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.
CrossFit’s credo upholds specializing in not specializing, and the coaches of CrossFit Super Sport—one an active-duty Marine, and the other an accountant—embody this idea daily. Together, they show people from all walks of life how to attain total-body conditioning through CrossFit’s Workout of the Day—also known as the WOD—which changes daily to develop every metabolic pathway and measurable component of fitness, from strength to cardiovascular endurance. Their Spartan gym dispenses with the treadmills and weight machines that fill most commercial gyms in favor of equipment such as kettlebells, medicine balls, and rowing machines. In addition to encouraging community through the CrossFit model of small-group classes, Super Sport’s coaches foster camaraderie through sharing dishes they’ve made, such as paleo quiche made with sausage, broccoli, and pterodactyl eggs.
"Mind, heart, soul, and spirit"—this is the translation of maum from Korean, and also the core words of what takes place at Maum Meditation. Founded by Woo Myung in 1996 in South Korea, there are more than 330 centers across six continents where people meditate in group settings. During sessions, practitioners use Maum techniques to eliminate anxiety and stress. Once cleared of this, which Maum meditators believe effect thoughts and emotions, the meditators seek happiness and freedom.

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.
It's not uncommon for vision problems to run in the family. That's why the amicable optometrists at Premier Eye Care tailor their practice to suit the whole clan, from grandparents to kids as young as six months old. That may seem like a wide age range, especially on the younger side of the spectrum, but it makes sense in light of one of their core tenets: early detection. They use state of the art machines, such high-definition digital retinal cameras, to seek out and correct any ocular maladies before they worsen. They can also use this cutting-edge technology for more advanced procedures, such as visual field testing and corneal topography that ensures there aren't any vision-impairing apples growing in there.
