If you’re always on the go, and you like to keep yourself updated on fitness and/or nutritional topics, Instagram is the social media platform to join.

Instagram has so many fitness accounts that you can follow, it’s almost impossible to choose which ones to base your fitness goals off of.

That’s okay. As always, I’m here to help you in that department. I’ve picked out the best fitness Instagram accounts, and I’m going to list them below, in addition to a brief summary of why I think they’re the best. The list will range from trainers to jocks, with celebrities in the mix, too. You’ll get a range of workout videos for your reference, along with suggestions of training plans that work and training plans that fail.

Plus, the motivation these accounts provide its’ followers with is incredible!

Okay, let’s get started on this fun journey of picking and choosing which ones to follow!

**Keep in mind, each account will have its own focus. Some will primarily be about cardio, whereas others will primarily be about strength and conditioning. **

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

There’s no surprise that Dwayne makes the list of Top Fitness Instagram Accounts to Follow; He’s quite literally a fitness hero.

Dwayne "the rock" JohnsonHis workouts are not easy, at all. Actually, his workouts are quite aggressive and brutal. For example, who uses chains during workouts? Dwayne does!

On the bright side, Dwayne tries to inspire and motivate his viewers to achieve their fitness goals by trying their hardest. He encourages his followers to push themselves until they can’t push any further, so that their goals can be achieved quicker.

In addition, he loves to post workout videos for his fans to take a look at. The fans that can do what he does tend to use these videos as if Dwayne were their personal trainer. The results of these workouts are awesome. And, if you are unable to use the weights that Dwayne does, that’s okay. All you have to do is change the weight you’re lifting, and just keep following the video as he exemplifies.

If you need a kick in the ass, choose to follow “The Rock.”
