Peace out with your fellow Hippie Chicks

This year, Air High Fives are all the rage.

Something For Everyone!

Mother’s Day is a time to celebrate family and to reflect on the things for which we are thankful. These past two years have been exceptionally challenging but we have seen so many amazing displays of the human spirit. From frontline workers, to teachers, to grocery store clerks, people all over the country have stepped up their efforts to help us all navigate. Many families and friends have been compelled to stay apart.

For so many people, focusing on exercise and fitness took a back seat to the bigger picture BUT we think exercise and fitness is a major part of the bigger picture. And for those who have dusted off their high school PE uniforms, and broke out their old sneakers to give running or walking a second chance, Welcome Back! Rediscovering fitness is a silver lining for sure and we applaud each and every one of you.
