FREQUENTLY ASKED TRAINING QUESTIONS

1. CAN I BRING MY DOG, FRIEND, FAMILY MEMBER OR CHILD TO TRAINING?

WE LOVE FUR BABIES, YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS TOO! HOWEVER, WE’D LIKE TO RESPECT THE SAFETY AND WELL-BEING OF YOUR PEERS; AS WELL AS, PROVIDE UNDIVIDED ATTENTION TO REGISTERED PARTICIPANTS, AND ASK PARTICIPANTS TO REFRAIN FROM BRINGING THEM. MAKE IT A BUDDY SYSTEM AND HAVE FRIENDS/FAMILY REGISTER WITH YOU.

2. HOW LONG IS TRAINING?

GREAT QUESTION! TRAINING WILL GENERALLY LAST NO MORE THAN ONE HOUR.  WE MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL MEETINGS DURING THE WEEK FOR A SEMINAR, AND/OR INCORPORATE THESE INTO THE DAYS WE MEET FOR TRAINING. THIS MAY EXTEND OUR MEETING TIME OVER AN HOUR. PARTICIPANTS WILL BE PROVIDED WITH A SCHEDULE OF THE SEMINARS.

 

3. I CAN’T MAKE ALL THE TRAININGS. SHOULD I STILL SIGN UP?

YES! THIS PROGRAM IS ALL ENCOMPASSING. YOUR WEEKLY EMAILS AND TRAINING SCHEDULES ARE PROVIDED TO KEEP PARTICIPANTS MOTIVATED AND ON TASK. FURTHERMORE, A GROUP FORUM WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PARTICIPANTS TO LINK UP TO TRAIN TOGETHER. LASTLY, YOU’LL HAVE THE GROUP SUPPORT, COMPANIONSHIP AND TEAM CAMARADERIE ON RACE DAY.

 

4. I MISSED THE REGISTRATION DEADLINE; CAN I STILL REGISTER?

YES! HOWEVER, THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO GRADUALLY AND SAFELY BUILD UP ENDURANCE AND FITNESS; THEREFORE, WE WILL ACCEPT REGISTRATIONS NO MORE THAN ONE WEEK AFTER THE START DATE.

 

5. DO YOU RUN IN THE RAIN OR SNOW?

CERTAINLY! BEING PREPARED TO RUN IN ALL TYPES OF WEATHER IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF TRAINING; THAT IS UNLESS, SAFETY BECOMES AN ISSUE. WE WILL NOT RUN IN THUNDER, LIGHTNING OR EXTREME TEMPERATURES, HOT OR COLD.

 

6. WHAT IF I CANNOT RUN THE WHOLE THING?

YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO FAST, YOU JUST HAVE TO GO. OUR GOAL IS TO GET PARTICIPANTS FROM THE STARTING LINE TO THE FINISH LINE. IT’S YOUR RACE, YOUR PACE. DEPENDING ON YOUR GOAL AND TRAINING PROGRAM, WALKING BREAKS CAN BE INCORPORATED. WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE PARTICIPANTS TO STAY CONSISTENT WITH TRAINING. CONSISTENCY IS KEY TO SUCCESS.

 

7. I LISTEN TO MUSIC WHILE I EXERCISE. CAN I WEAR MY HEADPHONES DURING TRAINING?

ONE OF THE MANY BENEFITS OF GROUP TRAINING IS MEETING OTHERS ALIKE AND MAKING NEW FRIENDS. LEAVE THE HEADPHONES AT HOME, MEET NEW PEOPLE, AND ALSO STAY SAFE. WITH HEADPHONES ON, IT’S DIFFICULT TO HEAR DIRECTIONS OR OTHER SOUNDS.

 

8. IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?

REGISTRATION IS OPEN TO PARTICIPANTS AGES 18 AND UP.

 

9. I'M NOT A RUNNER, OR I USED TO RUN...LIKE, TWENTY YEARS AGO. IS THE 5 MILER PROGRAM FOR ME?

ABSOLUTELY! NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT TO TACKLE NEW GOALS. THE 5 MILER PROGRAM IS A BEGINNER FRIENDLY PROGRAM AIMED TO GRADUALLY BUILD UP ENDURANCE AND DISTANCE. 

NOTE - FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE 5 MILE PROGRAM, PARTICIPANTS MUST BE RUNNING 2 MILES COMFORTABLY AND CONSISTENTLY, TWO TO THREE TIMES A WEEK FOR AT LEAST ONE MONTH PRIOR TO THE START OF THE PROGRAM. 

 

10. HOW DO I REGISTER FOR THE PROGRAM?

SIMPLE! YOU CAN REGISTER ONLINE, DOWNLOAD A REGISTRATION AND MAIL IT IN, OR STOP IN ANY ONE OF OUR CONVENIENT LOCATIONS TO PICK UP A REGISTRATION FORM.

  • FREEHOLD 130 SCHANCK ROAD, UNIT B FREEHOLD, NJ 07728

 

11. WHAT DO I NEED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM?

A “CAN DO” ATTITUDE! BECAUSE WE KNOW YOU CAN DO IT TOO. OUTSIDE OF A POSITIVE ATTITUDE, UPON REGISTERING, PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE A LIST OF ITEMS NEEDED AND RECOMMENDED FOR PARTICIPATION.
