Four Fitness Trends to Ignite the New Year 3

How Joining a Unique Fitness Family can jumpstart your fitness resolutions

It’s January and like every year, you write down your resolution to get fit. But how many years have gone by, yet you haven’t kept this resolution? Perhaps your answer lies in trying a specialized fitness trend. 

Two gyms, a bike shop, and one dance studio are working hard to help Tulsans get fit and healthy. They provide group classes to help you get in shape or if in shape, reach a new fitness apex.


Want to channel your inner Rocky? TITLE Boxing Club is a fast-growing franchise gym focused on group fitness and catering to all levels with the authentic experience of being trained like a fighter. 

Trainers come from different backgrounds and fight styles such as Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing, and Boxing. They love to dabble into different fighting genres to perfect their craft, keeping classes interesting and members guessing—you’ll never step into the same class twice. The classes not only provide variety and fun, but serious caloric burn (reaching up to 1,000 calories in a workout)! 

In addition to group classes, they provide one-on-one sessions with their trainers for members wanting to perfect their craft. 

Their Mission:

Be the best hour of someone’s day. TITLE is a big, sweaty family and they work hard to ensure members feel part of their family when they enter the front doors. As family, their focus is beyond just fitness; they’re passionate about health and nutrition. TITLE has recently partnered with Natural Grocers—they will come to the gym and provide a monthly demo on how to eat healthy and properly fuel.

From the Beginning:

In 2008, retired boxer Danny Campbell founded the company, and now, TITLE has expanded to over 160 franchise locations and still growing! Located on the corner of 81st and Harvard, they’re the only TITLE Boxing Club in Tulsa.

Barre3 is for everyone!

Barre3 is an exercise studio offering 60-minute classes, blending yoga and Pilates with ballet barre work. Barre3 doesn’t believe in an one-size-fits-all approach to exercise. Instead, their team empowers each individual to modify postures and develop body awareness for lasting results. Their signature approach to teaching gives clients a rewarding endorphin high and a deep muscle burn—without pain in areas of the body prone to injury. 

About the owners of Barre3 Tulsa: 

When Brenda Oakes first discovered Barre3 as an online subscriber in 2013, she was in a self-proclaimed slump. She had two beautiful little girls watching her every move and was consumed with self-doubt and low self-esteem. She knew she needed to make a change – not only for herself, but for them. 

Barre3 changed everything– her body, her strength, and her confidence! Today, Brenda and her husband, Kris, have a strong desire to continue to serve and strengthen others through their gym, Barre3 Tulsa. 

Community Emphasis

Barre3 is more than a workout. Many clients find a community beyond the studio walls. They share in each other’s success, help one another, swap delicious recipes from B3 Online and more. The B3 team believes when we do the significant life events together- from raising kids or losing weight- life is richer. Their mission is to make the world a healthier and happier place, together

January Special:

This January, Barre3 is kicking off their month-long journey together called “B3 All In” with the goal of starting 2018 as healthy and balanced as can be. Everyone is welcome to join with unlimited classes and unlimited play lounge passes for the kiddos for $99 for the first month.

Lets Go Biking!

Thinking of getting off road this winter on a mountain bike and changing your boring exercise routine? Don’t let the bumpy roads and knobby tires scare you. Mountain Biking for the beginner can be a magical and fun experience. When cold temperatures move in and the wind kicks up, you’ll find an abundance of riders, both beginner and experienced, enjoying miles of Oklahoma trails.  

So, grab your old bike or rent one of Phat Tires premium mountain bikes and take a trip to the trails.

Unsure where to ride?

Tulsa Metro area has 80 miles of bicycle and pedestrian trails for every skill level. Check out for the latest Tulsa Area Trail guide or join Phat Bike at their weekly Thursday night ride at Turkey Mountain. They’ll help you navigate the beginner trails. 

Unsure what to ride? 

The staff at Phat Tire will help you find the appropriate bike. Mountain bikes offer many different types and styles depending on the overall goal of the bike and rider. Amy at Phat Tire likes to ask, “What do you see yourself doing on the bike? Where do you see yourself riding? How often do you see yourself riding? And what do you want to accomplish when purchasing your first off-road bike?”

The best tip is to purchase a bike based on where the majority of the riding will occur—from scenic roads, gravel rides, paved greenways, and technical single-track. And Phat Tire will make sure you’re on the best bike and ideal trail for you

Unsure you’re ready to purchase?

Try renting. Phat Tire has a large assortment of styles and sizes to suit almost any rider. They’ll help outfit you with a helmet, lights and lock. And Phat Tire will apply all rental fees towards the purchase of a new bike!

Ballroom Dancing’s Popularity as a Sport

While shows like Dancing with the Stars have put ballroom dancing in a glamorous spotlight, a whole spectrum of ballroom dancers are enjoying the health benefits ballroom dancing provides. If you’re looking for a highly challenging and gratifying sport offering spectacular world travel, competitive ballroom dancing is for you.

Most people, however, take the relaxed approach—they want to learn enough to feel confident, look good on the dance floor, and focus on the fun, social aspects of ballroom dancing. No matter where you choose to be on the dancer spectrum, Ballroom dancing has remained popular over the decades because at its core, it’s a fun, active way to connect with people – or one special person. And it’s repeatedly proven to improve mental and physical well-being and agility, while not feeling like exercise or therapy, but producing the same sense of satisfaction. 

Strictly Ballroom’s Dance Studio

At Strictly Ballroom, the principal instructors and new owners have taught ballroom dancing professionally for over 45 years and 20 years, respectfully. Their passion to share the joy of ballroom dancing is at the heart of the business.

They take pride in serving as a social ballroom dance studio, providing private ballroom dance lessons to dancers of all levels and interests – from beginners to seasoned competitors – and throwing fun weekly parties every Friday night from 8:00 pm to 10:30 pm. Entry to parties is $15 per person or $25 per couple and includes over two hours of music and dancing, and complimentary appetizers, sweets and drinks (including wine and champagne for those 21 and over).

New students are invited to take advantage of their New Year, New You January Special, giving you three half-hour private lessons and entry for two to a Friday night party for only $50 (a $130 value)! Group classes are starting soon.
