We don’t know about you, but with the Olympics in full swing, our desk bound bodies are crying silent tears of fitness envy. We’ve watched the gymnasts front-handspring-somersault their way through a routine. The swimmers have used their toned arms to butterfly across the pool, and the pole vaulters effortlessly take flight, six pack abs included.
In fact, all these elite athletes are reminding us that it’s time we sign up for that half-marathon after all. Or at least, you know, step away from the donut. Regardless of the fact that we’ve been using our workout tights and sneakers as an avant-garde office trend, we’ve rounded up some cool Instagram accounts for you to follow and get some serious fitspo. From elite athletes, to trainers, yogis and ballet dancers, here’s nine fitness personalities that got us up and doing squats in the park this morning.
