  • BEST FOR: Runners who want to complete multiple events in one weekend. PREREQS: Ability to comfortably finish a 4-mile run – your first long run is 5 miles long. That said, because of the Ramp It Up options, this program is suited to a wide range of runners, from 5Kers looking to more than double their mileage to marathoners dialing back on distance and up in intensity. A desire to complete a 10-miler injury free with your body feeling strong. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 15 Going Loony (covering 19.3 miles in 3 races over 2 days) is a delightful and doable challenge! This program is designed to get you across three finish lines feeling strong, capable and smiling. Some weeks, you’ll run five days a week, with an optional cross-training day, and other weeks, you’ll be lacing up six days. Other staples of the week: a mandatory rest day, and strength circuits. Most of the runs are at an easy pace so you can build up your cardiovascular base and not court injury. The longer runs go up to 11 miles to get you mentally and physically prepped for the demands of the distance, but a range is given in later weeks to accommodate all levels—and days where your legs haven’t shown up. About halfway through the program, we introduce workouts where you’ll run in the morning and do a brisk walk in the evening. The idea behind these workouts is to run, rest, then go again—much like you will on Saturday, when you hit a 10k, then turn around and line up for a 5k quickly thereafter.

  • 13.1: CRUSH

    $90.00
    BEST FOR: Experienced halfers looking to nail a killer time PREREQS: An established base of consistent, injury-free running for at least the past 6 months; a few half marathons within the past year or so; and the ability to complete an 8-mile run pretty easily. It also helps to be intimate with more demanding workouts, such as tempo runs or hill repeats.

    What constitutes being ready to CRUSH? Glad you asked. You can currently run at least eight miles and have been injury-free for at least six months. You also need to be able to devote enough time to running and strength training and foam rolling, so if you’ve got another life event happening— a move, a new job, a relationship status change—this might not be the optimal time to CRUSH.

    All that said, if you’re up for it and you follow the plan, you’re going to be thrilled with how strong and accomplished you feel on race day.

  • PROGRAM DATES: Rolling admission; the program starts the Monday after you register. BEST FOR: Runners looking to expand their training to the trails! PREREQS: You need to be a regular runner—at least 30-40 minutes, 3-4 times a week for at least six weeks–with no current injuries. The first week of training features a 50-minute run, as well as some hill repeats and a trail run. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 8

    When you’re running on dirt through trees, not on pavement through suburbia, your spirit has the opportunity to truly soar. With cars, buildings, and other distractions to a minimum, you breath in the fresh air, flow through nature, and connect with your surroundings—and yourself—on a more fundamental level.

    That said, running on trails can be intimidating, especially if you’ve never done it before. Taking your miles off-road means adjusting your effort and paces; getting your body and running form ready for uneven, sometimes jarring terrain; acquiring the correct gear for more advanced trails; and having the basic skills to feel strong so you can run with confidence on all trails.
  • PROGRAM DATES: Rolling admission. Your program begins the Monday after you register. BEST FOR: Women interested learning how to get more comfortable +  knowledgeable about cycling. PREREQS: You do need to know how to ride a bike, but you don’t need to be able to ride it far. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 8 Riding a bike is fairly simple, but cycling—riding a bike for a workout—can be a little more complex. Not only do you need to be able to handle your bike capably and use your gears smoothly, you also need to navigate traffic, climb efficiently, descend safely, and give enough effort so you feel like you've had a good workout. (And don't even get us started on changing a flat tire...) If you're interested in becoming a more capable cyclist and/or want to integrate cycling into your running routine, Become a Cyclist is the perfect program for you. Coaches Jennifer Harrison and Elizabeth Waterstraat will be virtually hanging out in the back pocket of your cycling jersey, teaching you all the best tips + tricks they know as well as answering any questions along the way. In addition, your teammates—like-minded women also getting their cycling legs underneath them—will be doing the exact same workouts as as you. In other words, you may be riding solo, but you're far from alone.
  • As you may already know from personal experience, swimming is not a sport you can pick up with sheer muscle and determination. In fact, trying harder to swim faster might actually produce a negative effect: More splashing and thrashing will only exhaust—and frustrate—you, not make you the smooth swimmer you’d like to be. Truthfully, nearly every swimmer can benefit from an expert coach watching her form in the water and offering feedback. If you’re a beginner, learning and imprinting proper form will make a huge difference in your workouts and performance. If you’re a more advanced swimmer, small technique adjustments will improve your efficiency and speed in the water. FORM ANALYSIS IS A HELPFUL TOOL FOR SWIMMERS WHO: ○ Are fairly new to swimming; ○ Are intimidated by the swim portion of the triathlon; ○ Finish the swim portion of a triathlon exhausted, and are unable to utilize their fitness on the bike and run; ○ Have neck, shoulder, or other pain while swimming; ○ Want to become more efficient in the water; or ○ Are focused on minimizing the risk of future injury.  
  • BEST FOR: Truthfully, nearly every runner can benefit from an expert coach watching her form and offering feedback; the coach may uncover an injury-in-waiting or an easy way to increase efficiency. PREREQS: Are regularly injured;Are coming back from pregnancy, when alignment has shifted, want to increase speed, know they can be a more efficient runner, or are focused on minimizing the risk of future injury.

    A second set of eyes is always a good thing. whether you’re polishing up a work project or wondering if your living room should actually be painted orange.

    Your running form is no exception. In fact, except for race pictures, you rarely see yourself running. While you can feel balanced and strong on the run, your body’s subtle movements, which a seasoned coach can see, may be telling a different story. If your right hip drops with every step, or your posture is too upright, or your arms are spaghetti-like, you may be setting yourself up for an inefficient run (at best) or a serious injury (at worst).
  • HEART + SOLE: AN INTRODUCTION

    $80.00
    BEST FOR: All levels of runners who want to use heart rate to guide their training. Whether you are coming off the couch, returning from an injury, finding your post-pregnancy groove, or simply wanting to take your fitness to the next level, this program is a healthy, sensible, and fun next step in your running journey. PREREQS: No running experience, fitness level, or specific athletic background is necessary; this program meets you exactly where you are fitness-wise and helps you become a more fit, efficient runner. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 8 In this Introduction to Running by Heart Rate, you’ll calculate your personal zones with one of two heart rate tests, and use that data to guide your training. You’ll test twice more during the eight-week program so you’ll be familiar with the process and be able to adjust your individual zones appropriately as you gain endurance and work up to a 75-minute run.
  • BEST FOR: Anybody who is looking to do an epic day hike: Yosemite's Half Dome, a Colorado 14'er (or 13'er!), The Enchantments, or a similar challenge. PREREQS: A regular exercise routine: you workout at least 4 times a week for 30-45 minutes. NUMBER OF WEEKS: 20

    Taking a day to head deep into Ma Nature–and away from the crowds—is always a day well spent.

    This 20-week program is built to so you can feel strong and capable on a day-long epic hike. In other words, on your target hike, you'll be so prepared, all you have to focus on is taking in the scenery and taking in calories regularly.

We've designed this program to work for all kinds of hikes from Yosemite's Half Dome to a Colorado 14'er to The Enchantments. In addition to plenty of climbing to build lower body strength + endurance during the weekdays, your longest training days will be a percentage of the elevation and mileage you'll cover on your epic hike day.

  • BEST FOR: If you’ve had a situation, goal, or issue swirling around in your brain for a few months, taking an hour to talk through it is a great way to clear up the clouds and gain perspective.

    Maybe you’re a newer runner, and want to plot out your upcoming year of races with an experienced coach.

    Maybe you’ve had a disappointing race, and you need to talk through it—and get psyched for another training cycle. Maybe you’ve had a string of injuries, and are finally ready for an in-depth conversation about how to break the cycle. Maybe you’ve got your eye on a Boston-qualifying time, and need to know how to nab that sucker. Maybe you’re thinking of transitioning from runner to triathlete—or vice versa—and want help and want help laying out the steps (and strokes!) you’ll take. If you’re in one of these—or countless other what-do-I-do now—scenarios, a Coaching Consult is the perfect next step for you.
