USA FIT Cypress members are just like you. Most get involved because they know it’s time to finally get in shape, and for many, that means doing something really different in their lives. They know they have to challenge themselves to step beyond the status quo, because without some accountability and guidance, their efforts might fall flat. Some of our participants are new to running or walking, while others have been doing this for quite some time. But no matter what the individual stories, all share one goal: to get fit and have fun doing it.
When someone completes their first marathon, half marathon, 5k, the experience is so powerful that they carry it with them for the rest of their lives. The physical and psychological benefits gained from this intensive training are truly remarkable. Here at Cypress Fit, our goal is to safely bring these benefits to as many people as possible, including couch potatoes, Boston-qualifying athletes, and everybody in between.
The program is simple, but powerful. Over a 12-28 week season, through safe and steady coaching, members progress from little or no running base to race condition. Members follow our carefully developed training schedule during the week, with group trainings on Tuesdays and Thursdays, then on Saturdays, the group meets for their ability-based long run or walk. These group meetings are great for lots of reasons. First, they’re a good chance to share the challenges and joys of training with others who are going through the same thing. Second, the weekly group meetings are important because members can discuss with seasoned members or take part in educational seminars on running or walking-specific topics that round out their training with essential, practical, and strategic information. Our emphasis is on safety and achievement, and we find that often, these meetings represent the beginning of many lifelong friendships. We hope you’ll join us.
