Working out in The Woodlands can be done anywhere and almost any time. With so many gym and boutique fitness centers, outdoor parks and recreation activities, there’s something for every exerciser.

Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy Middle Lake Trail in W. Goodrich Jones State Forest in Magnolia. Though short, the trail is lovely and weaves through wooded areas where you might even spot the rare red cockaded woodpecker. Another great nature trail for walking or jogging is in Mercer Arboretum in Spring. Not to mention the plethora of hike and bike trails within The Woodlands communities, you might just need to walk out your front door to find a place to get some fresh air and stretch your legs.

For people who like working out in a gym, there’s 24Hour Fitness, Anytime Fitness, VillaSport, the YMCA, and Lifetime Fitness. All offer individual or family memberships, free weights, cardio equipment, swimming pools, and group exercise classes. Child care is available so your kids can play while you exercise. Look for discounts and other special New Year offers before you sign up.

If you like a gym feel just in a smaller setting with more personalized attention, try a boutique gym. Places like Koko Fit Club, Orangetheory Fitness, and Pure Barre each have unique approaches to total body fitness and offer small group or individual training. Breathe Pilates, Studio A, and Wicked Core are great pilates studios for people who want to focus on getting a strong core in a low impact workout. Yoga studios are also great for smaller classes with a personal touch and places such as Yoga Pod, YogaOne, and Brain & Body Yoga will give you a workout while also centering your mind and spirit.
