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. 

You will 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.

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
