Thursday on Lubbock's First News, Paul Faulkner and Jonathan Botros of Lubbock Fit joined Rob Snyder and Laura Mac to talk about their organization's health and fitness coaching for area citizens.

Lubbock Fit offers training for full and half marathons as well as 5k and 10k runs and walks, training and assistance for general fitness and staying in shape, as well as organizing local runs and events. Part of the group's appeal is being part of a diverse group, and keeping each other accountable and motivated in training.

On the motivation and support aspect of their group, Botros said,

Getting out there by yourself is tough, and we know that, and so that's what we think is one of the nicest parts of the program is those Saturday morning group efforts.

More information for Lubbock Fit is available on their website or their Facebook page.
