Tired of Walking all by Yourself?

Do you want to meet new people and organize a small, chatty group, all while taking a long walk? Well, I bet it’s time to start a walking club business.

  • Why Start a Walking Club?
  • There is no walking club in your place.
  • Your area’s walking clubs are not active enough.
  • You want to fulfill what isn’t offered in other walking clubs, like more challenging or leisurely walks, late afternoon walks, etc.
  • You want to build friendships and know more about your club members through walking.
  • You want to give bonuses to the walking club members, like who walked the farthest, etc.
  • You want to establish a newsletter, email group, or website to connect with other walking club members.
  • And in the end, you want to make money starting a walking club.

Start a Walking Club

  • But before you start a walking business, take note of some of the tips that can be very helpful in making your walking club business successful.
  • A walking club will never be a walking club unless you have a group of people to share the activity with. Find out who wants to join your club. Start asking around and know who is willing to devote a part of their time to meet and walk in the park. Initially, start with your friends and family. Indeed, it will be a delightful activity. Not only will you have a walking companion, but you’ll also enjoy the company that they bring.
  • Plan your walking late in the afternoon or during dusk. Most people won’t be available until around 6:00 pm since some are working. Walking in the evening, especially during summer months, is an excellent choice since it is usually more relaxed compared to other parts of the day. This is a critical choice, especially in areas with high temperatures.
  • Have a friendly, comfortable pair of shoes and a handy walking stick. It’s always nice to walk when you feel comfortable.
  • Have walking when the weather is good. You can do it in spring, summer, or fall. Likewise, consider the place and the weather in your area.

Take a rest before you start walking. You may want to build your stamina before you walk, but this can overwhelm you and even make you feel tired before you start walking.
