Receive 12 months of workouts + challenges; a special welcome gift; 15% off training programs; group events; and so much more: all on one easily accessible app!

Registration opens in December 2024.


Chatting at an expo table with a runner who had just finished her first half-marathon on a hilly, challenging course, I—Dimity—asked her if she’d train for another.

“Yes,” she answered, “running just makes me happy.” By happy, she meant her whole self was more balanced, patient, strong, motivated, confident, and forgiving (both with herself and with others) after she ran. I signed her book ‘many happy miles’—a phrase since repeated countless times around these parts.

In 2018, we launched Many Happy Miles, the program: an annual membership that offers 365 days of fresh workouts, strong glutes, plenty of planks, and community galore.

Our sixth year is about to be better than ever with added in-person events and accountability buddies, all in addition to what you already love: fresh workouts that feature inclusive cardio sessions, a community that loves to (virtually) sweat together, and extras to enhance all aspects of your life.


Every month, you’ll receive a fresh package of materials: cardio workouts (for runners, walkers, and cross-trainers); strength circuits; yoga, mobility, and other ways to keep your body healthy and moving forward.

Physical therapist, runner, and coach Christy Diller hosts a live session monthly. Member Amanda: “I’m definitely renewing Many Happy Miles if Christy is coming back.” [She is!]

Take it from Many Happy Miler Karen: “The options for strength [2-3x/week] and yoga [1x/month] are more than worth the membership price.”

New for 2024: A chance to coordinate events (anything from a 5K to an epic hike) with other members and the option for an accountability buddy to keep your momentum rolling.

All the workouts, strength videos, and monthly materials live on one simple, easy-to-use (promise!) app.

Pilates, yoga, CrossFit, Stick Mobility, training with heart rate: Many Happy Miles offers all kinds of exercise taste tests.

Many Happy Miles is an annual membership.

When you register in December of 2023, your membership runs from January 1 to December 31, 2024.

On January 1, 2024, your membership renews unless you have canceled it.

We’d love to.

Many Happy Miles focuses on consistency, so our workouts are both mentally engaging and not too demanding, time-wise. In 2024, we will continue to offer inclusive the cardio workouts. We’ll still have plenty of running workouts, of course, but we’ll also modify the workouts so they work if you’re a walker, or you’re using a piece of equipment at the gym like an elliptical or stationary bike.

Although the theme of each month varies, a typical week can include:

4-5 cardio workouts

  • If you’re a runner or run/walker, cardio means a variety of runs, including easy runs, intervals, track work, tempo, and hill repeats;
  • If you’re a walker, cardio includes intervals, varying intensities, and other ways to keep your pace brisk;
  • If you’re a cross-trainer, cardio means pace changes, short + longer intervals, and form checks.

2-3 strength training sessions

  • Every month, we have a fresh strength circuit: 8-10 moves based on a theme.
  • Most circuits have the option of adding weights, but are also effective with simply body weight.
  • We also offer live strength classes, taught by personal trainer Brandi Dockett and Dimity McDowell, 2-3x a week.

Restorative Activities

  • Every month also incorporates a variety of restorative activities, including yoga, easy walks, and foam rolling
  • 1 rest day

Length of workouts: We offer one longer cardio session on the weekends, where you can run, walk, or crosstrain up to 90 minutes; otherwise, no workout is longer than 60 minutes.

We want to keep the element of surprise alive, but we can let you know that certain months will focus on running with heart rate; Pilates for runners; yoga for runners; and mobility for runners. We’ll also have a step Challenge, team activities, as well as plenty of other ways to keep you motivated and connected to the amazing Many Happy Miles community.

Each month has a featured strength circuit. We record that at the beginning of the month, and share it both in your Many Happy Miles membership online portal and in the Many Happy Miles app so you can do it at your convenience.

In addition, we have two to three live strength classes weekly; they are held at 8:30 am ET/5:30 am PT or 9 am ET/6 am PT over Zoom. If your schedule allows, we encourage you to join us—few things better than getting in a workout before the day gets going.

In addition, we have a full library of videos that include tools like the BOSU, Swiss Ball, resistance bands, and steps to mix things up: you’ll never be without strength options in Many Happy Miles!

We design all of the circuits to be functional—and challenging!—without extra equipment, but there are a few pieces we recommend if you want to pick them up: a set of resistance bands and a 9-inch ball.

In addition, we include weights whenever possible, but we realize assembling sets of dumbbells can be expensive. If you see any at a garage sale or Craigslist—or your mom’s basement—grab ’em! A good place to start: 3, 5, 10, and 15 pounds.

Finally, if there is special equipment required for a certain month, we’ll give you a head’s up with enough time to borrow or buy it.

Yes! The Many Happy Miles program will set you up well to run a 5K or 10K. If you have a half-marathon or marathon on your mind, we encourage you to follow a specific training program so you can have a strong race day. (The yearlong 15% discount to the Train Like a Mother Club programs comes in handy there!)

That said, you can do the strength circuits and challenges in Many Happy Miles while you train, and we’ll be waiting for you after—and cheering for you as—you cross the finish line!

All Many Happy Miles members receive 15% off all training programs, including the seasonal programs like Fall into Fitness and (new this spring) Go the Distance!

All new and returning members have their choice of a membership gift with our fresh new logo: options include everything from a visor to a top, all of which come in a variety of colors.

After you register, you will receive an email explaining how to pick your item and have it shipped. We can ship to all international locations, including Canada.

Yes, we’d love to have you, and you’ll be able to receive your membership gift this year.
