Instagram is a necessity when it comes to keeping tabs on the celebrity set, seeking out fresh outfit ideas, and stalking friends’ exotic vacations; but best of all, the platform’s the ultimate place to find motivation to lose weight, get fit, and overall lead a healthier lifestyle—if you’re following the right people.
The digital world of #fitspo can be a totally off-putting place if your feed’s full of Instagram models and pseudo health experts. However, if you hit the little blue follow button for legitimate athletes, such as female tennis players, track and field greats, swimmers, and surfers at the top of their game, Instagram becomes a place for serious workout motivation.
Ahead, we have basketballers, swimmers, sprinters, dancers, and more super-fit, super-inspiring female athletes from across the globe to add to your Instagram feed. All you all you have to do is hit follow—and then hit the gym.
