Have you ever wanted to start running but not sure how to get started? Now, with 30 Day Breakaway, you can add running to your lifestyle in just 30 days.
For the first time, Beachbody created a fitness program that you can do outside. With 30 Day Breakaway, you’ll build a strong, lean physique while building your stamina to complete a 5K. The 5K may be an actual running race or just doing a 5K around your neighborhood.
Either way, you can improve your running capacity, technique, and overall strength and conditioning.
What is 30 Day Breakaway?
30 Day Breakaway is a running and resistance-training program. It’s designed for you to get fast results and be able to complete a 5K by day 30.
You’ll use weights to build lean muscle and then go outside for runs with expert trainer, Idalis. She’ll guide you every step of the way!
The unique combination of resistance training and running will help you burn fat while building endurance, strength, and speed.
According to Super Trainer Idalis Velazquez, “The program is designed to be accessible for beginners, yet challenges even the most experienced runners. 30 Day Breakaway offers different calendars depending on your level of fitness, running experience, and the time you have.
Everyone will improve their running capacity, technique, and overall strength and conditioning. New runners will be able to run their first 5k, while experienced runners will improve upon their personal best records and their running pace and speed in longer races.”
What are the Workouts in 30 Day Breakaway?
6 days per week, you’ll spend 20 to 45 minutes doing a mix of running and resistance training.
The 30 Day Breakaway Calendar is geared toward new runners who want to get comfortable with consistent runs and eventually complete a 5K.
You’ll start with three walks or runs a week and progressively build up to five, all while lifting on certain days to help build lean muscle that will help power your runs.
You can also follow two other digital calendar options:
- The Advanced Runners Calendar is for people who love to run already or want to step up their commitment by pairing runs with a lifting routine 5 days a week for all 30 days.
- The Time Crunch Calendar is for people on a tight schedule. It lets you choose either a run or lifting routine for the day and finish your workout within 30 minutes.
The weightlifting sessions will either target certain areas or work your entire body.
Then comes your chance to break away and take it outside — grab your phone and listen to Idalis’ cues on the Beachbody On Demand app as you work up a sweat.
You’ll do different types of running (or walking) workouts using your rate of perceived exertion (RPE) — from moderate, steady-state efforts to speedwork — to help your body adapt and progress quickly.
On days when you can’t take your runs outside, you can do the Rainy Day Cardio routine instead.
I can’t wait to get started! After taking a hiatus from running, 30 Day Breakaway is the perfect Beachbody fitness program to get back into it!

You’ll be doing some resistance training and running. Here’s what you need:
- Set of light, medium, and heavy dumbbells
- Beachbody Resistance Loops
- Foam roller
- Don’t forget! You’ll also need a good pair of running shoes to get your runs started right.
