Work It: Best Fitness Spots in Austin

Work It- TRIBEZA Austin Magazine

An insider’s guide to Austin’s hidden gems

What’s January without a little bit of fitness inspiration? Here the TRIBEZA staff shares where they go to break a sweat.

RIDE Indoor Cycling: “I love my 7 am spin classes. The sweating, the dancing, the community — it’s the perfect start to my day.”

Katie Friel, Editor

Pure Austin: “Jerry’s 8 am yoga is invigorating and unique. I call it ‘sensation yoga’ because Jerry always finds a way to make sure you have a sense of having done something good for your body at the end.”

George Elliman, Publisher + Principal

“I love going to Body Pump and Pure Cycling — they’re both different workouts, but I always leave Pure Austin feeling invigorated.”

Lexi Ross, Account Executive

Kor180: “Maja’s 30/30 class is my favorite workout in Austin. Between the cycling, Pilates and Maja’s never-ending motivation, I leave the class feeling like I can take on anything. (And also very sore.)”

Ashley Horsley, Art Director

Lady Bird Lake Hike & Bike Trail: “I like to start my run on the east side near Pleasant Valley and Cesar Chavez. You’re surrounded by water on both sides and there’s a canopy of trees above you — it feels like a total escape.”

Sofia Sokolove, Assistant Editor

Austin Bouldering Project: “I’ve rock climbed, lifted weights, done a little yoga and sat in their sauna all before 10 am!”

Derek Van Wagner, Sales + Operations Manager
