With so many personal trainers and fitness gurus vying for your likes on Instagram, it can be hard to know who to follow.
Luckily for your time-poor ass, we’ve trawled through roughly one bazillion pictures of rock hard abs and flexing biceps on your behalf. After much deliberation, here are our main best favourite fitness gurus in Instagramland.
If you like yoga and you like bootcamp-style workouts, I think you'll dig this metabolic mobility move called the DOWNWARD DOG TO MOUNTAIN CLIMBER! The first move stretches your calves, hamstrings, lats, and upper back. The second move works your abs, hip flexors, and shoulders plus it gets your heart rate up. Do 10 total reps for a quick energizer or warm-up. Or plug it into a circuit as a core or mobility move. Tag/challenge someone who wants some yoga on steroids, ha! Rocking the new @reebok @reebokone ZPump Fusion running shoes. #Yoga #YourBodyIsYourBarbell #MountainClimber #DownwardDog #Mobility #Metabolic #Fitness #Instafit #Fitspo #Fitspiration #BJGaddour #GetPumped #ReebokONE #Bootcamp

One of our finest @laurenschube is a #KBIA certified #kettlebellkickboxing instructor, visiting from #statenIsand where her KB studio is killing it! We had her demo the #kettlebell #trueHighPull —>hinging through the hips, not squatting or full extension stretching… Check out her perfect and seemless form! And add this to your #workout mix today! Especially pre-turkey day why not do 100 of these and then go get your #apple pie?! Or better yet throw on a #kbbody #scorcher or #7daylean #workout — making your #goals #fit & #fun from home.
