  1. @therock. 24M followers. Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson has done a lot in his career including college and professional football, professional wrestler and champion, writer, actor, and fitness motivator. At 43 he’s tried many things and as far as we can tell, all of it successfully. If you are looking for someone to motivate you to keep going, who better than someone with that kind of history? He’s also, like many others on this list, actively involved in charitable efforts.

  2. @elliegoulding. 6.2M followers. Not only does she sing but this Brit recently became the face of Nike’s new fitness campaign. On her gallery, you’ll find a variety of pics, some music, some fitness, some fashion. If you like inspiration in fitness and being fab, Ellie’s account will likely be a blast for you to follow.

  3. @gisele. 6M followers. She was a Victoria’s Secret angel, she’s in a recent Under Armour ad where you see not only what a great model body she has, but how strong and fit her body is as well. Probably partly due to the fact she’s a yogi. Gisele’s married to super bowl winner, Tom Brady, and she’s a bit of a health and fitness inspiration on the sidelines.

  4. @tessholliday. 974K followers. Tess is a plus-sized fitness inspiration. She’s gorgeous, large, in charge, and a little bit in your face about everything. She’s also a fitness advocate. It doesn’t seem like she makes perfect choices. But if you feel you aren’t getting out into the world quite enough to enjoy your fit body, she’ll inspire the heck out of you.

  5. @progressive_calisthenics. 440K followers. If you love doing workouts where your body weight is used for your strength training, this is a great gallery to check out. They have a lot of videos and ideas for different places to take your workouts in the gym and away from the gym. It is all about strength, balance, and agility here.

    @lindseyvonn. 428K followers. Does her name sound familiar? That’s because she’s a world-famous Olympic downhill skier. She has also won four world championships. But in this Instagram account she shares many of the routines and moves she does off the slopes. These are what keep her agile and able to deal with the unexpected twists and turns, let alone the bumps, of a race to the bottom of the hill.

  7. @laurenfisher, 418K followers. Fisher offers a blend of CrossFit WODs and strength training moves for her followers. She also does trail runs and … well, basically whatever takes her fitness fancy at the moment. She’s just 21 years old and still a college student, but she must have had some great fitness inspiration growing up, because her brother GarretFisher is also a CrossFit fanatic (in a good way).
  8. @balletbeautiful. 396K followers. This may not be what you first think of when you imagine fitness accounts, but any dancer will tell you ballet is grueling. And it is also incredibly beautiful, as long as you aren’t looking at a ballet dancer’s bare feet. At this account, you’ll see the various poses and get instruction on proper form. There are also a smattering of flower and nature picture, and ones with her toddler.
  9. @twobadbodies. 365K followers. Do you like doing your workouts with a friend? This gallery of great workouts to do with a partner will give you some fun ideas and options. The problem here is these two ladies have just announced they are going to shift to separate accounts. The good news is you will get two new options for fitness inspiration and well – their BAD (beautiful athletic duo) gallery will remain in place. Follow the girls together or on their new accounts @JenniferForrester and @KaisaFit.
  10. @venuswilliams. 362K followers. You know her from tennis, but she’s an all-around athlete. Venus enjoys running with (or without) her dog, gym time, lifting, and of course, tennis. She does a lot of travel, so her fitness is sometimes on-the-go. Her competitive spirit shines through, but also her love of family and friends. Looking for a few tennis tips, follow Venus.
  11. @af85. 206K followers. Allyson Felix is an Olympic sprinter, but her fitness routines are not just for running and track meets, though there are plenty of those too. She also includes some gym time, walking, water sports, and oh yeah, lots of fabulous fit-wear items. You will also find pictures from the various places she travels for her meets and other engagements.
  12. @nohlsen. 155K followers. Do you love CrossFit workouts? Noah Ohlsen participated in both the 2014 and 2015 CrossFit Games. He also likes to include his dog in many of his posts and gym workouts. So if you are looking for ways to amp up your CrossFit WOD, or enjoy a few ideas on how to work out with one of your best friends, this site might be perfect for you.
  13. @themichellewie. 146K followers. Michelle Wie is a pro golfer and self-proclaimed hippie at heart. She also loves animals, food, and her Hawaiian background. Her posts cover a bit of all of those and more. She shows delicious and healthy meal options, golf tips, pet pics and gorgeous backgrounds. Her upbeat gallery may be exactly what you want when you finish a hard-fought battle at the gym or looking for a bit of inspiration to get up and go for a walk on some greenery.
  14. @kacycatanzaro. 112K followers. Did you see her as she qualified to become one of the American Ninja Warriors recently? In college, she was a gymnast. Now she’s “deadly” in what she can do. It is especially impressive when you know that she’s not even close to tall and probably weighs less than 100 pounds soaking wet. Still, she leaps high, dreams big, and follows her passion until it is held tightly in her grasp.
  15. @adamrosante. 62K followers. Rosante is the author of The 30-Second Body: Eat Clean, Train Dirty and Live Hard. His posts are all about balance, they include a variety of different physical moves for fitness, agility, and strength. You’ll find healthy but indulgent food ideas and just a bit of fun and adventure there as well.
  16. @the_southern_yogi. 61K followers. Lots of yoga moves can be found here, and about 35% of her posts are videos, not all of them about fitness. But most of them are. She also throws in some travel pics, some pictures of her furry friends, and some healthy food options.
  17. @shadesofjoy. 53K followers. Megan Joy is a calisthenics and yoga instructor based in Dubai. She also does many of her demo moves with another person for team exercising. Pretty girl(s), graceful moves, gorgeous landscapes, and the occasional healthy snack idea. What’s not to love about a gallery like that?
  18. @bretcontreras. 49K followers. Contreras is a strength coach, lifter, blogger, and author. One of his specialties is helping his clients create bullet-proof buns. About 40% of his posts are videos showing proper form for the moves he suggests.
  19. @biggalyoga. 39K followers. Okay, so you aren’t the perfect size, and you don’t know if you ever will be the size or shape of those fitness models. If you want some inspiration, and you love yoga moves, this is the account to follow. At some point, this woman decided it was time to get fit and flexible, and she’s been doing it on a daily basis ever since. If you wonder what consistent work can do for you, even if you never lose a pound, you’ll see the transformation in her gallery.
  20. @keonihudoba. 27K followers. Keoni created the Cyc workout method and is sponsored by Under Armour and VitaFusion. He is also a master trainer on NBC Sports RADIUS. He uses body weight for strength training and in many of the moves suggests using a partner – teaming up on such moves as stacked (one person doing their move on the back of the other) pushups. These teamed moves increase the level of difficulty and amp up the growth potential.
  21. @robinnyc. 26.5K followers. Robyn Arzon is a former lawyer, street athlete, runner, spin instructor, and all-around fitness enthusiast. She is also a type 1 diabetic (diabadass). She has some videos, and most of them are of her talking, answering questions, or offering motivation. In her pictures and videos you’ll feel her vibrant energy pushing you to get moving, or moving faster, as the case may be.
  22. @katyazharkova. 24K followers. Want to add some adventure to your workouts? Katya is a curve model, fitness enthusiast, and world traveler. Her posts inspire you to move your tail feathers to different locations where you can breathe deep, enjoy the view, and sweat out some of the stress and excess from your life.
  23. @curtiswilliams17. 22K followers. Are you looking to add a bit of intensity to your workout routines? Curtis Williams is a former NFL football player for the Baltimore Ravens. Currently, he’s a sports performance coach and fitness director for Under Armour Performance Center. On his gallery, you’ll find motivational quotes, sweaty snaps, posts from his fitness boot camps and some healthy eating ideas thrown into the mix.
  24. @jensinkler. 21K followers. Jen is a former USA rugby player, sprinter, trainer, kettlebeller, powerlifter, and fitness writer. She shows both single and partner moves for fitness. Along with her various fitness-related posts, she shares some fun fitness fashion, furry friends, and balanced living motivation.
  25. @negharfonooni. 17K followers. Neghar is another poster that likes to share a bit of reality. Not every pic is the perfect pose, and real life isn’t about always looking beautiful. One of her posts quotes John Steinbeck “Now that you know you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good.” That’s probably a great theme for this gallery. She’s cute, she’s sassy, she’s fun, but she doesn’t seem to feel compelled to always be perfect.
  26. @ultramarathon. 12.5K followers. This list would just not be complete without the crazy runner dude. He recently completed 50 marathons in 50 consecutive days. Yep, that’s the very definition of being a crazy runner dude. And the adventure just kept coming as he then went on to run a race through the South Pole.
  27. @joshuaholmes. 10K followers. He’s another ultramarathoner. He’s participated in 152 ultramarathons. Ultramarathons are ones that are longer than the 26+ miles of a marathon. Averaging the distance on his 152 equals approximately 52 miles each. Additionally, he’s run 33 100+ miles races, two 135 mile races, and three 500K (or over 300 miles) races. I guess you could say he’s a runner’s’ runner. Joshua is also the founder of Run It Fast.
  28. @hunterfitness. 9K followers. His page may not have as many followers as some, yet we found him on several different lists from various health and wellness sites as a great Fitstagrammer. He includes his dog in many of his workouts too. His fitness posts are all about mobility, agility, stability, and strength.
  29. @thebenbooker. 5K followers. Want to follow the guy who is practically the original definition of six-pack abs? Ben Booker is one of the Dailyburn.com trainers and has lots of fitness tips and helps for improving your core muscles as well as other parts of your body. His posts are mainly about family and fitness, but he brings great joy to both.
  30. @anjagarcia. 5K followers. Anja is another Dailyburn.com trainer, as well as a Nike trainer and a pediatric ICU nurse. Her posts are a nice mix of fitness, healthy food choices, inspirational quotes and messages, and bits about her life.
