For $45, today's deal gets you six-month marathon or half-marathon training program from USA Fit (up to a $95 value). The program begins April 2, and the Groupon must be redeemed by April 15.
The USA Fit training program has helped walkers and runners in more than 50 cities around the globe complete fitness goals for more than 21 years. Though this program is geared toward completing the Omaha Marathon or Half-Marathon on September 25, nonracers can participate to get in shape, build stamina, dissolve stress, and meet new people. On April 2, participants will receive an orientation packet, including a weekly schedule with meeting times and locations around Lincoln. During the first two meetings, walkers and runners will be placed in groups with those of a similar fitness ability and pace. Throughout the following weeks, groups will meet on Saturdays for their weekly run or walk to gradually build mileage and endurance, as well as for speed-training sessions leading up to the race.
Weekly seminars include 15-20 minutes of health- and fitness-focused discussion led by a knowledgeable expert, as well as time for questions with the coach. Participants will also get a USA Fit Lincoln T-shirt, varying discounts at a sports-apparel retailer, and regular participation in fun, running-themed raffles and social activities.
