Hey guys! I’m Tracy, one of the co-founders of FLIPNFIT. I grew up in Tucson, AZ and moved to Phoenix to go to ASU (I know, I know.. I’m a traitor!) and have been here ever since. I’ve never been a “big box gym” go-er, so used to purchase workout DVD’s galore and workout at home. I loved the variety I got - one day I would do my Pilates video, another day I would do boot camp, or yoga, or cardio. I always chose the 30 minute videos because that’s all I could “make” myself do at home, and I found myself multi-tasking like “oh, I need to start that load of laundry!”, or “ugh, I can’t concentrate until I clean the kitchen”, etc… Because of this, sometimes my 30 minutes would turn into a lazy 20, or sometimes even less!
One day I purchased a daily deal with my good friend Haley to go to a barre studio, and OH MY GOSH I fell in love! I found myself pushing through the entire one-hour class, and at the end thinking that it felt just as quick if not quicker than my 30-minute at home workouts! The environment was upbeat and fun with loud music, energetic instructors, and other people who would inspire you to keep going, hold a little lower, push a little longer. I was hooked! From there I started trying more and more boutique fitness classes and loved all of them (meeting Haley at most of them!), but found that they were SO expensive to continue. IF I could even afford $120-$170/month, I definitely couldn’t afford more than one! So I would have to pick a studio. I would have to pick one workout style. And I didn’t want to do that!
I found myself saying things like “I love this studio, but it’s not that close to me so I wish I could come here on Saturdays when I have extra time without having to pay the high drop-in price” or “wow, I forgot how much I love yoga, but I don’t want to ONLY do yoga because I like barre so much, and feel I need more cardio.
And FLIPNFIT was born.
We are lucky enough to partner with the BEST boutique studios all over town, and provide ONE MEMBERSHIP that lets us access all of them. I love my FLIPNFIT membership, because it was exactly what I was looking for. I hope this membership that was born from my workout woes will be exactly what you have been looking for, too! And hey - if you ever need a workout buddy, I’m in!
