For six weeks Sheryl Crow and Gabby Reece are partners for life -- and we can watch it all go down online. Seriously.
Should you get yourself a life partner? read more
Yahoo Health has created Side-by-Side, a fabulous interactive program geared at promoting women's health and strength. On the forum, Gabby enables Sheryl to become stronger and healthier in six weeks and we (the viewers) are able to watch it all happen because they post weekly chats the two women have, as well as email correspondences. By focusing on Sheryl's health, strength and overall wellness, Gabby is literally her Life Partner.
This concept is great in so many ways! Not only are they promoting women's health topics but they are also promoting a sense of community. Sometimes you need a partner helping and motivating you along the way. We may not all be amazing breast cancer survivor-super star-singers with professional volleyball player friends to turn to, but anyone with the right goals in mind can be that person for you. Furthermore, Side-by-Side is not a weight loss promotion (because as we all know, Sheryl does not need to lose any pounds) but a self wellness promotion. Let's face it, we can all use someone to tell us how great we are every once in a while.
Fit's Tip: If you haven't already, get yourself a life partner with the same wellness goals in mind and you can be their life partner too!
