Our non-profit is about training the hearts and minds of our youth. We strive to focus on a part of athletics that is often neglected: giving back. It is always a great feeling to receive, but we want to instill in our young athletes the reward one receives by giving, caring, and sharing.
Track Fit’s founder, Antoinette Wilks, migrated to Florida from Jamaica at age nine. She grew up in a single parent home and found it difficult to establish meaningful relationships as a result of her parent constantly moving.
A faithful encounter with the man who would profoundly impact her destiny, altered the trajectory of her life. She was a freshman at Palm Beach Lakes and that man was Jerome Groover, the school’s track coach. With his guidance and mentoring, Antoinette would eventually earn a four-year track scholarship to the University of South Carolina. While there, she would become a three-time collegiate All-American and captain of the University’s first National Championship team. Her talents would eventually earn her the right to compete in the U.S. Olympic trials but injury would prevent her from ultimately competing in the Olympics.
Although Antoinette’s athletic achievements are impressive, she considers them secondary to the mentoring provided by her high school coach. His effort, and the effect it had on her life, would lead her to establish Track Fit. The vision was simple; provide young athletes with the tools necessary to be productive members of society by fostering a culture that held them accountable, taught them responsibility, and provided the skills necessary to be productive members of society. Programs such as wellness and stress management, fundamental training camps and team building are cornerstones missions of Track Fit Corp.

Our motto is "We can work together!" We believe our young athletes are future superstars, and we strive to inspire them to grow as individuals and give back to their communities. We accomplish this by providing our kids with business skills, instilling the motivation to stay active in their communities, and supporting them so they are able to grow and give back.
