From chatting over coffee to attending concerts, every moment in life is more enjoyable with your best friend in tow. For many, this also includes working out. Even the toughest workouts are more bearable (and even fun!) when your BFF is breaking a sweat right there with you. Attending a fitness class together provides the perfect opportunity to bond while also burning calories.

Next time you and your bestie are making a trip to Corpus Christi, here’s a list of the best fitness classes the two of you need to try:



1. Yoga Studio of Corpus Christi


Conveniently located in Central Corpus Christi, this yoga studio has a welcoming atmosphere with class offerings all day long to accommodate busy schedules. Beginner? No problem; there’s a class for that. Vinyasa obsessed? Check out Vinyasa Flow. There are classes catered to all. Perhaps the best part? You can pop  over to Hester’s Cafe so you and your bestie can indulge in a delicious post-yoga refuel!


2. Water Dog Floating Yoga


If in-studio yoga classes aren’t extreme enough for you, try getting into a warrior pose on a paddleboard! Situated on a houseboat in the downtown Corpus Christi Marina, Water Dog is the world’s first floating yoga and fitness studio. Water Dog offers yoga and fitness classes on the upper deck, as well as Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) yoga, SUP Pilates and SUP Fit classes right on the water. Grab your best friend and unwind with a calming sunset yoga session or start your day with an energizing sunrise class.


3. RowZone


Thanks to RowZone, you and your bestie don’t need to join a professional rowing team to participate in this amazing workout. Corpus Christi’s first indoor rowing studio was created by top rowers to teach the proper rowing motion to make you feel it all over. Take a break from your usual run and give this high-energy workout a spin (or more like a pull).


4. Aransas Pass Aquatic Center



With temperatures sometimes reaching triple digits in Corpus Christi, the idea of exercising—and voluntarily sweating more than you need to—can be difficult to fathom. So why not choose a workout that will leave you and your BFF feeling ready to conquer the beach, but also refreshed? Aransas Pass Aquatic Center offers several water-based workout classes that are easy on your joints, yet challenging enough to help you reach new levels of fitness.


5. The Barre Fitness Studio



Located off S Alameda St, The Barre Fitness Studio will give you all the leg shakes. The Barre makes our list because it’s challenging, fun, and the music selection is always on-point. They also offer private and small group fitness sessions, focusing on individual needs rather than cookie cutter choreography. Be prepared for total body toning and soreness the following morning.



The only thing left to do is try ’em all, right? And don’t forget to let us know which are your favs! See what other health & wellness activities and events Corpus Christi has to offer here.
