Let us introduce ourselves!

In Motion Fit is a running club born out of a love for the sport of running as well as a desire to live healthy. We have members of all different ability levels; each with different goals. Some of the different reasons our members train are: to run a marathon or half marathon, achieve a goal, lose weight, build strength, get healthy, make new friends, maintain a healthy lifestyle, connect with others, challenge oneself, build a positive mental attitude and much more!

Knowing that our members are diverse in abilities and goals, we have tailored a program that is inclusive to all. Whether you are a marathon maniac or new to the sport altogether, we have a training program that is custom to your needs and goals. Our program is the ultimate blend of specialized training and a fun, welcoming environment for members of all ages.

Here’s how it works…

The Fit program is geared toward running/walking the Tri-City Medical Center Carlsbad Marathon and Half Marathon. You can choose to sign up for the whole year (July 2017 – July 2018) or just until the completion of the Carlsbad race (July 2017 – January 2018). If you aren’t ready to commit to a whole year quite yet, you can upgrade your membership after Carlsbad to keep training with the Fit program. Membership details and prices can be found here.

In order to place you with others who run a similar pace, we use an ability based color group system (see definitions below). We will determine which color group is best for you at the season kick-off orientation in July. You will then receive a custom training schedule from your head coach outlining the schedule for each week, including a group run on Saturdays. For the majority of Saturday group runs, the San Diego group meets at Hospitality Point on Mission Bay and the Carlsbad group meets at the West Inn & Suites in Carlsbad.

ABILITY BASED COLOR GROUPS: (based on training pace)

Yellow Faster than 10-minute-per-mile pace marathoners
Red 10-to-13:44 (marathon course time limit pace) -minute-per-mile pace marathoners
Orange Faster than 12-minute-per-mile pace half marathoners
Green 12-to-15-minute-per-mile pace half marathoners
Purple 15-minute-per-mile-pace and above half marathoners
