Instagram Duos You Need to Be Following for the Ultimate BFF Fitspo
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.
The Chin Twins: Kimmy & Crissy
The Chin Twins are mothers, yogis, former fashion models, and twins, separated by over a thousand miles (Kimmy lives in Alabama and Crissy lives in New York City). 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. Really though, they look exactly the same.
Two Fit Moms: Laura and Masumi
Laura and Masumi of @TwoFitMoms are New Jersey mothers whose yoga Instagram snapshots have collected and inspired more than 40,000 followers (and their individual accounts hit even higher). They travel to teach workshops and classes, and preach that yoga truly is for everyone. (If you want to get a taste of their flow style, try our 30-day Yoga Challenge to Get Your Om On.)
Tone It Up: Karena and Katrina
The Tone It Up girls have truly reached Instagram fame, with 569,000 followers to date. The pair also has a non-branded Instagram, @KarenaKatrina, where they post even more behind-the-scenes of their fit-ventures. With an entire online fitness community under their umbrella, these girls have truly changed the fitness game—and we love that we can peek inside their lives on not one but two Instagram accounts. (And they know how to eat too. Try their recipe for a Sweet and Spicy Kale Salad.)
Base Body Babes: Diana and Felicia
This Aussie sister duo from down under is all about building a bomb body through strength and circuit training and healthy eating. They work hard for those seriously sculpted bodies, and they also have the cutest gym gear to show them off. With 597,000 followers, the pair is headed for big-time success; they're already killing it in Sydney in the Base Gym with the help of their coach. We think there must be some fitness magic in the water down there; after all, fitness sensation Kayla Itsines is an Aussie too. (Try her 7-minute workout to see why she's been so successful.)
Power Girls Fitness: MJ and Gen
Acroyoga Addicts: Reina and Breanna
Friends Reina and Breanna of @AcroyogaAddicts hit a floating camel pose in the park and make it look oh so easy. The pair flies in sun, sand, snow, and everywhere in between. The only thing more mesmerizing than their photos are the videos of how they get into these crazy positions. (These celebs may not be quite as daring, but they're got some yoga skills of their own.)
Food & Lycra: Kim, Laura, and Rachel
This UK trio breaks the mold of Instagram fitness duos with their account @FoodAndLycra. They're all about the fun side of food and fitness, and insist their motto is: "We run to eat." Their Instagram feed is filled with insanely delicious-looking food, fitness adventures, and special events. We would love to be part of their race-crushing, ice-cream-sandwich-eating squad.
A Bikini a Day: Natasha and Devin
The @abikiniaday feed will have you dying to book a beach vaca and buy 10,000 cute bikinis for it, but it will also make you want to hit the gym in preparation. ABAD started as two BFFs traveling the beaches of the world with nothing but suitcases of bikinis—and turned into crazy Instagram fame (we're talking 598,000 followers). They dish about health, fitness, and beauty on their blog, as well as, of course, bikinis.
