Staying Fit in McKinney
We all know staying fit and healthy in our lives is important but time after time our hectic lifestyles, and an abundance of unhealthy food, can cause us to stray. Good news is that there are more options than ever in and around McKinney to get us back into shape, Including our High Tech Fitness Studio located on site.
For those who like basic, no frills fitness, McKinney has two fully equipped recreation centers to choose from. Old Settler’s is near downtown and McKinney Community Center is just off of US-75 and Eldorado. Each has a great combination of free weights, machines, and resistance equipment and both offer individual training sessions to help no matter your fitness level.
If you are into more of a spiritual balancing of the mind, body, and soul, check out Sunstone Yoga at Eldorado Crossing. They fully embrace the idea and importance of steady aerobic and high intensity training. So much so that they have created an entire series of classes that not only keep the body fit, but the mind engaged as well. Don’t be scared away by the hot yoga as there are few things more relaxing than a savasana after a sweaty 90+ degree session.
Others search for the most complete fitness program available to maximize their time. If this is you, consider Sigma Crossfit. Crossfit incorporates elements from high intensity interval training, olympic weightlifting, plyometrics, gymnastics, and strongman exercises to create programming that can be used for everything from weight loss to strength gain, all while focusing on overall fitness. Crossfit often describes itself as constantly varied functional movements executed at high intensity, across broad time and modal domains. If you have never tried a class or seen it done on TV, drop in and see what they’re all about.
If combat sports are more your speed, one of the most recognizable MMA gyms in the Metroplex is right in the heart of McKinney. Tier 1 Training facility is run by Alan Shebaro who has won several international tournaments in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He is a former Special Forces Soldier who also has a background in Olympic weightlifting. The gym offers not only Jiu Jitsu but also Muay Thai Kickboxing classes and MMA Conditioning. What better option if you want to not only stay fit but become proficient at a martial art at the same time?
As McKinney continues to grow, the options and possibilities are endless and as you can see, there is already something for everyone who is looking to stay fit and healthy.
