Welcome to SacFit!

The fun running and walking club!

 Sacfit is the largest and, many would say, the most fun and social training group in the Sacramento region. We are also the only group that has coaches who actually work out with you and our support is second to none!

When you add in our innovative training techniques that are tailored to each member’s fitness, ability, and goals (and our 99% success rate in helping members achieve their respective goals – for 19 years straight), it’s easy to see how we have earned the distinction as the premiere running and walking club in the area.

Whether you’re a seasoned runner looking to qualify for Boston, or a couch potato ready to take that first step toward better fitness,  or anywhere in between, we have a training program just for you!
