Hiya, I've moved you to the "Spain Forum" so that you get more responses. I know that a chap on here called "SteveHall" is into networking, new arrivals, events and stuff. I'm sure he'll be along to chat at some point. Anyway, nice to meet you, have a look around the forum and get to know us all

Hi and welcome Rachel

There are (or used to be ???) a few professional networking groups in the Marbella area specifically for english speakers.

Although I live in Estepona I work in Malaga City so Im a little out of touch with which ones still exist given the reduction in the expat workforce of late!

Ill come back to you on this, I used to have contact details for Women in Business in Marbella, and a few others.

May I ask what line of business you are in ? are you looking for anything specific or just in general terms ?

Unfortunately Rachel I decided many years ago to follow my own "life plan" and grow old discracefully!

I still think for 47 Im wearing well ... lol ... but I love chocolate, baking, my sofa too much! In addition Ive never quite liked the lycra look! lol

Best of luck and I will let you know if I find anything that may be of interest!

Ah right!! Yes we had a bit of a chat on another post, about diet etc. I'm not an active person I'm afraid and I'm too old to change my bad ways now. But there maybe folk on here who are more that way inclined.

What you could do is hire a room in a hotel on the costa and see if you can encourage expats or winter holiday makers to have a few keep fit sessions. I know you probably do personal, one to one stuff, but its a start???????

I used to be a fitness fanatic -up at 6.00 a.m. to cycle to the gym for workout and swim, step aerobics or gym every night and weekends and I got super-fit. Then I got tied up with a demanding work situation and stopped abruptly. All that muscle turned to flab.I put on over two stones. Horrible.
I'd love to get half-way fit again but the sessions would have to be gentle to begin with as I am older, lazy and getting decrepit.
Alas:(
I used to play squash, past that now as I can't see and can't shift myself fast enough but I've often wondered if there are any tennis clubs for geriatric old souls like me in the Marbella/Estepona area..

It was never suitable for any body shape in my opinion!!! and dont get me going about those stupid lycra cycling shorts that seem to be in vogue at the moment ... all that padding in those strategic areas makes the male cyclist look like he´s got a disposable nappy on! NOT A GOOD LOOK !!! PLEASE !!! :D

Hi Everyone is there any English weekly correspondance in these areas or monthly magazines, because we have a monthly magazine in Cyprus called Grapevine and I thought they maybe have something similar in Marbella-Estepona-Sotogrande areas??

Cheers

Hi Jo1990 ... Im sure there are but Im not familiar with any specific networking mag in that area at the moment.

Are you suggesting it as a help to our original poster, or looking for something yourself ...?

Hi Sue

I'm after my uncle who I think lives in Marbella, just wanted to get hold of him because of family reasons and wanted to put a ad in that paper or mag, I only had his email address but it doesn't seem to work anymore

Cheers
