Introducing the BEST all-women’s training program in Portland for ALL abilities of runners and walkers! Whether you are a woman just trying to start to get active again or you are looking to improve upon your existing fitness, the Foot Traffic Women’s Academy is for YOU!  Women of all abilities and ages will be represented in the program and joined by “pace mentors” and coaches for all paces. The program emphasizes developing lifelong running and walking habits, while also helping women meet performance goals. The women’s training program partners with local businesses, fitness professionals, dieticians and physical therapists to help members navigate the world of fitness. With an overall “wellness” focus, this training program goes beyond simply training for a particular event and is a great opportunity to meet with like-minded women to start or maintain a healthy lifestyle. The weekly weekend meetings include tips and discussions from dieticians, trainers, physical therapists, and representatives in the footwear, apparel, and accessory industry.

The women’s training Academy serves all levels and abilities starting at age 18 and up to seniors and will have motivating mentors of all ages and running and walking backgrounds. Membership includes a free super-cute women’s specific shirt, professional coaching both for runners and walkers, tons of free gear and exclusive discounts on related gear, organized weekly meetings, as well as weekly schedules delivered via email for each pace group’s specific workout to do on your own. What really separates this program from any other is the unparalleled camaraderie of an all-women’s environment discussing topics and issues of the utmost importance to women of all ages. We can’t wait to see you there, so register now and bring a friend! Sincerely, The crew at FTWA

I can't make the first meeting or I may miss some workouts or even the goal event. Is that a problem?
Where and when does this program meet?
I have NO idea what pace I am. How do I know what group to join.
I can't run the whole time, but I'd like to try. Is there a jog/walk combo group?
Do I have to attend every meeting? I'll be gone on certain weekends?
Can a friend show up with me the first day to see if they like it and pay afterward?
Are there weekday workout options?
I'd love to find training partners from this group. How do I do that?
My friend has much more/less experience than me. Do we start at the same mileage?
How do I find out what mileage to do each week? How do you contact me?
Are jogging strollers welcome?
