Fitspiration: My Instagram Fitness Favorites

I've been working out consistently in the gym for a little over a year now. I owe a large part of my consistency to Instagram Fitness photos. On the days when I don't feel like/want to workout, I go to Instagram and look at fitness photos and videos for inspiration, and it works! Somehow,  the photos and videos  give me the kick I need to make it to the gym. Inspiration is powerful indeed! Below I'm sharing some of my favorite "fitspirations" with you. These ladies inspire me to lead a healthy and fit lifestyle. Enjoy!  

1. Get Fit With Nic: Nic should be the cover girl for the phrase "you don't need a gym to get/stay fit." She takes fitness everywhere she goes. You will see her working out at home, while she's out with her son, at the Culver City steps (for you L.A. folks) or at the beach.  Most of her exercises involve her body weight or resistance bands. I now plan to purchase resistance bands because of her. They are the perfect equipment for the days you can't make it it to the gym or if you workout outside the gym.

2. Mankofit is fit. Her body epitomizes strength and fitness. I love and enjoy her short yet super effective workout videos that she posts on Instagram. Though her workouts are intense she has a lot of fun doing them, she's always incorporating dance moves at the end of her videos. I have used many of her workouts in my routine by watching her videos. While her fitness photos are inspiring (to say the least) I love that she also has an informative action-packed Instagram page.

4. Natalie Jill Fit: Like Nic, Natalie also performs a lot of her workouts from the comfort of her home. Since working out and healthy eating go hand-in-hand, she also shares healthy recipes and tips on her page.

4. Sherica Holman is fit AND fashionable so if you love both, visit her page! Since I mostly workout at the gym, I like that her videos and photos show her at the gym using equipment I'm familiar with, but she also had videos and photos working out at home and elsewhere. In essence, Sherica is a style and fitness inspiration.
