Lindsey has been a regular at Treadfit since our open. Hear what she shared about her experience at Treadfit. “I started coming to Treadfit right after it first opened. I’m a neighborhood exercise class junkie, and Treadfit is everything I love: intense workouts, good people, awesome instructors, and accommodating class times. All the instructors are phenomenal, but my personal favorite masochists are Colette and Caitlin. They take the “you’re stronger than you know” mantra to a whole new level, and I appreciate them for that. Since coming to treadfit, I’ve shaved minutes off my 5 and 15k, increased my endurance and stamina, and my plank game is on point. It’s also great seeing the transformation of members. Keep calm and tread on! “
Colin O’Neill started with Treadfit this year, and has quickly become one of our favorite clients! Hear what Colin shared about his experience at Treadfit:
“I joined Treadfit in March, looking to shake up my running routine. By that point I had been running seriously for over four years and had completed five half marathons and my first full marathon. My training, though, had reached a plateau and I found myself struggling with nagging injuries that never seemed to go away. I had neglected strength training for too long, and I knew it was time to give Treadfit a try. From the very first class I knew I was hooked. Almost immediately I felt fitter and faster and the gains just kept coming with each class I took. Treadfit has made me a more confident runner and given me the courage to go after running goals I never imagined. From running my first sub-20 minute 5k to eyeing a huge PR at this year’s Chicago Marathon, I know Treadfit will get me to the starting line injury-free and stronger than ever.

Laura started Treadfit in January and has become one of our favorite regulars! Hear what she shared about her experience at Treadfit:
“I finally started attending Treadfit classes regularly back in January because the thrifty shopper in me couldn’t pass up the “New Year New You” class package deal. Up until that point, I had been wanting to start, but had been finding and successfully using, every excuse in the book to not go. Whether I didn’t have anyone to watch the baby, I couldn’t possibly make it the four blocks to the gym in time, or I couldn’t find matching socks. Finally, I sucked it up and went with my friend to one of Collette’s Saturday classes, followed by one of her Sunday classes. I wrestled with going to a 5am class, thinking I couldn’t do it because the baby would wake up, or I would be too tired at work, yada yada, yada, until finally, I did it! It was with Cathy, and it was awesome! I was hooked. 5am wasn’t as bad as I thought, plus class was finished by 5:50 and now I was a few steps ahead for the day. I was worried I’d be tired at work, but it was just the opposite. I had more energy and I was in a better mood. As the weeks passed, I started to feel stronger in and out of class. From increasing my easy pace in class, to double-timing the stairs at work instead of the elevator, I felt great. And, the best part about it is, I still do it nearly 6 months later. I’m still loving going to class! The challenges are great motivation and the teachers are always making changes to classes, keeping me interested and wanting more. I’m so glad I finally cleared the mental hurdle and started. I’ll never stop!
My oldest and dearest friend hit a HUGE goal this week by completing 200 classes! Thank you for being an amazing friend and supporter of Treadfit! 😘 Hear what Katie shared about her experience at Treadfit:
“I started coming to Treadfit regularly last January, attending on average 4 days/week. It’s truly the best full-body workout I’ve ever done! I’ve never been a strong runner, so initially I was very intimidated to start. But today, I look forward to each class, as I know it’s the perfect way to start my day! Each class, complete with treadmill challenges, strength training (my personal favorite), and floor exercises are fun AND challenging, but the best part is how you can go at your own pace. The instructors are ALL excellent, and give such great personal attention to each and every one. From the exercises to the upbeat music, every class is different – keeping it fresh and exciting. Personally, I love checking my workout off my “to-do” list by 7 a.m…beyond physically making me feel great, the early class gives me a mental boost too! I love Treadfit and am so thankful it’s in the neighborhood! I feel SO much stronger (and better) than I did this time last year. Thank you to Jenny and ALL the Treadfit instructors for helping me get into shape!”
Michelle is one of our favorite regulars! Hear what she shared about her experience at Treadfit. “I have always followed the motto “run only when chased.” But due to getting old and my love of fine wine, I knew I had to change my mindset. So, I gave Treadfit a try and haven’t looked back. The combination of running & weight training is truly the best of both worlds. The intervals keep me from getting bored on the treads. I have definitely felt myself getting stronger due to the weight training. Thanks to the heart rate monitors, I can track how many calories I burn, which is usually over 600. Even on the days where I’m just not feeling it, I lower my easy pace and still burn over 500 calories. It is great how every Treadfitter can decide their own pace. But above all, the trainers are the BEST part, just pure sunshine. They are able to motivate and push me to do my best. They are constantly encouraging each and every person. And you know what, we ARE stronger than we think. Thank you Treadfit!” Thanks Mickey!
