Description

Think of your five closest friends. What jobs do these people have? Are they happy with their lives? Are they in committed relationships? What are their favorite things to do? Are they healthy? Do they exercise? As Lean Bodies Consulting's Erik Ledin explains, our closest friends have a huge impact on our lives. We are social beings and it is easy to fall into behaviors in groups, like going out to eat with friends frequently or grabbing a drink after work a couple nights a week. Your friends will also influence what kind and how much work you put into your body and physique.

Friends  Can  Impact  Your  Fitness  Success   By  Erik  Ledin   February  12,  2014     Think  of  your  five  closest   friends.  What  jobs  do  these   people  have?  Are  they  happy   with  their  lives?  Are  they  in   committed  relationships?  What   are  their  favorite  things  to  do?   Are  they  healthy?  Do  they   exercise?     Our  closest  friends  have  a  huge   impact  on  our  lives.  We  are   social  beings  and  it  is  easy  to  fall   into  behaviors  in  groups,  like   going  out  to  eat  with  friends   frequently  or  grabbing  a  drink   after  work  a  couple  nights  a  week.  Your  friends  will  also  influence  what  kind  and  how  much   work  you  put  into  your  body  and  physique.     For  example,  if  your  friends  go  to  the  gym  that  is  something  you  can  do  together  to  socialize.   Additionally,  you  can  talk  about  easy  or  hard  parts  of  a  workout  and  encourage  each  other   to  be  consistent  or  even  challenge  each  other  to  perform  better.     It  is  important  to  keep  an  eye  on  your  friend’s  habits,  because  they  are  yours  too.  Do  your   friends  engage  in  behaviors  that  help  them  remain  fit,  lean  and  strong  or  do  they  abuse  their   bodies  with  a  lot  of  sugar  and  sedentary  behavior?  Do  you  see  your  friends  encouraging  and   raising  the  bar  for  you  physically  or  lowering  the  bar?     These  are  all  important  questions  to  consider  as  you  take  a  look  at  your  friends  and  how   they  influence  your  life.  Some  would  say  that  you  are  the  average  of  the  five  people  you   spend  the  most  time  with.  Think  about  who  those  five  people  are  and  what  that  says  about   your  lifestyle  choices,  health,  and  happiness.  If  you’re  not  happy  with  what  you  see,   reconsider  your  relationships  and  always  surround  yourself  with  healthy,  happy,  active   people.       Erik  Ledin  earned  his  certification  as  a  Personal  Trainer  (CPT)  and  a  Strength  &  Conditioning   Specialist  (CSCS)  from  the  National  Strength  &  Conditioning  Association.  Additionally,  he  is   also  a  Certified  Kinesiologist  from  the  Ontario  Kinesiology  Association  (OKA),  as  well  as  a   Certified  Sports  Nutritionist  from  the  International  Society  of  Sports  Nutrition  (ISSN).  Erik   Ledin  is  a  regularly  attendee  of  the  national  conferences  for  NSCA  and  ISSN.  He  enjoys   converting  his  education  in  body  science  into  real  life  results  and  measurable  success.
