Are you ready to start on a path to a happier, fitter life?
You’ve come to the right place.
Imagine carving out 30 minutes a day for yourself! Getting outside in the fresh air, experiencing nature and moving your body. Imagine sharing this with a friend or two, bonding, sharing and finding more energy than you thought possible.
I know you’re thinking “sounds delightful”. If you’re reading this, chances are you are hoping to create a walking habit to improve your fitness and maybe lose some weight and connect with other moms like you. Whether you are already walking a few miles a week, or just considering getting started, you’ve taken a step. You’ve visited us to learn more. Welcome!
Through more than a decade running Macaroni Kid — a company dedicated to empowering moms and enriching communities — I’ve learned two things. First, we all crave connection with other moms. Second, we all want to get in better shape. That’s why I started 99 Walks as a place for us to connect and make walking fun and part of our lifestyle. Because walking together is magic for moms. As Kelly said “I walked with my team today and it was such a mood booster for me!”
I believe we’ve discovered the secret to helping you make the changes you are hoping for. Creating community and support, and keeping it simple. We’ve started with a month-long walking challenge. Just 30 days and 33 miles per person, 99 miles for a team of three. Just a bit over a mile a day. Anyone can do that!
Well, yes and no. With the right support, a team with them and behind them, yes, we’ve found anyone can do it. Without a team, a goal and community, more than half will fail. That’s why we’re here.
And if you can do one month, you can do two and three and before you know it you are well on your way to being your best self. All you have to do is say “I’m in”. I hope you will, and I hope you’ll join us.
I’m super passionate about this community. From my videos, our private Facebook group, podcasts and live calls while we walk, I’m all in.
Thanks for taking the time to read about 99 Walks. Keep reading below to learn more, and feel free to reach out to me with any questions by emailing Joyce@99walks.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
WE’LL LET THE RESULTS DO THE TALKING
“Not only have I lost almost 15lbs since I started 99 Walks, But I can feel my mental health and stamina have improved dramatically.”
“99 walks has been so great for me! During the last two years at kids soccer practices I started staying in the car making excuses (worked all day, too hot, too cold, etc.), or spend money at Target since it is only 5 minutes from the practice fields, or sitting around talking to other parents.
Since 99 Walks, I’ve walked the entire time kids are practicing and averaging 3 miles each evening 3 times a week! And one day I started feeling cranky and moody and realized, I usually am walking at this time. I put on my shoes, put away the computer and phone, and walked 2.5 miles in my neighborhood. I felt great!”
“Never have I laid out my walking clothes where I could see them (and they taunt me until I walk). Never have I so looked forward to a walk. I joined for the coaching, the community, the inspiration, and the ideas. And you guys are delivering that ten-fold. (The awesome bracelets are a bonus.)”
“I am proud of myself, and thankful for 99 Walks! In spite of joining a week into February, and being involved in a car accident a week and a half later, I completed my 33 miles! It wasn't easy, but I was determined. I am so appreciative of the accountability and motivation 99 walks provided. On the cold and snowy days, and the I'd-rather-not days, I found satisfaction in increasing my total number toward that precious 33, and doing something that would be healthful. I also am thankful for a husband who cheered me on, and for the discovery of some cool places in my town and elsewhere for walking.”
“All month, I kept saying don’t give up because I’m “playing the long game” — the month’s theme really helped me!”
