Mercedes Cimino

Organizer / Full Marathon Coach

I am honored to be part of the USA Fit organization and to have shared in the training journeys of our members since 2004. The time has flown by and it seems like just yesterday that I showed up for my first meeting a little nervous that I was going to be intimidated by hard-core runners. That preconception could not have been farther from the truth. Everyone I have met in association with Phoenix Fit has been friendly and supportive. The coaches are approachable and the members are eager to share their running experience and learn from one another. Until I joined Phoenix Fit I had spent most of my running time solo. I have since come to appreciate the benefits of running with a group. Not only have I learned many tips from coaches and fellow runners, I have made friendships that will last a lifetime.

Dauna Williams

Walking Coach

I joined Phoenix Fit in 2010 as a WALKER! I have never been much of a runner, walking is my preferred choice of exercise. After joining Phoenix Fit, I completed my very first half marathon in 2011! Since then, I have walked numerous half marathons, 5ks and 10ks. One thing you should know about me, is, I am a medal junkie! I will run (I mean walk) for the bling! My personal collection of medals and staying HEALTHY is what motivates me.  I am here for you to begin your journey, rather you are someone who is just getting started with your first 5k or 10k; or you’re ready for the half marathon distance.  I look forward to meeting and walking with you, this season.
