My friend Jenny is really, really good at throwing together a home work out (me, not so much). She finds a lot of inspiration on Instagram and often tags me in the good (or funny) stuff. The thing you have to know about Jenny is that she does A LOT. And she still works out. She’s a full time mommy, wife, and professional. She’s basically supermom. So cheers to you Jenny! I truly find inspiration in the way you do it all.
Jenny’s been a catalyst in opening my eyes to the wonderful fitness world on Instagram. Instagram is FULL of fitness professionals basically giving you awesome advice for free. It’s a good place to find inspiration for your next workout, and while it doesn’t replace actually having a trainer, it can help you mix up a routine and try something new. Here are my favorite Trainers on Instagram:
Kettlebell Kickboxing by developed by Martial Artist Dasha Libin Anderson. The exercises on this feed are low impact, efficient and will definitely challenge you. If you don’t know what I mean, take a look at the lean leg sequence above (amazing!). Dasha shares these words on her website:
“Free of inhibition. Driven by innovation. Inspired by life.”
Jenny recommended Gina, and I have to agree that she’s pretty awesome. She posts short clips of exercises on her news feed, and combines fitness with motherhood. She’s a fitness and nutritional specialist who lives by these words:
“The principle is competing against yourself. It’s about self improvement, about being better than you were the day before.”
Shauna Harrison is basically my idol; she combined her academic interests with her passion for fitness. She has a PhD in Public Health and is sponsored by Under Armour. My absolute favorite thing, aside from her killer tips, is her self description from her Website:
“She moves through multiple worlds daily, but mostly she just moves.”
I love being inspired, especially through social media, which consumes so much of my life. It’s really nice to see positivity out there and fitness professionals who are inspiring others to reach their goals through thoughtful and relevant posts.
