USA Fit Shreveport is a training program for runners of all ability levels, from first timers to experienced athletes, with the goal of completing a marathon or half marathon distance.  Our coaches are devoted to getting you in the best shape of your life in a non-intimidating, fun, and safe environment.  Whether you are a couch-potato, walker, casual jogger, or marathon veteran, this marathon and half marathon training program is the most enjoyable, most inspiring, and most efficient way to get in the best shape of your life.

Upon joining, you will receive day-by-day training schedules, Saturday morning group runs, the latest information on group plans, informational seminars on a variety of fitness topics, and a USA Fit Shreveport technical T-shirt.  You will also be placed in a pace group with runners of similar experience and abilities. For each group, we offer experienced coaches and assistant coaches who will lead the Saturday group runs and answer questions you have about the training schedule.

Ask anyone who has completed their goal of getting in shape or finishing a marathon, and I’m sure they will tell you it has truly changed his/her life. You will feel fitter, happier, and mentally stronger, and all in a short 23 weeks.  USA Fit Shreveport started offering training for the marathon or half marathon distances in 2008. For most of these runners this was their first time to attempt a race of this distance, and many have continued on to run another marathon or half marathon in the years since.

Does just hearing the word marathon make you shake in your shoes? That’s okay, come out and join us anyway. Our participants have various goals ranging from getting in shape to running the full marathon distance. You will have fun and meet other people just like you to exercise with and help you accomplish your fitness goals.

24 weeks isn’t that long a time when you’re among friends all working toward a common goal. But the even greater benefit is what happens when you conquer your own personal challenges. Our members are fitter, happier, and mentally stronger than they’ve ever been before. Through this training, people change their lives forever. Come on and join us!

About Our Parent Company

USA Fit is a marathon and half-marathon training company that focuses on bringing attainable results to the average person. We work with runners and walkers, beginners and experienced marathoners. We believe there is hope for everyone who is willing to put in the effort. Bring us your out of shape, your tired, your sluggish and our coaches will bring them to the finish line.

While we began as a marathon and half-marathon training program, we continue to evolve to meet the needs of our members. We’ve incorporated a variety of training distances and intensities, so as people master one level, there’s always a place to which they can grow. Likewise, we offer walking and Couch-to-5K options to those just starting out with endurance sports.

When we started USA FIT in 1989, marathoning was still considered a fairly extreme sport by many. There was a real need in the running community to teach people — regular folks like you and me — how to train safely and effectively. We wanted to prove that this seemingly insurmountable challenge was within the reach of virtually anyone. So on a whim, two young runners passed out flyers and met at a Houston-area park on Saturday morning. It was in the good company of a gaggle of scared but curious couch potatoes that USA FIT was born.
