A New Beginning

Speedy Sneakers Walking and Running Clubs will begin operation in the spring of 2008. The mission of the clubs will be to promote women’s health and fitness through walking and running.

The clubs were inspired by my belief that women face two very real realities.

Women are held to a higher standard when it comes to their appearance. It is unfortunate that this is the case, but too often it is true. Oversize and weight are seen as negative traits, even if the person is of great character. I believe that most women do not want to be overweight, but through circumstances that are sometimes difficult to manage they end up with some undesirable weight.

Women face more health concerns as they age. Osteoporosis, breast and ovarian cancers, and diabetes are common. Exercise can help fight against these conditions. I realize that science is not perfect, but there is no medical doctor that will say that exercise encourages disease, but rather that exercise can fight disease.

Speedy Sneakers is a club for women (though men can join), that is committed to helping women meet their health and fitness goals. It is my sincere desire that if you commit to an exercise program whether it is with Speedy Sneakers or not that you will be able to achieve those goals.

If you are interested in joining Speedy Sneakers, visit our website at to locate a club in your area, or if no club exists, consider starting your own Speedy Sneakers franchise.
