Founder, Tom Losee, started RUN/SUP® as a way to combine what he found were two great ways to stay fit outdoors.
A lifelong runner who has run wherever his journeys have taken him is also a pioneer from the early days of stand-up paddling (SUP). As a busy entrepreneur and father who has always enjoyed being active, Losee soon decided it was time to combine running and standup paddleboarding in an efficient mutually beneficial activity that has ultimately made him both a better runner and paddler. Using the backdrop of Western Lake at the scenic WaterColor Inn and Resort for company “R&D”, Losee has been able to fine tune RUN/SUP and all its activities to a captivate audiences ranging from ages 7 to 70.
As Losee continues to develop this burgeoning fitness-lifestyle brand, he looks forward to expanding R/S to markets where many of his fitness class participants come from.
Since we are at a resort, we are always meeting people from all over the world and many ask after taking just one class; when can you bring RUN/SUP to our market?
In order to expand the brand to some of these markets, future RUN/SUP affiliates are being developed as well as brand ambassadors from a variety of fitness backgrounds.
Functional, H.I.I.T, core and body weight-style exercises are all popular right now in a variety of formats. The great thing about R/S is that we capture them all, and most importantly keep your body guessing what that next workout will be.
