Couch to 5K

Couch to 5K Wrapped Up for 2019!

Healthier Jupiter’s, in partnership with the Town of Jupiter’s Recreation Department, and Jupiter Medical Center’s Cary Grossman Health & Wellness Center, 9-week Couch to 5K Training Program is all wrapped up for 2019! This program helped individuals to gradually increase their physical activity levels enough to walk or run a 5K (3.1 miles). Our Couch to 5K Training Program trains for the annual Town of Jupiter Turtle Trot the first weekend of May.

The Couch to 5K program was developed as a way for community members to get active and seek fitness in an inclusive and encouraging environment. Over 100 Couch to 5K members joined together for the initial meet up on March 2nd. The program attracted such a diverse group. We had participants just getting started with exercise, some getting back in shape, and families looking for an opportunity to get active together.

Not only did participants receive encouragement from Jupiter Medical Center’s Wellness Center instructors and Healthier Jupiter staff, but they also encouraged and supported each community member as they worked toward their personal health and wellness goals.
