Fitness is a hot topic at the moment. People admire lean, tanned, trim fitness models and seek to emulate their healthy physiques. They see how happy these fitness models look and realize that they too would like to lose a few pounds and reduce the risks of dying early.

Back in the ’80s and ‘90s, you could get away with putting on a few exercise videos and working out in front of your t.v. The world has moved on a long way since then, though, and we have a new generation of Instagram fitness models showing the world how you can live a healthier lifestyle.

Instagram is now the “in”-place for fitness models and trainers, many of whom have an incredible number of followers.

The main reason for Instagram’s importance isn’t image, however. Fitness models are on the platform because it gives them an easy way to reach out to their followers who they can encourage to follow through and meet their own fitness goals.

This can be as simple as sharing images of a healthy breakfast, with a caption linking to the recipe. It could be a video tutorial on how to carry out a particular exercise. Or it could be before and after shots, to motivate people to lose weight.

Some of the Instagram fitness models are more into “fitness,” while some are more “models” who enjoy showing off their toned and healthy bodies. We were able to cough out a list of the hottest Instagram fitness models are incredibly popular, having at least four million followers.

They’ll inspire you, Let’s get started.
