Yah I guess. I haven't inquired how to bring ppl to the team and I don't really do a lot with it, since I have my own set of fitness goals that could be degraded by following the challenges.

Just pointing out that there are some good things that are hidden. Be active on Spark and you will likely encounter something like that sooner or later.

I'm actually on a private team that is extremely active. Possibly even more than the P90X Bring It team, which was one of the more active ones I've been on. They have special challenges and things most months, threads for discussion that happen every day, and send out private emails for all the challenges and things. Also there are three group leaders, at least two of whom are very active at any given time.

Couch to 5k is my favorite. I always get helpful advice there.

@KJ - so the Spark Cafe is where you can take cerebral and risqué topics? I know we're certainly allowed to take dumb topics there. heh.

Too bad I didn't get to see some of your axed topics.

Oh, and my favorite team is in my sig, but I'm heavily biased.

I agree with KJ about SparkPeople. At least in my experience, I don't know if there really is a "best" team here. I think it's the old adage that you get out of it what you really are determined to put into it.

I am a big fan of C25K group. It turned me into a runner and now I go back and encourage other and draw from the accomplisments of others and the team leaders.

For me: I consider SparkPeople as a social networking message board forum with a severe emphesis on Health.

That said, I like 'active' teams REGARDLESS of the nature of the team. I have been a member of age related teams and sex (and weird sex) related teams, gamer gaming teams (I am the leader of my own), Political teams, diabetes teams ALL SORTS of teams but if go inactive I move on.

I spend 90% of my time on SP in the Spark Cafe' because there is NO focused topic there, it's ala' carte! LOL!

I would spend more time here in the guy's lounge but the any topic I start either gets the AXE or it's too cerebral, or just too dumb.

I have joined different teams and left a few. While some teams are supportive and active I have found some teams to be inactive and focussed on topics other than fitness.

So here's my two-part question...
What is the best Spark Team out there? The one that keeps you motivated and coming back. Why?
