Couch to 5k
The couch to 5K program is designed for the novice or newer runner that is just starting a running program. Although the title of the program implies being ready to participate in a 5K, it is not required. Our certified running coach will have a progression plan for participants that will get us off of the couch and into the running world in a progression that can guide someone newer to running. Members of our wellness team will be leading a support group for participants through Facebook. If you desire a more custom running plan, you can add on a one-on-one package with our running coach.
This is an 8-week program with a progression plan and numerous running tips that will cover topics such as selecting footware, training in the winter, treadmill use, stretching and recovery tips.
