Dear Gents,

January marks the beginning of not only a new calendar year but also the opportunity for setting personal goals. Perhaps you’ve resolved to exercise more regularly, take up a new hobby or volunteer at a local food bank or animal shelter.

Whatever your goals may be, we hope the people, places, and tips and tricks in this issue will inspire you to focus on wellness in the new year.

And while diet and exercise are vital to your physical health, overall wellness includes your mental health as well. This month, we here at Cross Timbers Lifestyle encourage you to live your best life by taking care of yourself both inside and out.

In this issue, we explore the new FIRE Yoga concept at Flower Mound’s Lifetime Fitness that combines high-intensity interval training with the benefits of yoga. Sweat and breathe—let’s try it! Thinking about a cleanse or re-booting your eating habits? The folks at Nékter Juice Bar can offer some tasty and healthy options to get you jump-started.  

We also show off the newest offerings in athleisure that will have you putting away the same old yoga pants uniform. And we are completely inspired by the amazing story of Rich Froning Jr.—a Crossfit guru dubbed “the fittest man in history”—and think you will be also.   

Editorial coordinator Stephanie Hasbrouck shares some book recommendations centered around renewal and transformation in relation to food, home and the human spirit. It’s important for your personal growth and overall health to stretch and rest your mind, alternatively, as well as your body and spirit. These books will inspire you to move in new directions.

It’s January, Y’all! We’re ready to get back in the game with you and start fresh. Let’s turn the page and start anew. 

Happy New Year!
