Go from "I hate running" to "I used to hate running" by following our plan

Do you want the benefits that running provides (better fitness, weight loss, more energy, etc.) but tried it and found yourself saying 'I hate running'?  This site is for you.  Running provides more benefits for the time invested than any other exercise we know of.  You can replace an hour of biking or walking with fifteen minutes of running and get better results.  But you already knew that, didn't you?

We have developed a simple to follow system that has successfully converted many 'I hate running guys / gals' into lean, mean running machines.  Well, some are still working on the mean part, but this system works to get you running without saying 'I hate this' in no time at all.  And the best news is that you can accomplish this in as little as one hour a week.

Before you embark on any exercise program, consult your doctor.  This is especially true if you have knee or heart issues.       

We recommend you read the information on the 'No Pain, No Gain, BS!!!' tab first followed by 'The Plan' tab.  The reading is light and the 'I Used To Hate Running' plan will make more sense if you read each tab in order.  If you want a personalized plan with weekly follow up, check out the Personalized Service tab, which also has our contact information.

Good luck to you!

Check out our most recent success story from Laura from Reston, Virginia.

Hello! I am another success story! At least a success story in progress - very slow, but steady progress. I came across your website about 18 months ago. I was walking almost every day, and hit a plateau. But I hated running so what was I do to? I looked at lots of websites about how to start running, and they all had one thing in common - to start running you had to already be able to run a mile, run for 20 minutes, etc. Seriously? If I could do those things I would already be running! I couldn't run 1/2 a block or even 20 seconds! It was very discouraging. In frustration, I googled "I hate running" and your website popped up. I read through it and thought "Well, I can do this - I can run for 5 seconds or 10 seconds or 10 paces." So that is what I did. The first time out, I ran for a total of 45 seconds in 15 second bursts, during a 30 minute walk. A humble start, but a start. Now, 18 months later, I am up to 4 miles of running. I'm not fast, but I'm running. I have done 2 5k's and will run another one in a couple of weeks. I can't say I love running, but I love feeling better, looking better and the feeling of accomplishment I have every time I finish a run. My friends are astonished! And I sing the praises of your website. Thank you for giving me a way to be successful! There may even be a 10k in my future - or maybe a half marathon - who knows?
