    The holy day of fitness, Tuesday is the highlight of the week for all healthy hopefuls looking for a bit of inspiration. Follow this hashtag for some serious transformations, from impressive weight loss to motivational muscle gain. #goals

    Short for ‘Fitness Family’, #fitfam is designed to bring together members of the fitness community so they can support one another on their #fitnessjourney (yes, that’s another one for you, for free). You’ll also find lots of team photos of friends working out together – great for exercise inspiration if you’ve got a gym buddy on hand.

    Dedicated to the ladies out there who understand the benefits of lifting a few weights (such as better sleep, building muscle and burning calories to name but a few). It’s not so much about bulging muscles but more showing off hard-earned definition, so don’t be put off by the name.

    No, not a reference to a digitally-savvy mass murderer. #deathbykayla relates to Kayla Itsines, founder of the now internationally-acclaimed Beach Body Guide (BBG). Kayla’s series of 30 minute work outs are well known for being seriously tough, so expect plenty of sweaty selfies that will motivate/guilt trip you into going to the gym. 

    The shorter, snappier version of #fitspiration, a hashtag for all things health inspired. A rainbow of mouthwatering healthy meals, rippling muscles and inspirational quotes, #fitspo is like a one-stop shop for everything relating to the weird and wonderful world of fitness.

    Promoting body confidence among female fitness devotees, #strongnotskinny is all about celebrating ‘real’ figures instead of super-skinny ones. Use this hashtag for visual guidance on how to take the perfect gym-mirror selfie.

    Short for ‘If it fits your macros’, #iifym is an eclectic mix of ripped bodies and delicious healthy plates of food. Based around the concept of counting macros (i.e. macronutrients) as a way of healthy eating, this is one for the more hardcore fitness fanatics.

    Find out how to count macros.

    That’s insta for Instagram, not instantly – sadly. Like #from fitspo, you’ll find all manner of fitness-related posts, from protein-packed snacks to the occasionally brilliantly-toned belfie.  

    It may be used ironically from time to time, but generally #eatclean is the best hashtag for finding unbeatable healthy eating inspiration. Many of the pictures come with links to recipes, making it easy for you to replicate them at home and keep on track for your workouts.
