    One Mile

    Transformation Race

    This race is unlike any you’ve done before  

    What:   A timed, one-mile race

    happening twice (“before”

    and “after” races on May 13th and June 17th).

    Includes a guided training and nutrition program.

    Why: The best way to transform

    your body (burn fat and build

    lean muscle) is to combine

    with strength training and

    key clean eating strategies.

    By training for a mile utilizing speed training, strength training and fat-burning nutrition you will access the hormonal stimuli needed for a lean, fit physique.  

    When:   May 13th - June 17th

    Training sessions meet every Monday 5:30-6:15pm and Saturdays 9-9:45am

    Sessions are led by Carrie Bennett, MS ACN and certified personal trainer
