Variety is key
Fitness and Sport are two heavily intertwined fields, both presenting an opportunity for athletes to attract an ever-varied audience. Combining the excitement of your chosen sport and the lifestyle benefits of a fitness profile can be the foundation of a very successful venture. For example, if you’re a BMX rider, videos of you competing at events and providing tips and tricks will pique the interest of fans. However, including your training and preparation methods for competitions will also provide a fulfilling behind-the-scenes experience for your followers. BMX rider and drift driver Mark Webb is an example of a sportsperson who combines athletic excellence with relatable behind-the-scenes insights.
Personal trainers can bring a huge amount to the table in terms of variety. Everything from workout schedules to diet plans, one-to-one sessions and lifestyle content is open to them. For many athletes, this kind of knowledge comes with the territory and can be an invaluable tool for creating personal bonds with your fans. The Go Live feature on OnlyFans provides you with the ability to stage a group workout session or nutritional tips in real-time.
