I quickly learned that if you want to get more exposure for your pics & grow your fitness brand, you need the right Instagram hashtags!!

It's the BEST way to get more likes, followers & comments.

But don’t take my word for it. It was proven in Dan Zarella’s Instagram study.

You can get these same results... I promise!

In this post, I'll give you my own private list of 87 hashtags that you can use for your fitness photos.

It will help you leverage hashtags WITHOUT looking like a hashtag spammer!

Most people make the mistake of adding all their hashtags to the description of their photo.

Don't do it!!

Instead, just leave a comment with the hashtags AFTER you’ve posted the photo.

Here’s the process.

  1. Upload your photo, add your description & post it
  2. Click comment & add a comment with all your hashtags

Yes, it’s that simple!

Your hashtags will look natural rather than looking like you’re trying to gain attention.

Now that you got your hashtag groove on -- what about your Instagram photos? Do those need help too?
