From fitness models to trainers to bodybuilding athletes, these women make us seriously jealous of their killer, strong arms! Here are 21 women on Instagram (in no particular order) whom you never have to ask, “Do you even lift?”
Why we’re following her: Not many people go from working at a clinic in Venezuela to being a huge Instagram star. Stories like Michelle Lewin’s are awesome because it just goes to show that hard work and dedication to your training (and diet) pays off.
Who she is: Mom, blogger, author, trainer, ABC’s Extreme Weight Loss specialist with Chris Powell
Why we’re following her: Heidi Powell is a super-fit mom who has an adorable family, including her husband and fellow fitness star Chris Powell. Her posts are awesome, and she’s totally real with her followers.
Why we’re following her: Krista Dunn, fit mom and IFBB Figure Pro, takes it to the next level. Whatever she’s doing works, so we definitely want to keep an eye on her diet and workouts for inspiration.
Why we’re following her: Talk about inspirational. A spinal cord injury in her teens left Tiphany Adams in a wheelchair, but that didn’t keep her from crushing it in the gym and showing us that anything is possible. This woman sets goals and demolishes them.
Why we’re following her: We know that getting arms like Jessica Gresty’s isn’t easy, but all that hard work and dedication definitely paid off. Her definition and striations show that she is on fleek with her diet and exercise.
Why we’re following her: She posts about her own workouts, but she really inspires us by talking about her clients and their personal fitness journeys! (We also wouldn’t mind shopping her closet for a week or two.)
Why we’re following her: Jessica Arevalo has a great body, and her attitude is inspirational. She’s all about being herself and doesn’t care what anyone has to say about it, which is how all strong women should be.
Why we’re following her: Alexia Clark motivates us to hit the gym and to take our workouts outside. She’s always posting about ways to train every part of your body with both traditional workouts and fun variations like this treadmill circuit.
Who she is: Creator of The Fit Body Guides, 12 Week Meal Plan Guide, 12 Week Training Guide
Why we’re following her: From wedding pictures to progress pictures, Anna Victoria keeps her Instagram fun and refreshing. It’s also pretty cool to see how well people are doing by using her training guides!
