Instagram is already a great source for travel, fashion, and food inspiration, but we’ve noticed that it’s really becoming the go-to spot for #fitspiration.
With the swipe of your finger, you can instantly be connected to thousands of trainers, yogis, and athletes who share daily fitness posts and workout pics.

From fitness enthusiasts to yogis and trainers, these 15 in-shape Torontonians have some of the best workout motivation on Instagram you’ll find in the 6ix.
Follow them and they’ll definitely give you that extra push you need to reach your fitness goals.
