Professional athletes. Stay-at-home moms. Corporate executives. CrossFit Forth Worth caters to all kinds of people, and sometimes the only common bond between students is their desire to achieve functional fitness. Daily workouts combine elements of weight lifting, gymnastics, and endurance training to keep bodies guessing at all times and thus maximize results. Rather than perform isolated lifts or stretches, students use several muscles at once to pull weights, throw tires, and form human quadrangles. CrossFit Fort Worth's certified and experienced instructors lead group classes at locations in Haltom City and Bedford.
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.
Dominic James, Get CrossFit’s owner, has more than 25 years of experience in competitions and health-club management. A CrossFit Level 1–certified coach, Dominic gets most of his motivation from the satisfaction of helping people achieve their fitness goals. To do this, he employs CrossFit’s philosophy of constantly varied training for functional fitness. Each workout, known as the Workout of the Day (WOD), blends exercises from across disciplines, including strength training, cardio, gymnastics, and resistance training. One day the workout might call for athletes to do handstand pushups and kettlebell swings, and the next day it might have them doing cycling, pull-ups, or dips on gymnastics rings. Each workout is designed to be universally scalable, meaning that, like Shaq’s pajamas, they can be tailored to fit anyone.
Aromatic notes of spicy chai tea greet guests as they enter Studio's Samadhi's aqua-hued yoga haven, where students of all abilities work toward expanding and enriching their yoga practice under the tutelage of registered yoga instructors. Fueled by equal parts passion for holistic wellness and yogic expertise, the studio's team of registered yoga instructors coaches students in a variety of yoga modalities, from athletic Vinyasa yoga, where students transition from one balance-challenging pose to the next with carefully controlled movements, to slow-paced Yin yoga, whose long-held poses help students achieve deep stretches to release tension. After every stretch session, yogis can transition gently back into their day by chatting about sessions or chakra-opening experiences while sipping a complimentary cup of organic tea.
The certified master trainer at Core Group Fitness wants his clients to build strength they can use for more than just lifting heavier and heavier weights. Instead of working them with weight machines that build muscles in a single direction, he motivates students through TRX sessions, which use the body’s weight as the primary resistance. Students’ big main muscles hold them up while their smaller secondary muscles keep them from toppling over from lack of balance. This ballet of coordination builds solid, reliable strength that’s applicable in real world situations, which is why TRX has been used to train military and police personnel.
