Race Training

Balance is preparing for spring races… And we want you to join us!

In the next few weeks, we will be rolling out our new Race Training program.  As a participant in this program, you will be following a schedule organized to get you in top shape for the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon (March 14) or the Cherry Blossom 10-Miler (April 12). 

You will be working with race coach, Monica Forquer, who has designed a group program to work on speed, anaerobic threshold, and endurance in order for you to peak in perfect time for your goal race.  As a member of the program, you’ll enjoy working out with others who have the same goals as you, plus you’ll have many other benefits including:

  • One-on-one consultation with the race coach
  • Stretching and nutrition advice
  • Personal Training discounts at Balance
  • Discounts with participating community partners
  • Race day t-shirt

The Programs: 

National Half-Marathon: The 14-week program will consist of  two 1 hour-long workouts (one with a speed focus and the other with a focus on hills or raising anaerobic threshold) during the week and a long run every other week.  The program is great for everyone who can run at least 3 miles at the start of the program, but can help even advanced runners.  Runners will also receive a running calendar, nutrition support, stretching and strength tips, and a 30-minute consultation with their race coach.

The Cherry Blossom 10-Miler:  The programing will be the same, only it will be 12 weeks instead of 14, and is open to anyone who can run at least 1 continuous mile.

What our members are saying: 

“I love massages as much as the next person, but I think it took getting one after doing CrossFit to really understand its importance to any fitness regimen. We beat ourselves up so much that sometimes you forget to take care, recover, and repair, and having the massage membership reminds you to do just that every month.

And not only for the recovery, but in CrossFit we learn over and over again that you can't make big gains without improving form and flexibility, and I think massage has helped me a lot with that, too. Plus, it just feels incredible! Why wouldn't you want to have a massage to look forward to every month??” ~ Amanda Purcell, CrossFit Glover Park Athlete and deadlift extraordinare
