What we're about
Welcome to the Fremont, Union City, Newark (F.U.N.) community of people who refuse to let our weight or size get in the way of living physically active lives.
We're a team! We are NOT a weight loss group nor are we weight loss whiners. We are good health advocates for all sized people. We already know a major key to being healthy is exercise. Doing it together means greater success. You've probably already
experienced that feeling of being the last one to cross the finish line because your weight slowed you down or
missed out on an event because you feared your size would get in the way of doing it.
If this is you, join us. Our bodies will allow us to do what we can and then we will push a little bit harder. We may dance, swim, run, bike, hike, climb, walk, twirl, jump, wiggle, whatever. We may even do some endurance events for charity or personal success. You will not leave any of your teammates behind. Regardless of your speed or ability, you will be there to cheer everyone on until the end!
Regardless of our size, weight, health challenges or speed, we are athletes.
FRIENDS OF PLUS SIZE PEOPLE ARE ALSO WELCOME TO BE A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY. WE'D LOVE TO HAVE YOU AND YOUR ENCOURAGEMENT.
NO FLAKES. You are already an active plus size person or you are a big person ready to be active and be a part of a supportive community. Your RSVP YES to an event means you will show up and be ready to cheer on your teammate as well as be cheered for.
Some events may require membership to a certain gym or group. Or some events may require a registration fee to participate. There will be many events held in free, public locations.
IMPORTANT RULE: Do it! Be active! Have fun! And don't leave a teammate behind.
MOST IMPORTANT RULE: We are friendly. We respect one another, show kindness and compassion regardless of how we are different. We aim to discover what we have in common. If this rule is broken in any way and there is drama, it will be immediate dismissal from the group. NO DRAMA!
This group can only be as active and fun as the team allows. It will take a village to raise it and keep it going. If you'd like to be a leader of this group and co-organize or assist in organizing events, please let me know.
On average, we are a group of 30-50 year old single, married, with or without kids group.
Some events will be dog and/or family friendly.
