How are Beat Intervals different?

 

Beat Interval Run Training uses technology to allow all runners to connect to the same workout track that has been tailored to the intervals. So fast paces are paired with upbeat music while recovery is done to slower music. Similar to indoor workout classes.

 

The music also has audio from the Run Leader throughout the workout guiding you through the workout. Think about how a spin instructor guides you through a spin class. This audio encourages you through the workout and reminds you about run form, duration and effort level.

The route is a loop, so no one gets left behind. This workout is great for all levels because you get to choose your effort level or how fast your paces are. In addition, because of the technology, we can space out around the loop so you can see the other runners, but maintain a safe social distance.

Beat Intervals are a fun outdoor way to get good exercise, listen to great music and be around like minded people. Come out and try it with us.
