Facility of the Month: Phatty Nattie's

Phatty Nattie's, located in Fergus Falls, MN, is a brand new official Spinning® facility that focuses on the importance and motivation of working out in a group setting. Their goal is to create a comfortable environment in which the most fit individuals get a challenging workout, while the most unathletic individuals are able to get a kick start on fitness. The studio thrives on creating an unintimidating experience in which all participants feel a sense of belonging and personal success. When you take a class at Phatty Nattie's, there is no need to worry about keeping up—it's all about pushing yourself to your limits and doing what you can!

"Tears of happiness as I saw all of the support and felt the strength that resignated in the room!" said owner Natalie Knutson on the grand opening day of Phatty Nattie's. "I know that between my instructors and I, along with all of our support systems, that this community is on a mission to spread wellness!"
