Where to Workout: Garden Oaks/Oak Forest

Where to Workout – Garden Oaks/Oak Forest


The next neighborhood I chose for my “Where to Workout” feature is Garden Oaks/Oak Forest. Settled just outside the loop, a hop, skip and a jump from the Heights, many residents may even chose to workout in the Heights area. However there are several options to chose from right inside the GOOF neighborhood itself. Happy Sweating!
