10 Proven Tactics To Grow Instagram Followers and Engagement

10 Proven Tactics To Grow Instagram Followers and Engagement | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it
It’s an exciting time to get to know Instagram. The popular photo-sharing app is fun, simple and growing—Instagram has more than 300 million users and sky-high user engagement levels.
And for marketers, it’s an especially interesting time.
UCanRow2's insight:

We LOVE Instagram for fitness marketing. It feels fresher and more relaxed than Facebook or pretty much any of the many other social platforms we're on.  From how we're working out to what we're eating to life on the road, it's much more of a look inside UCanRow2 than you'll see anywhere else.  We also love having the ability to interact directly with our followers and other posts - and posters - we like. Follow us at UCanRow2 if you want to check us out!

Give Members Consistent Experiences in Group Exercise Classes - Club Industry

Give Members Consistent Experiences in Group Exercise Classes - Club Industry | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it
SCW Fitness Education CEO Sara Kooperman spoke about group fitness and personal training trends to watch for in 2015 and 2016 during a digital presentation with members of the Gold's Gym Franchisee Association.
UCanRow2's insight:

"The reason (fitness brands like CrossFit and Tabata Bootcamp) are so successful is because the consumer can walk in and know what they're going to get," Kooperman said. "They want consistency and quality. They don't want somebody's individual class."

How the fitness industry turns people off exercise

How the fitness industry turns people off exercise | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it
"You'll never have sex again if you look like that!" screamed the personal trainer. His abuse was targeted at a woman who had made the mistake of entrusting him to help her exercise.

This story came from a client of clinical psychologist Louise Adams. "She was in pieces after that comment. It took her weeks to recover," Adams says.

This anecdote is just one of many examples that confirmed what Adams, who runs a weight management clinic, has long suspected. People don't avoid exercise because they don't like exercising. They avoid it because they don't like their bodies - and they fear the way other people will judge their bodies.

Why I Stopped Eating Clean

Why I Stopped Eating Clean | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it
Clean eating is certainly a very loaded term. If what I'm eating is clean, then other food must be dirty. If what I'm eating is good food, and not bad food, I can feel better about myself. Clean eating comes with a side serving of superiority. It mea...
UCanRow2's insight:

13 Reasons To Start Lifting Weights

13 Reasons To Start Lifting Weights | Indoor Rowing | Scoop.it

Maybe you're convinced you shouldn't lift weights because you prefer not looking like The Hulk. Maybe you figure you just wouldn't like it, since you're not one of those CrossFit types.

 

We hate to be confrontational about it, but frankly, you're wrong. Despite a prevalent allegiance to cardio machines for things like weight loss and overall health, strength training not only builds muscle but can prevent disease, improve mood and -- really! -- help you lose weight.

 

Here are 13 smart reasons to include a little work with the weights into your fitness repertoire.

UCanRow2's insight:

The best combo is intervals that include cardio and weights.  If indoor rowing or SkiErging are your thing, and we hope they are, we've got workouts for you here: http://ucanrow2.com/indoor-rowing-workouts/
