Fitness in Recovery

Berkshire Fitness In Recovery

The Berkshire Running Foundation is thrilled to announce the launch of our  Fitness In Recovery (FIR) program, an exciting extension of our ongoing commitment to community health and well-being.


A Collaborative Effort

In partnership with Spectrum Health, local hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and community centers, we’re bringing you a comprehensive health and fitness program designed specifically for individuals in recovery, their dedicated supporters, and loving families.

The Lemme Run Program

At the heart of the FIR program lies the highly effective Lemme Run Program. Over the course of six weeks, participants will embark on a transformative journey with a clear goal in mind: completing a 5K run. But you won’t be doing this alone. Each participant will have the invaluable support of an experienced coach to guide them every step of the way.

Empowerment Beyond Recovery

The FIR program doesn’t stop at the finish line. After successfully completing the program, participants are encouraged to continue their journey by becoming coaches themselves. It’s a beautiful cycle of support, where you’ll pay it forward and inspire others on their path to recovery.

A Proven Global Template

The FIR program structure is not just an idea; it’s a proven and successful template that has made an impact around the world. By incorporating exercise into the recovery journey, participants experience profound improvements in physical well-being, enhanced social engagement, and a higher likelihood of achieving lasting success in their recovery.

Our FIR program provides the following benefits:

  • Personalized Guidance: You’ll have an experienced coach by your side, offering personalized support and motivation.
  • Community Connection: Join a vibrant community of individuals who understand your journey and are there to uplift you.
  • Proven Results: The FIR program is built on a foundation of success stories from individuals just like you.

Take the first step towards a healthier, happier you! If you want to learn more about the FIR program for yourself or a loved one, please contact us today!
