Our fitness favourites
Between all of our alternative exercise routines, we’ve been looking elsewhere to find fitness inspiration.
So we decided to collate all of our favourite Instagram fitness fanatics who’ve shown us that you don’t need to go very far to find motivation to get fit.
Enjoy our top five picks.

1) Two Bad Bodies @twobadbodies
From coordinated jump rope routines to mesmerising synchronised stair workout routines, Jennifer Forrester and Kaisa Keranen are an incredible fitspirations.
The ‘BAD’ (Beautiful Atheltic Duo) met while competing in races for the University of Washington, and have been fit friends ever since.
Through their frequently updated page, the pair’s creativity and variety of workouts inspire us at altFit to have fun with our fitness.
2) Ellie Goulding @elliegoulding
She’s a chart-topper, but she’s also a gym-goer! New face of the Nike Women campaign, Ellie Goulding uses her ‘gram as a great way of kindling her passion for fitness.
In this video Ellie experiments using the dreaded battle ropes – they’re great for building some great arm strength and for letting off some steam in the gym.
3) Ben Booker @thebenbooker
Think climbing ropes are only for kids on the playground? Then you haven’t met Ben. DailyBurn trainer Ben Booker rocks the rope…mid-push-up! Plus, his snaps of other fitness challenges ( including grip strength training, dynamic push-ups and more) motivate us to get creative with our own crushing workouts.
4) Keoni Hudoba @keonihudoba
Join Hawaiian-born trainer and creator of the Cyc method Keoni Hudoba in his #partnerlikeaBOSS movement, which challenges you to team up for fitness tasks. The push-up above is twice as tricky! Or, stability squats, anyone?
5) Massiel “Massy” Arias @upyourfitness
Personal trainer, Massy, masters the flagpole. It’s the ultimate fitness move, but Massy makes it look effortless as he swings around his local gym. This one-legged squat will torch your glutes, hammies and quads. We love following Massy’s fitness journey on IG with informative captions in English and Spanish.

Remake of the video that got @dailyburn 's attention for the #FITSTAGRAMMIES ! Rising pigeon to cossack transfer. First time I posted it, I was just trying to learn to move like @deweynielsen … I now have a much better understanding of what's going on. Mobility work on a whole new level, and ultimately, I'm just having fun. #playmore #FRCms #FRC #functionalrangeconditioning #functionalanatomyseminars #controlyourself #move #movement #movementculture #flexibility #mobility #physicalculture #flow #hunterfitness #pigeon #cossack #lunge song: five hours remix by deorro
