“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together,” according to an African proverb.
That’s true for all kinds of goals – including health & fitness!
If you’re starting your health & fitness journey, you don’t have to go it alone. In fact, research shows you’ll benefit from building a support team around you.
- Friends for support when the going gets tough.
- A significant other to be supportive
- Colleagues for lunchtime walks or pep talks.
- A trainer or group of workout friends.
- An organized support group of others with similar struggles – one you find or create on your own.
- You can even hire a coach to help with some or all of what you’re trying to manage.
The reasons make sense. In addition, to support, your team can provide accountability, fun, confidence, and even a fun bit of competition, if that's your thing.
Remember that communication is key, and depends on the type of relationship you have with the members of your group. Is it someone you see regularly anyway? A professional? Casual acquaintances? All of those can play a role, but it’s on you to be clear about your needs and expectations.
Even with a team and a coach, you’re still the quarterback of your own health. Only you can do the work!
