The start of a new year is always marked by advertisements for diet programs, gym memberships and more.

In our neighborhood, the beginning of 2022 is accompanied by the opening of a fitness studio. It’s called Fit Social Club and opens at Mockingbird Station on January 7th.

We mentioned this in an October roundup of tenants moving into the mall.

Mockingbird Station presented an ideal location for the Fit Social Club due to its proximity to Uptown, SMU, East Dallas and Lakewood, Lake Highlands and Highland Park, the gym’s owners said in an email.

Fit Social Club was started by Michael and Erin Vara, a husband and wife duo who have over 15 years of experience in the fitness industry. Michael was introduced to indoor cycling while in college, and it started his career in boutique fitness. Erin, who comes from Plano, raced professionally for two years and was sponsored by Adidas and Brooks. After retiring, she began working with young athletes across the metroplex.

The couple had a studio in Uptown, but it closed in February 2021. After that, they and their trainers started doing pop-up classes at different locations, including Mockingbird Station. The Varas don’t live in East Dallas, but some of their employees do.

Now, the Fit Social Club will be there permanently, in Suite 192, which once housed Urban Outfitters before moving to another suite.

Three types of 45-minute classes are available: intensity, cycling and ignition.

All lesson packages will be 15% off January 7-9, and there will be raffles to win free lessons, gift cards, Dallas Mavericks tickets and more. On January 8, StretchLab will host stretching sessions and products from Terlingua Coffee and Clean Juice will be available.
