One step at a time, steadfast, No Boundaries programs are the safe, fun and social way to develop a running or fitness routine.
At every level, No Boundaries provides supportive and trained coaches to help participants adopt a regular training routine to safely accomplish your fitness goals. Each participant starts and develops at their individual pace and level of ability. There is no one-size-fits-all workout; your workout plan will reflect your goal and ability, and you will tackle it together with a ton of other people.
Find your inner athlete. Our newest program addition, WalkFIT will start even the most tentative on the road to fitness.
Participants get a detailed training plan based on current ability and goals. Learn how to gauge workout intensity (heart rate) to monitor your workouts to safely and steadily improve your cardiovascular system and ability to easily walk for exercise.
A heart rate monitoring device is highly recommended for WalkFit participants to gauge workout intensity and track workout time and calories burned. Garmin heart rate units will be offered at a discounted rate to participants at the program Kickoff Meeting.
