Given the impact social networks are having on the fitness industry, it’s a must to take advantage of hashtags to help you grow your fitness business. Before we begin a conversation on the top fitness hashtags, we should first ask if you know what a hashtag is and why they are important? A hashtag is simply a way for people to search for conversations that have a common topic. Given this, are you now concerned that conversations are happening among your existing (and future) customers that you are not even aware of?  Think hashtags are just a twitter thing? Guess again, they are used to search Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest as well.

Hashtags are a great way to create a brand for your business. For example, Lululemon has uses the hashtag #TheSweatlife to combine a lifestyle image along with their key branding message. The team at #besomebody  has been effectively using signs and tshirts that have their hashtag on it.

With conversations happening virtually every second it can sometimes be overwhelming to keep track of what is going on. We recommend starting with focusing on the top conversations, often referred to as what is trending. Ready to get join in on the conversation? We asked the Sweti team to put together this list of our favorite fitness hashtags so you can join in on the conversation:
