For runners, the Winter and Spring months are typically a time for specialized training regiments like Base Building, Speed Work, and Running Efficiency. And Sacfit’s training program covers all these bases.
For beginners, our program focuses on consistency. This means getting your body used to running on a regular basis – a key component to begin any running program, and a great start toward training for 5Ks, 10Ks, half marathons or even full marathons.
For our intermediate and advanced runners, our program focuses on getting to the next level, whether tackling a moderate race distance for the first time (like a half marathon) or improving on speed and technique for a particular race time goal. This means engaging your body in speed and strength workouts to raise your lactate threshold and improve on running efficiency – all necessary elements to successfully increase speed sufficient to meet your goals.
But no matter which program we offer, all provide the coaching, tools and encouragement to inspire our runners to test their new found fitness and abilities at any of the numerous Springtime races in our region.

All these factors contribute toward the ultimate goal of improving fitness, speed, and endurance for any race goals you might have. But in keeping with the Sacfit philosophy, all of our programs are also designed to keep the process of getting fit a fun, enjoyable, and interesting endeavor.
