Take the Guesswork Out of Running Faster

Traditional pace calculators let you input two variables and will calculate a third for you. For example, if you input your distance and time, it will tell you your pace.

But this won’t help you get faster.

You need to understand the two variables that you have under your control at all times as a runner: running cadence and stride length

Excellent Program. The music, instruction, the upbeat tempo. I loved how it was composed and put together.

What Can ORS Running Workouts Do For You?

Treasure Coast Marathon Podium

There are tons of free downloadable training plans and running apps out there. Some tell you which workouts to do on which days, and others provide motivation and encouragement but little instruction.

What do you actually need to become a better runner?

At Off to a Running Start, we’re all about teaching you how to have fun while running. Because when you understand how to run properly and enjoy doing it, you will thrive as a runner.

With ORS Pro, you’ll be able to access hundreds of on-demand, music-based running workouts, and we’ll release new running workouts and training programs over time, to equip you for every aspect of your running. In fact, you can even request a custom workout! Soon, you’ll be enjoying your running workouts. In other words, you’ll run with less effort and more enjoyment.

Stop wasting your time and money.

Don’t settle for free mobile apps that only tell you when to start walking or running or overpriced ones that simply cheer you on and tell you to keep you going. In addition, free training plans that you download from the Internet don’t actually teach you how to run, as a result you’ll show little improvement. Since these things won’t move the needle for your running, they’re a waste of your time and money.

Get Off to a Running Start Pro today, and start enjoying a lifelong love affair with running.

ORS Frequently Asked Questions

What if I can't run yet–I'm a walker.

ORS has something for everyone, from walkers, to newbie runners, to seasoned pros. In fact, many runners enjoy our walking and walk/run workouts on their “off” or cross-training days. And we have a program that help walkers transition to running.

Can I use a treadmill?

Yes! We have created sessions specifically for treadmills, and many of our other workouts can be used on a treadmill too. You can adjust the speed manually throughout the session, and listen to the workouts through headphones or your phone’s speaker.

Do I need to use headphones?

No, you don’t have to wear headphones to do the workouts, you can use the speaker on your device if you prefer. However, we find that if safety is a concern, having one earbud in and one out works the best, to ensure you can hear the audio guidance and the beat of the music.

I’m already a pro–can you help me?

Of course! Everyone can learn something new by using ORS and the frequent reminders about running with good form help runners of all ability levels. Plus, pro runners can stay motivated with our music soundtracks or challenge themselves with our speed work.
