While I can provide the basic tools ( 5k training schedule, series of stretching exercises, training logs, etc.) that have worked for me in my 6 years of developing and coaching Fit Girls here in Medfield, I think it is important to allow room for adjusting and adapting in order for each coach to add their personal touch and flair and create a program that works best for them and the girls they serve. Because of Judith’s background in personal training, she added strength training to her program as she had the girls doing sit-ups and lunges. Yoga gurus might include Sun Salutations and the more literature loving coaches may arrange a group run to the local library. And adding elements that are personally meaningful will increase the fun factor for both the coach and their team of girls.
So Lindsey and Whitney, Welcome to the Fit Girls Family! I look forward to logging miles, recommending great book titles and sharing thoughts on health and fitness with you and your team of girls.
