Couch to 5K Runners

Did you ever want to try running, but didn’t know where to start?

Did you ever wish you had a training partner that would show up for you every week and help keep you motivated while also coaching you to better health and fitness?

Are you looking for a healthy way to make new friends and keep active?

Then lace up your shoes and join us for a fun, social way to get healthy and into great shape as our team of experienced runners help you get off the couch and running or walking a 5k!

PCVRC and Progressive Fitness Coaching are offering a training program this Spring (10-week program in the Fall) that makes it easier than ever to prepare you to run or walk a 5k event. We are ready to coach you to fitness, gradually allowing you to individually determine when you are ready to move on to the next level and with a zero intimidation factor. No experience necessary!
