The problem with TikTok Fitness

Tiktok’s growth has been exponential. While it can be hugely fun, for fitness content this is why the app can be problematic … 𝟏. 𝐁𝐚𝐝 𝐚𝐝𝐯𝐢𝐜𝐞 No matter which social media site you go to, you will definitely come across bad advice, however, given Tiktok’s demographics combined with the way the algorithm works, bad advice is extremely prevalent. What you want and what you need are often different things and unfortunately, the main goal of Tiktok seems to be to give users what they want; quick fixes like the lying towel exercise, lemon coffee, and abdominal belts to name a few. 𝟐. 𝐓𝐨𝐨 𝐌𝐮𝐜𝐡 𝐒𝐡𝐨𝐫𝐭 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐈𝐬 𝐁𝐚𝐝 While the short and simple fitness content is lacking, it absorbs too much content, often it is probably crammed into seconds. In the first place; “Everything should be made as simple as possible but not simpler”, when creators are given a few seconds to try to stand out on the platform, this often results in oversimplification and miscommunication. Secondly, there are many concepts in fitness that cannot be explained in seconds. When you get most of your information in small bits, it can be very difficult to understand the relative importance of each. You simply can’t delve enough into many important concepts with tiktok, which is why you should get your information from a number of places. 𝟑. 𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐀𝐫𝐞 𝐍𝐨𝐭 𝐈𝐧 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐥 All social media sites compete for your attention, often engaging in questionable activities to achieve this. The data indicates that tiktok is the best for establishing dependency between its users. And this compelling side of tiktok is something everyone needs to be aware of.
