My Current Fitness Inspirations!

Monday, 1 August 2016

Sometimes when I'm tired and my motivation is lacking, I need some fitness inspiration to keep me working hard. Lately I've found quite a few awesome people that have worked incredibly hard to be where they are and it reminds me of why I need to do the same. Surrounding myself with inspirations like the ones below keeps me on the right path and helps me focus on my goals. I keep finding more and more awesome fitness fanatics like me to follow, so I thought I would share my favorites!

Heidi Somers a.k.a BuffBunny

I came across this awesome girl on Instagram, then checked out a few of her Snapchat stories and I was hooked. One of the first snaps I watched was her doing leg presses with some insane weights and I said to myself "I need to be like her!" She works so hard and has such an amazing attitude towards life in general. Heidi is also living my dream career (creator/sponsored athlete) so to have her as an inspiration I can look to will keep me going. She's so funny and hustles like no one else. Her YouTube channel is full of amazing advice, especially for people just starting out on a fitness journey. Definitely become one of my biggest inspirations lately.

The Hilarious Kevin Hart 

Another one of my Snapchat favorites that I love watching everyday. Kevin is a massive lover of fitness, especially running, which we have in common. He recently went on holiday to Mexico and so many of his snaps were of him and his trainer working out. The commitment alone inspires me, but then he will quite often go off on a tangent and end up giving a really great motivational speech. One of them was about a quote of his that went something like:

Excuses are not acceptable in the Kevin Hart Movement

Which is exactly right! If you want something bad enough, you won't make excuses that will stop you from getting it. On a side note, a really want a pair of his Nikes!

My Fellow Fitness Bloggers 

There are quite a few lovely ladies that are on their own fitness journeys and I've really enjoyed following their progress. Just seeing everyday people determined to be a better version of themselves and being honest with their struggles makes me want to keep working hard. One amazing girl that I've talked about before is Sian from Tattooed Princess Blog. She has completely transformed herself and her weight-loss journey has to be one of the most impressive I've ever seen. This girl does not give up and she is a total bad-ass at the gym. I can't tell you how much respect I have for her.

I'm sure I've told you about how awesome Lucy from Sweet is Always In Style blog is, but I'm gonna tell you again! The two of us share the same passion for fitness and we love sending Snapchats to each other for extra motivation. Lucy has been posting videos of her at the gym on Instagram doing some killer workouts that she is just nailing. She's also someone that I can always talk to and has an amazing positive attitude, which is the type of person that I always need in my life. Long-distance gym buddies!

Jess Greene 

I think I discovered Jess through my favorite cafe's Instagram and I was blown away by how hard she works and her incredible attitude. She comes from the same city as me and has ended up working with some awesome supplement companies. I added Jess on Snapchat as well and seeing her at the gym by 5.30am makes me feel so inspired to get up and hustle. She doesn't stop working for what she wants and constantly inspires others to do the same. I'm secretly hoping to run into her at our cafe one day so I can thank her! Definitely check out her Instagram for lots of fitspo, including her meal prep and supplement favorites!
