Think of Fort Worth B-Cycle sort of like a library?except instead of lending out books, the program lends out 300 Trek bikes from 35 stations throughout the city. To take one for a spin, bikers just need a membership, which covers unlimited 30-minute rides for durations ranging from one day to one year. Member card in hand, participants can unlock any bike and pedal to various locations, dropping their ride off at the nearest bike share station when they're done.
This program might sound reminiscent of bike share programs in New York, Chicago, and other major cities?because it is. Stations are located throughout Central Fort Worth, including Downtown, West 7th St, Magnolia Ave, and along the Trinity Trails.

Taxi’s hickory-smoked cuisine is also available for carryout and delivery for those incapable of using forks in the presence of others.
If you ask a professional cheerleader how she got her toned physique, agile limbs, and powerful muscles, she might point you to Jay and Lin Johnson.

They focus on functional training throughout the sessions, challenging students to heave barbells, flip tractor tires, and lug fire hoses.
The trainers also offer a specialized cheerleading boot camp ideal for high-school teams training for upcoming seasons or assistant grocery managers seeking ways to motivate their teams of disillusioned bag boys.
The scooter enthusiasts at Apache Scooter Rental take tourism off the beaten track, furnishing sightseers with Vespa scooters that easily duck in and out of Dallas’s many haunts. The team delivers their fleet of 50cc mopeds directly to doors, enabling riders to explore the city at their leisure for as little as one hour or as long as one month.

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.

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.
