If you’re running away from your stress this summer vacation, fitness enthusiast Brian Ripka says you might as well run to stay fit while you’re at it.
The 47-year-old founded RIPPED Fitness in 2014, a SoulCycle for runners that specializes in a high-intensity workout combining time on the treadmill with bootcamp routines. The first location opened in Rye Brook, NY and the next one is set to open in NYC this fall.
