Can Twitter Make You Fitter?

Why social networking is the next best thing for fitness and weight-loss success.


Have a closer look at your Twitter timeline or Facebook homepage next time you’re online: there, in between the wedding photos of people you haven’t seen since school and the LOLs at the latest viral YouTube clip, you’re likely to see an increasing number of people logging kilometres jogged, gym sessions completed, healthy meals cooked and fitness advice exchanged.

While the thought of sitting on your butt behind a computer might not sound like the most obvious way to get fitter and stronger, more and more of us are learning that it might just be. Why? Because your online activity can impact your offline physical activity by keeping you motivated, holding you accountable for the exercise you say you’re going to do, and providing you with an encouraging community of people with similar goals.

Support at your fingertips
Some people are taking to Twitter to record their steps. Others have turned to Facebook to share news of the runs they’ve done, or their weekly weight loss or tips on lean cuisine. There is a whole community of people out there with similar goals.

Fitness advice – for free!
Personal trainers don’t come cheap, but with Twitter you have access to fitness experts around the world whenever you need advice.

How to make social media work for you

  1. State your goals in your Facebook status or on Twitter, you’ll be less inclined to skip a gym session once you’ve made a public promise.
  2. Search through Twitter for people talking about your fitness interests: type # followed by whatever you’re interested in into the search bar (for example, #Pilates) and see what other fans are talking about.
  3. Don’t lie! If you’re not in the mood, post it. Sometimes Twitter can give you that little nudge to put your trainers on.
  4. Share your spoils. If you feel great after a 10km run, you’ll feel even better when Twitter followers and Facebook friends reach out to congratulate you on your achievement, and the thought of that might keep you going.
