In addition to the above, you have the option to register for some additional training opportunities for and additional $25 each:

Cross-Training Workout:

We feel so strongly that cross-training makes you a better runner that we have added an affordable cross-training option to our training group offerings.  For only $25, you will receive a pass valid for 10 visits to Marcel’s Total Fitness gym (located next to our Tanque Verde location).  This pass gives you full access to all gym equipment as well as the ability to participate in any fitness class offered, including spin, yoga, core fusion, fitness and boot camp.  Individual personal training is not included.  For those on the Northwest side of town, Marcel will be bringing his workouts to the Fleet Feet Oracle Crossing store.  Weekly in-store training sessions (tentatively planned for Thursdays) will include dynamic stretching, resistant band strength training, dumbbell work, full core work out, functional strengthening and body weight training. 

Intermediate 10K Workout:

For those of you in the Distance Group who are looking for an additional night of running with great people, this $25 option could be for you.  The Fall 2015 intermediate 10K Running Group meets on Mondays at 6 p.m. at various locations on both sides of town and utilizes the run/walk method.  Typically, the group is split up based on pace, so no one is pushed (or held back).
