Who We Are: a nationwide training program and running group for women. All paces and levels welcome and encouraged to run. City Fit Girls meets in Chicago, New York City and Washington, D.C. too.
Sorry men, this one is Ladies Only 😉
PROBABLY SOME OF THE MOST fun I’ve ever had running with a group have been with City Fit Girls. This group knows that fitness and running can be a bit monotonous at times so what makes them stand out is their collaboration with a wide range of brands, instructors and personal trainers.
On my first run with CFG, it happened to be their first birthday, or rather, the 1 year anniversary of their conception so we all wore birthday hats and ran 3 miles around the city. Interspersed between each mile was a personal trainer to walk us through a boot camp-type exercise or coach us through a series of pushups.
Sometimes CFG workouts only include a run. Other times brands like Sweetgreen or HoneyGlow sponsor free food for runners after a workout.
ANOTHER WONDERFUL aspect about CFG is that you don’t have to be a seasoned runner or identify as a “runner” at all to join the group. Even if you’ve never really run before or have been injured and are just now getting back into the swing of exercise again, CFG guides you with access to their 12-week training program guides and emails you a newsletter with great running tips every Monday morning.
So do yourself a favor: get out on Wednesday evening (or Saturday morning!) and run with these lovely ladies. The encouragement and supportive environment CFG creates is a very special one indeed.
