Local Businesses Partner to Improve the Community Health

Published Thursday, March 9, 2017

Fleet Feet Sports, the local retail leader in building and supporting the Fox Valley running community, today announces a partnership with the experts at Advanced Movement Studio to enhance their 10-week Couch to 5K program in 2017. Participants that join the Coach-lead, Mentor-supported program, now in its either year in the Fox Valley, will have the opportunity to supplement their walking/running with a weekly workout at Advanced Movement Studio (AMS).


The first No Boundaries program of 2017 begins Monday, March 13 and meets 2x weekly; Mondays and Thursdays at 6:00PM for group workouts. Participants receive weekly e-newsletters, stay in contact with the group through a private Facebook group, and are introduced to additional tools and resources within the community that will support them on their road to success. "We're excited to assist Fleet Feet and complement their…program with an opportunity to attend our yoga classes,” says Danny Rivers, Corrective and Performance Specialist at AMS. “Along with a variety of yoga classes, we offer movement quality based services to prevent injury and increase a healthy, active lifestyle."


An active lifestyle and a pro-active approach to managing your personal health are more critical than ever before. In a community where more than one-third of residents report having high blood pressure (source: 2010 Fox Cities LIFE Study), programs that improve heart health and reduce risk factors associated with heart disease are imperative. From 2007 to 2011, we also saw the prevalence of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes increase in Outagamie and Calumet counties (source: 2016 Fox Cities LIFE Study).
