Track Fit’s founder, Antoinette Wilks, migrated to Florida from Jamaica at the age of nine. She grew up in a single parent home. Due to constant relocation, she found it difficult to establish meaningful relationships. Fortunately, as a freshman at Palm Beach Lakes High School, she encountered Coach Jerome Groover, the school’s head track coach. His guidance and mentorship changed the trajectory of her life.
She eventually earned a four-year track scholarship to the University of South Carolina. As a collegiate student-athlete, she became a three-time All-American and captain of the University’s first National Championship team. Her talents eventually earned her the right to compete in the U.S. Olympic Team Trials, but injury ultimately prevented her from competing in the Olympics.
Although the lessons learned through Antoinette’s athletic achievements are significant, she considers them secondary to the prominent impact of the mentoring provided by her high school coach, Coach Jerome Groover. His efforts and the subsequent effects they had on her life led her to establish Track Fit. The mission is as follows: Provide young athletes with the tools necessary to be productive members of society by fostering a culture that holds them accountable and teaches them responsibility.

Programs that focus on College preparation, business presentation, physical fitness, and team building are the cornerstones of Track Fit.
Our non-profit is about training the hearts and minds of our youth. We strive to focus on a part that is often neglected: giving back and relationship building. It is always a great feeling to receive, but we want to instill in our young ones the reward one receives by giving, caring, and sharing as a team.
