Deciding on a fitness routine is hard, especially when you’re first starting out. Luckily, the internet has made it significantly easier by providing large visual cues known as infographics.
These are essentially road maps to a more structured fitness routine. Something we could all use in our lives.
Let’s face it, writing lists is boring. It’s boring when we’re shopping for groceries and it’s boring when we’re trying to achieve significant workout goals. Visuals are way more fun. They’re more interactive, easier to follow, and they break down our activities into more actionable terms.
Are you aiming to lose weight? Add muscle? Eat healthier overall? You can find an infographic that fits well into just about any of your workout goals. And what’s more, they are all mostly found on Pinterest.
Being a visual learner myself, I’ve found that I can stick to a workout much better when there are pictures involved.
The beauty of Pinterest, among other photo platforms, is that there is such an extensive variety of options. Perfect for anyone needing an infographic about any topic.
There are even some that advertise gym shoes. Yes! Gym shoes!
It’s all pretty exciting to say the least.
Infographics don’t have to be created by super artistic people either, they can easily be produced by you or me using a website like Canva.com. And they are highly shareable.
Does anyone out there operate a fitness site? If so, you’re probably trying to improve your search engine optimization (SEO). A great way to do this is by producing shareable content—i.e. infographics. These visuals are great for generating backlinks to your website. Like Tony the Tiger says, GRRRREATTTT.
People love sharing infographics across social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, and recently Instagram. Especially in the fitness space, I’ve seen a ton of infographic content of late on Instagram. To be honest, I was getting kind of tired of people posting silly platitudes all day. Give me some substance!
Fitness infographics can provide this substance via statistics, tips, and a day-by-day or week-to-week workout goals chart. Whatever you’re looking for, just print one out and hang it on your wall above your bed so you can consult it each night and better prepare for the day ahead.
Getting organized is one of the biggest obstacles towards achieving your fitness goals, but infographics make things just a little bit easier by providing the necessary illustrations and motivation.
There’s even a website titled Fitness Infographics.com. Sadly, it hasn’t been updated since 2013 and still includes information on the Atkins Diet.
