TeamFootWorks has crafted Fitness 101, 5K Beginner Training Program, for anyone who wishes to enter or return to a healthier lifestyle. Regular exercise can help protect you from heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, non-insulin dependent diabetes, obesity, back pain, improve your mood and help you to better manage stress.
We take the large goal of completing a 5K or 3.1 miles and divide it into small, manageable run and walk segments.
Early in the program, the goal may be to run one minute and then walk one minute for a total of 10 minutes. We gradually increase the time until you’re able to run/walk for 40 to 45 minutes.
We hope you supplement our program with some exercising on your own, or with your new training partners throughout the rest of the week (another two days a week for maximum results). By run/walking for 30-45 minutes, 3- 4 days a week you will soon feel and see the positive results of a fitness-conscious lifestyle. By consistently following our Fitness Program, you benefit from increased cardiovascular fitness, muscle tone, weight control, and improved attitude/mood.
Also, the camaraderie developed with those who care about their own health and fitness will encourage you stay motivated and eager for every run! Many of our “graduates” of Fitness 101 have continued to run and many are now successful veterans of half marathons, marathons and triathlon races. They will be there to encourage and demonstrate the ease to which you can achieve the same!
There is no pressure or time goal that you have to fulfill – we are here to work out and get fit together!
