During our lives the support we give to another person whether it is as a parent, teacher, grandparent or as a friend and having the support from others helps us get through tough time. Growing up we used to play outside with the neighborhood kids running around and playing games like Tag. Never really knowing how that game would have a real effect on our lives as we got older. We all go through turmoil hardships and we have others to help us through. Just when we survive it seems like others are in turmoil and hardship and Tag we are it.
One of the reasons I love being a Coach for Beachbody and a Personal Trainer is that I can be there to Support others and keep them accountable to their fitness and their health. Forming Challenge Groups has been a really great way to teach others that they can help others by keeping them accountable to large groups and to provide support that they are going through it with them. I have had several people who have completed the Challenges and have said how great it was to finish the program because they knew others were keeping them accountable and they felt that they owed it to themselves to finish. Seeing how real the results are by just committing yourself and following through gave them the results that they had never been able to accomplish on their own.
I love seeing how these same people who wanted only to just lose weight and get healthy are now helping others to do the same. Tag your it!!!!
