Follow these tips and you will see a consistent growth in your following.

2) Personalization. You are looking to gain an audience of humans with similar interests as you, so be yourself. Use language and visuals that would be appealing to you and also to your followers.
:YOU are the brand, so focus on what makes YOU different and the followers will come.
3) High Quality. Grab followers attention with quality images. No one wants to see an iPhone 4 mirror picture in a sweaty gym mirror. Focus on your content and be better than your competition. Use a nice camera and learn how to use it properly.
4) Connect. Connect with the community. The exercise industry is very niche and everyone is there for the same reason. Join the conversation through hashtags and by following other pages. Trade shoutouts for smaller pages and contact pages with large followings about buying shoutouts.
5) Consistency. Just like a scheduled TV sitcom, followers become familiar with content released in a timely manner. Pick a time to post your content and do it daily.
If you skip your time slot, you skip an opportunity to validate yourself to your followers. Consistency is key. Schedule ahead of time and optimize your posting time to increase engagement.
