Sweaty Betties Pages

We are a Seattle-based group of women who like to have fun and stay active. We bring women together around health, fun and positivity.

We pride ourselves on being a kind-hearted, social community. Our Betties bond through the shared goal of being healthy and active and place no judgement on age, fitness level or or other petty topics. We are women who support other women regardless of whether they are a fitness novice or an ultra-marathon runner. All women are welcome - as long as they are kind! smile

We have very few rules, but the ones we do have are important to follow and failure to do so may result in being removed from the group:

  • You must be a female (use your real name and photo in your profile).
  • Never flake out on events you’re hosting or RSVP “yes” for. There is no honor in flaking on a workout buddy. (NOTE: we remove members after a third no-show - canceling within 24 hours prior to the event qualifies as a no-show)
  • Don’t use our group to promote your own business, Meetup group, company you work for or anything else that leads to personal gain and makes our group sound “spammy.”
  • Be kind and “pro-women” when interacting with other members.

Our members are responsible for organizing/hosting events, but to do so, here’s what you need to know:

  • Any women who have been a member of Sweaty Betties for at least 2 months and have attended at least 3 events may organize an event with our group. Just click on the “suggested” tab on the front page of our Meetup group then fill out the details for your event. Be sure to include the following:

    • How members can find you at the event location (I usually give a meeting spot and my mobile #).
    • Cost, if applicable.
    • Registration link, if applicable.
    • Any details about the activity to get members excited about it and set expectations.

  • Events should be centered around a physical activity, but also involve a social element. Some activities are themselves social (like hiking), but for any that aren’t (swimming, for example), consider getting tea/drinks afterward so everyone has a chance to make new friends.

  • Always be gracious and welcoming to all the Betties who attend your event and try your best to ensure our introverted members feel included too :)

  • Never flake out on an event your organize or RSVP to (everyone’s time is valuable and it’s incredibly inconsiderate to RSVP to an event and no-show). If you are the organizer for an event and something comes up that prevents you from attending, please contact your group leader to for help finding someone to take your place.

  • We do not allow self-promotion in Sweaty Betties. If you would like to host an event to showcase your own skills/business or a business you work for or stand to profit from in any way, please contact us directly and we can discuss some options for how this might work while still ensuring a high quality, non-spammy experience for our members.

If you would like to to host an event, but need help/pointers please contact one of our event organizers and we’ll be happy to help you!

Thank you!

Hazel Grace and the SB Team
