How to Start A Fitness Support Group on Facebook

Here’s a tip from your online fitness coach:  It’s always easier to stay with your fitness routine if you have likeminded friends to support you and keep you motivated.  Did you know you could use Facebook to make your own private fitness group?  It’s a great place to bring in your friends, set some goals, track your workouts and be creative to keep each other motivated.  Here’s how to set it up.

Step 1  Go to your “home” tab in Facebook and click on the “Create Group” tab in the left sidebar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2   Now create your group. Give it a name and invite your fitness minded friends.  Then make sure you make it a secret group!  That way whatever you post is only seen by the people in your group and no one else.  Posts will appear in their timeline, but no one else will see them.  Genius.
