Are you in the market for a new gym, or are you thinking about joining one for the first time? Consider checking out Gold’s Gym – right now, they are offering a free 7-day VIP membership at any of their locations. This membership gets you free access to their group exercise classes, full use of their equipment and more. Just find your closest gym, fill in your info, and go! If you don’t like the gym at the end of the week – or you just decide not to join – then you have no obligation to become a member.
I used to be a member of Gold’s Gym and I was always very happy with their facilities. They have a great assortment of group classes, including Spinning, yoga, step and more. Most of their locations also have childcare during certain hours.
In DFW, you can find Gold’s at 4400 Little Rd. and 2301 N. Collins in Arlington. There are also locations in Crowley, Dallas and Garland.
Are you a fan of Oprah? Then you probably know all about Bob Greene, Oprah’s personal trainer. Greene, who is the author of several best-selling books on fitness and health, will be at two DFW-area Kroger stores this weekend to sign copies of his newest book, “The Best Life Guide to Managing Diabetes and Pre-Diabetes,” as well as his other books.
While he’s there, he’ll also give helpful tips on diet, exercise, lifestyle and how to “live your best life.” Plus, audience members will also get to taste several dishes made from recipes in his cookbook, “The Best Life Diet Cookbook.”
Greene will be at the Kroger Marketplace in Frisco (12221 E. Custer Rd.) from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 27. On Sunday, Feb. 28, he’ll be at the Kroger on 5665 E. Mockingbird in Dallas from 4:30 to 6 p.m. To learn more about Greene, visit his website, www.thebestlife.com.
The folks at Aledo Yoga and Nia Studio recently changed the way they do business. They want to give everyone – regardless of budget – the chance to experience yoga. So now, every regular class that they offer is 100 percent donation-based. Students are asked to pay an amount that fits their economic situation. They suggest $15 per class, but if you can’t pay that much, that’s OK – just show up, contribute what you can, and have a good time.
In addition to yoga, Aledo Yoga and Nia Studio offers Nia, a freeform dance-type class. See the class schedule here.
