It’s true! Studies have shown that if you have someone around who can remind you of your “whys” and help you keep motivated, you’re far more likely to stay on track for your fitness goals. This can involve being in a group of people dedicated to similar fitness goals, someone who works out with you in the gym, a fitness coach or a trainer, you name it!
Don’t have anyone in your life at present who is supportive of you or could potentially be supportive? Find a good online group of people like yourself! Search in social media platforms like Facebook, join a meetup.com group, you name it! I also recommend Noom (smartphone app), MyFitnessPal, and Fitocracy. There are lots of Facebook groups for all sorts of different workouts, single moms trying to get fit, 9-5 people looking to make a difference, etc.
Trapped at work? Start a walking lunch group! If there’s a gym nearby, find out if anyone goes to it and attend it with them.
You don’t have to go at your fitness goals alone, let alone feel alone. There are options! Check out this article on further suggestions.
And of course…I’m also here for you too as a potential fitness coach. Drop me a line and find out if we’d be a good fit for each other or not!
