Hey, I am 28 years old, I live in the Beaverton/Cedar Hills area. I am looking for a swimming/workout partner to help motivate me. I don't have a gym membership, but I go to the local rec centers

ISO WALK/HIKE/BIKE BUDDY IN UNION STATION/BROADWAY BRIDGE AREA

I am looking for somebody very close to me to walk/hike/bike with, regularly/weekly. I'm saying "very close to me" because if it's convenient to get to each other we'll be more likely to actually get out there & do something. I would like to pick 2-3 days a week & schedule our "buddy time" (Tues/Thurs or M/W/F). We could walk the waterfront, we could do the "Walk There!" walks (I have the book), or easy to moderate hikes @ Forest Park (I have weather-proof maps) or in the Gorge (if you have a vehicle). I am a slow hiker... here are the stats from my most recent hike this past Sunday in the Gorge: 7.78 miles, 3hr 10 min of active walking, 55 minutes stopped, 2263 ft of elevation gain, 2.4 average moving time, 1.8 total speed (including stopping)

I also have a road bike and enjoy the Springwater Corridor because it's easy to get to & relatively flat - great for getting into the swing of things. I am an "A" sometimes "B" rider, so a slow rider. Right now I think I can ride about 15 miles.

My schedule is flexible but I would rather do things at times where we would (1) avoid crowds and (2) beat the heat/not be in the sun at high noon.

I live at the Yards @ Union Station on NW Naito Pkwy near Union Station & the Broadway Bridge & am looking for a nearby SparkBuddy. There's always plenty of parking but it's either metered on Naito or $6 for all day parking at a lot nearby. I'm relatively new to PDX, I've been here about a year. I don't have a car, I use TriMet & Zipcar.

Hey everyone, now that it's nice enough to go hiking I am looking for people to go with! Anyone interested? I usually do half day hikes, but I would be up for anything. I have a small dog I would want to bring, if possible. Message me, or respond please!

I see that this topic has slipped down a little, so i'll bump it a nudge lol. I currently workout at the 24 hr fitness on sunnybrook, and since I work graveyard I am fairly flexible when I can go. If anyone goes by here, and does walking around the general SE area, I would be up for it.

Either you drop that doughnut or we are going to have to grease the doors again!

Another very friendly Meetup group is Mt. Tabor Hikers. We meet Mon & Wed @ 72nd & Hawthorne rain or shine @ 9:15AM to walk for an hour or so. No dogs (allergies), but strollers & kids are welcome. I hope some of you on the east side can join us.

Otherwise, I frequently walk & would love to have some buddies.

Thanks for the other meetup recommendation of Portland Urban Hikers, I'll check them out too!

Welcome to the team Pdxmusic! East/west side, gotta laugh at that. I always say I don't cross the river (I live on the west side) but that's because I rarely drive and I work downtown. There are some great neighborhoods on the east side, I just rarely get there.

nice to meet you! I am in Far SW not exactly metzger, not exactly Tigard, not exactly Lake Oswego. I live right where all of them kinda intersect.
I just moved here from PA a couple of years ago.
I heard that folks from the east side don't get along with folks on the west side. What is that all about?? Someone please explain!

I have no problems traveling anywhere to hang with anyone. East side West side ....
Right now I am looking for some online buddies in the Portland area..
and maybe a meet up with them in the future once I get to know them!

Hello everyone!
I live in NE Portland, and I'm mostly just interested in walking right now. Now that the weather is turning bad, I'm going to be mall-walking at the Lloyd Center. Would anyone like to join me? I was thinking about going in the mornings, but that's negotiable. If you really want to, I can do it later. Strollers are welcome! I don't have any kids, but I think they're cool. The absolute, best time for mall walking is right when the mall opens. There are less people then, so they don't really interfere with your pace. Please send me a sparkmail, or respond on my page.

Hi Bethany, I live right by the Murray Scholls 24 hour fitness and an trying to get back into going frequently enough to make a difference. Im 33 with about 55lbs to lose, 3 kids and stay at home so I also have a pretty open schedule. Let me know if youd be interested in getting together for a work out or 2. I do the zumba and spin classes there but am open to just about anything!

My name is Chelsea, I am 26, and I just moved back to Portland. I could definitely use a workout buddy-my husband's level of fitness is way too intense for me. I live in the SW Hillsdale Neighborhood and belong to 24 hr fitness. I love to walk, ride my bike (though the Portland Hills are tough), and go to the gym for cardio/weight lifting there. I would also love to hang someone who likes to window shop downtown (short on cash right now). I am about to start a full-time job, so evenings/weekends are a must.

I need a workout partner who has a membership at 24 Hour Fitness. I am closest to the Mall 205 location. I swear, I really love working out once I get there. I just want a buddy to help me keep a regular schedule of going.

Thanks a ton!

Oaktree - Studio Blue is AWESOME! It's not the Bar method, mostly Pilates with a little Yoga thrown in for kicks. The instructors and staff are all great. I can't recommend them enough. And the first week's mat classes are free, so you can find out for yourself.
I go to 24 hour fitness - they're not great, but it's cheap and convenient for me (I live about 8 blocks away) any member can get you a free 24 day pass - if you don't know a member and want to send me your email address and name, I'll do it for you. Otherwise you can get a 7 day pass on their website. Those are the only places I've been to locally...

The difference between a successful man and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of courage, but rather, a lack of will.

Hey Zaglyss,

I'm also in NW Portland, and I just joined that 24 hour fitness. I'm also a member at Studio Blue - yoga and Pilates, which is really my main source of exercise, but I'd love to have a gym buddy if you're still interested.

I'd also love to hear from anybody else in the area!

Hi all - I live in SE Portland. Ive been walking the Volkssport 10Ks around the city for the past month. These are mapped walks, but self-paced, and have a checkin start point at usually a hospital or fitness location (REI, Columbia Outlet). Check out the website www.ava.org/

Ive gone on two of the three 10Ks sponsored by the Rose City Roamers already www.ava.org/gen3/data/clubsbystate.a
sp
?EVState=OR
- Definitely a great add to your walking routine, and you get to see different parts of the City!

I plan to continue walking these 10Ks on Saturday mornings. There's usually 2 or 3 of us, so if you would like to walk too - just let me know! Heading over to Sellwood or NW Portland this next Saturday! Sparkmail me if you are interested!

Hi everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in joining me for a water aerobics class @ Matt Dishman Community Center? (It's close in NE Portland, off of MLK). I've been wanting to start up again on Saturday mornings, to add some variety to my weekly workouts, but I haven't yet found the motivation. Maybe a new workout buddy will do the trick! Let me know if you're interested!

Best,
Kim

Hi. I live in S.E. near 70th and Powell. I have a three year old who loves stroller rides! I usually walk about 30-60 minutes on the days it does not rain! If you live close and have a stroller too, lets take a walk!

Oh heyyyy!

So I just moved to Portland, and I hoping to find a workout buddy! I live in the NW Portland/23rd area, so I was looking at maybe getting a membership at 24 Hour Fitness in the Pearl District...anyone close by?

Hey
I'm at PSU also - taking pilates on Tu/Th @ noon, which are the only days I'm on campus this term. My only free time is my "lunch break" around 1p. If your free I would love to meet you - email me. Maybe next term we can schedule a class together.

Don't give up... you can still ride a bike or do aqua workouts. My sister has the same problem and that's what she does. I also just heard about these shoe inserts called "Sole" at REI. you stick them in the oven and then put them in your shoes and the form to your foot. Then you can transfer them to any shoe you want. I think they are around $60.

I am in the Clackamas area. I work by Emanuel hospital. I have a membership to 24 hour fitness and Bally's plus I have work out equipment downstairs. However, I don't use any of them. I had just started to work out when I was diagnosed with plantar fascitis. This means I am not able to do anything on my feet. NO treadmill or stair steppers

I would like a walking buddy in the late afternoons or evenings. I'm in SW Beaverton but actually closer to Tigard at Murray and Scholls. I've been walking by myself for a long time now and I'd love some company! I don't have a gym membership and I recently moved here, so it'd be great to meet someone who knows about locals trails and such.

KARIAG - I walk the 3-mi. loop downtown 2-3 times a week with a co-worker - You are welcome to join us. We walk MWF typically.

Also -- For anyone interested, the PDX Wellness Walkers (www.meetup.com) are walking 2+ mi. tonight at Eastmoreland (meet in the parking lot across from the Eastmoreland Country Club). Walkers leave promptly at 7pm. A group has also been "walking the stairs" at Mt. Tabor the past couple of Tuesdays at 5 pm - A great way to "mix up" your workouts!

We're close enough to walk on the weekends. I don't think I can make it on the weekdays. If you'd like to try a Saturday or Sunday that would be great. The only time I'm not available most weekends is Sunday between 12-5. Let me know.

Hi, my name is Kari and I live in the Tigard/King City/Tualatin area. I belong to the SNAP fitness in Sherwood and am trying to get back into going there as I finally found their website where I can design my workout using their equipment. Currently I workout with my husband but our ideas of working out is not the same (I like being done in like 1.5 hrs he'd be there for 4 if I would stick around that long).

Anyone in SE Portland interested in "walking the stairs" at Mt. Tabor at 7:30 am on Saturdays? I know of a small group that routinely does 3-4 sets of stairs from the Belmont side of the mt. Let me know! It is a great cardio workout!

Hi, I also live in the Milwaukie area, just off Jennings Ave. So it's closer to Gladstone. I like to bike or walk in the evenings after work. And need to set some goals for the weekends to get out and stay active.

I have a lot of weight to lose, I'm not sure where I'm going. But I started at 297 and I'm currently at 240 !! I'm 55 but my Wii Fit age is 39. So I should be able to keep up with you.

If interested in getting together visit my page or email me at fkthriftshop@msn.com

Hi, Im Jory -- I belong to several walking groups in the Portland area that I highly recommend -- There is a fitness level for everyone! I also belong to Ballys and try to fit in a workout there, plus a water aerobics class! I live in the Mt Tabor area, and walk often -- Let me know if you are interested! One of the walking groups I walk with meets regularly at Glendoveer Golf Course for a 2-4 mile walk (whatever you have time for) on Wednesdays at 7 PM (meet at the east end of the parking lot) -- I'll be there tonight, sporting me Sparkpeople t-shirt (getting an early start on "Spread the Spark" weekend) -- Come join us if you can (www.meetup.com - wellness walkers for details) -- Jory

Hello, I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful sunshine we've been having. Wow! I'm a 46 year old woman with over 50 pounds to lose at this point. I would love to find a walking partner. I work in the Gateway area and live east of Gresham, so could do after work walks anywhere in between. Currently, I love walking the Springwater trail from the Main St Park in Gresham. Would love to hear from anyone who is interested in walking. Best wishes!

Hi BETT115! I work out at Hollywood 24hour fitness, but also the pearl for a couple of classes that I really like. Let me know if you still want a buddy! I am a 31 year old grad student, soon to be a full time teacher again. I will need some motivation to keep going to the gym!

PS I don't know how to not post this on the main discussion board....sorry.

Hi there! I am looking for someone interested in socializing through fitness and exercise. I really enjoy being active, and I'd love to have some awesome company when I'm exercising. I'm up for just about anything active: going to the gym (I usually go to the 24 Hour Fitness in the Hollywood district, downtown, or at Mall 205), taking exercise classes, jogging, hiking, playing sports (there are tons of pick-up games right now and during the summer), and more! I'm looking for someone who is fun to be around and who is really committed. I really want to find someone to be healthy with; I'd like to be healthier, and I think having a buddy committed to being healthy and exercising would be great.

A little about me: I am married, 25, and I work full-time for a non-profit. I love cooking, eating, reading, animals, volunteering, learning languages, laughing with friends, and staying active. My favorite t.v. shows are The Office and 30 Rock, and I love the Food Network.

If you're interested in hanging out, staying active and healthy, and having a great time, contact me!

Tennis anyone? I moved to Portland a few months ago and have been searching for a tennis partner. I am not very good but want to try and play more. Who knows maybe I could be good at it someday? I live in North Portland but have a car and would be open to traveling a bit. There are some very nice outdoor courts across the street from my house.
Please spark mail me if you want to know more about me or are interested in playing some tennis!!

HI,

I live in the Gresham area and I am a stay at home mom. I have an 8 month old son and I would love to schedule walks into my week. I will need to bring my baby boy with me. Before having him I was walking 5 times a week, rain or shine but now I need to take his well being into consideration but I NEED to start a routine again. I have a flexible schedule. So if you're at all interested and have a place and time please sparkmail me.

Hello. I live in NW, sort of between forest park and 23rd. Since I moved into this apartment, with no fitness center and a small living room, I have found it harder to keep up with my workouts. I'm thinking of joining a gym, but would need a buddy to actually make it there! I also love to cycle, hike, and I have a TON of exercise DVD's if anybody's interested in that!
