14-Week Classes, Monday evenings
Begins on Monday, September 12th at 6:00pm
Whether you walk a mile or run a mile, you have gone a mile. The Red Sea Fitness walking courses teach proper foot strike, nutrition, stretching, and workout plan. While some will move into running classes from this course, many will remain walking and enjoying its lower impact benefits.
A 5K race is on many bucket lists, but few have a plan or the support to carry it out without injury and discouragement. The Red Sea Fitness Beginning 5K course is a reasonable, flexible, and gradual plan to cross the finish line of your first 5K. With over 400 Red Sea Fitness Team members completing their first 5K this year, you can be sure we can help you get there.
Most participants of this course have completed a 5K or have simply transitioned from another endurance sport. While the satisfaction of completing a 5K is enough for some, many will decide to continue on this wellness journey and desire to move quicker in the next race. The Red Sea Fitness Intermediate 5K training course begins to introduce speed work and tempo running to the workout plan. A personal best is surely in the works.
Over 6 miles of running or walking seemed like a dream only a few months ago, yet after completing the 5K, it all seems possible. The Red Sea Fitness Beginning 10K training is a great next step for those seeking longer distances. With careful planning factored into the right buildup of miles and the proper amount of recovery days, this course is sure to have you at the 10K finish line.
After completing a 5K and 10K, some runners and walkers will choose to speed themselves up for the next event. The Red Sea Advanced 10K training joins speed, interval, incline, and distance sessions to develop a quicker athlete for the upcoming schedule of races. It requires this type of training to get quicker for future events.
Red Sea Strength is led by Melynn Hunter, whom is a certified personal trainer with a degree from MSU in Nutrition. This course teaches the importance of range of motion, flexibility, proper mechanics in weight training, and reducing the risk of runner injury by strengthening key muscles.

Red Sea Fitness - Joplin
The Red Sea Fitness Team is much more than teaching physical wellness. Our approach consists of multiple Biblical components that emphasize total well-being; financial, mental, emotional, physical, and mostly spiritual. Since our small and slightly shortsighted beginning in 2013, nearly 500 family team members have completed their first 5K run, some even competing in 10K, half marathon, and marathon events.
