About This Activity

Who It's For

Keep the pounds off and the pace going through the Holiday Season!

We aspire (and perspire) to three quality runs a week… not too long and not too arduous, but enough to keep the pounds off and our aerobic fitness at acceptable levels. In-between will be days off and optional indoor/ outdoor cross training such as yoga, Pilates, strength training, XC skiing, etc.

Workouts will be less complex at this time of year as we are not building fitness specifically toward a goal race. Therefore most of the hands-on coaching will be done at Saturday workouts when you will have in-person access to FastForward staff and smaller groups. In addition, a FastForward guide will be available at mid-week workouts to help lead you through a safe, effective and FUN run through whatever conditions Mother Nature may throw our way.
