It is officially summer! What that means, other than us being in better moods, is that many of us are hoping to get our bodies in shape for the beach. Sadly, the truth is we should have already started, but hey, it's never too late! With that, there are a number of Instagram accounts dedicated merely to fitness, ones that can actually act as a motivator for us to get ourselves off that couch and onto a treadmill or lifting some weights.
Huffington Post is reporting on some of these accounts, but we're going to give you the top 5 we think could motivate you to get your booty to the gym.
After all, a little motivation couldn't hurt, no?

smiling and laughing The race photographer was at the top of this massive climb. I told him he had just captured the most painful moment of my life and then we both had a good laugh after he said that was kinda the point of where he was sitting can't stop smiling looking at pictures of this race. After the race was over I immediately said I never wanted to be in that much pain again or run the wall again BUT 3 days removed and I totally would do it all over - such an absolutely amazing experience. #irunthisbody #instarunners #womensrunning #greatwallmarathon #loveyourlife #run #igrunners #instarun #instarunning #runhappy #withoutwalls #china #vablogger #fitness #stairs
