Zero to Fit

Zero to Fit is a running/walking program for adults interested in using running and/or walking to improve their overall fitness and health. If you want to get off the couch and begin exercising, Zero to Fit is the place to start your journey. Results vary per individual, but many of our participants are able to go from doing 0 miles of running/walking to doing three miles over the course of the 10-week session. 

Designed with the true beginner in mind, Coach Amanda will teach you how to warm up properly, learn how to do running drills that make you a stronger and more efficient runner, experience carefully crafted workouts that address a wide variety of fitness levels, learn how to cool down after running, and learn the proper stretches to do afterward.

If you are already doing some running or walking, Coach Bob will offer more advanced beginner workouts designed to help you increase your mileage and improve your endurance and speed.  You will be prepared to enter local 5k’s or 10k’s, should you choose to do an event. 

All participants are encouraged to check with their physician for approval first before registering for any exercise program.

“Having someone to train with is almost as important as having a coach.  Even if you come to the program not knowing anyone you develop friendships and really look forward to the weekly workouts.”  Steven

Meet Our Coaches

Coach Bob

Hometown:  Arlington, MA
How many times have you run the Boston Marathon? More than 5, less than
10 times
Years Running? 40 or more
Favorite workout? Indian file. Its fun and the runners run a mile without even knowing they’ve completed four laps on the track. They have fun doing it!
Best advice for beginners: Stay consistent. Do something every day- either run or walk- to create a habit.

Coach Amanda

Hometown: Flushing NY & Lake Mary, FL
Why did you start running? To help me lose weight.
PR for 3.1 Miles: 24:27
When I’m not running I’m: In the gym training or seeing massage clients.
Best advice for beginners: Believe in yourself, don’t give up and be consistent.

Coach Dan

Hometown: Berwick, Pazz
Years Running? 8
Favorite local place to run? Winter Park
Favorite workout? Mile Repeats 
Which do you like better:  Running alone or with people? I like running with people for the sense of community, but there are days when it is beneficial to run alone to clear my mind. 
Best advice for beginners: Don’t compare yourself to others.
