Community is Crucial

While changing oneself and working on what you can control is essential, without community it's a very difficult road to go down.  We promote a community that looks beyond the differences among us and focuses on the common goals we all have; to make positive changes in our lives while helping the other members of our community make changes by offering support, encouragement and guidance.  This is most especially important in the area of fitness as numerous studies have shown that those who have support are much more successful than those who don't.  Whether it's in person, via phone, online etc....the long term results are better.  I can attest to this with fitness training clients, particularly couples....if they have support from each other or from a friend etc. it makes all the difference in their success or lack thereof when it comes to getting in shape and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Seeking support by creating community breaks barriers to change and opens opportunities.
