Group treadmill workout studio Fly Feet Running is opening a second location

Fly Feet Running opened its first spot in Minneapolis less than a year ago.

Less than a year after opening, a Minneapolis fitness studio that offers super-intense treadmill-centric workouts is planning a second location.

Fly Feet Running – which has described itself as a "boutique fitness studio" – began offering classes at its downtown Minneapolis spot late last year. The space offers group classes and coaching all based around running on a treadmill.

You can watch their promo video here, but here's a little GIF preview:

Group treadmill classes have been a thing over the past few years, with Competitor Running giving credit to the Mile High Run Club in New York for starting the trend. Since their success, treadmill studios like it have popped up across the country.

And now here in Minnesota, the team behind Fly Feet Running is prepping its second location.

In a Facebook video, the company says it's opening a new fitness center in Wayzata, with an estimated opening sometime in December. The Business Journal says it will be in the Promenade – a development that includes shops on the ground level, with living spaces above.

Other shops there include Anthropologie, College Nannies & Tutors , and Twiggs Salon and Spa. In addition to Fly Feet Running, a Rustica bakery and 44 North Boutique are also listed as "coming soon."
