Spring/Summer Outdoor Fitness

Interested in getting ready for the warm weather season of paddling, biking, hiking and swimming? Want to have the support of other women being active together? TSM has a program for you.

Starting on April 13, we will be getting together every Saturday morning and Monday evening for a planned activity of walking/running or biking. There is opportunity for swimming as well. We will rotate our meeting place on the east and west sides of Madison to accommodate members.

Some TSM women are interested in working up to a fitness level where they would be ready to complete part or all of a sprint distance triathlon - 15 mile biking, 3 mile walk/run and/or quarter mile swim.

Our Mon./Sat. sessions are open to any TSM members wanting to work on their fitness with support and be ready for the boating season too. We have a bike safety session in the works and swim classes too. We will continue the program through mid-July but may continue based on popularity.

Our first meeting is:
Saturday, April 13, 2019

UW Sports Medicine Fitness Center, 621 Science Drive, Madison
Rm 1111B
We will go over our plan for activities as well begin moving together.

LOCAL FITNESS ACTIVITIES and Resources

What’s your favorite fitness? If you have a fitness opportunity or event that you participate in, plan to register for, and is available for fellow members, family, or friends to participate in, please forward it and we'll share it with members.

Why Not Ask!

As an all volunteer, member-driven, and member-led organization, we look to you to help brainstorm or solve a current need. The best way to find out if you can help, is to ask. Current needs for the organization:

Business services for the TSM office. Do you know a local business/data/internet provider that may be willing to donate or offer reduced rate services? Does your employer offer something like this to non-profits? This would allow TSM to set-up business operations at our office.


If you have leads on any of the above, please email TEAMSurvivor with details. THANKS!
