What the Program Offers: This program is designed to get you running 3.1 miles (5k) in about 8 to 10 weeks. While it sounds overwhelming, it’s not. Our program is designed to allow you to progress at your own pace under the guidance of our Coaching Staff. Running with friends and others who want to complete a road race makes training fun and provides support and incentive to push yourself to achieve your goal. This program will also provide you with long-term benefits such as improved cardio and core strength, balance and overall strength and fitness. Let’s Go!! Contact us 8 to 10 weeks before your race!

Details: Each week, there will be three days of targeted goals: (i) live coaching techniques at our facility in Ansonia on Tuesday or Thursday afternoon (times TBD depending on demand); (ii) a small group jog/run; and (iii) one day of “on your own” activity with guidance provided by the Coaching Staff. You will also receive weekly support through text messaging to make sure you are on target to meet your goals.
