Lifting weights or endlessly pedaling to nowhere on a spin bike can get pretty boring, but skipping the gym shouldn’t mean that you have to skip getting some exercise. Here are some great ways in Dripping Springs to stay fit and stay out of the gym.
People around the world have been using martial arts to stay fit for thousands of years, and with a wide range of styles, both young and old can benefit from participating in the sport.
Meta Martial Arts is a local dojo that specializes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Bang Muay Thai programs. While there are certainly students who train for competition, most participants simply want to stay in shape. With programs aimed at adults and children as young as four years old, this family-run martial arts program is a perfect place for anybody who’s ever been curious about the sport.
Not only is “Zumba” a fun word to say, but it’s an incredibly fun way to stay in shape. The fitness program that utilizes Latin-inspired dance for a cardio-heavy workout skyrocketed in popularity in the early 2000s and is still going strong today.
Dripping Springs’ local YMCA branch offers 60-minute classes for adults on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6 PM. A Y membership is required for the class, but with that membership, you also have access to the Y’s other classes, swimming pool, tennis and basketball courts, and yes, even the gym.
If high-intensity martial arts or Zumba isn’t your thing, and you prefer a calmer workout, then a yoga glass might be the perfect fit. Sersana Yoga is a local studio dedicated to helping participants cultivate a healthier body, mind, and spirit. A range of classes for all skill levels are available seven days a week, and there’s even a tea bar for some post-workout refreshments.
The City of Dripping Springs Parks and Rec Department offers adult softball leagues for both men and women who are looking for some old-school competitive fun. The women’s league has already wrapped up for the 2023 season, but the men’s league hasn’t kicked off yet and will run from June 13 – August 8. Games are once a week, with each team playing two games per nig, and a break during the week of July 4. If you’re looking to dust off your old baseball glove (or break in a new one), this is the perfect opportunity.
The Texas Hill Country is home to some fantastic rock climbing locations. If you’re new to the sport or simply feel like you could use a bit of guidance, then it’s definitely advised that you enlist the help of a pro. The guides at Texas Climbing Adventures are all highly experienced climbers who love nothing more than spending a day on the rock and showing new climbers the ropes.
Run or Bike
Going for a jog or hopping on a bike that isn’t stationary are both excellent ways to get in some cardio. There are 25 different bike routes within Dripping Springs that cyclists can utilize and dozens more within the greater Austin area.
Even within the Caliterra, there is an extensive trail system that can be used by avid runners and bikers looking to get in some exercise. It’s amenities such as this that make this master-planned community such an appealing place to call home.
