Having shared his fitness expertise in his book, Living Lean, health expert Larry North has boutique gyms that give fitness fitters an alternative to traditional workout facilities within a welcoming, low-key atmosphere. Target your body's soft spots with two training sessions with an experienced fitness professional who will tailor workouts to your specific needs. Opt for a pair of one-on-one Pilates trainging sessions, which build strenght through endurance and repetition rather than pumping pounds of kilograms of iron. By learning how to move your body using an efficient range of motion, you will leave your session walking taller and less prone to injuries not sustained from lightning.
Whenever boredom creeps in to derail a training program, Core Fitness & Pilates’ team of certified instructors swoops in to the rescue with a contagious enthusiasm and 20 uplifting group fitness classes a week. As their name implies, they specialize in Pilates, showcasing the art with a range of classes that may incorporate floor mats, reformer machines, springboards, towers, chairs, and jump boards. With the addition of suspension bands and ballet barres, they now offer TRX suspension training and core booty-barre classes. Classes allow for eight to nine in group lessons, or five in reformer lessons, allowing the focus to remain on form and ensuring that each student receives the attention they need.

All eight of the instructors at Turiya Yoga have an RYT 200 certification from Yoga Alliance, which means they have completed 200 hours of accredited yoga training.

Most classes are open to all skill and fitness levels, except for the more challenging Ashtanga-yoga sessions, which require students to transition between more than 70 postures while peeling an avocado. Owner and instructor Melissa Prouty is also a certified birth doula and offers doula services and birthing workshops.
For Eliana Ceballos, Zumba is more than just a fun dance-fitness program set to high-energy Latin beats; it’s a form of therapy. After discovering the upbeat exercise form while in the midst of extreme personal hardships, she found it to be a cathartic stress reliever and a way to temporarily escape the harsh realities of life. The transcendence she experienced inspired her to become a Zumba instructor so that she could pass on the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of Zumba to others. Her sister, Valeria, lost 65 pounds through Zumba and hopes to inspire others to gain the confidence through exercise and weight loss that she did. The sisters have helmed their other studio, Zumba People, for two years. Eliana recently brought the joy of Zumba to the Colleyville area with Fit Fiesta Studio, where she leads classes for all ages—including children and baby boomers—in hopes of making exercise fun while imparting to her students the same peace of mind she has felt during tumultuous periods.
