What we're about
Hi, I'm Charlie Hubert and I'm very passionate about achieving the best in health and fitness for myself and others.
I want to feel the very best I can and help others to do the same. I started this walking group to get people in the Berlin, New Britain, Meriden, Newington, Farmington, West Hartford and surrounding areas to come outside and experience the great parks and beautiful countryside that we sometimes forget we have.
Although getting inspired to begin a diet and exercise routine can be easy, sticking with the routine is not when you are going it alone.
Combining your efforts with just one other person—or, better yet, two or three more---lets each person benefit from the inspiration and strength of the group.
You encourage and support each other on the road to fitness and better health plus you have lots of fun socializing along the way.
There is also the great satisfaction that comes along with helping others. As part of a team, inspiring and challenging each other we can make a permanent change in our lives. It’s a winning formula for everyone!
Anyone looking to get outside or get in shape is welcome! This group walks at various parks in the area such as Walnut Hill Park in New Britain, West Hartford Reservoir, several "Rails to Trails" locations, and Newington Mill Pond.
In addition, we add other hikes and walks for one day events for both walking and occasional fun interesting events!
Membership in the group is free!
