Why might you join WOG? The Workout Group provides athletes with a safe and fun environment for running. Each workout is planned with the runners’ goals and abilities in mind. Our workouts are periodized so they build on each other, increasing fitness levels consistently over time.
Who might join WOG? All types of runners with some prior running experience are welcome to join WOG. We have runners training for 5k’s and 50 milers (and everything in between). Most of our athletes come for the workouts but stay because of the incredible group support and the pure joy of running hard with friends.
How might you join WOG? If you would like to give WOG a try, come on out! We like new folks to visit a few times before deciding if WOG is a good fit. Once you have made the commitment, we ask our runners to donate $50 per semester (August-Dec. & January-May). We also offer individual coaching packages and personalized training plans (see individual coaching for more details).
What type of workouts might you do if you join WOG? Our workouts include hill circuits, tempo runs and cruise intervals, longer speedier intervals and shorter repeats. If you are training for a specific event, we will do our best to accommodate your needs and help you build to a peak performance. If you are just starting to get to know your running self, we will encourage you to take your time and build gradually. Running is a fantastic journey and we don’t want you to rush through any part of it
Why is there a fee for WOG? We take this community and our coaching seriously. In order for us to maintain a safe and responsible atmosphere, we require each of our coaches be RRCA certified and insured. In the past we’ve payed for lights. Along with the insurance, these are significant costs, though well worth it. Since we are currently not paying for lights, we have reduced the semester fee from $75 to $50. If we end up paying for lights we will raise the second semester fee back to $75. If you’re curious, none of us make money from WOG. It is a community service that brings us more pride, joy and friendships than revenue.
