LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The Blue Cross Winter Warm Up is underway.

People have been "warming up" while training for the Blue Cross Winter Warmup 5k Celebration.

The program entailed two weekly one-hour sessions with certified Good Form Running and Walking coaches from the Playmakers Fitness Foundation.

Those participating also received weekly communication with trainers as well as nutrition tips.

In all, there are 15 instructional sessions that lead up to the goal event of the Winter Warm Up 5K walk/run on March 25.

This program was open to all ages and abilities and was a fun way to make those fitness goals a reality for the new year.
