This program meets for 6 weeks and offers three training sessions each week. You can attend as many of them as you can. It will then be offered again if you would like to continue training, or you can also join one of our other programs.
We understand that you may miss from time to time and coaches will help you if conflicts arise.
You are not expected to have any previous running experience, or even be able to run 30 seconds without a break. (If you have previous athletic experience, Running 101™ is probably a better fit.)
A typical 45-minute session will include active warm-up, stretching, a walk/jog/run component, and post-workout discussion on relevant training topics like running technique, hydration, motivation, and more. The active walking/running component of the training is supplemented with stretching and conditioning.
We hope to expand Start with a Step in the summer months. In the interim, you can begin training in the =PR= FIT program, which is a monthly subscription program including some running components as well as a lot of functional fitness – strength, flexibility, agility, technique…. No experience is needed for =PR= FIT and you can start any time.
Starting in 2020, we’ve simplified pricing. All participants — new and returning — pay the same fee — and =PR= Training is covering the registration company transaction fees on your behalf. This change should reduce complications in the registration process.
