@annavictoria

Anna Victoria

Why follow: The creator of The Fit Body Guides, Victoria's Insta feed is full of those familiar before and after shots of people who have successfully followed her plan and now look and feel fantastic. She also does brilliant mini workouts, such as this one, on her account which means you can get fit even easier (and it's free). 

Followers: 1 million.

Bodyism

Why follow: If you know anything about Bodyism, you'll probably think of those stretchy bands (pictured). They are incredible for helping tone muscles (we've tried and tested and they are good). On the Instagram account, you'll find tricks such as this on how to use the band and also why it's good for you. You can also buy Bodyism founder James Duigan's Clean & Lean Diet: The Bestselling Book on Achieving Your Perfect Body (£9).

@hannahbronfman

Hannah Bronfman

Why follow: Where do we start? Other than being a major fitness crush of ours, Bronfman's enthusiasm and energy for staying fit is enough to get even the most staunch hater of exercise pumped about working out. 

Followers: 331k.

@blogilates

Cassey Ho

Why follow: Cassey Ho of Blogilates is often super honest in her mini blog posts on her Insta account. She recently revealed that she'd got back into running and how she's maximised her fitness by doing interval training. And that's just one way she'll make you think about fitness differently.

@carlyrowena

Carly Rowena

Why follow: While Carly might have an enviable bod, she's also realistic when it comes to achieving your goals. As she says "Healthy is whatever feeling good means to you, last night I felt great holding a cocktail, today I feel great holding a dumbbell". Amen to that.

Followers: 87.2k.

@catmeffan

Cat Meffan

Why follow: Yoga teacher Cat Meffan might strike a good pose, but she's also great at dishing out the advice. Whether that's about posture or what she eats to keep fueled, there's a tonne of stuff you can learn right here.

Followers: 45k.

@shonavertue

Shona Vertue

Why follow: Other than her incredible yoga stunts, we love Shona for her honesty about the struggles that she faces and also teaching us how to approach the right exercise for ourselves: "It's more about acknowledging what exercise does and doesn't feel good for your body".

Followers: 51.1k.

@kayla_itsines

Kayla Itsines

@zannavandijk

Joe Wicks

Why follow: We'll be surprised if you hadn't heard of Joe Wicks, founder of the phenomenon that is The Body Coach, but if you haven't then we suggest you follow immediately.
