5 Nontraditional Workout Spots in Dallas

Whether you workout everyday, made a New Year’s resolution to start working out more often, or simply just hate the gym scene, it is easy for the gym to get old, boring or simply dreadful after seeing that one cute guy for the fifth time as you’re dying on the treadmill.

For those days you can’t fathom swiping into Dedman or your local gym, there are endless fitness options scattered across Dallas where you can focus on your workout and not the fear of running into someone you know.
