Register for the Fitness Walking - Late Spring

OVERVIEW

Fitness Walking is ideal for someone just getting started on their fitness journey or the person looking to increase their pace or distance. Participants should be comfortable being on their feet for at least a half hour. The 8-week Fitness Walking program is offered in multiple sessions from spring - fall each year. The Fitness Walking program will help you gradually increase your walking volume and pace, while focusing on proper technique and a strong fundamental base. By the end of the program you will be prepared to walk a 5k distance.

DETAILS

The program meets for multiple sessions between spring and late fall for one one-hour sessions each week. Participants also receive guidance on what to do on their own for days the group does not meet. A typical session will combine instruction on proper form, stretching and how to build endurance. No matter your starting point, you can gain fitness with this program. When you complete Fitness Walking you can choose to repeat it again, or, if you have moved to a new level of fitness and are setting time and improvement goals you may want to consider trying Running 101, which has a run/walk component.

The 2019 program cost for a new participant in Fitness Walking is $145 for an 8-week session.  Returning participant cost (for returners from any previous PR Training program) is $115 for the 8-week session. This cost includes up to 16 weekday coached group sessions (we understand you may not be able to attend them all, but encourage all participants to commit to attending at least one session/week on average.) New participants receive a commemorative program shirt, and ALL participants will be eligible for other giveaways.
