As is turns out, fitness research has determined that walking is one of the best forms of exercise for keeping fit and losing weight. And it’s not so stressful on your body! Okay, well we knew that, but it’s nice to have science on our side, too. Sacfit offers a great walking program for beginners and season veterans.
For our beginners, we provide a training program with workouts that gradually increase each week to promote success as well as reduces injuries. We tailor individualized programs that allow you to go at your own pace. And rather than focusing on miles, our beginning team members workout based on timed walks (miles are so overrated). Since there are no miles to worry about, you just begin your walk and when half the allotted time has passed, you turn around and return back.
For our intermediate and advanced walkers, our training program is geared toward a number of options to choose from, be it better fitness, training for a particular race distance or time goal, or even transitioning from walking to running. And with each program, we provide the coaching, tools and encouragement to inspire our walkers and transitioning runners to test their new found fitness and abilities at any of the numerous Springtime regional races.
At the end of our 16-week program, Sacfit is teaming up again with Capital Road Race Management owner Rich Hanna to present The 13th Annual American River Parkway Half-Marathon/5K – Sacramento’s largest Springtime half-marathon and 5K race. The race will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2019, to coincide with our final day of the program.
All these factors contribute toward improving fitness and health. But in keeping with the Sacfit philosophy, these programs are also designed to make getting fit an enjoyable experience. After all, if it’s not fun, what’s the point?
