STRIDE Fitness Gilbert
What is your name?
What product or service do you offer?
STRIDE is a treadmill-based interval training concept, delivering a total-body cardio and strength workout designed for every fitness level and led by dynamic STRIDE certified coaches. Using state-of-the-art Woodway treadmills and MyZone heart rate monitors, STRIDE offers a supportive and inclusive environment providing three signature class formats including interval, endurance-based, and strength training.
What makes your business different, competitive, or unique?
STRIDE aims to create a space where walking, jogging, running including weight training and core is understood at all levels to be an essential mode of fitness and recognized by everyone as one of the easiest, most engaging and effective ways to achieve your mental & physical goals. We strive to have an inclusive environment where every member feels welcome and confident.
What is the nicest thing a customer has ever said about your business?
"I am a very new member with STRIDE but let me tell you how great my experience has been so far! Everyone is so friendly, and the workout is great. I love group fitness and finding new fun classes like this is so exciting! I've done the Combo classes which is a mixture of tread and some strength training. I LOVE them! I love that STRIDE starts with a great warm up and real cool down with some great stretching. The staff have the best energy and know how to motivate you to keep going! I'm so happy I found STRIDE and can't wait to go to my next class!
How has your business found value in your membership with the Gilbert Chamber?
STRIDE has made several business partnerships with Gilbert Chamber members. We have offered private classes for team building and networking. We encourage as many of these relationships as possible, please feel free to reach out to us anytime!
What motivates you professionally?
I enjoy offering solutions that are not easy to find, for example it's very difficult to find a studio that will help you improve your walking or running style or prepare for a fun run or 10K. We are the first location in Arizona and I'm very proud to have established it in Gilbert, AZ.
What do you consider to be your greatest success?
Our beautiful STRIDE Fitness studio built from a shell. I'm most proud that it was a 'family' effort.
Who do you look up to or admire?
“For success, attitude is equally important as ability.” ~Walter Scott
When you're not working, where in Gilbert do you spend your time?
We have a second home in Munds Park, AZ. (near Flagstaff), love spending quiet weekends up there in the summer walking our dogs and hope to have it be our summer residence someday.
