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.
