Love hitting your usual gym or getting your steps in at Trinity Park, but want to try something different?
Whether you’re new to the world of fitness or an exercise enthusiast, switching up your workouts can create a challenge and add some fun to your routine. To help you get started, we’ve rounded up four unique fitness options in Fort Worth to try out.

🐐 Goat yoga
Tarrant County Goat Yoga | Goat yoga events throughout Tarrant County
Down dogs, meet goats. Yoga is a great way to stay active and manage stress, and interacting with animals reduces cortisol (aka the stress hormone), so adding animals to a yoga class is the perfect way to take relaxation up a notch.
The next goat yoga class is happening Sat., Aug. 27 from 9-10 a.m. at Victory Forest Community Center (3427 Hemphill St.). Just bring a mat and get ready to meet your new yoga partners.
University of Hard Knocks | 7616 Camp Bowie West Blvd.
These lessons pack a punch. Boxing is a fun, high-intensity workout that can help improve heart health, boost whole body strength + more while working up a sweat.

Blue Feather offers beginner-friendly classes as well as more challenging classes for those ready to soar.
🕺 Nightclub-inspired workout
