Sacfit provides a whole bunch of great program features to assure you
achieve your fitness goals in a safe, sensible, and fun way. Here are
some facts about our club and program:
- Our program has been running (and
walking!) strong for eight years.
- 99.995% success rate. Out of the
5,000+ we've trained, only 24 did not make their goal on the first try.
This success rate is attributed to our safe and sensible training
all of those 24 got their goal on their second attempt. We don't give
up on you!
- Train with your coach. No matter
what credentials a coach has, if they don't train with you, then what's
the point? All of our coaches train with their pace group for the entire
workout. No other program offer this level of personal attention!
- Make Friends Training Together.
Each weekend, you, your coach, and your pace group of 10-15 teammates
train together. This affords a great social and training atmosphere. So
much so, we've had a number of marriages between members. So you never
you might meet!
- Fully stocked and staffed aid
stations for our longer workouts. Tired of a lonely water jug as your
"aid station?" In addition to our plethora of food and ice-cold
beverages, our stations are theme-based. Nothing like an oasis
of fun, food, and drink to keep you motivated!
- Free family Spring Picnic
breakfast. Free - 'nuff said!
