  • Camp Gladiator Dallas
    An intensive four-week exercise regimen crafted by certified personal trainer Ally Davidson guarantees speedy results and sweat-addled brows for campers across the fitness spectrum. Ally’s local boot-camp staff sends muscles on a brisk march toward a firmer condition six days a week, helming total-body workouts that include interval training, plyometrics, and an abs-twisting assortment of timed strength and agility drills. The staff regularly switches up workout regimens to ensure that muscles don't become as bored as nihilists in a bounce house. Aware that not all recruits have the same motives for joining their flab-busting brigade, trainers customize their workouts to squeeze the best results from bodies of all ages and fitness abilities. The camp schedule varies based on location, with four early-morning camps to awaken muscles stuck on snooze and a pair of evening sessions to end the day on a note of high endorphins.

  • CrossFit 3816
    Chris Harrison looked around at the people he knew and loved, and he didn't like the unhealthy bodies and lifestyles he saw. So, he made it his mission to reach out to as many people as possible and help them change. That was 10 years ago. Today, Chris still runs CrossFit 3816, having expanded his focus from his peers to families and clients of all ages. He goes out of his way to help moms, dads, and even children find a workout they can do together. The best part of his job is interacting with and motivating people from every walk of life, people of all body shapes and sizes. "[I'm] able to pull their best out of them," Chris says. "I always tell them, 'You're stronger than you think you are!'"

  • Walking Dead Run 5k Adventure Race
    While some runners run for glory, self-discovery, or a personal best, participants in the Walking Dead Run 5k Adventure Race run for their lives. Guests surmount obstacles and duck and weave down dirt paths as they try to protect an affixed flag from two types of zombies: Stumblers and Chasers. The former ambles menacingly, and the latter sprints; both types sport grotesque makeup and drip fake blood as they hunt racers, trying to tear the flags from their flag-football belts. At the untimed race’s finish line, participants dust themselves off before a post-race party, complete with beer, food, and live music. Proceeds from the race go toward supporting the North Texas Food Bank.

  • Cedar Hill Recreation Center
    The City of Cedar Hill Parks and Recreation Department is community centered. Every year, they organize the Cedar Hill 5K Green Run, which benefits the preservation of natural and open spaces. This year, the fun run traces a course through town that ends at the Village Green, where post-race entertainment gets going and awards are handed out. Proceeds from the event go to benefit the Dogwood Canyon Audubon Center for educational programming, which provides classes for kids where they learn about ecology through the lens of the canyon's eco-system and through the special learnin' goggles some children choose to wear.
