They say it takes a village to raise a child. It also takes a similar village to get fit if you're not a very self-motivated person, and that's okay!
Instagram is a seriously awesome platform for daily #fitspo, and no, not the kind that makes you bitter (at least, not all the time). Some of the accounts below are communities that re-post inspirational pictures with visible bod progress, others are just workout gear brands that do a great job at posting motivational pictures.
The one thing they all have in common, though, is that they'll want to get you up and going. Follow away, #fitstagram!
The BodyBoard Insta account is actually just part of the BodyBoard community. Their app is made especially for fitness lovers to share before/after pics, scroll through an "activity feed" where you can see the posts of everyone who you follow, and "Missions," which are basically contests where you can win free swag.

Fala galera! Passei pra falar um pouco da minha prova, mas antes preciso agradecer algumas pessoas. . A Betinha que teve um papel fundamental em todo o processo. Te Amo! Minha família pelo apoio incondicional. Meu time - assessoria @number_onerunning por me preparar da melhor maneira com a minha rotina maluca! O suporte total do time @Nike com seus produtos excelentes e experiências únicas (obs: o Vomero 12 ficou fera demais, virou meu preferido). Não menos importante, cada um de vocês que pararam 1 minuto pra mandar aquele incentivo ou para me dar parabéns... Agradeço muito mesmo! . Para essa prova tracei a meta de fechar entre 3h24 a 3h30. Reconheço que não estou na melhor fase, mas estava focado pra tentar o melhor. Larguei bem e fui controlando o pace. Cravei nos 4'50 de média e segui. Km por km sem deixar subir nem um segundo. Infelizmente no KM 31 senti um desgaste em minhas pernas e tive que reduzir. Foi meu primeiro K acima de 5'00 e não conseguia evoluir. Piorei bastante e controlei da forma que deu até cruzar o pórtico em 03:32:32. Gostaria de ter batido meu recorde pessoal? Lógico que sim. Estou triste com o resultado? De forma alguma. Quem é maratonista sabe.. mtas variáveis podem acontecer nos 42.195 metros. Essa é a nossa vida. Bora planejar a próxima! 👊🏼 . Me desculpem pelo longo texto, mas esse foi só um resumo que achei legal compartilhar com vocês 😉✌🏼 Repost @corresampa #InstaRunners . #corresampa #dubaimarathon #numberonerunning #nikerunning #vemjunto #nikezoom
