What are the
WE CAN Warriors
Building Community through Fitness
Group Training Where Everyone Wins
The Wellness Movement™ WE CAN Warriors™ Training Programs began in Santa Barbara, CA, and is now offered nation-wide. They are group training programs that prepare participants for specific races and events. Groups are organized and facilitated by motivated and caring local coaches. Program length varies depending on the specific race or event but generally run from 8-16 weeks. We offer programs for various types of events such as running (both road and trail), cycling, multisport (triathlon or other), urban or trail fitness hiking, and more. Specific program registration is done through your local coach and you can find upcoming programs and coaches in your area by visiting our Find a Program page.
What stands out most about these groups is not only the motivation and warm accountability that naturally comes from being around other motivated individuals, but also the unique connection that comes from training together and working toward a common goal. Ultimately it provides a way to join a community of active people who care about you and to reach goals you otherwise thought were unattainable.
Participants of all Levels of Ability Benefit
The Wellness Movement™ WE CAN Warriors™ Training Programs were created to benefit everyone. From a high level athlete looking to set new personal records, to those who need motivation to set and reach a goal for the first time. Programs that train for running events also work well for folks interested in walking or hiking. Training plans are individualized to cater to current fitness levels and goals. Everyone works at their own pace while having fun with their fellow team mates.
