I go to Blue Anjou Yoga Studio in Lewisville, they have classes for all levels and their instructors are great. I am also going to be trying the Yoga Hut in Denton soon.

I've heard good things about them. I know a couple coworkers are really liking the new Title Boxing as well.

I got to the Denton Natitorium at the water park. MWF they have a strength training/plitates class at 9 AM and at 10:15 a water aerobics class. It is mostly old retired broads like me but it is fun!

Right now I'm super excited because TWU's new Fitness & Rec center will be opening this summer. It's going to be *fab*! :D

I go to a class at Crownover MS (corinth) called Body Blast through the Corinth Rec. I love it! If you live nearby you need to try it.

I've been taking body pump at North Lakes Rec center for 4 weeks now. They also have bodycombat which is like kick boxing, and bodyflow which is like yoga. I love it! It's $36 a month for the classes. You can try any of the denton rec centers for free for a week with this coupon. http://www.cityofdenton.com/index.aspx?page=1216

I know my boss has done some biking in the Ray Roberts area, I believe, and on the Green Belt, but I'm afraid I'm not familiar with either myself. I tend to do most of my working out indoors.

hmm... i don't know of any unpaved areas. You could try http://www.discoverdenton.com. they may have some more information on trails.

I do however know of the running paths at southlake park by Teasley Ln. this track gives you many options to run/walk/bike around a park, 2 ponds, and some tennis courts. This path also has 1/8th mile markers which help if you're aiming for a certain goal and don't have any other means of keeping track of your distance.

I go there relatively often because it's close to my house. Does anyone else know of a place?

Hi all,

Im new to Denton and still wanting to explore more places to work out. I currently go to Denia rec center but Id like to find some interesting trails to jog on (preferably unpaved and in or around some nature-trees etc.) Ive heard of Ray Roberts but havent checked it out yet. Can anyone say anything about that? Not really sure what it is- park? trail? Id love to get together to play volleyball, basketball, soccer, ultimate frisbee, bike, whatever.

I use the Pohl Recreation Center on the UNT campus since my tuition payments include a membership.

However i'm interested in the park off Teasly Ln. Theres a big running path and I think there are some sand volleyball pits. North Lakes has batting cages, Golf driving range, Tennis/outdoor basketball courts and some softball/baseball fields. Also on McCormick st there's an outdoor hockey rink somewhere i gotta find again. the indoor one on mayhill is nice, i used to play there, but i want to find the free public rink to save some cash.

Anybody interested in playing some softball/baseball or Volleyball this summer? I'd like to get some regular games on the weekends or something during the summer months.

Anybody else have a favorite gym or other exercise spot that they just adore?

When the weather is nice, I know I love just walking around the TWU campus for twenty or thirty minutes for some exercise. It's pretty and has plenty of shade :)

There's also the public pool at Quaker Park. I haven't used it, but it's just a regular ol' outdoor pool, so I'm sure the water is plenty warm in the summer ;)

I think it is $80 for a year. I know it was $45 for six months. You can also do 6 month and daily but I do not know the price. It is the waterworks park on loop 288 and fm 428. They have 2 pools and the shallow one is heated and the lap pools are not. It is a little chilly in the winter. Yes it is the same one the Denton schools swim teams use. They open at 5:30 am and have different closing hours daily but most of the time I think it is 8 pm. You can check it all out at the waterworks website.

Can you give us more info on where you swim? How much does it cost? What are their hours? And the all-time big question----is the pool heated or is the water cold??? Where exactly is the indoor pool located?

I've seen some notices listed in the Denton publications for the Natatorium, but I've never gone there. Is this the same place you're talking about? The indoor pool that the school system uses for their PE classes? Thanks for your help!

I do know that North Lakes has trainers. It does cost extra. But you can sign up for how ever many sessions then do the workout they show you by yourself. I believe there are some other workout classes that come with your membership. if you check the parks and rec guide they have most of the info in there. That and I believe Denia has a workout area also.

Yes they do have the one day passes. And you can pay monthly also. It is a lot cheaper to do the year though. Oh sorry I am Chrissie I just signed up. I have a North Lakes membership and also work up there from time to time.

I swim laps at the Waterworks indoor pool. It is great! They open at 5:30 am and it is usually not crowded if I manage to get there on time.

I'm a NorthLakes girl. $120 for the entire year or $40 for 3 months. Not a bad deal! The staff is really down to earth and the people are generally nice. Lots of older people and guys. Oh, and there's a class called Body Pump - not sure what it's about but people leave them soaked!! It's pretty awesome!

I joined Jazzercise of Denton last month...
the registration fee is steep, but after that it's $33 per month for unlimited classes. They have classes starting at 5:30 a.m. during the week until 6:30 p.m. & even some Saturday morning classes.
They have child care & a monitor in the jazzercise room where you can keep an eye on your kiddos.
I love music & the teachers take a personal interest. I have 3 herniated disks & they have taught me low impact alternatives to the moves that would hurt me.

Change is a long, slow turn...

I just joined a five week boot camp out on New Hope Rd off 380. I am scared to death and would welcome anyone who is willing to trudge along with me. For newbies like me it is $229 for the five weeks...yes it is @5am.

Exercise Boot Camp with Angie is Awesome! They get together 3 days a week at 5:15 a.m. at UNT Fouts Field and work your butt off. If you are interested on doing something like this, the next 5 week course begins in January. There is currently a mini bootcamp going on right now for 3 weeks for $75.00.

North Lake is either $15 a month or $100 year for residents. They have started some awesome classes though called Body Jam and they are additional $36 a month or $5 a class. I have taken the first Body Jam they had and really enjoyed it. They are in the process of starting 2 more by the end of the year and you pay $36 a month and go to any of the classes. I hope this helps

Did North Lakes go up? I thought it was $100 for Denton residents and $150 for non residents for the year? They use to offer $3 day passes to visit the facility and see if you like it. You can also get shorter memberships than a year. One of these days I'm going to get myself up there.

This is the place to tell others about great fitness classes, new gyms, great places for healthy snacks, etc.

Personally I'm a member at the Texas Woman's University Fitness and Rec center, but I have yet to get off my lazy butt and get over there to work out. Anyone else know any good places for a workout?
