Pace Groups: We know that not everyone coming into the program will be at the same level. We will split the program up into 3 groups. Each group will have a coach to help them complete the workout.

  • Walkers: This group is for people who are not working out at all and looking to start a healthy lifestyle.
  • Walkers/Runners: This group is for people who have been doing some kind of fitness activity other than running a few times a week.
  • Runners: This group is for people that have done some running in the past but maybe are looking to get back into running after a long time off.
