New Running Route: Early Bird 5K!

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens (@ahrensdesiree)

There is nothing more invigorating than waking up early in a city. Even though there are buildings, houses, and cars all around…everything is quiet. There is something peaceful about being the only one awake and running in the city. Street corners that would normally be busy are completely open. You don’t have to swerve around […]

It’s Time to Let Go

By Chad - Your 5k-Marathon Run Coach Chad - Your 5k-Marathon Run Coach (@fritschechad)

Treadmills are the most common used piece of equipment in the gym but did you know that many of us, young and old, are using them incorrectly? What are so many of us doing wrong on a treadmill?  We are holding on.  Being nervous using the treadmill your first few times is one thing. However, […]

Moving During My Pregnancy & Adjusting Workouts

By Ashlie Smith Ashlie Smith (@smitha123)

Essential Yoga Experience In addition to some other classes I have been trying, I decided to attend a Saturday morning Essential Yoga class, instructed by Julie. While I thrive in the cardio, strength and high-intensity interval workout classes, yoga and Pilates have not been part of my exercise repertoire. I realize, however, the importance of […]

Water Aerobics = Awesome!

By Ashlie Smith Ashlie Smith (@smitha123)

The other day I decided to try my first water aerobics class. At the time, I was just shy of eight months pregnant and knew that this workout would be a wise choice for my aching joints and muscles (due to the human growing and stretching inside of me…yikes!). I took Meg’s Tuesday morning Fluid Motion […]

Back to Nature

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens (@ahrensdesiree)

The cool breeze hits my face as I open the door. I position my sunglasses and pull my long sleeves down over my knuckles. I breathe in the fresh crisp air and notice the buds just starting to form on the trees. I take a moment to appreciate this time carved out for myself. I […]

Women’s Studio Workout

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens (@ahrensdesiree)

In a previous life of mine, I worked with women who were deathly afraid to walk into a large gym. No way were they going to even look at a large gym let alone actually work out there. What if someone saw them? What if they looked like they didn’t know what they were doing!? […]

Are you tired of joint pain from running?

By Chad - Your 5k-Marathon Run Coach Chad - Your 5k-Marathon Run Coach (@fritschechad)

I began running shortly after graduating from high school.  Running became my way of maintaining my health and physical fitness.  It was also my way to manage stress.  Whether I was going out for a long run to enjoy the scenery and fresh air or going out for a run to see how fast of […]

Please– join me in my running misery

By Desiree Ahrens Desiree Ahrens (@ahrensdesiree)

When I have a moment to myself at home I tend to make rash decisions. This notably occurred about 2 years ago when I just happened to be in a good mood while my three small kids were at grandma’s. Even though I had never given much thought to a marathon, I went ahead and registered […]

Trainer Truths – Weight Lifting

By Chad - Your 5k-Marathon Run Coach Chad - Your 5k-Marathon Run Coach (@fritschechad)

Myth:  Lifting weights isn’t needed to be healthy and fit. Truth:   The type of physique most men and women want actually requires that they gain a fair amount of muscle mass, and weightlifting is the only way to do that efficiently, but there are also other benefits to consider here. Research has shown that starting […]
