From the Cherry Creek Sneak to the Boulder Peak Triathlon, Colorado women start training for the many races offered in the Denver Metropolitan area in February.
Fast Lane Jane, Inc., a local business in Castle Pines Village, is here to help with the racing season; either in educational clinics, connecting women with workout partners, or simply providing some of the best workout wear at great prices.
Fast Lane Jane owner and Castle Pines Village resident Meredith Woodrow designed the company with the vision of creating a network of women who could plug into each other for motivation, education and socialization.
After giving birth to three children, Woodrow wanted to reconnect with her body and headed to the gym, which led to setting goals and eventually found her running marathons and competing in triathlons. “I found so many women that wanted to do something but just needed that extra push of a friend to encourage them.” With Fast Lane Jane, Woodrow hopes to provide that extra encouragement.
Essentially there are three parts to Fast Lane Jane. First, Woodrow puts together clinics which promote healthy living and fitness. The clinics are designed to help women set goals as they embark on an exercise routine, locate area races, learn correct nutritional needs while training, and introduce new sports.
Second, Fast Lane Jane helps connect women. Woodrow keeps a card of each of her client’s upcoming races and goals. When Woodrow finds women with similar goals or women training for the same race, she connects them as workout partners.
Finally, Woodrow offers workout apparel. The shop features some of the best sporting name brands like Shebeest, Horny Toad and TYR, but Woodrow’s shop offers the product at a considerably lower price than local sporting goods stores.
In 2009, Woodrow is looking to give back. Fast Lane Jane has partnered with Warren Village, a Denver non-profit organization that helps low-income, single parent families achieve sustainable personal and economic self sufficiency. This year, Woodrow will ask clients that sign up for a clinic to bring a pack of diapers or a box of protein bars that will in turn be donated to the women at Warren Village. Her vision is to eventually take her profits and purchase exercise equipment for women in places of need.
