'Tis the season to set some sweaty resolutions. But if Christmas broke your bank, you might be sweating more over the cost of long-term gym memberships.
Don't throw in the towel so soon. There are tons of hot new classes and beginner pricing specials in Dallas, Fort Worth and the surrounding areas to get you back on track for 2016.
The Sanctuary Yoga Room in Fort Worth
They say it takes 21 days to make a good habit stick, so The Sanctuary Yoga Room in Fort Worth is offering new clients a 21-day package for $21. These classes typically start at $17 for a single class pass. How's that for a good deal? The 21 days start on the first day you activate your pass in 2016.
Spin studio Zyn22 in Dallas and Fort Worth
Another fan of 21-day habit starters is Zyn22, the hot new spinning studios in Dallas and Fort Worth that make riding a stationary bike feel more like a dance party. Commit to 21 days of spinning, and the Zynster tribe is confident you'll want to come back on day 22. They're so confident, in fact, that the company is launching a "passport challenge" where exercisers are encouraged to ride with each instructor twice in January and February. Those who do so will be invited to a VIP celebratory ride at the end of February.
The Dallas Yoga Center
The Dallas Yoga Center (DYC) has incredible variety in yoga classes. Sample quite a few of those during the DYC 30-Day Yoga Challenge. Challenges start on January 16, April 2, July 9 and October 22. Participants who complete the challenge will be entered to win a drawing for $100 in gift certificates to DYC. Register at the center to get started.
