Better Than the Gym: Unique Ways to Workout in Round Rock
Group Fitness, CrossFit, and HIIT
The cutest husband and wife team, Douglas and Sharon (or “Shuggie”) started this boot camp-meets-cross fit boutique gym one year ago and have been going strong ever since (pun intended). I tried their group fitness class which incorporates a warm-up with a bit of cardio, stretching, weights, and more. I loved their focus on form and emphasis on quality over quantity. They took away all my apprehension over trying cross fit for the first time, made me feel very comfortable and confident. Free trial class available. 17251 Great Oaks Dr, Round Rock.
Another adorable husband and wife duo, Nick and Tracy, started their fitness center with the main goal of creating a community and making you feel like you’re part of the family. I tried the Butts & Gutts Friday morning class and the kickboxing class (both taught by Tracey). Her energy is powerful and motivating, without being overwhelming. The music is pumping and everyone there is incredibly friendly and welcoming. Both classes had me feeling the burn! What they do for kids and families in the community is amazing too (check out their Girls’ Em-pow-her-ment classes). What a true local gem! Free trial class available! 3805 Stonebridge Dr Unit 3, Round Rock.
HOTWORX is a virtually instructed exercise program created for users to experience the many benefits of infrared heat absorption, while completing a 30-minute Isometric workout or 15-minute High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) session.
