An Online Support Team is the Secret to Getting In Shape

Share Article is a new free site for getting support to stay with an exercise program

First it was a piece of exercise equipment that soon became a clothes hanger. Then expensive running shoes that were worn mostly to pick up the mail. Or a gym membership that stopped being used after the first three months. “You know how important exercise is, and you want to try again,” says Joan Greco, founder and CEO of My Mighty Team. “What can get you to stick with it this time?”

“The secret to sticking to a resolution to exercise is other people,” says Greco. “You’ve got to have a support team – people who know your exercise plan, will cheer you on when you do it, and bug you when you don’t.”

My Mighty Team is a new free online service for connecting members with team support. On the site, one can easily and quickly invite friends, family or fellow gym members to join a team and help make progress. One can also use MIGHTY's Teammate Finder to suggest like-minded people to work with.

Here’s how My Mighty Team works:

  •     First, declare a goal for the week or, even better, for the day, such as getting to the gym; running a certain distance; or taking the stairs at work.
  •     Second, do it!
  •     Third, report back to the team before the deadline.

Along the way members can post photos of a fitter self; celebrate monthly milestones; or rant about the guy who doesn’t wipe his sweat off the bike. The teams are private and invitation-only, so what’s shared with a team stays with a team. See more about how MIGHTY helps people Get Moving.

My Mighty Team boasts communication tools that let teammates blog, text, and get updates through email or cell phones. And, in addition to the private team pages, a public page for exercisers (called simply “I Will Exercise”) ranks top resources and lets the larger MIGHTY community share tips and experiences.
