Endurance Magazine - Best Charity Training Team in the Triangle

Team Fit & Able brings USATF Certified Coaches together with athletes that want to accelerate their training while having fun reaching their goals.  We adhere to USATF's principle goals to encourage and facilitate our youth to develop physically through team practices and meets, emotionally through growth and positive self-image, and socially through development of friendships and interaction with positive role models. Weekly practices are designed to help athletes set and reach personal goals in both track and field events. 

Race Entries: All Team Fit & Able members will have discounted registration for Fit & Able-owned athletic events. Discount codes will be provided by email and may only be used by registered team members.
