FITNESS INSTAGRAMMERS, OR ‘fitstagrammers’ are the new beauty gurus when it comes to online popularity.
Seriously. People are obsessed.
So my mission was to try out a killer class a day while here from what all you guys suggested and what I read online- and to my surprise the most kick ass was a Pilates class 😛😛😛 it was so tough using the MEGA reformer, if you think your strong, fit & flexible this class @sltnyc will humble you 😂😂😂 GEAR @reebokwomenuk #nyc #nycfitness #irishfitfam #pilates #reformerpilates #megareformer #sltnyc
Admittedly though, a lot of their goings-on on social media can be unsettlingly removed from reality.
Are fitstagrammers real people? Are they simply super buff bots? Figments of our imaginations? These actions would support all of the above theories.
1. Try to pass off tortilla wraps as pizza
Call Dominos and explain to them the grievous error you’ve just made.
Yes, it might be delicious. But it’s not pizza. It’s an unfolded cheesy wrap with ham on it. Do not give in to your own delusions.
2. … Or cauliflower as rice
It’s just blitzed veg. Not a carbohydrate in sight.
Besides, I know what one I’d rather have in a 3-in-1. Keep dreamin’.
Lentil chili with cauliflower rice for dinner. The chili is from the forks over knives cookbook and tastes lovely - plus loads left over for tomorrow 👍 #lentilchili #chili #veganchili #cauliflowerrice #forksoverknives #hownottodie #vegan #plantbased #poweredbyplants #plantpowered #vegansw #veganslimmingworld #slimmingworldjourney #slimmingworlduk #slimmingworld #thrivingonplants #hclf #forksoverknives #eatlikeavegan #eatnatural #whatveganseat #healthyveganfood #cleaneating #eatclean #instafood #vegansofinstagram #swinsta #swvegan
3. … Or coconut water ice-pops
What’s wrong with a humble 99, eh? Calcium and all in it.
4. Those partner workouts
It’s a struggle to work out alone as it is, you want me to be lifting people up and swinging them around too?
Get the boat.

5. Handstands everywhere
Seriously. There’s no such place as an inappropriate place to do a handstand.
On rainy days I love looking back through old pictures on my phone, they can really transport you back to a very different time.... sometimes to a place much sunnier. ☀️ I would like to go back to Hawaii one day it's such a friendly & different culture. Plus the food and beer is great, Kona Big Wave 🌊 & Long Board being my favourites 🍻 Where would you like to visit again? #hawaii #theleanmachines #seizetheholiday
Would you watch that one of ye doesn’t fall over lads?!
6. Putting avocado or peanut butter in everything they eat
Two Pups' avocado on sourdough – with chilli, peanut butter and two soft-fried eggs – is the ultimate proof that there is NO food that can't be improved by the addition of peanut butter 🙌🏻 Thank you to God for making peanuts and to @ciaralnorton for introducing me to this gorgeous D8 café (which is dog-friendly too!) ❤️
7. Using their baby/dog as a weight during workouts
Just take them for a walk like a normal person! They don’t know what gainz are!!!
F U N 🎟 My workout partner didn’t seem as bothered today! The following 5 exercises are perfect for days when you want to work your full body and spend a little time with either your fur-baby or your real baby! For these exercises aim to do them for as long as you can before (a) your dog gets bored (b) he tries to hump your leg... 😂 1️⃣ Alternating Pressups, 2️⃣ Sit Ups, 3️⃣ Leg Raises, 4️⃣ Burpees, 5️⃣ Squat Jumps.

8. Eat protein balls
Surely nobody eats these willingly? Or as a snack? Actually like?
In love with these coconut cacao protein balls @northourwellness made using cacao #popandbottle almond milk 😍 Take a look at the recipe below 👇🏼⠀ ⠀ 1 cup shredded coconut⠀ 1/2 cup coconut oil (measure then melt it!)⠀ 1/4 cup @eatingevolved roasted coconut butter (I used the sweet + salty)⠀ 1/2 cup raw cashews⠀ 1/3 cup @popandbottle cacao almond milk⠀ 2 scoops @primalkitchenfoods choc coconut protein⠀ 1 tbsp @navitasorganics cacao powder⠀ 1 tsp @fourthandheart vanilla bean ghee⠀ 1 tsp cinnamon⠀ *if you're using unsweetened almond milk and coconut butter, you can add some sweetness with 3-4 medjool dates⠀ ⠀ Combine all ingredients in a food processor. Roll into balls then coat with cacao powder or coconut shreds. Freeze on a sheet pan for an hour, then transfer to an airtight container. These are best when thawed for about 10 min before eating. #northoureats #proteinballs
Honestly, the effort of it all.
9. Go the gym everyday
Or at least train every day.
“No excuses?” “Train insane or remain the same?” Sure, but I’d also like a rest, thanks.
Never compare yourself to others! - A lot of people see others and think 'I could never look like that'. And honestly, you can't. You can never be someone else. And you shouldn't want to! Everybody has a different body type, different circumstances, different goals. But you absolutely CAN change and shape your body through proper nutrition and exercise. Take small steps everyday towards being the healthiest version of yourself.
Ridiculous? Yes. Will we still continue to obsessively follow them? Again, yes.
