As the kid who could never run the mile in elementary school, J.C. Lippold is now passionate about creating safe spaces for every person to become the strongest, brightest, and boldest version of themselves. J.C. is a marathon runner, certified yoga teacher, fitness coach, and a man constantly fueled by the students who show up and inspire him daily.
A Minnesotan born and bred, J.C. spent time opening new studios, training teachers, and teaching yoga across the country before returning home in the summer of 2015. Since then, J.C. has been teaching fitness and building bridges between all the amazing communities in the Twin Cities.
In the studio, J.C. has a boundless ability to create graceful spaces. He invites people to be present within the moment and encourages students never to under (or over) estimate what one needs from their daily workout.
J.C. is ecstatic to be a Fitbit Local Ambassador as it is creating opportunities for folks who are looking to get their steps in, stay motivated, and support one another through inclusive and electrifying fitness opportunities year-round!
Sammi is a HIIT Instructor, Certified Yogi & Co-Founder of STÔKE Wellness, a boutique fitness studio and online wellness platform (STOKEWELLNESS.COM [stokewellness.com]). Her “fit philosophy” is powered by the three pillars of health: Fitness – Fuel & Self Care. She believes that the powerful combination of heart pumping workouts, balanced nutrition and daily self-care practices is the key to experiencing overall well-being & achieving one’s goals.
Sammi co-founded STÔKE Wellness with a vision to help others find holistic well-being. In her experience as a leader in multiple fitness communities around the Minneapolis Metro, she saw that many people were experiencing burn out and sometimes frustration because they over-emphasized one of the three pillars of health and neglected the others. At STÔKE Wellness, members will experience access to high quality, high burn workouts both in studio and online, customizable nutrition coaching, and daily guided self-care directives. All of these services are curated for the individual to achieve their goals and ultimately experience balance and wellness in their entire being.
