Mai Lyn Ngo founded Fitness Ambassadors so Dallasites could have a resource for fitness related-news, upcoming health-related events, studio openings, and other fun local happenings.
This mission has become extra important during the pandemic, as people have sought out community while trying to stay in shape, and Fitness Ambassadors hasn't let coronavirus slow it down one bit.
Below are some upcoming Fitness Ambassador events, all of which combine a good time with a great workout. Mark your calendar, and get ready to sweat (safely).
Pilates and Palomas at Virgin Hotels Dallas
October 17 at 10:30 am
Join TruFusion for a nonstop, high-energy class that helps build strength, endurance, and flexibility. Expect a lot of core-building Pilates movements, high-intensity interval training with bodyweight movements, and strength training with dumbbells and resistance bands (all of which will be sanitized and provided by TruFusion). After class, cool down with a complimentary Paloma cocktail.
I Am Lifted Boot Camp
October 17 at 12 pm, October 18 at 10 am
All fitness levels are welcome at this two-day event, which will have mats for rent if you can't bring your own. Social distancing guidelines will also be followed, with plenty of cleaning supplies on hand. The boot camp takes place at Alta Trinity Green (990 Singleton Blvd.) on Saturday and 136 Glass St. on Sunday.
Transform Through Breath with Breathe Meditation & Wellness
October 18 at 3:30 pm
This 90-minute workshop is all about learning how to properly breathe — and how that will transform your life. Begin with an understanding of our breathing and the components of a complete and proper breath. A good portion of the workshop will be spent practicing this specific type of breathing and observing for improvement. From this new place of clarity, activate your own transformational desires through a special sound bath meditation, curated with new instruments and elements to breathe new life and harmony into your life.
Torch and Tacos at Omni Dallas
October 18 and 25 at 11 am
Gather on the Pegasus Lawn at the Omni Dallas in your own private 8-by-8-foot sweat space (each spaced six feet apart, of course) for a 50-minute BYOM (bring your own mat) class. October 18 is agility and endurance training with 3VOLT Fitness, while October 25 is box and shred with JC and Ariana. Afterward, chow down on two breakfast tacos during a patio social at The Owners Box — you can even stay to watch some Sunday football.

October 24 at 7:30 am
Produced by The Don't Quit Foundation, a 501(c)3 dedicated to giving back to the mental health community and benefitting NAMI North Texas, this run is all about raising funds and awareness for mental health.
