From crushing her 5K PR, knitting the cutest baby hats for women's shelters and cancer patients, eating her veggies and drinking her wine, there is so much to know about Patty T. She's been with us since almost the beginning and her biggest learning here is that she can always do more than she thinks!
How amazing is it that we live in the fittest city in the whole US of A?? The Twin Cities edged out Washington D.C. as The Fittest City in the American Fitness Index as measured by the American College of Sports Medicine. Listen to Kristin on the new Twin Cities in Motion podcast, "Move Together" talking about our new designation and how amazing it is to live in such a fit city!
The magic of Fly Feet is multi-dimensional and one of the most important dimensions are our coaches. Their energy and personality bring the workout to life, and Will, one of our newest coaches, is a natural at this! Will is an experienced dancer, runner, coach, coffee drinker, dreamer, and honestly the list could go on. Read on for more!
Standing in the grocery store with an overflowing cart and kids restless to leave, making the tradeoff for conventional foods that are readily available and a lot less expensive sometimes seems like the right call instead of hunting around for their more expensive organic counterpart. However, after reading this study, you might change your mind. We did.
This week, the coaches wanted to give a shout out to one of our long time members, Nick B. He has specifically inspired all of our coaching staff day in and day out. Nick is a straight crusher and he shows that in every aspect of every workout that we throw at him. But, It wasn’t always this way ...
As coaches we understand that nerves and the intimidation factor can be in the forefront of your mind when grabbing that piece of chalk and side-eyeing the butcher paper. However, we know that the second you let yourself be vulnerable in the studio there is no limit to what can happen. Check out the ah-mazing Whitney B.'s story ... from nerves to now chasing her best! :)
Aaron talked about the value of sprouting grains in this blog. Here is another delicious on-the-go snack we tried with sprouted quinoa. Yum!
My two favorite things to do as a kid were either play games or be outside. And if I could do BOTH and the game involved physical activity outside it was basically the best day ever! (And by “when I was a kid” I actually mean currently as a 26 year old...) There is just something about active games and fresh air and sunshine that are glorious for my soul. Now living in Minnesota, I feel the pull even more to soak up the months where the inside of your nose doesn’t freeze as soon as you step outside….how does summer fly by so fast???! We may never know that answer, but at Fly Feet we want to soak it up with YOU while it is here!
Introducing: Fly Feet Games
Fly Feet Games is a five-week series of outdoor training sessions every Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m. at The Commons in August. We have pulled together the brain trust of the coaches and created some super fun team workouts at the Commons together as a Fly Feet family. Like all Fly Feet workouts, all abilities and speeds are welcome and it will only be as challenging as you make it. And, if you, like me, are motivated by some good old fashioned competition, you will get a chance to win points each workout that will add up to your overall score. At the final workout we will announce our athletes that won Gold, Silver, and Bronze. (You do not have to tally your scores if you do not want to! This is just an option for those of us who thrive in competition.) Each workout is totally different and you do not have to bring your own team to come. Just show up and we’ll organize everyone into teams. Come and play with us!
Each Wednesday in August – 8/2, 8/9, 8/16, 8/23, 8/30
The Commons – 425 Portland Ave. S. (right in front of US Bank Stadium)
