The Chin Twins: Kimmy & Crissy

But they stay connected through their stunning photos (like this one of mirrored eagle poses), which showcase the strength and beauty of yoga as well as the mind-blowing coolness of identical twins.

You Know What They Say...

Friends who work out together get super fit together. Or something like that, right?

Though our fave duo @TwoBadBodies has since retired from posting, we still love seeing BFFs and sisters get fit together on our Instagram feed. After all, there are so many benefits to having a gym buddy: you reduce your risk of injury, push yourself harder, and you're that much more likely to actually go every day. Not to mention, you can try cool tricks, come up with innovative new moves, and you always have someone there to catch it on camera.

These accounts are some of our favorites, and we're giving you the go-ahead to stalk for hours. So scroll through these fit stars' feeds, grab a friend, and hit the gym to make your own fit friend magic.
