Couch Potato to 5K

This is an awesome program, that produces awesome results! The Couch Potato to 5K program is designed to trian those who have never run before or taken break to complete a 5K race! It is also a valuable program to  help avid runners improve speed work.

This program provides accountability for your cardio routine and a great reason to get outdoors with friends and care for your health! Please contact us with questions or if you have any reservations; we want you to know that YOU can do this!

More than 50 new runners have completed their first ever 5K race (3.1 miles) in only 9 weeks with the couch potato method. The program slowly integrates running with walking to get you across the finish line in a healthy, sustainable way.
