Social Media and Fitness

What (you may be asking) does social media have to do with fitness?

Well, you are reading this blog hoping for some health tips and tricks, aren't you?

Many of us use social media every day to help us on our quest for good health and don't even realize it. Whether you are following a fitness guru on Twitter or joined a weight loss group on Facebook, we are all looking for support to help us reach our wellness goals.

With so many options out there, how do you know which platforms (or people) will actually help YOU? Here are some tips to help you choose.

  1. The Sites You Visit Daily -It might be worth your while to follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter to save you time and get quick tips (I use TweetDeck to keep it all organized).
  2. Talk To Your Friends - Ask your friends which sites they use (or don't use) and why. They can introduce you to a new person or network that you may have never found on your own.
  3. You Can't Do Everything - There are a lot of social media sites out there and they are not for everybody so you need do your homework. Learn about the purpose of the site and see if it would be a good fit to help you reach your health goals (here is a categorized list of sites to get you started at Traffikd).

Stay Healthy,
