Greetings! Welcome to the Active Lifestyle Nerds community, the friendliest Meetup group in San Diego. This meetup was designed to bring out your inner-nerd and introduce it to other inner-nerds around your area---with a slight twist. Let’s face it, the average person in a bar, club, or other common area where people socialize, often lacks the level of nerdism needed to have a good Fire Fly conversation or a discussion of “who shot first” (it was definitely Han Solo, folks).

This group is designed for the person that loves technology, Star Wars, comic books, Discovery Channel, the sciences, video games, or just about anything one would consider “geeky”, but not necessarily willing to share it with their friends.

This is especially true for you, ladies--often times the shiest and least willing to admit how into Naruto you really are. We want this to be a community where all “nerds” are accepted and given an opportunity to meet with other like-minded individuals.

Here’s the twist: Let’s break that “Nerd” stereotype and Assemble in non-nerdy locations throughout San Diego and beyond!

Ideally, anyone within the age range of 20-40 would benefit most from this group and overall experience but no one will be turned away!

Come have new adventures and meet new friends at ALN!

Stay active, stay nerdy.

Get Critical Fit with swords!

Allied Gardens Recreation Center

LET'S GET FIT! So, time to get outside for some fun with friends and for some exercise. This meetup will be focused on body weight training, while discussing action plans for everyone to help them reach their fitness goals. We may also discuss nutrition and about taking what you learn at the meetup home with you so you can keep working on your own during the week. This will likely be a monthly meetup, with possible extra meetups as desired. We may branch out for other fitness related events including specific events for discussing nutrition and goal achievement. About Mallory - She is a huge fitness nerd and a self-identified former fat kid who has tried every trick in the book. She's lost 70 lbs on her own, and now fitness has become her passion. She wants to share her knowledge gained on her journey with others and wants to help members get more fit in a way that works for them. Mallory has been doing this fitness group with ALN since April 2017. Join up with Mallory's Critical Fit Facebook Group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/501839656672422/ Parking - Lots of street parking all around and a small parking lot near the park. There is a rec center here, playground and large grassy area. What to bring? - Dress in work out clothes, sweats or something that will allow you to move relatively easily. Jeans are fine if that is all you have. Bring water to drink! Maybe 2-3 bottles if you can. NO EQUIPMENT NECESSARY! If you don't like touching grass, maybe you can bring a yoga mat, but that's up to you.
