Fit & Able Productions is a Cary-based non-profit that serves area youths and families in competitive and recreational sports. Our Spring season training program is the Triangle Track Team focusing primarily on running and conditioning. Kids of all ages and skill levels are welcome to participate, and parents too! Team Fit & Able is a USATF sanctioned club and USATF membership is required to join the team.
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.
