How many groups do you really need to be in?

Some one has to much time on their hands. I noticed in the group section someone created 30 groups that say the same thing. How can you keep up with groups, exercise and work? What are they thinking?

Wow, really?

I am in three....two teams and one group...but I admit I have some spare time, but I couldn't imagine being in that many...but I guess whatever works!

I am in two groups. That is plenty for me. I would rather be outside instead of in front of the computer. I would rather be in two that are quality groups vs. a bunch that aren't very motivating or that the people only log once in awhile. I have already gone that route, doesn't work for me.

The "getting started" groups are created by the site so that people who need a little extra guidance when they get here, get some.

I'm in about 6 groups and one small team. I find that, that way, at least one is active all the time. I honestly don't read every single person's log every day, but when people comment in the "comments" section, then I look at what's going on.

OP, why don't you concentrate on your fitness rather than criticize others who are trying to be helpful?

That makes more sense knowing that PT started the groups, it would have been weird if it was a individual who did it, thats just my opinion. If you are in a group you should read everyones log, that is why you are in a group, to help each other out. How do you know what is going on with others if you are not reading them? I love the great ideas I get from reading others logs. It will motivate me to do an extra 10 pushups or walk an extra mile because some one else did that day. Anyway, have a beautiful day!

I got into a PT group and I have found it very helpful and so far have been loving my groups!
