What people are saying about Intro to Running:
“A great Intro to Running with a fantastically positive instructor. A good course for anyone who wants to start running!”
“Before taking the ARC Running School’s Intro to Running training I was struggling with my breathing. By the time I finished I knew the rules of running and proper running form. I felt better, faster, and stronger.”
“I thought I was not a runner and could never be one. On a whim and by a chance meeting with Erika, I jumped in and discovered I’m not only a runner, but now there’s a whole world opening up for me.”
“As a walker, I felt that I would feel “left out” but was comfortable walking my “sexy walk” and pacer, Kat Torres. Before taking the ARC Running School Intro to Running training I could run only in segments because of breathing problems. By the time I finished the training, I felt stronger and able to finish the task! The class helped me feel accountable because I certainly didn’t want to waste time or money. And now I have a better idea and can more easily land mid-foot.”
“Before taking the ARC Running School Intro to Running training I thought I had good running form. By the time I finished training I seriously improved my form and motivation to run.”
