15 Fitness Instagram Pages To Follow

I’m always on the lookout for new, unique, and inspirational fitness instagram accounts to follow so I figured I’d share my favorite 15 accounts…other than myself of course! 😉

1. Hannah Bower-Hall

@hannahbower2

Probably the most “typical” fitness account I follow.  She posts great workouts, has an amazing core guide.  As a physical therapist, I’m envious of her ability to educate on core activation and intra-abdominal pressure.  She also shares a ton of insight into family life and has her own supplement company as well! 

2. Jen Fraboni, PT, DPT

@docjenfit

Jen is an amazing person and physical therapist who posts a ton of educational content to keep you healthy and moving well!  Her approach doesn’t just include focusing on the area of symptoms, but she looks at the entire body and how lifestyle can impact your pain experience.  She has a ton of resources on top of her IG page including the mobility method, podcast, and blog posts!

Without motivation we wouldn’t get started with much at all. – But relying on motivation is where most people go wrong. – It’s not easy to follow the starvation diet or cleanse or detox. But for a brief time (7 days, 21 days, 30 days) it’s doable. – Motivation will help you power through. – But eventually your motivation will dwindle from a roaring flame to a dull burn, at best. Extinguished at worst, and more likely. At that point you’ll revert to your habits. What your mind and body knows best. – And if you haven’t spent time creating new, healthy, sustainable habits…you’ll go back to what you did before. Usually until you “undo” all the progress you just made (and then some), and you get another boost in motivation – sick, tired and disgusted – to try again. – Listen. – Don’t get woo’d into the quick fix or rapid results or 7-day solution. – They rarely work. And almost always do more harm than good. – Take your time. Be patient. This isn’t a race. No need to rush. Relax. Deep breaths. Give yourself some leeway. Room to breath and make mistakes. – Because mistakes will happen. And that’s ok. It’s part of the process. By planning to make mistakes along the way, you eliminate guilt when you go off track. And when you eliminate guilt, you eliminate the binges and feelings of failure that keep you from getting back on track. – Listen. – Take it slow. You’ve got all the time in the world. There’s no finish line. No race. Just time. – Take your time. Enjoy it. – #alwaysoptimal #sfinnercircle #syattfitness #flexiblediet #flexibledieter #flexibledieting #iifym #ifitfitsitsits #intuitiveeating #cleaneating #moderation #healthyeating #carbs #carbohydrates #carbcycling #keto #ketodiet #nutrition #moderation #precisionnutrition #easydiet #healthyfood #healthyliving #happy #happiness #smile

15. Lindsay Camerik

@lind.slaaay

Hey, I’m Lindsay, but some of my close friends call me Slay. I didn’t get that name because I exude confidence and badassery 24/7. In fact, it’s really been quite the opposite. Even though I post a lot of photos and videos of me doing handstands in cool places, confidently defying the status quo, the truth is that my life is and has not always been sunshine and rainbows and handstands in beautiful places (and it still isn’t just that). In my 22 years I’ve fought a lot of battles, most of them in my own head. I’ve struggled with clinical anxiety and depression since the age of 12. My entire adolescence was marked by my struggle with anorexia. I’ve seen more than my fair share of therapists and doctors and have spent several months of my life in treatment centers. It’s only been in the past few years that I’ve started to find some balance in my life, and my handbalancing practice has been the outlet I’ve always needed. I’m not saying all of this for pity or sympathy; I live a very blessed and privileged life and I am grateful every day for it. I’m saying this because I want you to know that the person you see on instagram living the seemingly idyllic life is, at the end of the day, a human. And all of us humans struggle, no matter what kinds of talents or privileges we may have. Underneath the filters, we’re all just conscious sacks of bones and organs on a giant floating space rock, trying to get by. For me, handstands just make it a little bit easier. #worldmentalhealthday

I’ve never met Lindsay, but it is amazing what influence one can have through social media.  A few years ago, I was struggling finding my passion again after retiring from gymnastics.  I didn’t realize that calisthenics existed.  I was scrolling through my personal Instagram and Lindsay’s training made me realize what I was missing.  Since then, her training has changed as she has grown.  Now she mainly posts hand balancing or fire spinning videos as compared to calisthenics when I first began following.  I will always be thankful that she introduced me to calisthenics without even realizing!  I know she is just a person who is doing what she loves and it shows.  I will continue to support her wherever her passions take her and you should definitely check out her page!
