commit to getting strong

Sometimes achieving a healthier lifestyle can be as simple as adding one more workout into your schedule. Especially if you turn that workout into a training session where you build real muscle and burn fat. A pool of sweat should not always be your end goal. One more workout. That may be all it takes to take you to the next step. Commit to getting strong this month. Here are a few ways to go about it.

At Fitness on the Run, we’ve significantly reduced the price of our semi-private sessions for a limited time. For just $50, you can come to one of our 8 semi-private training session once a week for one month. That’s just $12.50 for a personal training session that you share with 3-4 others of similar fitness levels. You will learn new ways to approach your training and set the tone for your fitness for the month, or maybe even all of 2015.


If your schedule really has no room for an additional workout, then commit to never missing your current exercise sessions. And if you do not have a regular fitness program, find one. Moving helps calm nerves, reduces appetite, and makes you happier. Yes, research has proven that too.

And if for some reason you just can’t find the time for your regular workout or focus on developing a fitness routine right now, commit to taking the stairs at work or home 20 times in a row. Yes, 20. Skip a step if it’s safe. Throw in 10 push ups (2 at a time). This will only take 10 minutes and you’ll start feeling your efforts immediately!


  • The latest from Adrien
Adrien founded Fitness on the Run in 2004 out of her home. After spending 15 years developing her own personal definition of wellness and watching literally thousands struggle with theirs, in 2019 Adrien founded Alexandria Wellness, the home for the Concierge Wellness Program and Corporate Wellness with Adrien Cotton. Today, “FOR” is home to more than 250 clients, 12 instructors, and hundreds of inspirational success stories. She is passionate about helping others view their fitness as a journey, not a quick fix. Adrien’s recipe for success herself has evolved from a rigid training plan of a 4-5 hard workouts per week to some days getting in her 10,000 steps and her 7.5 hours of sleep and her beloved 5-Minute Flow. Now, she believes the most important ingredient is making small changes for big results, even if it’s only for five minutes a day. Adrien works daily to help clients understand that the three most vital components of any effective fitness program are consistency, sustainability, and fun. Adrien believes we all benefit from being curious about our bodies and our health and that change, or improvement, is always within reach despite what your “inner voice” or others may tell you. She believes her vocation is to help Alexandrians learn the importance of a comprehensive approach to wellness, weight loss, and contentedness with yourself, and that every person has the right to feel good about themselves. Most days, you can find her helping clients with their wellness and listening to FOR client’s success stories. Adrien prides herself on her practice of mindfulness, meditation, and putting it all into perspective.

Fitness on the Run is Fitness for Life. Combining a focus on strong bodies and strong minds with a robust wellness education program and unparalleled personalized attention, we provide fitness for health, longevity and functionality.
