Interested in Joining FIT?

Want to get more active ...but not really sure where to start? Well, this is the right place - Canberra's unique fun and FITness group for women of all ages has something to offer you!! If you're not sure, try out 2-3 sessions - swimming, running or cycling, then if you like what we're about - and why wouldn't you? -  join up here. We're pretty sure you'll want to keep getting FIT-ter and having a lot of fun along the way - so just do it!



Females in Training (FIT) is Canberra's unique, not-for-profit community based group for women of all ages & abilities who want to enjoy safe, non-competitive sports training and exercise in a supportive and fun atmosphere.

The group provides training sessions, coaching, advice and occasional social functions for women aged from 18 to 65+. Our main focus is on the three triathlon disciplines of swimming, running and cycling. We have many members in their 40s, 50s and 60s - so don't think you're too old or too unfit to start -- you're not and you won't be alone!

FIT has coaches in swimming, running and cycling who can provide advice and training programs for beginners and novices through to an advanced level - so no experience is necessary to join FIT.

We are particularly interested in providing support for women who are commencing or recommencing their involvement in physical activity - and showing you how much fun it can be as well!

See here for more information on membership. Further information on our regular training sessions for running, cycling and swimming (including water running) is available here
