Here's to the New YOU! Feliz Actividad & Happy New Year!
Congratulations on your commitment to good health & fitness!
Welcome to Snail Steps 100 Brea/Yorba Linda! The next 12 weeks will be a fun and challenging journey. We look forward to not only teaching you the fundamentals of walking but also providing you the tools to allow you to achieve your walking and fitness goals.
The goal race for our Winter Session is the Coaster Run 5K at Knott's Berry Farm on
Sunday, March 2nd.
Tonight we will go through a 10-15 minute orientation that will include an overview on proper shoes and apparel for walking. The orientation will also include the introduction to our functional warm up process that is also a strength conditioning workout. For a preview of the warm up, visit the Files section on this meetup site. Files section is under the heading "More". The handout used for our warm up is Functional Warm-up.
We will then complete a group 30 minute walk. Please dress ready to workout.
Once we complete our workout, we will go into our cool down and stretch process. Please bring a bottle of water to drink while we are cooling down.
Meet Your Coach!
Kim started with the Running Academy when she signed up for the RA201 Disney Half Marathon 2012 training class. Since then, she has completed 7 half marathons, 1 -8k, 1 - 15K a couple of 10Ks and a number of 5Ks.
Kim is hooked on moving, feeling good and fitness!
She has been married over 40 years, has 3 grown children, and 8 grandchildren that brighten up her life.
Her journey started a few years ago when she was getting close to turning 50 and she noticed she had an extra 70 lbs she was carrying around! That was the moment she knew she had to make a lifestyle change by incorporating activity and good nutrition.
Now that she is 70 lbs. lighter, healthier, and happier, she is excited to pass on her experience and knowledge to the future Snails Steppers!
Kim feels one of the great aspects of being a runner or a walker is being
able to enjoy your surroundings, good company, and a beautiful environment, all while becoming healthier each step of the way!l
She is excited to start this part of the journey with Snails Steps, it is not only good for you but exciting also!
