Canadian Fitness Influencers

Fitness influencers are very famous in Canada, especially on Instagram. Their content is very varied with workout videos, before/after pictures, sports tips in Reels... The production of sports content has no limits and that's why many brands like it.

What do fitness influencers sell? Many different brands can be interested in fitness influencers to make a profit. In the first place, all the sportswear brands like Gymshark and Ocean Apart but also more classic clothing brands like Fitjeans that mainly target athletes.

The second big topic for fitness influencers is nutrition. Healthy food brands fight for the best fitness content creators because they are influencers who know, often, very well about the topic and do not risk giving false information.

Finally, the third big pillar is travel and adventure. Influencers are famous for being world travelers and fitness content creators are no exception. They don't work on shaping their bodies all year long to avoid going to the beach! However in Canada it's a little different because in addition to the beautiful beaches of the Caribbean, many influencers go exploring snowy mountains in the country. These trips are a little more dangerous but they allow you to have beautiful photos for Instagram (and that's priceless!)

Instagram Fitness Influencers

Living a healthy lifestyle, exercising daily and eating healthy has never been so trendy especially on social media. This trend is partly due to fitness influencers on Instagram who share a life full of energy, happiness and beautiful bodies. In short, the dream. While we're not sure if this routine is that simple, the content around a fitness routine has largely increased.

Fitness influencer accounts have very high engagement thanks to qualitative formats like workouts and healthy food recipes. Thanks to this engagement, they are easily highlighted by the Instagram algorithm. Working with a fitness influencer represents a great opportunity for a brand to reach a tight-knit and highly engaged community.
