How To Build Your Inner Support Circle

Two women in workout clothes walking with gym bags through a park.

You’ve set goals. You’re super psyched. And then you tell your family and friends about it and …

whomp whomp.

Much to your surprise, they aren’t super psyched. In fact, they might even roll their eyes and say something like “here we go again” or “I’ll believe it when I see it.”

And some may even get upset about your goals … because it could mean fewer nights out or changing up your family routine!

It’s pretty normal for this to happen.

In fact, it’s one of the top concerns I hear from new clients.

Your inner circle might just need some time to adjust and recognize that you ARE committed to making some positive changes – and maybe they’ll even get inspired themselves!

But in the meantime, you’ve heard the old saying, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”

If you are the most health/fitness-conscious person in your “5” … it’s time to add to your network to help challenge you to reach new goals!

How do you do that? Four quick ways:

● Join a local gym/studio

● Take classes online

● Go where health/fitness-conscious people are

● Work with a professional

A woman I know is a superstar at this. Her husband is in the military and they move across the country every few years … so she basically has to rebuild her local network from scratch on a regular basis.

Every time she moves somewhere new, she makes it a point to get out and meet other people who share her interests or who are experts in something she wants to try or get better at.

She takes classes, works with coaches, joins local clubs, signs up for group hikes, and (this might be the most important part) generally keeps her eye open for opportunities that look like they might be fun.
