Welcome! Thanks for your interest in learning more about the first ever, all-inclusive 10-week marathon training program.
If you’re considering training for a marathon, you’ve come to the right place. This marathon program is a culmination of more than 10 years of research, during which, our team spent hundreds of hours analyzing different athletes, coaches, and training courses.
Using a meticulous and painstaking process, we identified the workouts and specific elements that consistently yielded great results when running a marathon.
We then fused these handpicked components together to create a universal package for runners of all levels… a logical and successful way of training for a marathon in the shortest amount of time possible.
Like the marathon program itself, our goal is simple: to give you a running program that will help you go from running a few miles a day to completing 26.2 miles—within just 10 weeks. Our aim is to assist would-be marathon runners around the world in reaching the finish line without letting the quest consume their lives.
In this DVD, one of our coaches will teach, train, and inspire you—day by day, simple step by simple step. He will also provide other valuable information on training for a marathon: tips on shoes, stretching, avoiding injuries, diet, race day, motivation, and more.
Think of this program as your personal trainer. Consider this your one-stop shop for comprehensive marathon information and preparation.
There are many ways of training for a marathon. But the following four elements make this marathon program unique:
1. One-Stop Marathon Training
Running a marathon is a life-changing accomplishment achieved by less than 1% of the human population. And while the payoff is tremendous, it is also an enormous undertaking that requires hard work and dedication.
We know, because we’re runners ourselves. As such, we feel strongly that figuring out how to train for a marathon should be the simple part. This is why we’ve spent years compiling this program: We’ve isolated the aspects that work best, fastest, and affect your time most significantly and put them in one place.
We know it’s easy to make excuses; so we’ve done the work for you. All you have to do is follow along, then put one foot in front of the other.
We’re proud to be the only all-inclusive marathon training DVD available. Unlike other running programs that focus on one aspect or another, this training program gives you everything you need to complete a marathon… whether it’s your first marathon, fourth, or fortieth.
Moreover, we’ve made each section short, simple, and interesting. We answer your questions without tangents. We give you the most important information on training for a marathon quickly, concisely, and without putting you to sleep.
2. Shortened Time Commitment
Many people dismiss their dream of running their first marathon because of the perceived time commitment.
In fact, up until now, training for a marathon has traditionally taken the better part of six months to a year. For people with families, fulltime jobs, and other responsibilities (i.e. most of us), devoting a year or more of your life to a running program is not practical.
Because of this, one of our primary motivations was to create a shorter, completely stripped-down training schedule that would let you live your normal life as you learned how to run a marathon. The resulting regimen is just 10 weeks… the shortest marathon program of its kind and approximately 37% shorter than the average running program.
3. Simple Steps for All Levels
Our research process means you will have access to the same workouts and tips used by some of the top long-distance runners in the U.S.
However, we also spent a great deal of time studying people of all ages, degrees of experience, and skill levels. Unlike programs that assume you are an advanced runner, our philosophies will work for anyone with an interest in running a marathon.
The DVD is broken down into short sections and uses simple terms that even those running their first marathon can understand. Essentially, we explain how to run a marathon: what you need to do and why it’s important.
4. Positive Lifestyle Change
The 10-Week Marathon Training Program is more than just a blueprint for better marathon training. “Embrace the Challenge” is our theme throughout, because we want you to experience the race for more than the running aspect alone.
Therefore, our focus includes positive lifestyle change. Should you choose to take advantage, the marathon program outlines participating in community service, letter-writing as a positivity tool, and improving the quality of your life and the lives of others.
To show our support for running a marathon as an inner- and outer-strength-building tool, 10% of our profits go to Back on My Feet (BOMF), a nonprofit organization aimed at helping the homeless gain confidence and skills through running (www.backonmyfeet.org).
