Summer Challenge ended almost three weeks ago now, but that doesn’t mean your healthy lifestyles and habits need to stop there. With summer winding down, it can be hard to stay on track. As fall approaches, take this as an opportunity to review your fitness and lifestyle choices. Here’s some guidance from our awesome coaches for how you can revitalize your earlier summer goals and hold yourself accountable as we enter a new season.
This Fly Feature is all about two teachers, partner workout fanatics, and best friends. Ashley and Teresa have been flyers since the very beginning and have brought so much to the community ever since. Check out all that they have to share about Fly Feet, being a “runner”, teaching in Minneapolis public schools, and the pains of parking downtown.
How many of us have ever set a goal relating to the pull up? This can be a polarizing movement for many of the people that walk into the studio and spy chalk buckets out and bands hanging on the bar. Some feel an overwhelming sense of fear, intimidation, or difficulty. Others walk in and are pumped to swing through kipping pulls ups or test their true strength on the bar. Well, we have some information we want to share with you no matter where you fall on the spectrum!
As we approach the final months of summer we have accumulated lots of sunny outdoor miles and intense workouts in the studio. Throughout the summer it is easy to bypass the necessary time to warm up, cool down, and do the little maintenance that matters in order to keep our bodies strong and healthy. This is why we are focusing on how we prep before our Stride workouts in the month of August.
We MUST introduce our community to one of our most frequent flyers, Priya, as she is on her way to her 500th class!!! We admire her dedication to her fitness, family, and community, which is why she has been a staple in ours! She pushes herself in the studio just as much as she challenges herself outside the studio, professionally and personally. Get to know lots about why we love Priya.
Recovery and injury are two words used frequently in a fitness setting because they go hand in hand. In order to prevent injury we have to make sure were are recovering appropriately. We need to do a better job of addressing both injuries and recovery so we wanted to dedicate this blog to just that.
Balls make a perfect bite-sized snack and these balls are sure to not disappoint. These little cookie dough like balls are essentially just healthy truffles on crack. They are perfectly sweet, but only made with natural sugar, which in this case is maple syrup, and are actually packed with protein. They are perfectly chewy, soft, and literally taste like cake batter cookie dough. Plus, who doesn’t love sprinkles?!
We aspire to have the best coaches in the business, which is why coach Lily has been a rockstar coach for us since day one.

Read on to get to know coach Lily, who is way way more than just a coach!
Sweet potatoes are an excellent anti-stress food and are known to help relax muscles, steady nerves, and balance cognitive function. These wedges are easy and so tasty. If you’re like us, you love tahini. And you love sauce. The tahini-honey sauce drizzled over the sweet potatoes make this recipe simply divine.
For the upcoming Summer Challenge, we are asking you to set three goals focused on nutrition, movement, and lifestyle. Goal setting is the first step towards change, and these are three areas that we are going to concentrate on as we challenge you to chase the best version of yourself. We want the goals you set to be small, attainable goals that will eventually have a big impact on your life over time. Read on for more details!
Stride is known to be a running specific class because we tend to focus on aerobic conditioning while mixing in speed, form drills, and other elements to emphasize efficient running. One of the best ways to build strength and endurance while running is with incline. For the month of July we will be touching incline throughout every session for many specific reasons all designed to make us faster and stronger.

We want you to know why you should train with us so read onward…
We like adding granola to pretty much everything… yogurt, smoothies, salads… or eating it plain! This granola recipe is both sweet, because of the dates, raisins and dried cranberries, as well as savory, because of the tahini. You can vary it up depending on the dried fruit or nuts and seeds you choose to add. Get the recipe here!
