Yes! Many of our participants and coaches are not mothers. Many claim their only children have fur and four legs! We welcome all women, all ages and all fitness levels.
Yes, of course! We aim for convenience for busy women, whether your child care fell through or you want to spend time with your kiddos at class. You may bring them in a jogging stroller or alongside you on a bike or rollerblades, at your discretion. Their safety (including keeping them out of the way of other participants) remains 100% your responsibility
No way! We have participants of all ages, including many between 55 and 70+. One of the program’s greatest assets is its ability to help forge friendships among women at all life stages.
Please review our health history questionnaire and contact your franchise owner with any questions. We recommend obtaining a physician’s approval if you have one or more of the specific conditions listed on this form, or if you have any concerns regarding your medical history and whether this program is a fit for you.
The best thing you can do is to simply increase your overall activity level. Regular walking is helpful. If you’re a beginner, we recommend no running prior to the start of class so that we can provide you with the best possible chance at an injury-free start.
Although different levels follow different workout routines, we accommodate all levels together (as part of one class) due to our excellent coaching staff. No need to separate teammates and friends from one another! The more the merrier on the trails; this increases the chance for women to have others at a similar pace for the workouts.
Walking programs are available in select locations based on demand. If done in a challenging way, walking provides a significant workout. Walkers can choose to follow the intervals of the beginning or intermediate runners depending on their conditioning levels.
It’s easy for long-time runners to get stuck in a steady-pace cardio routine. This results in less impact on our cardiovascular conditioning and metabolic rate. We incorporate speed intervals to improve fat-burning power and challenge toward faster times and increased endurance. We keep the program interesting with variety that will push your limits and keep you working hard, no matter your experience level.
At Moms on the Run, our franchises are independently owned and operated; so cancellation policies and terms may vary. When you purchase a program, the terms and conditions of that particular enrollment plan are outlined as part of the checkout process. You should contact your franchise owner directly to inquire about their policies; use the Locations page to find their contact information.
Expenses, and therefore prices, vary from location to location. Your program registration fee covers the instruction, organization and administration of the program, which includes legal fees, instructors and staff, insurance, administration, technology, shirts, supplies, marketing and facility rental rates (if applicable). Monthly subscription memberships require a 30 day notice for cancellation, and refunds for monthly or flex plans are typically not issued for any reason, including withdrawals due to injury, which are a normal risk associated with physical activity. If you are injured, we encourage you to continue to participate in our walking and strength training as able.
We hope that from your perspective your investment creates commitment, and brings with it motivation, accountability, a structured exercise program, guidance and fun! When life gets hectic or obstacles get in the way, it is all too easy for women to throw in the towel on their exercise program. We will do whatever we can to help this program work for you, such as allowing you to make up classes in other locations or issuing future credits if available.
Yes. Consistent with our vision to help more women lead healthier lives, we strive to assist those who wish to enroll but are facing financial hardships. We work with various sponsors and partners to offer partial and full scholarships. The availability of funds may vary by location. Please contact your local franchise owner for an application.
Full enrollment in more than one location requires full payment to both; however, you may be able to negotiate a deal with the respective franchise owners. If you wish to participate in a makeup class in another city, or try out another location in your area, this is acceptable if the franchise owners mutually agree.
Contact your franchise owner to learn what plan upgrades may be available, or to increase your monthly plan commitment.
Please do! Non-members who sign our liability forms may participate for $15-20 per class depending on the location. Make sure to check with your franchise owner first so they can be prepared for your guest.
We highly recommend getting fitted by a running shoe expert. There is no one “brand” that is best for everyone. Your local specialty store, such as such as TC Running in the Twin Cities, is likely to offer gait analysis and fitting expertise (and sometimes even a discount for Moms on the Run). Ask your franchise owner for a recommendation.
Our monthly plans offer the best value year-round for our loyal members, without needing to re-enroll each season. Monthly plans offer the lowest per-class pricing and include bonus workouts between seasons.
Monthly plans do require 30-day notice and an administrative fee for cancellation, therefore we recommend a flex plan if you are checking us out for the first time. Our flex passes are purchased each season, allowing you to come to class at your convenience during that current season.
Please note the plans and passes offered may vary by location.
We’re so glad you asked! Moms on the Run is a franchise business opportunity. If you know of a woman who is looking to start a part-time business and loves to encourage other women, or if this might be you, we’d love to chat! Learn more at momsontherun.com/franchise.
