Last week, we shared with you the fit gals who are owning Instagram with their toned tummies, inspiring transformation reveals and seriously appetizing acai bowls (can we have too?). So we thought it’d only be fair if we showed the guys some love too because they’re killing the game just as much as their female counterparts.
Whether you’re in need of some fitspo, eye candy or healthy ideas for you foodies, these ‘gramers should do the trick.
Luckily we’ve done the hard work for you, and we’ve rounded up ten health and fitness guy ‘gramers you’re seriously missing out on. From a pro Boston Marathoner to some extreme yogis, you’re in for a treat.
Ready for your first fitness challenge? Start following these guys for a happier, more inspiring life. Seriously, one look at these feeds and you can’t help but think, “How do they do it?”
Jay Cardiello, @jaycardiello, The 20 Minute Workout- You might recognize this health expert, author and business guy from ABC’s My Diet Is Better Than Yours, where five contestants pick a trainer to help them get in shape through a fitness and meal plan. Check out this guy for quick videos on how to cure that sore throat with healthy foods.
Jason Sani, @jasonsani, The Healthy Food and Fitness Coach - If there’s one thing this man knows how to do, it’s whip up a healthy meal that DOESN’T taste like it’s packed with veggies or protein (we’re talking cookie dough waffles). His snapshots include his latest recipe creations, him rockin’ an apron in the kitchen, and hardcore training videos.
The Rock Johnson, @therock, The Hollywood Hero -- We know we really don’t have to explain who this celeb is or why you should follow him because his muscles are just as big as his fame. For behind-the-scenes fun, him being just ripped in general, and rock-solid goofiness, we’d be surprised if you haven’t hit follow yet.
Nicholas Coolridge, @moderntarzan, Parkour Genius-Don’t try this at home folks -- just sit back and be in awe of @moderntarzan’s seriously daring moves and tricks. If he can risk his life, you can go run. He posts sideways photos at some of the most beautiful locations in the world with his parkour partner that make you think, “Are they human?”
Kevin Hofer, @kdhoferyoga, Yogi Man- “Ommmm.” That’s what you’ll hear as you scroll through this zen guy’s inspiring feed. Not only are you getting mesmerizing photos, you’re also getting the highest quality pics because this yogi is also a photographer. From his living room to Vietnam, his talent is far from subpar.
Nicolas Jelmoni, @njelmoni, Cirque Star- We don’t have to convince you this acrobat knows his stuff -- his impressive bio alone will do that for you. Get the inside scoop on what all the Cirque de Soleil acrobats do behind the scenes, enjoy his stunning(ting) photos and be the first to see his super artsy costumes before curtain call. Did we mention he’s also a Broadway star? Seriously, what can’t he do?
Tapp Brothers, @tappbrothers, Double Dare-Devils -- You get not one, but TWO bros who know a thing or two about testing the limits. Feast your eyes on these beasts with their numerous videos doing some acro, holding some intense poses, and gettin’ fit on the beach. Take advantage of this two for one special because you really won’t find anything as entertaining as these brothers.
Anton Krupicka, @antonkrupicka, Rock Climber -- Ain’t no mountain high enough for this climber. His grid is chock full of rich sunsets from his point of view and biking trails. It’s easy to get lost with his photos, so come here if you need an escape.
Meb Keflezighi, @runmeb, “The Greatest Runners of Our Time,” Most of us can barely fathom running a marathon. What if we told you there’s someone who’s placed first in the most prestigious running competitions: The Boston Marathon, the New York Marathon AND the Olympics. Let us introduce you to Keflezighi. He's not only winning races, but our hearts as well with his inspiring story as a refugee.
Josh Cox, @joshcox, The Carb Connoisseur -- If there’s anything that’s magic to a runner’s ears it’s carbs, so we really like the way this guy thinks. Plus, he’s always posting pics praising his favorite runners from around the world who are reaching new lengths in racing, so look at this man’s profile to see someone who has a heart of gold.
