Why the #SocialFitness Movement matters: Since the @ShortyAwards launched the #SocialFitness Category (http://shortyawards.com/category/socialfitness) last year as an official part of the Shorty Awards, tens of thousands of influencers have started using the hashtag to bring awareness to individuals using Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and the social web to share milestones, healthful recipes, safe weight-loss strategies, exercise tips while gaining support from friends and followers.
Five exceptional and influential individuals have been chosen to select the winner of the #SocialFitness category and leverage their own followings to show that even when trying to live a healthier life, the little things matter.
