[ Q ] How would you explain the attitude needed in your group, to a new member?

New members do not need to be the next Bruce Lee. All we ask is that you are committed to self improvement through hard work and determination. Also we hope that members will participate regularly in discussions on the group message boards and to help other members achieve their goals. This group does not work without member participation. The more members put into the group, the more they will personally benefit from it.


[ Q ] In what way has motivating other BodySpace users, given you the ability to push yourself to new levels?

Motivating other group members has enabled me to push my own training to new levels because you realize that you are not training alone. My gains went through the roof when I realized that I was not training alone but with each and every other member of the group.


[ Q ] What would you tell someone who is contemplating making a commitment to joining your group, to motivate them make the commitment?

Join the group and you will certainly find a group of friendly like minded people who are willing to answer any of your MMA training questions.


[ Q ] How do you think the group mentality applies to your personal life and how has it helped?

To be a successful martial artist you must be absolutely dedicated and be willing to work like a dog and make sacrifices to achieve your goals. This strong mentality crosses over to everyday life and you will see the benefits in your work and family life too.

[ Q ] Why join your group as opposed to other transformation groups?

There is no other transformation group like "Addicted to MMA" because it so specific to our niche sport. Martial Artists need to train differently from pure bodybuilders as our members are often looking to improve their explosive power, their ground and stand up fighting technique and their endurance.


[ Q ] How do you feel, is the best way to motivate others within the confines of the group page?

The best way to motivate other members is to share with them your personal experiences during training. Let them know that they are not training alone but are training with a whole community who want to see them succeed.


The Power Of Groups

The cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead once said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever does." So what's the secret? Why are groups so powerful? The answer lies in their social dynamic!

  • Group members often have the same goals.
  • They motivate one another.
  • They learn from each other.
  • They become a family that provides support when times are tough and entertainment when things are good!

-> Build Success:

    Having the right social network can define success in any endeavor that you pursue. After all, a man is judged by the company he keeps. Someone who shares your goals can help you overcome any adversity.

    Finding that person, however, can be just as difficult. A BodyGroup can connect you with people who can mentor you, challenge you, and exchange ideas that you might not have come across otherwise.


-> Help Others:

    You, in turn, can help others on the same path. By acting as both student and teacher, keeping an open mind to new ideas and different methods, you may be the catalyst to the success of your group. Helping someone else with their goals can be very rewarding, and oftentimes, we benefit just as much by helping out.

    BodyGroups are a great way to ask questions, learn, and make progress in a fun and positive environment! No matter what goals you have in mind, don't do it all alone-join a BodyGroup and find all the support you need, any time, all the time.

    Joining a group is quick and easy! Find a group that matches up with what you want to do, check them out, and join! Then it's just up to you to contribute and communicate.


-> Start Your Own Group:

    What if the group I am looking for doesn't exist? Maybe you can't find the group you were looking for. That's ok, because you can start your own group, and then invite others to join you! You can even start and be a member of multiple BodyGroups. If having one circle of friends is good, then more is better!
