It is crazy to think that two years ago we unlocked the doors to a place that would forever reimagine the spirit of group fitness. It gives a brand new perspective on treadmill running, traditional hiit training, and glowing green lights. We opened the doors to total strangers and now two years later we have a TreadMighty family …

His passions range from work and family to thoroughly planned snowy getaways. Read for more!
November we will focus on training that surrounds time trials. We will develop how we prepare for them and how we can truly benefit from having these checkpoints in our training. We will work with time trials that test our speeds over a range of distances and time domains so that we have a better understanding of our capabilities and ranges.
Scott is a member that walked into class for the first time, gave it everything he had, clapped his hands, and walked out with the biggest smile on his face. As a coach these are the moments that move us and his authentic energy became captivating for us. He has shown up (almost) every day since then with the most dedicated, driven, and inspiring attitude that can’t be missed among staff and flyers. We are so lucky to have him and his big heart in our community!
Read on to learn a little bit more about Scott and why he is so special to all of us at Fly Feet! Plus, have you seen his kicks???

Strength circuits will take on a much bigger role in Stride this month. It is crucial for runners to develop the strength required for a healthy, sustainable gait. When the running gets fatiguing we need to develop the strength to carry us through!
What’s your strategy going into the holidays? How are you going to stay on track? Yes, I’m asking you this in October. Because if we’re going to be successful, we have to start planning now. Enter the Fall Fit Challenge.
Let’s crowd out our current habits that don’t serve us in a good way. Let’s be as consistent as possible. Let’s acknowledge and accept imperfection. Let’s strive to understand why we have slip-ups and bad moments. Let’s encourage each other to get right back on track because it feels good. We can’t wait for to do this together!

As we near the big weekend of races happening in the Twin Cities we want to talk about how to approach tapering. Just like fitness in general, tapering is completely individualized and takes a bit of tinkering.
I am not an athlete. I am not a runner and I could benefit from losing a few pounds. You are not alone in feeling nervous and scared and sore about this next step in your fitness journey. The most important thing to remember is that you are not alone at Fly Feet.
We’re exploring the benefits of moving between and after efforts that are higher in intensity this month in Stride. This means that we are incorporating active recovery into all of our workouts, which can be as simple as light walk on the tread!
Our one and only Coach Clare. While her sport of choice is in a pool, she's a gazelle on the tread. Holding lightning fast speeds for what seems like ... ever. A former competitive collegiate endurance swimmer, we're lucky to bring her competitive edge and drive to be better to the TreadMighty crew. And if you know her, she's one of the nicest you'll meet. Let's get to know this ROCK STAR!!
Remind yourself, if you are moving on the treadmill you are a runner. If you have a body you are strong. You are using it, caring for it, challenging it. It has never been about the speeds you are running or the size of the weights you use, but rather the effort you put in.
I have never met anyone who has told me that they want to be in good shape but only for a year. You want to feel good the rest of your life and that is going to require a new level of commitment. A commitment to recovery.
The friendship and the motivation from Coaches and peers at Fly Feet is what keeps me going.

I’ve been able to stick with Fly Feet where other programs and memberships haven’t lasted very long for me. Read more about this Fly 101 ROCKSTAR!
There is something to be said about signing up for a race or event that feels a little intimidating or out of reach. Putting a goal out there that holds some degree of uncertainty is one of the most challenging things we do as humans. Read more about Amber’s race experience on the blog.
For Julie and Mike Speetzen fitness is a family affair. If you see them in the studio they will always be together (something that started about 15 years ago when Mike convinced Julie to train for a half marathon) and this summer you’ll find their daughter Katelynn joining in the action. Living a healthy lifestyle has been a top priority…
