Hi!

I came across your page TEKTOK and noticed you had shared some fitness resources.

I recently published a data-backed study that details the usage of Fitness and Food related posts on instagram.

You can check it out here: Ultimate Fitness Guide

It has tons of interesting data, graphs and infographics, and I think it would be a great addition to your site that your audience would also find valuable.

In return, I can share your page with our huge social media following. Let me know if you're interested :)

Keep up the great work!

Morgan
