What is your BodyGroup about and who are the members?

Our BodyGroup is a collective conscious of individuals who seek to maintain all natural purity in diet and supplementation to achieve muscular development.

Why did the founder start up the group?

Our founder established the group in an effort to bring alternative awareness to the Body Building population, that individuals can achieve great results the "all natural" way.

What have your results been with starting the group?

Since starting this group, and I speak only for myself, the resulting support and role modeling have catapulted me beyond my personal limits!

How do your members use the BodyGroup feature?

There are a number of ways our members use the group. First and foremost, is to support one another in each individual's effort to achieve personal results through all natural means.

Who are some of your notable members?



"I love how strong and unbreakable I feel when I'm lifting weights. I love the adreniline rush I get after a good workout, and I love seeing the positive changes in not only my body but in my life."



"I got up to 167 pounds after highschool due to being inactive and eating all the wrong foods! I went down to 105 pounds in a few months by eating very little, but thankfully snapped out of it. I managed to get back up to 130 pounds which is when I started my profile on BodySpace!"



"Working out has transformed me from a skinny 155-pounder to a larger stronger person. My goals have changed. Now, it's more about staying fit and healthy. I'm starting to feel happy for me."



"It has become a lifestyle, not a choice. No matter what my schedule is I find time to hit the gym, even if it is the middle of the night! Hooray for 24/7 gyms!"



"I take my training seriously, however I don't pretend that it is more than it is. I train to have a fully functional body, to improve repetitive application of power, and to increase muscular endurance."

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

The attitude is easy ... "Staying the way God made us, clean, pure and natural." Although our goals are all very different, we all share the same values to keep our body natural and I guess it's only natural, that we all come together as one to support encourage and motivate each other.

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

I have met amazing people through this group… all from different walks of life and ALL (whether they realize or not) have played some part in motivating me and encouraging me to continue my journey to become a fitness model. Seeing the support and encouragement the members give one another is so inspiring and reminds me that I'm not alone on this crazy journey to better ourselves! Also, the group always praises hard work and I find that so encouraging that I keep pushing myself with my training!

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

While the commitment to natural body building is a personal choice, this decision is strengthened through the public accountability of being a member of the "The All Naturals" BodyGroup. Regular communications with the group members serves as a constant affirmation of the natural body building lifestyle.

Behold my sun-kissed abs.

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

Getting in shape and maintaining a high degree of fitness is difficult for anyone. It is easy to become discouraged when progress does not come as fast as you would like. Knowing that other members of the "The All Naturals" have succeeded in reaching their fitness goals naturally provides a source of encouragement outside and inside of the gym - a valuable asset since the natural bodybuilding lifestyle is a 24-7 pursuit.

Why join your group as opposed to other transformation groups?

"The All Naturals" is, by far, the most active BodyGroup with an interest in natural body building! People looking to connect with other natural athletes will find ample assistance through the members of our BodyGroup.

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

We have members from all over the world that regularly post highlights of their workouts and body building accomplishments. Even in times of need, we have regularly seen members reach out to other members to offer support. The best motivation from our group pages comes from consistent involvement and the taking time to meet all the knowledgeable people that post on our site daily.
