what to do


  • Check your Background

Keep your selfie game strong by ensuring the background of your snap is free from clutter, there is nothing worse than a messy room detracting from your gains, amiright?! If you’re opting for a sneaky bathroom pic make sure the mirror is clean, or if your posting from the gym be sure to check you’re not snapping any unsuspecting photo-bombers; you’re the star after all!

  • Work them Angles

You want to show off all your hardwork by finding which angle makes you look your best; that’s a given. Use lighting and camera placement to your advantage to enhance your pic; a good go-to to try is holding the camera slightly above your head and off to the side, but have yourself a little photo shoot and see what works best!

  • Location, Location, Location

Some of the best fitpics feature an awesome scenic background; take inspiration from Instagram superstars such as Jen Selter and venture outside and get snapping. There’s nothing wrong with a good old fashioned mirror selfie, but abs and #views are a winning combo!

  • Fake it

While we are all for a little bit of fine tuning when it comes to selfies, don’t overdo it. There is nothing worse than too much airbrushing distracting from all your gains! Followers of your fitness journey will respond to genuine-looking  posts so remember less is more. grow


  • Be Shy!

We get it, it can be a little daunting including your face in a post-workout snap,  but don’t be shy! Studies show that pictures featuring faces get 38% more likes, so go easy on the cropping fam!
