If I were to decide on the one social media platform that inspires me the most,it would definitely be Instagram. Fully loaded with,almost,nothing but carefully captured work-out looks and food looking more than just flawless it’s probably one of the biggest assets to the current fitness movement. Following a real person on their fitness journey inspires and encourages way more than just seeing perfectly draped women in fancy magazines and on television. Because after all you get the feeling of knowing this person you’re keeping up to date with on Instagram and all the struggles and achievements she went through. You can get a ton of motivation with just a swipe of your finger, does it get any easier? I don’t think so.
The following five Fitstagrammers will be a goldmine if you lack motivation to get in shape or if you’re just on the look out for your next pair of kick ass sneakers.
These Australian gym-sisters seem to have lots of fun in everything they do and make me want to overhaul my workout wardrobe for real. Felicia and Diana are not only fit and strong, but also lead a successful business all while wearing the most sought after sneakers. During the past weekend they had their Instagram account hacked and stolen which made them almost lose more than half of a million of followers. Thankfully everything went back to normal this morning and they had their account restored.
This account is filled with motivational quotes with a little fun in between. Inspiring on a daily basis,this account is a great source if you need a gentle kick in your butt to get that work out going.
This former elite pole vaulter sure knows what she’s doing. Namely showing off her toned body by striking the most impressive yoga poses in the most beautiful places.With over 365k of loyal fans, this Aussie had to fight her own battle when she was diagnosed with chronic fatigue four years ago. After six months of living in a dark place, as she had to give up on her dream of Olympic pole vault, she got back on track again and has ever since then turned into huge inspiration for many people out there. Seems like Australia’s got quite a strong Instagram game going on.
To be motivated you have to feel comfortable,true or not? As one of the leading destinations for workout wear, Stylerunner is the exact right place to turn to if you fancy a new pair of tights or that special crop top you’ve been obsessing about. I also refer to them as the Netaporter of activewear, because their selection is seriously over the top. As you can see they also work closely with the basebodybabes. Double the inspiration.
This list wouldn’t be complete without Michelle Lewin aka La cuerpa. This Miami-based glute sensation doesn’t need any more introduction. With a pumping following of more than 5million people on Instagram, she’s that one person that makes me put that cookie down and do some squats. We had the great pleasure of meeting her in the streets of Cologne back in April. I guess you can imagine my happy face when we crossed her unexpectedly. She’s such a kind person. If you want to find out more about her incredible success, I suggest to watch this 15 min documentary.
