How to Work Out for Free with the Best Fitness Studios in Dallas

Posted by Craig Premo on May 31, 2016 12:24:17 PM

Whittling the waistline can also trim the wallet. For more than a year, North Texans found a way around ever-increasing gym prices with a popular fitness app. For a monthly fee, they enjoyed an unlimited number of classes at trendy fitness studios, as well as gym time. But starting this week, the cost is going up.

Not ready to pay the price? You may not have to. Big D offers a surprising number of free exercise classes, hosted by some of the city’s best known studios.

So, for everyone out there looking to hold on to a few extra bucks, we’ve compiled a list of free workout classes hosted in the heart of Dallas. They can change without notice, of course, so be sure to check the organizer’s site before showing up.

Sunday

Yoga with Exhale Dallas at Klyde Warren Park

Long week? Strike a pigeon post, and chill out at Klyde Warren Park. Yoga with Exhale Dallas is hosted from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Sundays. No prior experience needed – just bring water, a towel, and perhaps a friend. There are plenty of nearby spots for brunch afterward.

Monday

Zyn22 at The Shops at Park Lane

Good morning, sunshine! It’s the first day of the work week, and you’re off to the races. Keep up with a high intensity, heart-racing, hip-shaking indoor cycle class. Zyn22’s instructors ride to the music, with choreographed movements designed to work your arms, legs, glutes and core. The first class is free. After that, package prices vary with number of classes purchased.

Flywheel Sports – Highland Park

At this indoor cycling studio, riders compete against each other for the highest score on the leaderboard, posted at the center of the room. Not quite ready for that? No problem, you can ride incognito. The first class is free, and like similar studios, package prices vary by class quantity.

Tuesday

Pilates in the Park with Pilates Methodology at Klyde Warren Park

Congratulations – you survived the start of the work week. Now gear up to push through the challenges ahead, both mentally and physically. Pilates Methodology hosts this class from 6 – 7 p.m. at the Muse Family Performance Pavilion at Klyde Warren Park.  Pilates builds stamina and strength, while also improving posture. Shoulders back, head held high! Your mom was right - you can overcome anything.

The Ride House – Dallas, Lovers & The Tollway
