USA FIT Champions is a training program for walkers and runners, of all levels of fitness, designed with the goal in mind of completing a marathon or half marathon in January. Although if your goal is just to come out and walk or run with a fun group and never complete any organized event our program is still the the program for you.

This year we will be training for the Cypress Half Marath0n, Chevron Houston Marathon, the Aramco Half Marathon and the Memorial Hermann USA FIT Marathon and Half Marathon.

Ask anyone who has done it; there is nothing like finishing a marathon or half marathon, even if you have never run or walk a step. You’ll be fit, happy, and mentally strong.
