One look at these fitstagrammers and you'll be racing to the gym.
So there's this guy. We all know this guy. He wakes up at 5 a.m. in the dead of winter to go to the gym for a couple hours.
He runs and lifts and squats and planks his way meticulously through a strenuous routine.He eats clean and has a large container of protein powder on top of his fridge. He's insanely ripped and he knows it—and so do his swarms of Instagram followers.
Instagram is a prime platform for the fitness obsessed, and there are hordes of trainers, yoga instructors, athletes, and not-so-average Joes utilizing it to full effect. They want you to know that they're here for you. If you've already fallen down on your "New Year, New Me" resolution, they are here to corral you with one snapshot of their #grind. They are shirtless and preachy and motivational. They'll inspire you and also make you feel existential shame every time you hit the snooze button and miss a morning sweat sesh.
