USA Fit Philly members are just like you. We each decided one day that we would like to get into better shape, to make new friends, and maybe run a half or whole marathon! Some of us are just starting an exercise program, others have been exercising for a while, and some are Boston Marathon qualifiers. But regardless of the specifics, we all share one common goal - to have fun.
If you want to make new friends, get into the best shape of your life, and maybe even run that marathon you've always dreamed about, or get in great shape, come out and join USA Fit Philly. Ask previous members, this is a non-intimidating environment, and we really do motivate people to get fit, and have fun.
The general format of USA Fit Philly is as follows:
- An organized training run each Saturday morning with a group of runners whose training pace is similar to yours. Each group is designated by a color - Blue / Green, Yellow, Red, or Half Marathon.
- A seminar on training, stretching, nutrition or other related topic each Saturday before our run to help you learn the fundamentals of successfully improving your fitness. The seminars will be held before our run.
- Lots of time for discussion with your color group members and instruction from your coaches each week A schedule of training runs to be completed each week on your own, or if you choose, with other members of your color group.
- Organized weekly speed training sessions once the group has built a sufficient training base to handle speed work safely and comfortably, about 10 weeks into the program.
