Looking for inspiration to finally start using that gym membership? Want to see ridiculously fit people just doing their thing? Well, have I got something for you – just get on Instagram for all the unattainable good looks and riches you could ever want to gawk at! Here’s a few of super famous and super fit people you can follow.

Usain Bolt is the fastest man alive – and some say he just might be the chillest, too. The retired sprinter is pretty active on Instagram, so if you want some truly entertaining content (like Bolt getting a champagne shower for his birthday), he’s your guy. 

2. Paige - @realpaigewwe

Are you looking for an Instagram that has the perfect combo of chiseled muscles and cute pets? Well, Paige’s got you covered! The professional wrestler posts lots of selfies showing her impressive physique, but she doesn’t forget to include her adorable dog Rocky.

3. Simone Biles @simonebiles

Simone took the gymnastics world by storm. But if she didn’t post occasional pictures that show just how strong she really is, you wouldn’t guess the bubbly and funny girl was such an accomplished athlete! When Biles isn’t posting funny selfies, she’s got pictures of her dogs – so really, you can’t go wrong.

4. Zlatan @iamzlatanibrahimovic

Can’t get enough of Zlatan? Neither can he! Or the other 27.8 million of people following him on Instagram. As far as this one goes, you’re really gonna see a lot of the footballer’s face. So if that’s your jam, why aren’t you following him already anyway?

5. Maria Sharapova @mariasharapova

Do you enjoy envying people you follow? Well then, Sharapova is simply perfect for you! Her Instagram is full of gorgeous photos with Maria in immaculate outfits, oh, and did I mention she’s super fit and pretty?

Honestly, I could go on and on forever with this list. There are just so many accomplished people who flaunt it on Instagram – so really, be careful with the following. Or, you know, just do it and don’t forget to compare your life to their highlight reel. Gotta keep up with the Joneses!
