5 Fitness Influencers You Need to Follow

Instagram has taken over fitness so we’ve listed the best of the best that offer everything-but-boring workouts.


Gyms haven’t been that reliable this last year as a result of the pandemic, and so the nation has turned to at-home workouts to keep fit. Whether it be making a punch bag out of a section of the sofa or putting tires on the end of a pole for a barbell, we sure have got inventive using the resources around us. 

While Joe Wicks has paved the way for fitness lovers on YouTube, a new wave of Instagram #Fitspo fans have also forced us to get active. With Instagram lives, everyone can join in at the same time, making it a personal fitness class for free. Where our Instagram bookmark section was once filled with travel inspo and beauty looks, it has now been taken over by fitness gurus and healthy food ‘porn’. We’re hoping it will stick long after gyms reopen. 

We get it: finding the best fitness accounts that project realistic goals is difficult, which is why we’ve done all the work for you. Below are some accounts that share all the best advice from inspirational quotes to training plans and even some dancing, so let’s get physical!
