2018 was big for Pilates and Versaclimbers.
We’ve all wondered, at one point or another, whether the boutique fitness bubble is on the verge of bursting in Dallas. Based on this past year, we’ll have to keep wondering. Our city’s Pilates scene got a major boost, while Versaclimbers became everyone’s favorite quickie workout. The bubble definitely hasn’t burst — if anything, Dallas’ competitive market has helped the best in the industry rise to the top, and brought more workout diversity to the fitness scene.
Female-focused boxing and some sort of mega-boutique studio (an oxymoron if we ever heard one) are set to open next year, but for now, let’s reflect on the studios we were gifted in 2018.
It’s hard to remember a time when our city didn’t have a Versaclimber studio option. Dallas-based District Climb was the first to arrive in West Village, and helped us ease into the concept of working out with the towering piece of equipment.
