What we're about

This group is for you to get fit, more healthy, make friends while walking.

My name is Marigold. I started a local walking group to keep active and fit. I realized others could benefit from this so decided to share with more people that is how this group got started.

Walking for Fitness and Fun is for you if you want to keep fit, meet new friends and get the support of others to keep going with your fitness objectives.

Walking for Fitness and Fun is for different fitness levels. It's for you if you're interested in the outdoors, exercise, meeting new people, reconnecting with nature and having fun.

Our walks and hikes are in the metro Atlanta area particularly in the West, North West and South West areas.

To keep things simple you are responsible for your own health and safety and not the organizers or event hosts.

We walk as a group for approximately 1 to 2 hours which can be 1-5 miles in distance depending on the terrain e.g. parks or nature trails.

Please wear good walking shoes, and drink water before and after walks. You might also like to bring with you a light weight backpack, a facecloth or small towel (for warm days) and a bottle of water.

Feel free to invite friends and family on walks. Please update your RSVPs if your plans change as we have a two 'no shows' policy.

Looking forward to having you join us on some fun walks.

Lets keep fit and drop weight with, an evening walk at Arbor Place Mall

Please ONLY RSVP 'yes' if you are 100% sure you can attend (two no show policy). We are back at Arbor Place Mall for our Thursday evening challenge and a chance to maintain your fitness routine. Remember the best way to start a new good habit is to BEGIN! We'll meet at the meeting point at 7:00 pm (prompt). There is ample free parking. Please wear good walking shoes, and drink water before and after the walk. You might also like to bring with you a light-weight backpack, a facecloth or small towel (warm days), a bottle of water and a snack bar in case you need an energy boost. We will walk for approximately 1 hour which will be approximately 3 miles in distance. Please ONLY RSVP 'yes' if you are 100% sure you can attend. If you are not 100% sure please delay doing your RSVP until the day of the event. High percentage of dropout from an event can have the effect of killing off an otherwise vibrant group so your cooperation with this is greatly appreciated. Let's keep this group vibrant. If your plans change please do update your RSVP as we have a two 'no shows' policy. Look forward to seeing everyone and for a fun walk.

Hi Walkers! If there is a place/venue nearby where you live that you would like to walk in but haven't seen it posted yet you can host a walk there yourself. There may be other group members nearby that will be happy to join you on the walk. Just post the walk on the 'suggest a meetup' tab and I will post it on the site. Please include the venue address, meeting point, time and date. Happy walking Marigold
