Get a fitness following

When people start working out with us, we are always so delighted to see how incredibly passionate about dance and fitness they become. In fact, many of our regular Sleekers have decided to go one step further and take our Sleek Technique certification to become a Sleek instructor starting their own teaching journey. Whether you are already an established trainer or are thinking about becoming a fitness professional, a great way to inspire people (and earn money) can be to grow your following on social media.

Becoming an influencer in today's digital age is not just limited to following your passion. It has become more about building your personal brand and getting potential clients. Now, if you're a fitness freak and wondering how to really utilise social media, this article is for you. 

Read on to learn three ways how you can grow your audience on social media, increase your client numbers and become a successful fitness influencer. 


Identify Your Target Audience 


Fitness is a broader term and includes different niches. Thus, it is vital that you know you're niche and what type of audience you want to target. For instance, a coach who trains people in marathons might not have enough information on how to train a bodybuilder. Likewise, if dance fitness is your realm make sure your knowledge is current and keep up-to-date with new techniques and training developments.


You must be clear as to which areas of fitness you're good at, your strengths and weaknesses so that you can create content accordingly. This will help you create a buyer persona – the audience that you want to attract. 


To reach your target audience, you can run paid advertisements and get featured on the feeds of relevant people. For this, it is important that you have a stunning personal profile. 


Create Engaging and Useful Content


If you've just started your journey, the type of content you share and its quality is all that matters! Your posts should be educational, and inspirational with a little mix of entertainment.  After all, that's what many social users are attracted to. 


Create fitness tutorials, make reels, maybe even upload blooper videos, or even share memes to stay relevant. To make your tutorials more useful, you can consider adding automated audio along with your text so that it engages your audience. For this, you should check out how to use text to speech on tiktok. To time save most influencers fcreate videos on one platform and then download them to upload on others. Being consistent with sharing content with your followers, as that's what will allow them to build recognition and remember you. 


Reach Out for Collaborations


Once you have built a decent following on social media and your followers have started engaging on your posts, it's time you should actively look to collaborate with fitness brands and other popular influencers. Do not wait for brands to reach out to you; rather, make efforts to pitch a collaboration with them, and you might get a lead. 


Or, you can invite other fitness influencers to do an interview with you or maybe a live workout session where you talk about the importance of fitness and different exercises. 


Final Words 


Becoming influential on social media is about connecting with what people want and need. All you need is your expertise, high-quality and useful content, communication skills, and consistency to pass on your passion and build a loyal following. 


Many people quit their journey abruptly when they do not get results, but that's exactly when you should push hard and keep on creating content.
