weekly training Options
CATAPULT offers weekly training options for Physically Challenged (PC) athletes with mobility and visual impairments. We look to establish a culture of open-access workouts to fuel a lifestyle of health and fitness. Our training aims to give our athletes the tools they need to achieve their goals, while providing a fun and encouraging environment!
CATAPULT also needs assistance from our community in the form of sighted guides. If you have ever wanted to guide, join us at a workout! We encourage all guides to have plenty of practice and interaction with our athletes before race day.
All workouts are weather permitting. Follow CATAPULT on Facebook for updates.
Wednesday - 7PM to 8PM
Saturday - 7:30AM to 9AM
CATAPULT meets every Wednesday evening at the Memorial Park Tennis Center, 1500 East Memorial Loop Drive, Houston, TX 77007. Meeting times are from 7:00PM to 8:00PM.
This workout is designed for PC athletes to get in their weekly training miles, and serve as weekly training for our guides and volunteers!
The Park offers a nearly-400m, asphalt track, directly across the street from the Tennis Center. This is great for speed workouts and drills. The alternative option is the 3-mile running trail of packed dirt and crushed rock. This is the most common choice of our athletes as it is well lit, offers water stops nearly every 3/4 of a mile, and has maintained restrooms as well.
