Our Coaches


Gulya Chandler

Assistant Coach - Tuesday Workout Coordinator

I joined USA FIT/Shreveport in the fall of 2012. Previously I ran a few 5Ks and never thought that I was able to run a longer distance. Since joining USA FIT I have run eleven half-marathons and numerous local 5K and 10Ks.

This year is my sixth season with USA FIT and I am excited to get back on the roads again with this great group.

In the off-season, I love playing tennis around Shreveport/Bossier area. Besides sports, I like to read, knit, cook, and play piano. I also love to travel with my daughter and try to incorporate running in our travel plans. One of my greatest memories is running in Paris at night with the local runners. Currently, I am working on the doctorate and running helps release the stress.

For inspiration/motivation, I like to look into Pinterest: “No matter how slow you are, you’re still lapping everyone on the couch”.
