Let's Do A 5K Challenge!
It's been a long winter and now that the weather is getting warmer, everyone's excited to get outside and get moving! We're kicking off a summer-long promotion that will encourage you to live the best life you can!
Join our FREE 12-week training program to work toward walking, walk/running or running a 5K!
We've contracted nationally recognized running coach, Thad McLaurin to help us begin a virtual, 12-week 5K training program that includes a plan for walkers, walk/runners, and runners. The program will include weekly posts that educate us on proper training, nutrition, strengthening exercises, and other aspects of walking and running, in addition to staying motivated. And, he'll be sharing weekly videos that have simple but highly effective exercises that you can do at home to help strengthen core muscles that will be used doing the 5K.
