Stride, a boutique running concept service based in Pasadena, has been acquired by Xponential Fitness, an Irvine-based curator of boutique fitness brands in the world, and joins seven other premiere brands under the Xponential Fitness umbrella, including Club Pilates, Pure Barre, CycleBar, StretchLab, Row House, AKT and YogaSix.
Misa Dugally and Katie Ownbey founded Stride in 2017.
It currently has one location in Pasadena delivering treadmill-based cardio and strength-training classes, tailored to any level of walker, jogger or runner. The brand offers four types of classes for participants, including Signature Sweat, Power Burn, Ultra Run and Quick Burn.
“Since its inception in 2017, Xponential Fitness has been on a mission to procure the best boutique fitness brands and bring them under our umbrella and the acquisition of Stride has brought us to that point as the brand perfectly rounds out our portfolio with its unique treadmill-based workouts,” Anthony Geisler, CEO of Xponential Fitness, said in a statement announcing the acquisition. “With the addition of Stride, Xponential Fitness now has a stronghold on the boutique fitness industry that spans across multiple verticals, from Pilates to barre and yoga, and now running.”
Stride has a sleek and modern atmosphere housing 25 treadmills and cutting-edge technology. Clients run on state-of-the-art treadmills to electrifying, body-moving playlists, curated by the studio’s world-class instructors. Polar heart-rate monitors are worn by members to track results and maximize the benefits of each workout.
Backed by CEO Anthony Geisler and Snapdragon Capital, Xponential Fitness was established to bring the highest quality fitness brands together under one umbrella, housing the best brands in every vertical of the boutique fitness industry and accelerating their growth domestically and internationally, the company statement said.
