Kick off this winter with MSU Moves Couch-to-5K Program!

The holidays are a season of friends, family and food, followed by New Year’s resolutions, often centered around health and fitness. MSU wants to see you succeed in every aspect of your life, and Health4U is here to help make that happen.

MSU Moves is a facet of the Health4U program that promotes healthy movement throughout campus whether it is walking, running, swimming, dancing, twirling, wheeling, skating or cycling – they want to help you move. This winter, MSU Moves is introducing a new program with Playmakers called Couch-to-5K on campus!

This program promotes having fun getting fit with the Blue Cross® Winter Warm Up. Participants will meet up with friends and family and join in on this great way to meet their 2018 health goals! The 5K training program is free and open to all ages and abilities (a parent or their designee must accompany children).

This eight-week training program involves attending two weekly one-hour sessions with certified Good Form Running and Walking coaches from the Playmakers Fitness Foundation. In addition, participants will receive weekly communications with training and nutrition tips and information.

Training sites include Charlotte, Delhi Twp/Holt, Delta Twp/Lansing Mall, Dewitt, Lansing, East Lansing, Michigan State University (on campus) and St. Johns. Most sessions will be outdoors, so remember to dress in layers! The 15 instructional sessions will culminate with the free Blue Cross Winter Warm Up 5K walk/run and celebration at Hawk Island in Lansing on Sunday, March 25, 2018.
