Helllllloooo January! The month where we all start fresh and set resolutions that fall by the wayside come summer, right? Maybe it’s just me, but setting New Year’s resolutions has always been difficult, especially those that are fitness related. But we’ve promised that this year WILL. BE. DIFFERENT. Right? So, join me in our #GetFit2020 goals and check out several of our favorite Downtown fitness hangouts.
BCycle & Bike Barn Bike Rentals
If group activities are your thing, biking is a perfect option. Hop on one of the many BCycle bikes Downtown and cruise down the bayou for a fun Saturday afternoon activity. If you’re looking for something more adventurous, Bike Barn Bike Rentals has a variety of mountain bikes to choose from, as well as tandem bikes (date activity?!)!
Buffalo Bayou Park
Buffalo Bayou hugs the north-west side of Downtown, and Buffalo Bayou park provides a LOT of different workout activities. The greenbelt consists of hike and bike trails, exercise stations, the Jim Mazola Memorial Disc Golf Course and canoeing and kayaking. It’s the perfect place for just about everything and everyone!
Fit Athletic Club
Fit Athletic Club is located on the 4th floor of The Shops at Houston Center. It’s Downtown’s version of the traditional gym, with state-of-the-art equipment, personal trainers and Group X fitness classes. The most convenient part? You can stop in before work, during lunch, or after work, plus they’re open on weekends.
Hop on the indoor cycling workout trend with RYDE – you’ll sweat, be motivated, and leave feeling ready for whatever life brings. We are obsessed with this studio and their instructors, who are possibly some of the most outgoing people we’ve ever met. They also have fully stocked locker rooms, filled with everything you need to get in and out during lunch time.
Tellepsen Family Downtown YMCA
If community is what you’re looking for, head to the YMCA. With hundreds of fitness classes, free childcare and family programs, and Downtown’s only lap pool – you will feel right at home at the (sing with us now) Y-M-C-A!
