I'm looking for people to hike with on Sundays. I'm a mail carrier so the only day I have for sure off is Sunday. If you're in the beaverton area and don't mind getting up early, I can hike anywhere here from 6-7am, but I want to do big hikes on Sundays. Some of my upcoming hikes are the ape caves, back to silverfalls, multinomah, the olympia nature trails, and whatever else I can find that looks fun. It doesn't just have to be in beaverton. I tore a ligament in my foot at Silverfalls last Sunday, so I'll be slow go for the next couple of weeks emoticon but it should only be a couple of weeks until I'm back to normal. I just really want someone to walk with. I can leave the dog at home if you want. I love hiking with my kids but they don't like anything over 2 miles and when I say hike, I want to be gone for at least 5 miles.

Hi,

I am 28 and live in NW (near Tanasborne/185th). I also have a membership with extreme edge if someone would like to meet there for working out.

I also drive through downtown and Hawthorne everyday and don't mind to stop there somewhere after work.

Hello everyone! I live in SW Portland and I'd love to find a hiking/walking buddy who doesn't mind the rain. I'm looking to lose about 15 lbs and have a more active lifestyle, as well as spend more time appreciating the gorgeous scenery in this area. I'm in college so my schedule is weird & busy but very flexible. Let me know if you're interested!

Is there anyone in the NW region/nob hill area looking for a walking/slow running buddy? I'm 28, live in the nob hill district, and I'm new to running and alternate between walking and running. There are so many trails near-by to where I live so if anyone is in this area, let me know! :)

We've been in Beaverton for about 2 months and I still haven't made any adult friends. For some reason I left my confidence back in Texas. So if anyone on here likes to hike or wants to come use my gym here at my apartments or has a place that kids can go also, I'd love to work out with you. My kids are with me 24/7 until school starts though.

I'm looking for an occasional workout buddy. I workout at 24hr fitness at mall205. Usually later at night but sometimes I get there around 10am. I don't spend alot of time there, 1-2 hours, and usually stick to the elliptical or stair machines. If anyone is a 24hr fitness member and visits this location it would be great to meet other SP members :)

I literally know nobody in Oregon. I've never moved without knowing anyone so I'd like to make some friends if I can. We're moving to the Beaverton area. My kids are 9 and would be ok in the apartment for 1-2 hours but I'm kind of a worry queen about leaving them on their own so honestly it wouldn't be more than an hour. But if someone wants to come workout with me in my apartment fitness area or someplace where kids are welcome I'd love to come workout or hang out with you.
We'll be out there on the 27th.

I also would like to find a Buddy so that we can support each other in our efforts to lose weight and get in better shape. I am not so young 66 this past January. And I also have some health issues which keeps me from doing a lot of intense exercising, but walking is an option for me. I live in the Tigard area and I am close to the Harmon Swim Center. I would love to take some water exercise classes and it would be so much better to do that with someone rather than alone and not knowing anyone. If anyone out there fits this Buddy request, get in touch. emoticon

I live on the campus of Portland State and would love to find a workout buddy. Right now I'm spending most of my workout time at the rec center on campus, but I would love to find a buddy to do some outdoor training. I'm currently working through a couch to 5k program and just started week one. I'm not fast at all given how out of shape I've been, but I'm determined and I'd love to add the motivation of meeting up with someone!

I am looking for a workout buddy. I am about 170lbs overweight, but am physically able to do a lot. I like to go to Zumba, swim (usually when as few people are around as possible), walk (with an ipod or a friend would be ideal), I like to hike in the Gorge when the weather isn't horrible. I have a membership at the East Portland Community Center, and a car, so I can go anywhere fitness will take me. :)

I work M-F, so nights and weekends work best for me. Unless I joined a gym that was open super early and then I'd be willing to do it then.

I need to lose this weight and I need help.

I live in SE (by Oregon City). Have about 150lbs to lose, but can usually keep up with most walkers. I'm more of a purpose exerciser. Example: Let's meet and walk to the coffee shop, or walk the Hawthorne district and shop, or try the walks in the books I'm always seeing in the book stores. Hate treadmills, but hate walking in the rain more. I've taken Krav Maga and Kickboxing (love them) but also like aqua aerobics (especially if followed by the hottub). I'm working through a few injuries at this point, but have a goal to have them resolved sooner than later. I find it harder to talk myself out of exercising if I know someone is waiting/depending on me.

I'm here in IL, but will be visiting my son in Portland during Thanksgiving week, where we'll be running the 5K Tigard Turkey Trot & was just looking to see if anybody wanted to meet up at least once while I was there. Kind of like a 12-step group, I guess, trying to connect with another 'member.' emoticon
So unless I get offered a job & have to start by that time, which isn't very likely, I'll be there 11/21-11/29.
Thanks, & hope to hear from someone. emoticon

Thanks for starting this thread, Danielle! This is exactly what I was hoping to find by joining a local Team and I sent contact info to you in a message.

I'm a full-time mom. I have about 15-20 pounds I'd like to work off. I'm in the SE area.


Cheers!

Hello all! I am new to the Portland area, currently in Aloha, but we are moving to the Woodstock area in a couple of months. I was hoping someone here goes to LA Fitness on 82nd? If so, drop me a line, after the first of the year, maybe we can work out together!

Or if you know of any other gym in the area that might be better?

M name is Danielle and I would love to find a local buddy to do any indoor/outdoor activity. I do not like "working out" but I love doing fun activities. I would love to find someone who has a wide range of interests so that we could just pick different things to do all the time.

Some examples are:
- Hiking (local portland trails in addition to others within 100 miles of Portland)
- Biking (east side esplanade)
- Roller skating, Ice skating, bowling, dance dance revolution, wii sports, trampoline gym (tigard), batting cages, maybe a beginner day at the rock climbing gym, a kayaking tour, white water rafting, etc etc etc)

I work mostly M-F so I am available nights and weekends

I live in SE and have a car but would prefer a buddy who doesn't have to be picked up or would share carpooling duties for things like driving to the hiking trail

I am 26 and am in pretty decent shape with about 10 pounds I'd like to loose. I like to do active things that keep me healthy without feeling like I'm "working". Anyone who shares this mentality and would like someone to do these things with feel free to drop me a line. I'm looking to build friendships with people that is based around a healthy lifestyle but doesn't always have to involve a physical activity (i'm also interesting in trying a new healthy restaurant, getting a cup of coffee/tea, watching a good movie, etc etc)

I hear a lot of people who want to find a buddy and yet there doesn't appear to be an appropriate location to do this at least not one that is recent. If you're searching for someone in your neighborhood to meet up with in person post a message here.

1. What types of activities your looking for a buddy for (ex, "I want to find a hiking buddy", "I'm looking for a workout partner at 24 hour fitness downtown")

2. What your schedule is/what days are you looking to do your activity (ex, "I work M-F and am looking for someone to hike with on the weekends", "I like to work out M/W/F at 6am)

3. If you have a particular area you'd like your buddy to be, I find that people tend to stay close to their neighborhood (ex "NE laurelhurst area", "Downtown")

4. Any personal info you'd like to share, like your fitness level, weight loss goal, etc
