I work in the Wildwood Office Park in Atlanta, GA and would be interested in walking during lunch. Anyone interested?
Hi...Wildwood...is that over near N'side Dr...Powers Ferry right off 285? I am not too far from you. We could do maybe 1-2 miles during lunch on rain free days.
While I was surveying group meetup programs for my business I see that you are just down the street. We are off Windy Hill and 75 near the North x Northwest office park. We are formulating Walking groups using Poles. Sounds crazy, definitely if you are the only one doing it. But the calorie burn to mention only one benifits can convert 1 mile of regualr walking to almost 2. Thats great, right
Take a look at www.balancewalking.com and we will help you kick up your walking a notch and as well likely grow others to particiapte with you in your Active.com portal...
If you are unable, no big deal, just keep moving and the best. IT work or any office work is the largest contributor to the effects of sedentariness.
I work across from Wildwood (in 1300 Parkwood Circle, just behind CVS). I'd love to join the group. I used to practice with a racewalking group, but they got tired of me being too slow. Since getting the left-foot of fellowship, I've gained a lot of weight which I, of course, need to lose. I want to walk with you guys, but will probably fall behind...don't care as long as I can start the walk with you all. Will you be teaching about pole use and where/how to purchase them? Can someone update me on where to meet and what days? I'm open to walking every day as I need all the help I can get. Thanks, guys.
r - call me monday if this meets your schedule @ 770.916.5996. Mean time go to www.balancewalking.com and www.meetup.com @ search in find group - balancewalking and put 30067 zip code for location. I will explain all this when we talk.
Terry, definitely will view the info on Balance & MeetUp and get back to you. Today is Weight Watchers lunchtime meeting in our building so can't do today, but will aim for tomorrow. Will ring you when I know more. Thanks.
Terry, I will definitely be joining the walks beginning April 14th. I will RSVP in MeetUp as soon as possible. But I'm going to make sure the item is on my calendar for the next few weeks so I don't have any excuses. I will call you within the next week & a half to get the necessary details. Looking forward to it.
Hi, Bobbi. Did you find a walking buddy yet? I was following the discussion & was talking back to Walking Poles instead of you. I decided to join his group. What did you decide?
Rich I will be in Florida training new coaches and walk leaders, while on vacation down there thru the 10th. Be back here for the Wednesday the 14th to hold the Balance Walking Meetup. I will be setting up multiple locations to include North X Northwest Office Park near 75 & Windy Hill. If we gain momentum over in the Wildwood Office Park I will also set up a meetup. We will give access as each area grows to have asst. organizers whom can access the Meetup site and have control of scheuling and location.
We will be duplicating this intial beta format now in its 3rd month throughout the US and Canada. In many different venues - corporations, organizations, neighborhoods and schools. Lots going on that you will by our exposure, build more interest locally for everyone indivudally as everyone is looking to be in community to connect to walk and talk...
With our partnership with Susan G Komen and our commitment to develop grasroots walkers yo can imagine how quickly things will go from no one using poles to a common method of sustaining fitness and health.
Anyhow look forward to speaking with you
Look 4ward to speaking with u between 10th & 14th. Enjoy Florida...especially if u can get 2 the beach.
