Five Instagram Accounts to Follow for Fitness Motivation

Many of us make a  commitment to get fit and live a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes, in order to stay on track, we need inspiration. Instead of having victoria’s secret angels set as your background on your phone or computer, I suggest you all to follow motivating accounts on Instagram feed. After years of observation, I’ve identified five best  Instagram accounts for you to follow so that you can achieve your fitness goals!

As mentioned in my blog posts, following accounts that continuously post pictures of abs with the caption “no excuses” can be self-inflicted, social-media-fueled torture. However, there are
​plenty of inspirational individuals that create accounts as a source  to motivate viewers to take that step towards their journey to a healthier lifestyle. Rather than just posting a picture of a girl in a bikini, these accounts give hints, tips and advice along the way.

Follow these five accounts and you’ll be craving the gym likes it candy

1. @Fitgirlfuel

Screen Shot 2015-04-24 at 4.49.16 PMWhat I love about Fitgirlfuel is the fact that, although this girl works out like a pro and has the body to show for it, she still eats the kind of food we want to munch on every single day.

Expect lots of shots of her personal progress, which she puts down to switching from being a cardio bunny to doing strength training. But she isn’t all about living in the gym, Fitgirlfuel also uploads loads of mouthwatering pictures of personal recipes for healthy alternatives to your favorite snacks too. Hint: if you’re a fan of waffles, you’ll LOVE her.

She also goes into real detail with every post so you can understand and replicate her success. What makes her such a worthwhile follow is that she tells it straight; to get to where you want to be, you’ve got to work hard at it, but don’t kill yourself doing it.

2. @jenselter


If there was ever a bum to beat Kim Kardashian’s, it’s got to be fitness motivator, @jenselter. Her Instagram account has amassed over 1.3 million followers all eager to see pictures of her working on her super-toned asset.

Although it might seem slightly narcissistic to look at pictures of her immaculate belfie’s all day long, there’s no doubt that it will get you thinking about how a little hard work can go a long way.

3. @muffintopless

1454804_10152137289142049_139690487_nIf you’re a fan of your fitness and healthy living mantras then you’re really in luck here. @muffintopless is all about letting people know it’s all about putting in what you want to get out of your fitness journey.

From doing an IronMan to uploading various workouts and routines that you can try at home, this girl means business and is genuinely pretty inspiring.

4. @yoga_girl

Screen Shot 2015-04-24 at 4.43.08 PMFor all of those who hate the gym and can think of nothing worse than sweating it out in a spin class, this is the motivational account for you. Rachel Brathen is a yoga teacher who travels the world taking pictures of her yoga moves.

Rachel comes across really well and is genuinely really helpful posting tips for improving your yoga as well as how tos of difficult moves. Although her pictures let you know that hitting the gym isn’t the only way to make a body beautiful.

5. @CleanEatz

CleanEatz is a joint account held by two regular girls who love eating healthily and working out and want to motivate others to do the same.

Pictures range from delicious-looking healthy meals, to motivational mantras and enlightening facts about healthy foods and how to change your diet for the better.

As well as their own pictures, they also shout out to other accounts and success stories so you can follow their transformation too.
