What does Fitspo mean?

Inspiration for Fitness

Fitspo stands for “fitness inspiration”. It’s all about finding motivation to get healthier and fitter. Mostly, it’s used when talking about women who are focusing on becoming stronger rather than just thin.

Generally, the word Fitspo is used with a hashtag (#) on social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. It’s usually attached to an image, often showing a woman working out, along with an inspiring message such as “you got this” or “strength is beauty”.

The aim of these Fitspo images is to present a fitness goal that other women can aspire to reach. It’s about showcasing the power and strength of the female body, and encouraging women to aim for physical fitness rather than just being slim.

However, the Fitspo trend has faced some backlash. Critics argue that it promotes unrealistic body ideals, making women strive for a body shape that may be unattainable for many without resorting to unhealthy practices.
