Ever been to a local pub in England or Ireland? From that old television show, where everyone knows your name? That can be found in many towns in Canada as well, where you feel at home and comfortable when out for a pint and sandwich.

There is a sport conditioning (And STAK Fitness customer) studio in Guelph, Ontario called SHIFT www.theshift.ca, with the same feeling. That is where my son trains and he is always greeted with a hello, by name, and his surrounded by like-minded peers from different sports, self-motivated and there to get better, stronger, faster. They support each other and the trainers are really coaches and teachers, and they make the young athletes feel comfortable.

One could even argue that coffee shops across Canada have developed that same feeling. Ever go into the small town coffee shop in different parts of the country? You will find a feel of community – even if a big name brand.

These places feel like home, you feel like you belong, and surrounded by folks who have lots in common with you.

From dictionary: a community is a group “who share common interests or common heritage”.
