[ Q ] What is your BodyGroup about and who are the members?

My BodyGroup is about training and how each individual can keep all the other team members motivated by stating how their training is going and how progress is coming along. All the members in our group are people who only know one way of training, and that way is hardcore; they go hard or don't go.

We have over 700 members to date, some of the most popular on BodySpace are the following: Beautifulgrace, Irondiva83, flyboyjustice, girlontherun, biceman, ladyfirefighter.

[ Q ] Why did the founder start up the group?

We started the group to become motivators and try and push everyone we can into a new level of training and physical fitness.


[ Q ] What have your results been with starting the group?

The group continues to grow daily; each and every member tries and pushes every other member to the max with their training and progress. I see everyone else making strides to reaching their goals on a daily basis, it makes me want to do the same thing, and seeing what is being posted makes me want to train harder and harder every time I walk in the gym.


[ Q ] How do your members use the BodyGroup feature?

To track and follow the progression of other members.

Hey Team! I feel ya. My first leg day on Steve's new workout...I bout yacked in the middle of the gym. Closest I've been to puking in probably 10 years. It's definitely brutal to say the least! Glad to hear so many of you are making such good progress. I can't wait to reach my final weight loss and BF% goal, and if anyone is going to make sure I do it successfully, it's definitely Steve! He is such a great motivator and inspiration. Best of luck to you all!

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

The Team Poynter work ethic is really a must. You have to want to go hardcore or go home. There is no in between. We don't even know the meaning of failure. That's what it takes to achieve greatness, and Team Poynter wants to get there.


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

BodySpace is the king of all fitness sites; everyone you see on here has a special drive in them. They can bring out the best in anyone. If you track progress and watch how someone can change in a short time, what else could you want in the form of motivation; it's all right here on this site.


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

What would be the reasoning you would not join a group that is full of true life transformations? Each individual in the group is 110% dedicated to training and proper nutrition, join us if you are 110% dedicated to the task before you.

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

As I do online training and meal planning, this group has helped me so much in my personal life, not only bringing in more clients but allowing me to do what I set out to do, and that would be: change peoples lives with fitness!


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

I personally say join mine and all others that can bring you the motivation you need to transform your body. I am not saying my group is better than anyone's, we all have different ways to help one change one's body with fitness, so why you have the chance to see all these ways, go for it, join all the groups you can.

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

Reading the testimonials, tracking the progress and looking at the pictures that other members post on their personal pages.

Thanks Team Poynter for all you do!


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!
