HIIT, TRX, 2XU: not just a string of meaningless all-caps to you? Then you want Jill. She’s a whiz when it comes to curing sore muscles, stocking supplements, and making creatine go down like Kool-Aid.

Wendy Ida

Lucille Ball once said: "Love yourself first and everything else falls into line." After I had gained 50 lbs and started lifting weights to lose weight, I fell in love with way my body looked and felt. I realized that feeling good about myself benefited not only me, but everyone else around me. It was a turning point, and a path to a totally new career and life that I couldn't have foreseen. ⠀ ⠀ #EmbraceChange⠀ #WhoDoYouLove?⠀ #HealthAndFitness

We hear it all the time: “It’s never too late.” But only after scrolling through Wendy’s feed do we actually believe it. A superstar body builder at 65, she didn’t even get started on her rock-solid regimen until 43.

There is always one bright light you can always look up to. ☀️😇⭐️ (Tag someone who is a constant light you can always count on even when things look dark or gloomy)

Behind many a chiseled celeb is a method developed by Tracy Anderson. Here, you get the intel into what makes the fitness pioneer tick (hint: It’s pizza) and can even steal a few of her moves.

This was written for me 🤷🏼‍♀️Couldn't resist the photo opportunity in a little Cornish seaside village when we took muvver back yesterday💙 Btw I'm not that strong don't want to big myself up but am definitely short👊🏼😂 What say you @hannahbrightwellness ✌🏼😚 . . . . . #fitlife #fitfam #fitness #strongereveryday #health #livelife #fitstyle #shortass #charlestown #cornwall #photoopportunity #fitover50

Ageing is inevitable. Though it’s by no means a flaw, it is a very personal journey to self-acceptance. Tracy knows this, celebrates it, and floods her feed with the effects of it. Best version of you, here you come.

Just checking my Garmin… * PB week for me! 😃 First ever 300+km cycling week (349.5km to be exact) – yeh! And first ever 1000+km cycling month (and still a few days to go) – double yeh! * I have a very long journey ahead of me if I am ever going to become a decent enough cyclist to complete a full ironman triathlon. But, this last week has given me a boost to my confidence – despite my fall 😢. I have now exceeded the total distances on the road that I achieved in both 2016 and 2017 – in 3 months! * When I made the decision on 1 January to seriously give this thing a go, I knew it was going to be hard for me. And, it is very very hard. And, I will be training even harder as the year progresses – I haven’t even really got started with running or swimming yet! * Just need to continue to remind myself of the Lao Tzu quote – ‘a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step’ (or maybe pedal 🤣). * #becomingacyclist #whywetri #womenfortri #triathlon #garmin #nevertooold #ageisjustanumber #disruptingage #fitover40 #fitat49 #justgettingstarted #roadtoironman

Fit inspo doesn’t have to be all gym selfies and WODs. It can be snaps of sunset cycling, amateur surfing, and lakeside Ironman training. This Aussie takes her training outdoors, and you’ll love every captured moment.

Sometimes I forget I’m turning 55 in August. Age is way more than a number and yet I don’t think it should keep us from breaking stereotypes. For those who ask when I started yoga — I found my way back to it at 51 and I practice daily. But my practice is built on a lifetime of being a runner, dancer, swimmer, and an ocasional yogini. I’ve shared often how I started my sports and meditation journey for mental health reasons. I was really young. 12. I became certified as a fitness instructor at 21 and although I identify most with being a writer, I was a part time fitness and dance instructor until my early 30s. The body, mind and spirit have memory. Never too early to start caring for them but also never too late! #handstand #yogaeverydamnday #disruptaging #cincuentañera

A post shared by Lorraine C. Ladish (@lorrainecladish) on

Life’s curveballs are really just reasons to do yoga, meditate, and watch funny movies. At least that’s the case for Lorraine, a mom, writer, yogini, and now just the inspiration you need to perfect mermaid pose.

Mandy’s account is like the intersection of entertainment and yoga. A former Cheers actress, she’s traded the small screen for a yogalosophy that taps into inner and outer strength.

Julie Diamond

Bringing SEXY Back!!! A exercise favorite of mine for the back is the 1 arm row! Performed correctly, It's one of the best "bang for your buck" upper body exercise you can do to target the upper and lower lats as well as the lower back muscles. Lift 1 leg for added core and balance work. 1 Arm Row: *Position yourself bent forward in front of a bench or standing while holding a dumbbell with one hand (arm extended). *Lift the dumbbell up until your upper arm is parallel to your body * Lower it back after a short pause * Alternate hands when set is completed. *Keep your back straight and shoulders squared throughout. *Only the arm should move. #sexyback 💪

A post shared by Julie Diamond (@juliediamondfitness) on

If there’s anyone who can cure your fear of those dreaded kettlebells, it’s Julie. A trainer and life coach, she’s pro-weights and just the motivation to get you off that elliptical and swinging that bell.

Happy Monday beauties How was your weekend? – – Here's some Monday Motivation to get you moving and breathing 🦋 The most essential thing we can do for our physical, mental, and emotional well-being is to bring awareness to our breath and learn to breathe with both expansion and compression. When we are breathing correctly, not only do we MOVE more efficiently, but we also LIVE more efficiently. If you're stating my #tsytransformation course this week, the exercises will focus on creating space in the upper body and align the rib cage, collarbone, chest, neck, shoulders, diaphragm, and lungs. All of this will help build a heightened awareness of our breath. It also brings awareness of our posture and any tension or blockages in the body and expands the chest for deeper breath, decreased stress, and a calmer nervous system. By breathing more efficiently and increasing the amount of oxygen intake, which helps get our metabolism fired up and burn excess fat and helps us get back in touch with what truly inspires us!! – If you're on this #alignedtribe journey with me, how's it going??? I'd love to hear from you 👐🏻 take photos of you on your #loroxalignedroller roller, tag me and I'll repost 🙏🏼🌈☀️ #mondaymotivation #transformation #foamrolling #pilates #yogalover #pilateslovers #wellness #healing #selfhealing #athleisure #workout #tsytransformation #alignedtribe #alignment #beautyiswellness #selfcare #breathe #calmvibes #californialiving

Ramona’s purpose goes beyond workouts vids (although there are those, too) and training Hollywood’s most familiar faces; she started 321Empower, a program that teaches fitness to women rescued from human trafficking in India.

Goodbye South of France 🇫🇷 till next year … tu me manques 😔 déjà Really hoping I haven't got any pubes sticking out of my bikini. Always a bit dodgy posting something when I'm not wearing glasses 🤓 @jcrew

A post shared by Davina Mccall (@davinamccall) on

Sometimes you just need someone to tell you to “put away that magazine and work harder.” You get that from Davina, a fitness guru with a six-pack for days. Want new kitchen favorites? She’s got those, too.

Kacy Duke

Happy 4th everybody! Make a wish on this rainbow!

A post shared by Kacy Duke (@kacyduke) on

Get off the scale. And into the mindset that you can’t put a number on how you feel. That’s the gist of Kacy’s mantra. She’s a celeb trainer whose recent focus is on getting that midsection swimsuit ready.
