Shweta Rathore @shwetarathore13
Shweta isn’t just an ordinary girl who is obsessed with fitness, she’s, quite literally, the queen of it. Besides having the winnings of Miss Asia Fitness Physique Champ, Miss World 2015 and Miss India 2015 Sports Physique under her belt, the lass is also a brand ambassador and founder of a fitness brand. Her feed is peppered with washboard abs, gym hashtags and selfies that will make you hit the follow button instantly.
While Jessamyn isn’t what you’d expect of a quintessential yogi, that’s precisely what makes her even more inspirational. Terming herself as a fat femme, Jessamyn is a plus size yoga teacher who is crushing body shamers and breaking stereotypes as she twists, turns and contorts herself into asanas we can’t even begin to think of!

Clocking in as one of the top five health and fitness influencers in the world, Cassey’s feed is one we cannot get enough of!

Misty is just one step away from being your regular fitness freak. Being a principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre, there’s no fitspo picture anywhere on the internet that is quite as graceful as hers.
