Strong Fitness Dallas

August 15, 2017

As a Dallas Fitness Ambassador, I get to visit fitness studios throughout Dallas and try a variety of workouts. We get together with everyone for a sweaty class. Often, we host community classes that you do not want to miss.Β Recently, I visited Strong Fitness with some of the other ambassadors and had a killer workout.

The facility

Strong Fitness offers a variety of classes that use different equipment. There are two different areas, the crossfit garage and the hybrid fitness room. I didn’t get to see much of the cross fit area, but loved the variety in the fitness room. They have TRX bands, Trueform treadmills, spin bikes and more. The facility is huge, so you aren’t crammed in group classes.

The workout

We took the hybrid fitness class, which consisted of a warm-up, cool down, and 4 cardio/strength intervals, each 8 minutes. Every person is hooked up with a heart monitor to be able to track your workout.

During the warm up, we separated into two groups. One group warmed up on the Trueforms, or self-propelled treadmills, and the other warmed up on the floor with pushups.

Once we completed both sections, we were ready to start the workout. I started out with the group on the floor, while the other group went to the spin bikes. The floor group had to complete as many intervals as possible in the 8 minutes of strength exercises using dumbbells and body weight. After that, my group moved to the spin bikes and completed an 8 minute interval on the bikes.

The next two intervals involved the TRX bands and Trueforms. This was my first time using the TRX bands. They work wonders. Believe me, I felt the burn for days afterwards. My group ended on Trueforms with an 8 minute interval similar to the bikes.

After our workout, we cooled down with some stretches to get our heart rate down.

Final thoughts

Strong Fitness is a great place for people looking for variety in their workouts. Although we worked hard, got our heart rate up, and felt the burn, we had fun. Coach Lizzie and the other instructors do a Β great job of creating a challenging workout that doesn’t feel brutal. I highly recommend you check out one of their two locations.

Huge shoutout to Substance Juice for providing post class mimosas and juice. If you haven’t checked out their fresh pressed juices, you should go and try one of their delicious flavors.

PIN for later

    I have a friend who recently moved to Dallas. I’ll have to share this post with her. She has been looking for a gym to join since she is new to the area!

    definitely a great place for workout. i loved the variety as well…i enjoyed the TRX band a lot.

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 8:50 pm

      It was brutal but so fun! The TRX bands gave me a crazy burn.

  • Ayanna @ 21FlavorsofSplendor August 15, 2017 at 1:43 pm

    This looks so cool and like such a great workout! I love TRX and would totally try this if I was in Dallas.

    What a cute workout spot!! I haven’t been to a gym in a LONG time, but that would be pretty tempting!

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 8:51 pm

      It’s gigantic. I wish I would have gotten photos of the crossfit garage.

  • Mary August 16, 2017 at 8:17 am

    Looks like a great place to workout. I will be passing this along to my friends who live local.

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 8:51 pm

      Thank you so much, Mary.

  • Kathy Brown August 16, 2017 at 9:34 am

    I really wish I had a place like this near me in Chattanooga. It looks amazing. For now I guess I’ll just have to stick with planet fitness.

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 8:52 pm

      Anything is better than nothing for sure. But, yes, this place is fantastic. Such great variety.

  • Pam August 16, 2017 at 3:47 pm

    Looks like you had a great workout and fun with the others! I wish there was something like this near me!

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 8:52 pm

      Thank you so much, Pam!

  • Beth August 16, 2017 at 6:18 pm

    Great pictures. Looks like an awesome place to workout!

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 8:57 pm

      Thank you so much, Beth!

  • Rachel Ritlop August 16, 2017 at 8:43 pm

    Oh wow looks like an awesome facility! I need to find myself a gym buddy and try out some of these cool places!

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 8:58 pm

      It really is. It’s fantastic. Workout buddies make it better.

  • Adriana Lopez August 17, 2017 at 12:08 am

    That’s an amazing gym I wish I had one like that in m area. Having a well equipped and clean gym is important to do better workouts and be inspired to go =)

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 8:58 pm

      It really is! Thank you, Adriana.

  • Beth August 17, 2017 at 8:25 am

      It really is so fun!

  • Lecy | A Simpler Grace August 17, 2017 at 6:31 pm

    What a neat place! Those treadmills were so modern looking. πŸ™‚

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 8:59 pm

      They are! Gives you a great workout too.

  • Stephanie August 17, 2017 at 7:50 pm

    This sounds like a great gym! If I lived in the Dallas area I would definitely have to check it out. I do most of my workout at home right now since I have two small kids and it isn’t always easy to get out and the gym daycare is usually so expensive.

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 9:00 pm

      I totally understand. Home workouts are great. I have several listed on my site that I love.

  • Jill Conyers August 17, 2017 at 7:54 pm

    I love gyms. Is that weird. When we travel I like to try out local gyms. I know I would love this one.

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 9:00 pm

      I don’t think it’s weird. I love being able to check out all of the ones Dallas has to offer.

  • ShootingStarsMag August 17, 2017 at 8:54 pm

    Sounds like a great workout! That’s awesome you’re able to try different gyms/fitness centers in Dallas.

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 9:03 pm

      It’s a great group to be a part of!

  • David Elliott August 18, 2017 at 9:20 am

    I think the key to success in working out is the ability to have fun with it all. I would have a hard time if I couldn’t enjoy myself. And it’s so important to wind down after as well. It looks like they are a great facility.

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 9:05 pm

      I completely agree with you, David. They have a great facility and great variety.

  • Glenda August 18, 2017 at 9:54 pm

    Now, this looks like a work out I would get bored of! Strong Fitness Dallas looks like a great place to work out for sure!

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 9:06 pm

      It is so fun! They have such great variety.

  • Erica @ Coming up Roses August 18, 2017 at 10:26 pm

    This sounds like a GREAT workout! Would totally check something like this out if they had it in my area!

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 9:10 pm

      Yes! It really was wonderful.

  • Brittany August 19, 2017 at 1:50 pm

    I don’t live in the Dallas area but this looks a lot like a gym that I’ve been wanting to try out here. I LOVE groupclasses that have variety like this. I feel like they keep me the most motivated and give me the best results.

    Oh and I’ve never seen those true form treadmills before! They look amazing!

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 9:12 pm

      They are really cool. A little difficult to get used to, but so fun!

  • Kim August 19, 2017 at 4:37 pm

    Ahh this gym looks amazing! I wish they had one of these near my house!!

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 9:13 pm

      It’s so fun!

  • Debbie Savage August 20, 2017 at 4:32 pm

    Okay, where was my invite? LOL! This experience is so incredible! I would love to be in this gym – I can feel the energy through the pictures!

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 9:14 pm

      Awh. Thank you, Debbie. It’s a fantastic gym for sure. Next time. πŸ˜‰

  • AnnMarie John August 20, 2017 at 9:30 pm

    That looks like an awesome place to workout! I love that they have a lot of equipment and the place makes you feel comfortable, not like most gyms. This is definitely a place I’d work out at.

    • Jessica August 22, 2017 at 9:14 pm

      They do a great job of that for sure!
