August Fitness Challenges Across the Dallas- Fort Worth Metroplex

I think challenges are a great way to encourage participants to be accountable for their goals and still have fun in the process. Sometimes, a challenge can give you the extra “umph” you need to kick your ass into high gear towards the end of the month. I mean, who wants to put in all that work and miss out on your “prize” because you got lazy towards the end? Nobody! So here are 3 Dallas-based fitness studios that are challenging you to be great.  Not only will your body thank you, so will your wallet.

Grit Fitness Studios

Grit studios is known for offering exclusive tanks and shirts that you absolutely can not rock unless you earn it but, this month, they are trying something new and we at FitXBrit really like it!

The August Challenge started on the 1st of the month but they are switching it up a bit because at GRIT they are always changing and improving. Instead of a tank top, you can earn a limited edition GRIT water bottle! All you have to do is:

Take 14 classes at either studio +

Drink 8 glass of water every day for 31 days

You can print off the water challenge sheet or pick one up at the studio to track your water intake starting Monday, August 1! Who's excited? #chuglife #dontbethirsty

City Surf Fitness

Everyone who follows me via social media knows that my studio of choice for July was City Surf Fitness. I alternated between the Uptown location and Deep Ellum and the Deep Ellum location definitely won my heart, more on that later though.

Fly Wheel Sports

I have not yet made it to take a spin class here or anywhere for that matter. If I am being honest I am super nervous because I keep hearing that it is painful for your lady parts but, I am going to conquer my fear before the year is over.  I put it in writing and I have no plans on failing myself!  I hear Fly Wheel Sports would be the best place for me to start and I am excited to try the whole cycling phenomenon out soon. For August here is what Fly Wheel has to offer:
