Benefits:  As a member of Get Fit, you’ll receive training schedules with suggested workouts each week for numerous target races.  Typically, for the run & walk groups - these consist of 3-4 runs per week, with the option of strength and cross training on those or other days.  For the triathlon group they typically consist of 3 runs per week, 3 bike rides per week and 3 swims per week - This workouts are provided within your own training peaks account so our coaches can monitor your training and progression.  There is no requirement to complete all of these workouts with Get Fit –we have many members from across town who enjoy the benefits of our group & train on their own!  Members receive a technical Get Fit Atlanta tee, Emergency ID Shoe tag, Safety Reflective Vest, training plans for many target races, social events, a fantastic lineup of educational and informative seminars, partner & sponsor discounts (we are still adding to the list of partners!) - discounted entry to many group races, exclusive access to our member only on-line discussion forums, and more.

 

The Cobb group has long runs on Saturdays near and on the Silver Comet trail during the summers.  It is a perfect place to train in the summers for marathons/half marathons—shaded and generally pretty flat.  For a change of scenery and training stimulus, in the winter, we move our runs around town—Buckhead, Midtown, Grant Park, Decatur, Kennesaw, even Alpharetta. 

- Come learn how 2 of our members who started in the walking group a few years ago just completed the Boston Marathon & how another member maintains a 100 pound weight loss - Get Fit Changes LIVES!  Join us this weekend!!!

 

Training Locations:  We have many “opportunities” each week to train with other members of Get Fit—Monday nite intervals in Smyrna, (when scheduled), Tuesday night in Buckhead, Thursday night Downtown and in Kennesaw, and our long runs on Saturday and Kennesaw on Sunday. Triathlon group Swims & clinics (with certified Swim instructors) are posted before season starts in various locations around town, Group Bike rides vary on Monday nights from spin classes on trainers to Kennesaw Mountain repeats - Thursday night Bricks on Silver Comet Trail off the East West Connector, & Long rides are in various locations on Sundays.  Group open water swims and all clinics posted monthly!  In addition to these “official” practices , you’ll find that people post to our members only forum seeking partners to train with at alternative times.
