1. Couch to 5K
For many, the biggest struggle when it comes to getting healthy and fit is merely getting off the couch. And for years, the creators of the Couch to 5K (C25K) program have geared workouts geared toward that very struggle.
The original program was created in 1996 by Josh Clark after he discovered a passion for running and wanted others from all fitness levels to experience the same joy. In his program, he has been able to help thousands of people move from the couch to the 5K finish line, after spending only 20 to 30 minutes per day, three times a week, for nine weeks.
