Join our founder Melody Biringer and learn about our brand NEW community club. This will be a zoom information call (not a walk).

Are you loving the WiT Regatta and want more? We have designed a way to continue the conversations, deepen our relationships with each other and meet new friends throughout the year.

There's a Latin phrase—solvitur ambulando—which means “it is solved by walking.” Virginia Woolf walked through her writer’s block. Beethoven took walking breaks to spur creativity. Some of the world’s most successful executives take important meetings on foot. New moms everywhere know how connected you can feel to the world just by taking a stroll around the block (with or without a stroller).

We know what you’re thinking: “I don’t speak Latin, my creative place is the coffee shop on the corner, and all my meetings are conducted over screens these days. Also, the outside world is overrated.” But what if we told you something as simple as walking could be… transformative?

Enter Loop a modern walking club, a new community of literal movers and shakers with the desire to expand and diversify their network, who “meet” over steps in the street instead of over drinks at the bar (though we haven’t totally given up on happy hour). Whether you’re a marathoner or haven’t managed to find time to exercise in years, Loop is a safe virtual space to boost your energy, generate new ideas, and discover fresh perspectives by simply moving your body. It’s also an opportunity to get looped in on how other leaders—advocates, influencers, and anyone dissatisfied with the status quo—are dealing with some of the same struggles and successes in their professional and personal lives. It’s an opportunity to celebrate vulnerability and strength. Because Loop is a community of discerning, experienced problem-solvers, we don’t need intimidating celebrity speakers—just everyday people sharing ideas in an intimate, audio-only (video-optional) environment.

The goal is simple: To move your body to fuel your mind, connect more fully with yourself—and others—by connecting with the world outside. Studies show you’re twice as creative while out walking as you are slumped behind your desk. And you need those big ideas to make the most of your big life. Maybe some days you’ll lace up those sneakers to strategize your next career move. Maybe you’ll meet your new BFF chatting about a shared love of Thai food. Or maybe you simply want to stroll and listen in on gardening advice. It doesn’t matter why you show up, only that you do. Loop is about building community, and building you up from wherever you’re starting.
