Beginner 5k Training - Fall '17

Welcome to No Boundaries, our beginner, couch to 5k, training program - Fall Edition

Often, the first step is the hardest and that's why No Boundaries was created.  This program is your first step to a new and healthier lifestyle. It utilizes the run/walk method of training and very gently increases the distance and run time each week. We start with one mile, and run one minute and walk one minute. We change our intervals week to week, while slowly increasing our miles to get closer to our 5k goal.  Little by little each week, you grow and build upon the previous week. This is a supportive, non-competitive class for anyone that can already power walk 1 mile. Join the fun and see what you can accomplish!

We are super excited to announce that we will now be utilizing the Milestone Pod for our No Boundaries class.  This tool is a small device that attaches to your shoe, which allows you to track your miles and check your progress along the way.  The best part? The Milestone Pod is included in the training and it is yours to keep!
