Build Up to Running a 5K in 5 Weeks With Beachbody's 30 Day Breakaway Running Program


Beachbody now offers the 30 Day Breakaway program, which is its first ever 30-day running challenge. The program utilizes a combination of strength training and running workouts you can do outside or inside on a treadmill with the goal of becoming more fit and healthy and completing a 5K on day 30.

30 Day Breakaway was created by track-and-field athlete and NASM-certified personal trainer Idalis Velazquez and is perfect for beginner or experienced runners, especially for those who don't have access to a gym and want to get back into an exercise routine.

What Does the Beachbody 30 Day Breakaway Program Include?

The program is a mix of running and resistance-training workouts six days a week for five consecutive weeks, so 30 exercise days in total. The workouts are 20 to 45 minutes per day, and there are different types of running workouts from moderate, steady-state efforts to speedwork. You can run outside or on a treadmill, and there's even a rainy-day cardio workout included. Once you sign up, you'll get:

  • Two free sample workouts (one video and one audio run)
  • 20 running workouts (10 video and 10 audio)
  • 10 resistance workouts
  • One indoor cardio workout
  • One stretch and recovery workout
  • Five bonus workouts (runner's warmup, runner's cooldown, endurance intervals audio, progressive buildups walk audio, dropdown recovery walk audio)
  • How to run prep video

The calendar is geared toward beginners, but you can also use the two other calendar options — the advanced runners calendar or the time crunch calendar — depending on your needs and abilities.
