Run Club Revisited
April 30, 2019
Run Club is back, and better than ever! This season, we will continue our Wednesday night runs out of our Brooklyn club, which are open to all Chelsea Piers Fitness members, and add on monthly long runs that start and finish all around the city that are open to the public.
WEDNESDAY NIGHT RUNS Chelsea Piers Fitness members only
WHEN: 6:30pm, Wednesdays
WHERE: Meet in the lobby of Chelsea Piers Fitness Brooklyn located at 265 Schermerhorn Street.
RSVP: Members may register in the app for these weekly runs.
Our Wednesday runs will focus on interval work outs that will get you out of your comfort zone and increase your speed, strength, aerobic foundation and overall performance. Interval training will burn fat cells and decrease the risk of injury as you open up your stride and get moving.
ROUTES AND TRAINING PLANS:
We will run all throughout North Brooklyn, rotating through the below three types of workouts.
- Interval Workout: Fast, short intervals.
- Hill Work.
- Threshold Workout: Longer, steady intervals, tempo paced or “race” pace.
SATURDAY MONTHLY LONG RUNS Members and Open to the Public
WHEN: Saturdays once per month.
WHERE: Routes start and finish all around the city.
RSVP: Members and non-members may RSVP on Eventbrite.
Our Saturday runs will focus on longer distances in order to increase cardiovascular strength, endurance, build lean muscle, and work on some mental toughness. You will burn a lot of calories while running at a conversational pace and meeting new people that enjoy the same form of exercise as you. Runs will average 6 miles.
