Hello Portland Sparkpeople. I am looking for a workout buddy. Someone to help keep me accountable. I am much better at doing things for others than for myself, so having someone count on me to be at the gym will be a huge advantage in helping me reach my fitness goals. I belong to the CRUNCH FITNESS on 122nd and Division. If anyone goes there already or is planning to please get i touch with me if you'd like a workout partner.
Thanks so much,
Do something today that your future self will thank you for!
Strength doesn't come from what you CAN do... It comes from OVERCOMING the things you once thought you couldn't!
This topic hasn't been active but hopefully there is someone out there looking for the same thing. I would really love an exercise buddy/accountability partner.
I am new to the Portland area; living in Lake Oswego. I have been off and on on this journey. I have had a membership at 24hr Fitness but it is expiring this month and am open to other gyms. I find that I do best when I had someone that I was meeting (be it a buddy or trainer).

I don't have a gym membership right now, but I will get one as soon as I decide which to choose. Perhaps you can help? I used to be a member of 24 hour fitness, and actually still am although my membership is on hold right now as I was traveling for work and not using it. I divide my time between a few different locations, and would love some buddies to work out with, outside or inside. I am interested in starting a membership at a gym either in the Pearl/downtown, or in NE (Ideally a gym close to 84/205). I am interested in early morning workouts and/or weekend workouts. I like hiking, cycling, etc. As for the gym, I enjoy all machines both cardio and weights, as well as most of the classes although I am not the most coordinated. I am pretty open to trying anything active. I'd love some patient work out buddies. Don't have to necessarily be the same fitness level as me, as long as you are ok with me having to catch up! :-)
The journey is the destination. Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
I spend most of my time in Gresham now. I have a membership to Planet Fitness on 182nd and Division. A workout buddy would be awesome. I could also take someone as a guest a few times to see if it is a good fit. They are 24 hours and I tend to go late at night. :)

Recovering from surgery & illness. I'm in Downtown/NW Portland & am looking for an Exercise Buddy in the same area as I do not have a vehicle. I live within walking distance to 24 Hour Fitness in the Pearl & have a membership. I'm also right next to the waterfront if you'd like to join me on a waterfront walk we can do a 4 mile loop or we can head over to the Springwater for a longer walk. Send me an email with your availability: what regular day(s) and time(s) each week are you available? Or which class at 24 Hour Fitness are you interested in? THANKS!

If you would like to find an exercise buddy in your area/community, please post on this thread. Be sure to include your location and exercise preference in your post. If you find an exercise buddy, please edit your post to indicate that you are no longer looking for a buddy. Good luck!
The following team members (with location) were looking for an exercise buddy in October 2013: ANITAMIRACLE7 (Clackamas), LINDAM.1 (SE Portland), CHAOTICSERENITY (SW Portland/Tigard), and BUNNIEBUILDER (SW Portland/Tigard)
