Fleet Feet Sports Opening Store #2 in Oro Valley!


We are so excited to announce the planned opening of a second Fleet Feet location in the Tucson area to serve folks who live in the north and west parts of town. 
 
The new store will be located in the Oracle Crossingsshopping center on Oracle Road just north of Ina Road. By mid-August, we will be able to better serve our current customers who have asked us for a Northwest location, while bringing our unmatched customer service and training programs to more people in the greater Tucson area. 
 
Thanks to the support of our amazing customers over that last nine years, Fleet Feet continues to bring Tucsonans high quality products, outstanding customer service and ever-popular training group programs. With this expansion, Fleet Feet will be accessible to more people in the greater Tucson area so we can share our passion for serving customers and encouraging the fitness lifestyle. 
 
As our plans solidify, we'll update you on the opening date. In the meantime, let your friends and family who have said "Fleet Feet is too far away" know that those days are over. And, if you've always wanted to be part of our training programs but the meeting places were too far of a drive, see the adjacent article for more good news.



Training Programs Expand Across Tucson

One of the driving factors in our decision to open a second location is to make our training group programs more accessible to people in Tucson. With group runs in the mornings and evenings, we want to offer programs that meet closer to where more people live. With our new location on Oracle near Ina Road, we can serve the Northwest Tucson area including Oro Valley and Marana. 

When our Fall training groups kick off in July and August, Fleet Feet will offer simultaneous programs - Eastside and Northwest side. The East Group will meet at many of the same places that it has for the last eight years, and the new Northwest side group will meet in the area around the new location (Oracle Rd./Ina), as well as many other spots in the area (to be determined).

Free Yoga Clinic at Fleet Feet May 30

As one of the key components of fitness, flexibility is often overlooked by many of us. Whether you are trying to achieve peak performance or are more casual with your workouts, keeping muscles and connective tissues pliable is crucial for injury prevention. Yoga is a great way to maintain and increase your flexibility. It's also great for strength, balance, and relaxation. 

Diane Lee Zibaoui of Di-namic Fitness will be at Fleet Feet on Thursday, May 30 at 6:15 pm to discuss specific yoga poses/stretches and breath work from which every walker or runner will benefit.  Diane will then take you though the poses and stretches, giving you an opportunity to practice and learn proper form. 

Clinic attendees should come dressed in workout attire and with a mat.

 

Space is limited, so reserve your spot for this free clinic, RSVP toanne@fleetfeettucson.com or call520-886-7800.

 

 

Need Help to Beat the Heat?

Did you know that the average high temperature for Tucson in June is 100 degrees, average rainfall is .21 inches, and the sun stays out for an average of 14 hours each day? As they say, it's a dry heat.

What does that mean for those of us active folks? It means we have to get out early, protect ourselves from the sun and stay hydrated. 

Let Fleet Feet help you prepare for your summer activites. From clothing to keep you protected in the sun, hydration systems and electrolyte supplements to keep you moving, and swim accessories for the pool, we've got the gear you need for an active and safe summer.
