You know running or walking regularly will give you more energy, but do you find that it can be difficult to maintain your momentum? You may have tried to start running or walking, and maybe kept it up for a couple of weeks, but then other obligations just got in the way? Or maybe you’ve been injured, and you need to ease back into being active in a gradual way? Yet, there's a little voice inside you that wonders what it would be like to run or walk a 5k this spring...you know you want to be outside, you want to feel good, you want to breathe easier... but you're not sure where to start?
Fleet Feet Sports Madison provides exactly the kind of structure and support for long-term life changes and growth through our beginners' 5k training class, No Boundaries. The training class sets reasonable goals within an encouraging environment, using a specific training program, skilled coaches, seminars, earned rewards, and group practices to keep the spark of motivation burning. No Boundaries is a class where you can challenge yourself physically and mentally with the support of peers doing the same thing, mentors who have already been through the process, and coaches who are trained and skilled to answer your questions. There are three levels of intensity: walk, walk/run, and run, so you will be able to find your own pace. There is a place here for you, no matter what your pace may be!

Why Good Form Running? Enjoyment is one of our main goals in training with No Boundaries, and we move towards this goal by staying injury-free and honing proper body alignment. Our GFR 1 Technique Class not only provides immediate video feedback on your current form, but you will also learn the four basic elements of good form and several exercises to implement into your workouts to improve your overall running and walking experience. If you have any questions about GFR, we can discuss them at your Goal Assessment or feel free to contact Coach Flo.
