@JillianMichaels

We're huge fans of this fitness expert, life coach, author, blogger, and TV personality. Jillian Michaels is an inspiration! When she's not on The Doctors or The Biggest Loser, you can catch her on Twitter sharing even more fitness tips, like which cocktails you should drink during the holidays and new songs to add to your workout playlist.

@MyTrainerBob

Another trainer from The Biggest Loser, Bob Harper's Twitter feed is also an inspiration. You'll get the inside scoop on the show and on how he lives a healthy lifestyle. For starters, did you know he eats oatmeal for breakfast every day? He says it fills him up so he's not as tempted to eat those evil holiday treats!

@BornFitness

Not only is this Livestrong.com editorial director kind of hunky (yes, we do have a crush on him), we also love his practical tips and thought-provoking posts. For instance, today, he taught us that the food industry pours 160 pounds of sugar per person into the U.S. food supply. Fear! Thanks for posting, Adam!
