Top Fitness Men to Follow on Instagram

Posted on by

Nothing will make you drop that burger quicker than seeing an image of a perfectly toned physique online. To give you motivation and inspiration to get moving when the couch feels the most comfortable, I have found some of the best male fitness accounts on Instagram to get you pumping iron like Arnold Schwarzenegger.

‘’Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.
What we face may look insurmountable. But I learned something from all those years of training and competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn’t think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know.’’ ~Arnold Schwarzenegger

He first got into calisthenics when he jumped onto a pull up bar one day and decided to try out a few bodyweight exercises. He loved the feeling that he got from pulling himself up. He felt an amazing rush of inner strength that got him hooked onto building his physique through calisthenics. It gave him control of his mind and body and ultimately gave him strength to master and dominate anything he wished to accomplish. With strength, confidence and perseverance he figured out ways of training that pushed him towards superhuman abilities.

One of the most important elements of a fitness lifestyle is flexibility and no other activity does it better than yoga. Yogi Carson Calhoun’s press-up handstands and arms balances are done like gravity does not exist. He shows the importance of flexibility and engaging your core as well as how to achieve a flawless practice on and off the mat.

Shaun T is doing what he loves best—developing, traveling, and helping people attain their goals through physical and mental challenges. Shaun T’s biggest fitness accomplishment came in 2009 when INSANITY debuted and forever changed the face of home fitness through 60 days of Shaun T’s proprietary Max Interval Training. INSANITY has since held its rightful place as the #1 selling infomercial on TV, helping a world of people DIG DEEPER and get the most insane results possible in the shortest amount of time. With follow-up programs INSANITY: THE ASYLUM Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, FOCUS T25 & INSANITY MAX: 30 Shaun T helped people embrace their inner athlete and achieve permanent success through health and fitness, even earning notoriety with professional athletes and Olympians using the programs to train for their sports.

Former NFL defenseman Terry Crews went on to become an actor, known by many for his humorous turn in Old Spice commercials. If there’s one thing about Terry Crews that everybody can agree on, it’s that the man’s in nothing short of ridiculous shape—especially for a 46-year-old. Whether the actor is popping his pecs in Old Spice commercials or flexing his comedic lips on FOX’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, his physique is a big part of his appeal.

“I am a Tassie Devil, born in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. I learnt health and fitness from the beginning of life with my father a food and exercise lover. I guess you could say I was born to love health and fitness with my genes and my up bringing. I started walking at 9 months and never stopped moving from there.”
