Sorry Ladies:  This group is now closed to new members!

About our Group:

This group is for women 40+ (or close to becoming of age:)) all while striving to living a healthier lifestyle surrounded by positive and supportive group of ladies.  Our group participates in both indoor and outdoor activities (i.e. walks, jogs, 5Ks, kayaking, canoeing, camping, biking, swimming, hiking, Zumba, yoga, healthy cooking demos, etc.).  You name it, we're willing to do it w/you, just make it a suggestion.  In my humble opinion there are plenty of women out there who want to become/stay fit, are in need of a friend, a new beginning or a non-judgmental shoulder to lean on.  In essence, an uplifting person who will be there as a friend all while having a good time and easing up on the daily stresses of family life, work, etc. (me being one of them).  In short, a sister-friend.

Here is what you should know before joining:

First and foremost, we're a ZERO drama group of sister-friends.  We wipe our feet at the door (or on the pavement) and leave it all behind.  Our group of ladies are honest, super friendly, supportive and drama free! We are here to uplift one another.  We're respectful of every single woman's thoughts, beliefs, upbringing and views.  In essence, we treat one another as we'd like to be treated. We do not combine events w/other groups.  We support your belonging to other groups as every group fulfills a certain need for us individually.  However, please refrain from combining events. There is an annual $12 membership - prorated at the time of joining.  (If you join in September, you're dues will be $4.00).  This small investment is nothing compared to the friendships and fun times you're about to have.  Dues must be paid w/in 15 days of joining (no refunds issued). For our safety and yours, we ask that you post a picture of you when applying.  We'd love to see your smiling face. If we can't see your smiling face, your request to join our group will be declined. Our group at one point had well over 120 members.  We're down to 45 or so due to inactivity of members or members who didn't feel they had to pay dues.  Please note, members are dropped after two months of inactivity or one month after lack of payment of dues.  We'd much rather have a small group of dedicated sister-friends, than high numbers. We don't leave anyone behind...we walk, jog/laugh/cry TOGETHER.  If you RSVP and are a NO show (and do not text, call or update your RSVP) three times, this group is not for you.  No hard feelings and best of luck w/your search :) Here's what one of our members says about us:

"I am thrilled that this group has attracted so many people who want to be REAL and get to deeper friendships.  The positivity, struggle, inspiration, imperfection, enthusiasm and downright goofiness, etc. etc. you all have shared have made my heart sing!  Y'all are just so open and real and I love it."

"I looooove the ZERO drama.  This group is perfect for me."

"Amazing group of ladies who really want friends - this is not your typical meet up group."

"Feeling blessed to have found this group!  It's been deep, uplifting and FUN."

"I'm so grateful to have found this group and look forward to building great friendships.  What a nice bunch of real, down-to-earth ladies." <br>

Wellness of the mind, spirit and soul are keys to successfully fueling your body to striving for a healthier lifestyle.  I hope you consider joining this great group of ladies. <br>
