For my targeted behavior I chose to select an individual who was engaging in exercise and who did not fit the stereotypical fitness nut. I wanted to target someone who was at the beginning of a lifestyle transformation. I chose a guy who was a little heavier than most but I noticed he was always asking around the gym for lifting advice and nutritional information. I could tell he was in the process of making a change. He was a potential prospect but I did not rush in to give away my wristband and tell him about the movement, instead I waited to see if he would continue this transformation. I don't know if it's allowed but I helped him here and there with positive remarks and just being friendly and helpful whenever he would come to the gym. I did not want him to come in and be intimidated by the regulars which I have seen happen. These small conversations and tips must have worked because over the past few months I have really noticed a difference in not only his appearance but in the way he acts. He seems much more confident and jokes around in between workouts but always working hard and that's why I chose him to give my wristband # 78140 to. I was in the same boat as him when I was over-weight but instead I did not have a lot of support while making my lifestyle change. I am glad I was able to partake in this activity, it really does make a difference and hopefully he will pass on the wristband to continue the movement.
