It's hard to get bored at Tread Fitness's group training classes. First, you're sprinting on a treadmill; next, it's some plyometric jumps; then, on to some dumbbell curls; and then maybe some core work. Trainers pack a lot into their one-hour workouts, such as interval classes like Tread54 and Tabata or full-body classes focusing on the treadmill and strength training. A heart-pumping rock and pop soundtrack blasts out further head-bopping motivation. DallasNews.com's Farah Fleurima reported that it was easy to find the beat in a 2010 review: "Once you're up to speed on programming the treadmill, you're on your way . . . If you're into pushing your body to its limits, you'll really love this place."
Dressed up with panels of blonde wood slats and lined with mirrors, Tread's studio is a little comfier-feeling than your standard fitness shoebox. Powerful wall-mounted fans mounted take aim at the rows of ultramodern treadmills, ensuring that sweaty never translates to slippery.
