Follow these celebrity fitness instructors on Instagram to stick to your resolutions this year

Behind every shot of your favourite celebrity’s washboard abs, is hours spent doing multiple sets of Russian twists and butterfly crunches. Most of them, even the disciplined ones, admit that they need a whole lot of guidance to stick to their fitness routine. And if your new year’s resolution to work out every day has begun losing steam, we’ve rounded up a list of the best celebrity fitness instructors on Instagram who will remind you to get back on the mat.

By the end of the first week of January, most fitness goals don’t seem as plausible as they did on New Year’s eve. After all, between the hustle of life and the allure of Netflix at the end of a long day, the prospect of pumping out push-ups and logging steps on your fitness tracker might not be all that appealing. If you need that push to keep going, we recommend strategizing all that serial scrolling on social media and following these celebrity fitness instructors on Instagram. While some share motivational quotes and snaps that are the pinnacle of fitness goals, others have entire routines that will push you to get off the couch and get in a few squats for the day.
