East Bay Fit About

About the Training

Even if you’ve never run a step before, training with USA Fit East Bay will help you conquer mental and physical barriers you never thought possible. It happens all the time. We start wherever you are. Couch potato? Seasoned marathoner? Great. No matter what your conditioning or pace, there will be others to train with. Over the course of 20 weeks, our coaches will help you achieve your personal best in a non-intimidating, fun, and safe environment. We meet Saturday mornings in a variety of East Bay locations from Lafayette to Livermore along the 24/680 corridor. Our Spring 2020 training program begins Saturday March 7th at 8am at Osage Park in Danville. This 20 week training program will prepare you for the San Francisco Marathon held on July 26th, or you can run another summer race.  Or just run with us for fun, fitness, and friendships.  Register online now or in person on March 7th.  Run with us to make new friends, and change your life!
USA FIT East Bay 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, 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.

20 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.

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.
