50. Christmas Abbott
If you have ever wondered if female weightlifters are capable, you haven't seen Christmas Abbott's Instagram profile. This girl knows how to lift extreme weights - you can see that just by looking at her body. All of her muscles are properly defined - in fact, her back and lateral muscles are bigger than what even some male athletes have. Her Instagram is currently sitting at around 391,000 followers, so do check it out.
To improve your diet, Abbott recommends that you only skip on two types of products - alcohol and processed foods. Other than that, you can consume all of the healthy proteins, carbs, and fats. For exercise, Abbott recommends short, high-intensity training sessions that can easily melt your fat away, and improve your musculature. HIIT sessions can work wonders for this type of training, as well as basic compound exercises at the gym.
49. Emily Skye
Emily Skye is another successful and popular Instagram fitness celebrity. She is obviously in the shape of her life - she looks happy, and is radiating with positive energy in the above photo. She is the most famous celebrity to be featured at this point of this article, at 1.8 million followers - that's several times more than some of the other celebrities.
Emily is neither vegan nor paleo - she tries to eat healthily, but also includes snacks in her diet. Clean eating to her is all about feeding your body with the right nutrients at the right time. She stays away from as much packaged and processed food as possible - so no microwave dinners if you follow this diet. If the packaging lists ingredients you don't know or can't even pronounce, then that's a processed food which you shouldn't be eating.
48. Michelle Lewin
Michelle Lewin knows a thing or two about social media - that's why her account currently has over 4.1 million followers and is growing on a daily basis. She is so good at keeping her body in a perfect shape that she has been on the cover of several fitness magazines. If you check out her Instagram pictures, you'll see that maintaining a form like that is no walk in the park in terms of how much work, routine, and maintenance it requires.
Michelle uses a split routine for her exercises, meaning different days in the week are for training different muscle groups. Monday is her back and biceps day, which includes exercises such as chin-ups, rows, T-bar rows, dumbbell curls, EZ bar curls and straight bar curls. Tuesday is her hamstrings and calves day, which includes exercises such as lying leg curls, seated leg curls, deadlifts, seated calf raises and standing calf raises.
47. Ana Cheri
Ana Cheri obviously knows how to lift - and it seems that she lifts on a frequent basis, looking at her photos.

Ana is a huge fan of the "leg day," which you can clearly see from her photos. She says "I'm a huge fan of "leg day" and I'm always doing lower body. I can't get enough of it. And I also deadlift. My max was 205 lbs. and I'm like 125 lbs. I was really proud of myself on that one!" Ana also recommends doing the "Swiss Ball Leg Curl" exercise, which is great for toning and shaping your lower body muscles.
46. Jenelle Salazar
Jenelle Salazar is a pretty unique type of fitness celebrity. Her videos are mostly centered on providing information to her fans about unique and one of a kind exercises that Jenelle comes up with on her own. Obviously, her exercises are effective, as otherwise, she wouldn't be having 576,000 followers on her Instagram profile. Just looking at her ab definition shows that she is serious about her workouts.
Her recommended workouts are strength training (via weightlifting and whole body workouts), as well as kickboxing. Judging by the size and definition of her abs, Jenelle is obviously keeping a clean diet, but she does try to keep a high protein intake on her workout days. For optimal muscle gains, you can either try to use whey protein or if you want to save money, you can consume animal-based proteins (like sardines, chicken, and eggs).
45. Anna Victoria
Anna Victoria is the first Italian fitness guru to be featured in today's story. She has a strength-training program of her own, which she calls the "The Fit Body Guide." Anna has over 1.1 million followers on her social media accounts. Her fans love learning about and following different kinds of body-positive transformations, which she sometimes features on her account.
Anna recommends eating a lot of bright fruits and vegetables (such as oranges, bananas, and apples). She also admits to splurging on a regular basis - she has a cheat meal every week, and since she lives in Italy, her cheat meal involves pasta and wine (you can customize this to your local cuisine). "Every cheat meal in Italy was pasta caccio e peppe (pasta with cheese and peppers)," Victoria says. "In the U.S., it's usually Mexican food."
44. Brittany Perille Yobe

Most of the time she is at the gym, she is doing various exercises to help her round up her butt - she also uses her Instagram account as a place to host instructional videos, which is why she is so popular at the moment.
About her training, Britany says "I train my glutes up to three times a week for up to an hour and fifteen minutes with about 10 different glutes exercises that isolate the muscles by working them from various angles." After her morning lifting, she says "I go back to the gym in the afternoon or evening to do 30 to 45 minutes of cardio, plus stretching, yoga, and foam rolling because it alleviates soreness and aids in muscle recovery."
43. Jen Selter
According to some people, Jen Selter has one of the most famous "booty pops" on Instagram. That's an objective fact because her booty actually has her own hashtag - #Seltering. Jen's amazing body, workout routines, and photos have helped her Instagram account soar to over 10.4 million followers - which is more than even what some Hollywood actors have.
Jen believes that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is why she begins her day with some egg whites and toast or oatmeal with fresh juice.

She eats a variety of food - looking at her Instagram photos, she is obviously eating some kind of Paleo-based diet, with a lot of animal-based proteins (meaning chicken breasts, pork chops, and eggs), combined with a lot of leafy, green veggies and rice. Eating healthy carbs is very important if you want to have proper muscle gains. Massy has also posted photos of her eating mushroom salads and other similar food.
41. Estelle Archer
Estelle has a unique life story. Although everyone, including a lot of today's featured celebrities, have had weight problems in the past, Estelle is special because she has managed to shrink from a size 16 to a mind-blowing size 6. That's 10 different numbers in size. She uses her Instagram account to share photos of her amazing transformation to her fans - who now count more than 215,000 followers.
According to Estelle, one of the most important things in improving your health is to plan your meals. "I cannot emphasize the importance of meal planning enough! It will help anyone feel more in control of their schedule and if they just set aside an hour on the weekend to prep and plan a few things I swear it would help considerably," Estelle says.
40. Cassey Ho
Cassey Ho is all about body-positivity. The body-positive movement is about teaching people to love and accept their bodies for what they are - this is because of the belief that people can progress further in life, only after they have accepted themselves. Cassey is also a certified fitness instructor and pilates fan. Her Instagram account is absolutely exploding, and she currently has over 1.3 million followers.
For Health and Fitness, Casey seems to be following the mainstream advice - she tries to keep a clean diet (that means eating fruit, vegetables, and clean sources of protein and fat) while working out every week. For the workouts, she says it is important not to get burned-out, which is especially easy to do if you are a beginner. Compound exercises are your best bet towards building a healthy body.
39. Katrina and Karena
Here is a different kind of Instagram channel - instead of being the personal account of a single girl, this account is being run by 2 California-based girls Katrina and Karena. Karena is a triathlete and a model, while Karena is a health science student, which means the two of them are great at supplementing and helping each other out - one with the exercises, and the other with proper diet advice.
According to a recent interview, the duo said that having balance in your diet and exercise is the key to having good health. They told the interviewer, "Balance. Never go to one extreme or the other. Finding a balance in all areas of your life from fitness, diet, work, friends, family, and solo time. A balance in all these areas are all important to living a healthy and happy life."
38. Rachel Brathen
Rachel Brathen is a different kind of fitness superhero. She isn't into weight lifting high-intensity interval training sessions as much as the other girls on today's list. Rachel is a world-famous yoga instructor. She is obviously excellent at her job and knows how to take social media-worthy photos, which is why she currently has over 2 million followers on her Instagram account.
Rachel doesn't believe in labels, which is why she doesn't call herself "vegan" anymore. She says "I still eat a mainly vegan diet-I don't eat meat or eggs and I don't drink milk." She believes that putting labels on yourself is just going to limit your choice and future progress, which is not something you like to do when it comes to your health. She now eats a whole foods-based diet, lots of fruits and vegetables, some whole grains like quinoa and barley.
37. Tanya Poppett
Tanya Poppett is an Australia-based fitness instructor. She uploads a lot of videos on her Instagram account of her exercises. Some of her videos are extremely difficult to watch, due to how intense her workouts are. Watching them, you can feel how much energy she puts into her workouts - that's why she now has one of the hottest bodies on Instagram - to the satisfaction of her 351,000 followers.
Tanya believes in quality over quantity when it comes to training. "High-Intensity Interval Training, Strength Circuits, and Speed Based Cardio Workouts are my favorite ways to train. I love this type of training because it is a quick and effective way to boost your metabolism and condition your muscles without placing too much stress on your body," wrote Tanya in a blog post for IsoWhey.
36. Lauren Fisher
Lauren Fisher is a college student and a CrossFit competitor, but her Instagram profile and photos have a remarkable girl-next-door feel to them. Being as popular as she is, and still keeping that kind of feeling to your web presence is a great achievement - it is what makes her so much more relatable to her 690,000 social media followers. She also uploads some silly/funny pics in addition to her fitness photos.
A typical breakfast for Lauren includes fish oil tablets (for the added Omega-3 benefit), 2 eggs + 1 egg white + 2 chicken breakfast sausage trader joe's or turkey bacon + lots of veggies + oatmeal. For lunch, she has 4 ounces meat or fish (I try to stay away from red meat because it's high in fats, but might eat it 1 to 2 times a week) + 1 serving rice + guacamole + veggies or salad.
35. Natalie Jill
Natalie Jill is a seriously happy and fun girl - you can just see the positive energy radiating from her photos. She, just like many other stars, didn't start out with her goal body - she actually started 60 pounds heavier, and slowly lost the wait as her account and follower numbers progressed further. She is a single mom and a functional fitness trainer from San Diego, California. Her account already has over 513,000 followers.
Natalie's advice can be summed up to: think of how your ancestors ate 10,000 years ago - if they didn't eat it, you shouldn't either. She also says "Make sure all of your meals contain a balance of healthy carbohydrates, healthy fats, and proteins. If you need help with this my Jump Start Programs are a GREAT place to start as it teaches you ALL about this."

Anyway, Kayla is a certified fitness training, that has an almost cult-like following on social media, of over 6 million followers - that's the most of any featured up till now. Many of her fans swear by her "Bikini Body Guide," which has helped thousands of people.
She tried not to follow any of the fad diets - instead, she follows her own healthy food regimen. One of her recommendations lists poached eggs and an avocado and tomato for breakfast. For snacks, you can have strawberries and cream smoothie, which can be made by using 160g of strawberries, 250ML of low-fat milk, 150g of low-fat yogurt, and 1 scoop of protein powder - in her case, vanilla flavored.
32. Lyzabeth Lopez
Lyzabeth Lopez is a Canadian-based trainer, that's famous for a few different reasons. First of all, a lot of her advice and workouts are centered on offering girls the best ways possible to achieve an hourglass figure. An hourglass figure is when your hips and chest/back area are larger in diameter than your stomach/love handle area. She has over 2 million followers.
One of Lyzabeth's most popular posts is about how to lose weight on a vegan diet. She says that anyone can easily lose weight on a vegan diet, by just following her advice. First of all, vegan practitioners need to reduce the amount of refined foods in their diet. After that, she recommends that you add more veggies to your diet, as well as to get used to using dairy alternatives, as vegans are not allowed to eat any kind of animal-based food.
31. Amanda Bisk
Amanda Bisk is an Australian goddess - just look at her Instagram pictures, her body looks amazing in all the different kinds of outfits and weather.

Amanda trains every day. Her basic training takes only 20 minutes, and is based on several whole-body exercises, such as "high knees, planks, butt kicks, froggers, burpees, jump squats, walkouts and reverse lunges."

She also posts a lot of selfies in fun fitness clothes.

For the first day, you can have scrambled egg whites, sautéed collard greens, turkey bacon, brown rice, green tea with lemon for breakfast, and grilled chicken breast with garlic spinach and half a cup of baked yam for lunch.
29. Lita Lewis
Lita Lewis is a triathlete that also calls herself the "thick fit" trainer. That is probably the best way to explain her figure, as she is obviously strong and well trained, with well-defined muscles, but at the same time, she is not trying to be "thin" by today's meaning of the word. She posts a lot of plyometric exercise videos and motivations quotes that keep her 420,000 worldwide followers entertained.
Like most other fitness models, Lita recommends having a lot of healthy protein after finishing with intense workouts, so that your body can recover and grow more muscles as soon as possible. "I would suggest protein post strength training. Essentially, when you're working out the muscles and you're doing all the strength training, you have to consider the muscles and what it's doing is breaking down the fibers," Lita says.
28. Jessamyn Stanley
Jessamyn Stanley is not like the other instructors featured in this story. Her Instagram account is not famous because of her weight lifting or weight loss progress - Jessamyn is in the body-positive movement, which means she accepts her body as it is. She is also awesome at yoga, which shatters some peoples beliefs that certain yoga poses and inversions can't be done by overweight people.
Jessamyn labels her movement "fat yoga." She explains it as, "I say 'fat yoga' and to me it's like, being fat and practicing yoga. For some people 'fat yoga' means only fat people can practice this style of yoga. I'm not a separatist, but some people think it's important for us to have our own thing. My problem with labeling fat yoga is that it turns into the idea that there are only certain kinds of yoga that fat people can do. And that if you're not doing fat yoga that you're not allowed to do yoga."
27. Holly Rilinger
Holly Rilinger's Instagram account - @hollyrilinger, serves as a daily reminder that everything is possible with your body if you put the time and effort to do it. She uses her Instagram account not only to upload exercise and inspirational photos and videos, but to also upload selfies and surfing pictures, since she is a big fan of surfing, and the beach in general.
Ever since she began to get serious about her health, Holly has become a morning person. She said in a recent interview, "I LOVE to sleep in. But I also love to work out in the morning because it sets the pace for my whole day," she says. "So, I suppose I've made myself a morning person because the rest of my day hinges on it." Beginning the day early is important for anyone who is serious about improving their lifestyle.
26. Mary Helen Bowers
Unlike most of the other women in today's list, Mary Helen Bowers is not a professional weightlifter, bodybuilder or even a fitness instructor. Mary is a ballerina, as you can see in the above photo - that's why her figure and muscle mass are much smaller than the other featured girls. Ballerinas have to keep a low weight in order to be as nimble and agile as possible.
She explains her diet, "For breakfast, I will have coffee and 1) slow-cooked oats with some raw nuts and fresh fruit. In the winter it tends to be a lot of citrus, especially grapefruit. I also eat an 2) apple every day, because they are so easy, fast and full of fiber. For lunch, I usually try to have a 3) large salad with a ton of fresh greens, veggies and a side of grilled chicken, salmon or steak and some wheat bread."

Paige starts her mornings with a bean burrito and avocado, or plant-protein smoothie (usually hemp protein). She eats a lot of carbohydrates, the good ones, like the sort found in rice, sweet potatoes, and oats. Vegetables are always on the menu, usually in the form of tossed salad. Fish is also a very important part of her diet as a source of protein. She is a pescetarian (someone who eats only fish or other seafood but not the meat of other animals).
24. Stephanie Buckland
Stephanie Buckland is a ripped fitness model much like Hathaway. She grew up in southern Oregon, her childhood is best described as modest because by the age of 15 she had already had four jobs and was homeschooled. Buckland was always physically active, doing activities such as running, surfing and playing soccer. Her diet at the time was clean, mostly eating vegetables that her mother grew and game meat that her father hunted.
On the long run, this took a toll on her health because she didn't consume a sufficient amount of carbs for her very active lifestyle. Later on, she started eating properly and got into a much better form. Her training is pretty rigorous, six days a week, and her diet is pretty strict as well. Breakfast mainly consists of eggs followed by fish or chicken breast, fruit and protein powders.

After being fed up with the bad decisions in life, she began to lift weights and work on improving her diet. This had a tremendous effect on her mood and wellbeing and made her consider a career in the fitness industry. Soon after, her social media exploded. Now she receives emails, on daily basis, from her followers who tell her how much she helped them improve their lives. Rice has her own website, where she offers advice about fitness and proper diet.
