Our Coaches


Gulya Chandler

Assistant Coach - Tuesday Workout Coordinator

I joined USA FIT Shreveport in the fall of 2012. Before that I ran a few 5Ks and never thought that I would be able to run a longer distance. Since joining USA FIT I have run about 20 half marathons and 1 full marathon. In the past few years I have been assisting as a coach for the Double Half group and served as the Tuesday workout coordinator.

In the off-season, I love playing tennis in the Shreveport/Bossier area. Besides sports, I like to read, knit, cook, and play piano. I also love to travel and try to incorporate running into my travel plans. One of my greatest memories is running in Paris at night with a local running group there.

To me running helps release everyday stress, clear my head, and have a little social time with friends. For inspiration/motivation, I like to look into Pinterest: “No matter how slow you are, you’re still lapping everyone on the couch”.
