Workout daily and win $50 UjENA FIT Prize Money weekly!

Bob Anderson, the founder of Runner's World magazine and publisher for 18 years, invites you to join the Bob Anderson's UjENA FIT Club inspiring a fitness revolution one step at a time.  Since running and walking helps you lose weight in less time than almost any other sport, this will be our main focus however all workouts count.   Our club is for people at all levels including serious athletes. 

UjENA FIT Club - Inspiring A Fitness Revolution One Step At A Time

"Our goal is to get and keep as many people FIT as possible and out the door regularly. We want to make fitness as important as brushing your teeth daily. Fitness is a positive addiction with great side effects," says founder Bob Anderson.  "Our key motivational program will be issuing thousands of FIT dollars to members and non-members based on their performance in our selected GO FOR IT! events and posting daily workouts in our FIT Log.  "

The Ujena 5k and Ujena 10k are held at every Ujena Jam.  All models and photographers are required to run or walk.  Over the years many people have said that they got their start in running at one of these events. 

The basic UjENA FIT Club training program we are promoting is to make fitness a daily habit no matter what.  One mile walk, 30 minute bike ride or 30 minutes of yoga counts for your "rest" day.

"I love to eat and because I run or walk 30 miles per week, I can eat just about anything.  However, I stay away from soft drinks and I don't eat deserts," says Bob.  "My weight has been at around 145 pounds for years.  Some of my running is at 9 minutes per mile and some of my 30 weekly miles is walking but  I do try to run hard twice a week.  I run everyday and I can race at under 7 minutes per mile for 13 miles.  I am 63." 

You can do it too! Let us show you how even if you have never run a step in your life.

Maybe you are already addicted to fitness? Or you want to experience the FIT feeling for the first time? In either case, we want you to join us. As a group we can make a difference. 

UjENA FIT Prize money will give special recognition to help people stay motivated and inspired.  "Sometimes it is the little things that can make a difference and who couldn't use a few extra dollars to help cover some of the costs of getting and staying fit?" Bob Anderson thinks.  "We also will be awarding UjENA FIT Prize money to members who workout daily."

Bob Anderson runs or walk 365 days per year and has been doing so since October 1, 2008. Thirty miles a week works for him and has been doing this since Oct 1, 2008.

"I have found that you don't have to do a lot to run well. The main thing is to run or walk every day. Make it a part of your daily life," says Bob.

"I enjoy training but I love to run races. The races make all my training more complete. To me it would be like writing a book but never publishing it, if I didn't run races. I am currently running at least 25 races per year. I plan them out many months in advance. I like setting goals and going after them. If I don't reach my goal, I just leave that behind and start planning for the next one, " Bob continues.  He is planning on running 50 races in 2012 to celebrate his 50 years of running and racing.

In addition to our unique programs, we will also be offering training ideas and advice to help you reach your goals. The more you know the better. Jump on board and make a difference not only for yourself but help others too

UjENA FIT Club founder has been running and racing for nearly 50 years!

In 2009 he finished in 1:27:53. He runs or walks daily. The 2011 San Jose Half Marathon is a UjENA FIT Club GO FOR IT! event and $1200 of FIT Dollars will be awarded to selected winners.  See the list of age-groups and categories by clicking on Fit $$ Events above.

There are many ways to get FIT and one of the best is running and walking. "I have been running for nearly 50 years and it has allowed me to live a wonderful life," says UjENA FIT Club founder Bob Anderson. "I am looking forward to another 40 or more FIT years ."

He started running at age 13 on Feb 16, 1962. Two years later he ran a half mile on the track in 2:08.5 at the Junior Olympics. In high school he ran cross-country finishing third at a tough Kansas regional meet his senior year. He also ran on the track team and got his mile down to 4:41. When he was not running, he was planning on starting a magazine about the sport he loved. His first issue of Distance Running News (renamed to Runner's World in January 1970) appeared his senior year. The one thousand copies of the magazine have become a collector's item.

"Running is the best exercise for me. I can do it anytime during the day. I can do it by myself or with others. I can run at whatever pace and still gain benefit," Bob continues.

Welcome Marshall Ulrich

The ultimate endurance athlete, Marshall Ulrich has run more than 100 foot races averaging over 125 miles each, completed 12 expedition-length adventure races, and climbed the Seven Summits (including Mt. Everest) all on his first attempts.

But his transcontinental run of more than 3,000 miles proved to be his most challenging effort yet, the equivalent of two marathons and a 10K every day for 52.5 days in 2008.

We are glad to have Marshall with us at the UjENA FIT Club.  "He will be at the San Jose Half Marathon and we are planning in spending some time together," says Bob Anderson.  "He is an amazing athlete and running across the country in 52.5 days is an amazing feat."
