If you've seen this girl in a class, then you know she's *ON FIRE*. She's a natural super fast runner and she also happens to be a supermom of three boys. She was one of our very first Fly Feet members downtown and we fell so deeply in love with her, we had to have her on our team. Now we're so honored to have her as one of our coaches in Flyzata! Let's to know Katie!
It is our job as coaches is to help you not only bridge the gap between where you are and where your goals lie, but also to help you get to the edge that makes those goals possible. It may not happen the first time, or even the 3rd, but here are a few things to keep in mind as you approach your first few sessions:
Thinking back on my first times in the Fly Feet studio, I remember instantly feeling nostalgic for high school track and cross country. This is because, all of a sudden, I was being coached. I was setting goals and writing them down. Every workout I did, built on the one prior. These are things I did as a high school athlete, but hadn't done since. I quickly realized that I wasn't attending another group fitness class, this felt personal.
Next weekend, we’ll be kicking off our 21-day challenge with one of our tried and true TreadMighty workouts. The TreadMighty workout is the only Fly Feet workout that repeats. Every six weeks or so, we do it to see where we are. TreadMighty was designed as a simple test that is measurable - something you can record and repeat regularly to see your progress ...
As a Fly Feet coach, I get to observe our community from a different lens. When the lights go down and the music goes up in that green room, I get to witness people’s truest selves as they tackle physical obstacles and break down mental barriers. Even though I work in “group fitness”, the activity that happens in our studio is also deeply personal and I am privileged to play a role in helping people realize their physical potential and goals.
The first time I truly realized what a coach was was in the weeks leading up to my very first boxing match. During training camp my coach, Alfonso Vazquez, would check in with me on a regular basis to make sure I was feeling ok and that I was getting the right amount and right type of training in ... Without my coach, I wouldn’t be half the boxer I am today.

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a pill or a machine that made it quick and easy? Well sadly, there are many of those gimmicks on the market. Not shockingly, they don’t work. To see results, ya gotta put in the work. If you’re willing to do that, the journey can be a wonderful, inspiring and even addicting thing.
We talk about mobility everyday in the studio, and end each workout with a short session, to help expedite the immediate recovery process. However, those few minutes after class are not nearly enough to help your body recover and progress in the long term. Here are our four most effective ways to stay injury free and recovery fast!
This week, the Fly Crew is giving a HUGE shout out to one of our devoted members, Haley Ferguson. She consistently helps raise the sun with our dawn crew at 5:30 am. Her incredibly positive, I'm-willing-to-try-anything mindset is what sets her apart in our eyes. In her words, "Knowing that I am better, stronger, faster than I was before is a huge win for me."
