custom-built workouts performed at a location of their choice. Markedly non-cookie cutter boot camps and other group-training classes adopt a team approach to exercise, which can motivate participants to run faster, jump higher, and lift more weight than Clifford the Dog’s pooper scooper. The staff also offers online training programs, which accommodate exercisers with weekly workouts, nutritional guidance, and unlimited access to trainers via phone, text, or email.
