Browsing social media sites all day is often associated with inactivity, but it doesn’t have to be. With the connectivity brought to you by Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, you can get new ideas for your diet, better methods for keeping with your workout regimen, and more motivation to get and stay fit!
Pinterest: This one is a given. You have infographics, tips, recipes, and even pictures of people working out. Pinterest is a wonderland for those looking to get physically fit. Find some tags to follow and when you find something that fits your routine, “Pin It.” Then, when you feel like skipping that spin class after work, just skim through your motivation board on Pinterest to get you going!
Instagram: You might think pictures are useless in boosting your workout, but the truth is that Instagram can offer better motivation than most other social media channels. Snapping a picture of your favorite healthy food or favorite jogging spot can help remind you to stay on track with your diet and exercise. Hash tagging your photos can also help you connect with like-minded people who can motivate you to try something new.
Facebook & Twitter: This is where the social aspect of social media really plays a part in your workout planning. Whether you are looking for workout tips, a new recipe, motivation (or competition) from friends and family, or just someplace to record your progress, both Facebook and Twitter are perfect outlets to communicate with others on how to better your workout.
