  1. Hello Coach Stephanie:)

    I want to start the weekend training program as a beginner for the 5k. I am unsure if I understand the cost. Is there a drop in cost? Do I have to pay $129.00 and then $27.95 monthly? or do I just start out paying $27.95. I am really confused and I know if I get to frustrated I won’t follow through. I am trying my best to ask before giving up on something I truly want and need to do for myself. But I have to be honest change is hard in the beginning. Also, I want to do better without breaking the bank of course!!

    Thank You,
    Tania Cork
    Hope to hear from you soon:)

    1. Hi Tania,

      I’m sorry I didn’t get this sooner. Happy New Year to you! We would love to have you join us at Go WOW and train for your first 5K. The $129 is an initiation fee and covers your one time initiation including the first month. After that there is a 27.95/month charge to continue your membership for as long as you remain a member.

      My phone number is 510 261-8671 if you want to discuss the details. Also feel free to contact me via I do not get to this page and comments very often.

  3. Hi Coach:

    I’d love to join. I’m a 40 year old OUT OF SHAPE (!!) ex runner (many years ago). I live in Berkeley. I’m a little intimidated by all the info., how do I just jump into the waters here?

    Thanks very much,

  4. For the 2012 Training programs, I see the cost is either $199 or $249; if I pick the Couch to Accomplished Training, do I need to add the $129 membership on top of the $249, for a grand total of $378 + 27.95 monthly?
    Please let me know. Thank you. ~ FGC

    1. Hi Fatima,

      Sorry for the delay. We’d love to have you join us. The cost is not including the $129, that is just a different membership, our normal on. The $199 or $249 will not go up. After the training period you will be asked to join full time for the $27.95 per month. You can choose whether you renew or not! Does this help?
