The Women's Beginning Walking and Running Clinic, Princess Steps, may be what you've been looking for. Whether you want to get into shape, improve your current fitness or simply work on consistency, this is your golden opportunity.
Select from different groups, each one progressing throughout the 12-week clinic. Benefit from the camaraderie and energy of your group and change groups at any time. Get to know others and develop new exercise buddies. Experience how fun walking and running can be and have a wonderful time!
Each week includes a 30-minute fitness talk to help you learn the basics of starting a program and staying injury-free. Following the talk, leaders will guide you and your group through your walk, walk/run or run.
2020 taught us that we can adapt to comply with safety guidelines. It is paramount that participants feel safe and confident. We have successfully executed an in-person/virtual blend. Feedback from 2020 and 2021 participants and leaders was great! Being inside for the 6:15pm talk is ideal for audience participation and enhanced learning. However, since we live-stream the talk on a private Facebook group, attending the talk in-person is optional. Even if you don't do Facebook, you can still view the talk at a later date on YouTube. At 6:45pm, following the talk, the walk/run begins outside.
*** Changing lives since 1998 ***
Spring Clinic * March-April-May

We look forward to continuing the tradition of the GFR Women's Clinic, Princess Steps! Our current format blends years of in-person success and resourcefulness with a modern, virtual element.
Talks - Participants meet in the store for the 30-minute talk before heading outside for the run/walk. We'll continue to live stream the 6:15pm talk on a private GFR Princess Steps Facebook Group so those not present won't miss out. Joining the Facebook Group is required for access to the live presentation. View on your mobile device or desktop.
GFR YouTube - For those not on Facebook, talks will be recorded and viewable on our GFR YouTube within the week.
Facebook Group - This private group becomes active about two weeks before the clinic begins and remains active for about a week or two following the end of the clinic. Pre-registered participants will be able to join prior to the beginning of the clinic. Features and benefits:
Motivational posts by participants and leaders
Staying connected even when it's difficult to workout together
Encouragement and inspiration
Virtual runs and walks
The GFR Princess Steps Facebook Group helps participants and leaders stay connected and accountable while providing motivation and encouragement to stay consistent.
Reading and accepting the rules is required for registrants to be accepted to the Facebook Group.
