What is that saying again?

You are the average of the 5 closest people around you.

While originally this was a business maxim for determining your net financial worth, there was groundbreaking research in the Lancet medical journal that highlighted the significance of social networks on your health (or specifically, being overweight and obese).

This is about seeking out talented, experienced and qualified individuals who have undergone the journey and processes you need to fulfill in order to achieve your health and fitness goals. The right mentor can allow you to strive to levels you never thought would be possible.

It’s also about asking the right questions to provide insight for the mentee.
