Why follow the fitness community

I was on Facebook earlier and Ripped Goddess asked this really great question:
Why do YOU come to Ripped Goddess or to any fitness page? I'm not asking this for compliments, but for real answers. Is it to receive motivation? Advice? To promote your own endeavors? To criticize and scrutinize? Or to feel supported? For community? I REALLY want to know. There are all types of "fitness" pages with all types of purposes.... so I'm interested in seeing if your reason matches my vision.
A million reasons came to mind for me of why I choose to follow so many health and fitness pages and blogs:
  • I want to know what is working for real people.
  • I want to meet others that have been where I was
  • I want to meet others who have achieved the amount of health or fitness I desire
  • I want support
  • I want to be surrounded by people that care about their health
  • I want advice
  • I want to know the latest research and trends
  • I just plain want (make that need) some motivation some days
  • I want to find products and services that work
  • I want to meet others who have Crohns, Ulcerative Colitis or any other inflammatory bowel disease and how they are beating it with nutrition and exercise
  • I need new workout ideas
  • I need new healthy recipes
So those are my reasons.

Why do you choose to follow health and fitness pages and blogs?
