Does recent holiday overindulgence have you starting to think about kick-starting your workout routine for the new year? Whether you’re regretting how all those extra slices of pie have your pants fitting a little more snugly or just want to get healthier, making a commitment to working out is always a great New Year’s Resolution.
It can be especially hard to stay motivated to getting fit during a pandemic when many gyms are either closed or don’t feel as safe as they used to. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of Dallas-based gyms and trainers that are offering virtual workouts. Check them out so that you can be the best version of you in 2021!
Best Free Virtual Workout
Dallas City Hall
Times are hard right now, with the pandemic taking a major toll on the economy. If you’re being budget-conscious, the good news is there are great free virtual workouts in Dallas! Get started with Dallas City Hall, who is presenting free virtual workout classes lead by local instructors. Check out the classes on Eventbrite.
Best Paid Virtual Workout
Of course, if you can afford to pay for workouts, you’ll be helping to stimulate the economy and supporting the livelihoods of fitness instructors and gym owners. Dallas Grit Fitness is a wonderful local business to support and they’re delivering valuable content. You can join their online portal monthly for $49 or yearly for $299. You’ll get access to the full library of previous classes, from Body Sculpt to Dance Cardio, and new daily classes on their Facebook Live.
Best Live Virtual Workout
The Yoga Movement
One of the things many people miss about in-person exercise classes is the feeling of community and accountability that they foster! One local organization offering live virtual classes is The Yoga Movement. This studio believes in making yoga accessible to all and they’re making that happen during the pandemic by bringing you live online classes.
Best Recorded Virtual Workout
One consistent throughout this pandemic has been that nothing is consistent. So, if you’re not sure you can commit to working out at specific days and times, you’ll want pre-recorded classes that you can do at any time. Get your fix at Uptown Yoga, a local studio with two Dallas locations that has now moved online. For just $30/month you’ll get access to their library of classes, which is growing daily. You can try it for seven days free.
Best Unique Virtual Workout
Hunger in the Wild
If you’re getting sick of crunches, push-ups, and jumping jacks, it’s probably time to switch up your workout routine. Mixing up your workout is really important to keep things fun and interesting, help you avoid burnout, and challenge your body in new ways. If you want to try something new and you’re feeling really intense, check out the online programs at Hunger in the Wild. They have courses like Olympic weightlifting and bodybuilding and they’ll pair you a remote coach to guide you.
