January 22, 2012: Fleet Feet Sports has been offering the No Boundaries: Learn to Run Program for 6 years.  February 2012 will mark a new phase in Fleet Feet Sports’ programming division.  Fleet Feet Sports will be adding a WalkFIT Program alongside the regular Learn to Run Program.  WalkFIT is for those who truly are new to exercise and who just want to walk.


In 2011, Fleet Feet Sports starting offering two locations for this program and with the recent retail expansion of their second store at 2522 Ridgeway Avenue, Fleet Feet Sports will continue to offer an East and Westside location for participants.  Having two locations allows participants the flexibility to attend coached group workouts more frequently and to remain committed.


The No Boundaries: Learn to Run & WalkFIT program offers a beginner and an advanced level; the beginners train for a 5K, while the advanced train for a 10K.  The programs have coaches who lead workouts and support participants throughout the program.  The 12 week program provides participants a workout schedule that can easily adjust to fit almost any lifestyle.  The program includes group workouts and a variety of workshops to educate new runners about stretching, nutrition, and injury prevention.


No Boundaries offers 4 different program levels for varying degrees of physical fitness level:

  • NoBo 2.0 – Perfect for those who recently ran their first 5K and want to improve but aren’t yet ready for longer distances.  This program improves speed, endurance and performance at the 5K level.
