What to Look For: Help
There are so many communities out there for your fitness journey! This is such an amazing time to be willing and ready to get fit! Everywhere you look, there is a group that is pursuing some sort of fitness goal!
With all of the communities that are out there, how can you possibly know which one to pick?! Today, we are going to examine an area that you should be looking into to ensure you select the most appropriate environment for you!
Today, we are talking about the amount of help that you receive from your community!
There are many different groups out there. Some of them are helpful and some of them are merely a gathering of people that are doing the same things. Which you choose may depend on the amount of help that you feel you need!
For example, some running and biking groups are full of people that have been running or biking for years! This group may not provide a ton of help for someone that is just starting their journey! That person may benefit more from a beginner's type of community!
While there is nothing wrong with the advanced community, someone that is new just may not benefit from it like someone who is more seasoned. Instead, the "Newbie" may benefit from a group that is geared more towards teaching and showing that person what they should be doing to progress into the more difficult community!
How can you know if the community is right for you and will help you to take your next steps? Ask them!
Explain to them your current status, your goals and your problems that you are having. Ask them what they can do to help! Have them explain the steps that they can help you to achieve! Ask ALL the questions until you have an understanding of how you might fit into the community!
This will help you to know if the community you are stepping into is the right one for you!
