If you have ever wondered if female weightlifters are capable, you haven't seen Christmas Abbott's Instagram profile. This girl knows how to lift extreme weights - you can see that just by looking at her body. All of her muscles are properly defined - in fact, her back and lateral muscles are bigger than what even some male athletes have. Her Instagram is currently sitting at around 391,000 followers, so do check it out.
To improve your diet, Abbott recommends that you only skip on two types of products - alcohol and processed foods. Other than that, you can consume all of the healthy proteins, carbs, and fats. For exercise, Abbott recommends short, high-intensity training sessions that can easily melt your fat away, and improve your musculature. HIIT sessions can work wonders for this type of training, as well as basic compound exercises at the gym.
Emily Skye is another successful and popular Instagram fitness celebrity. She is obviously in the shape of her life - she looks happy, and is radiating with positive energy in the above photo. She is the most famous celebrity to be featured at this point of this article, at 1.8 million followers - that's several times more than some of the other celebrities.
Emily is neither vegan nor paleo - she tries to eat healthily, but also includes snacks in her diet. Clean eating to her is all about feeding your body with the right nutrients at the right time. She stays away from as much packaged and processed food as possible - so no microwave dinners if you follow this diet. If the packaging lists ingredients you don't know or can't even pronounce, then that's a processed food which you shouldn't be eating.
Michelle Lewin knows a thing or two about social media - that's why her account currently has over 4.1 million followers and is growing on a daily basis. She is so good at keeping her body in a perfect shape that she has been on the cover of several fitness magazines. If you check out her Instagram pictures, you'll see that maintaining a form like that is no walk in the park in terms of how much work, routine, and maintenance it requires.
Michelle uses a split routine for her exercises, meaning different days in the week are for training different muscle groups. Monday is her back and biceps day, which includes exercises such as chin-ups, rows, T-bar rows, dumbbell curls, EZ bar curls and straight bar curls. Tuesday is her hamstrings and calves day, which includes exercises such as lying leg curls, seated leg curls, deadlifts, seated calf raises and standing calf raises.
Ana Cheri obviously knows how to lift - and it seems that she lifts on a frequent basis, looking at her photos.

Ana is a huge fan of the "leg day," which you can clearly see from her photos. She says "I'm a huge fan of "leg day" and I'm always doing lower body. I can't get enough of it. And I also deadlift. My max was 205 lbs. and I'm like 125 lbs. I was really proud of myself on that one!"

Jenelle Salazar is a pretty unique type of fitness celebrity. Her videos are mostly centered on providing information to her fans about unique and one of a kind exercises that Jenelle comes up with on her own.

Just looking at her ab definition shows that she is serious about her workouts.
Her recommended workouts are strength training (via weightlifting and whole body workouts), as well as kickboxing. Judging by the size and definition of her abs, Jenelle is obviously keeping a clean diet, but she does try to keep a high protein intake on her workout days. For optimal muscle gains, you can either try to use whey protein or if you want to save money, you can consume animal-based proteins (like sardines, chicken, and eggs).

"Every cheat meal in Italy was pasta caccio e peppe (pasta with cheese and peppers)," Victoria says. "In the U.S., it's usually Mexican food."

About her training, Britany says "I train my glutes up to three times a week for up to an hour and fifteen minutes with about 10 different glutes exercises that isolate the muscles by working them from various angles." After her morning lifting, she says "I go back to the gym in the afternoon or evening to do 30 to 45 minutes of cardio, plus stretching, yoga, and foam rolling because it alleviates soreness and aids in muscle recovery."

For Health and Fitness, Casey seems to be following the mainstream advice - she tries to keep a clean diet (that means eating fruit, vegetables, and clean sources of protein and fat) while working out every week. For the workouts, she says it is important not to get burned-out, which is especially easy to do if you are a beginner. Compound exercises are your best bet towards building a healthy body.
Katrina and Karena
Here is a different kind of Instagram channel - instead of being the personal account of a single girl, this account is being run by 2 California-based girls Katrina and Karena. Karena is a triathlete and a model, while Karena is a health science student, which means the two of them are great at supplementing and helping each other out - one with the exercises, and the other with proper diet advice.
According to a recent interview, the duo said that having balance in your diet and exercise is the key to having good health. They told the interviewer, "Balance. Never go to one extreme or the other. Finding a balance in all areas of your life from fitness, diet, work, friends, family, and solo time. A balance in all these areas are all important to living a healthy and happy life."
Rachel Brathen is a different kind of fitness superhero. She isn't into weight lifting high-intensity interval training sessions as much as the other girls on today's list. Rachel is a world-famous yoga instructor. She is obviously excellent at her job and knows how to take social media-worthy photos, which is why she currently has over 2 million followers on her Instagram account.
Rachel doesn't believe in labels, which is why she doesn't call herself "vegan" anymore. She says "I still eat a mainly vegan diet-I don't eat meat or eggs and I don't drink milk." She believes that putting labels on yourself is just going to limit your choice and future progress, which is not something you like to do when it comes to your health. She now eats a whole foods-based diet, lots of fruits and vegetables, some whole grains like quinoa and barley.
Tanya Poppett is an Australia-based fitness instructor. She uploads a lot of videos on her Instagram account of her exercises.

Watching them, you can feel how much energy she puts into her workouts - that's why she now has one of the hottest bodies on Instagram - to the satisfaction of her 351,000 followers.
Tanya believes in quality over quantity when it comes to training. "High-Intensity Interval Training, Strength Circuits, and Speed Based Cardio Workouts are my favorite ways to train. I love this type of training because it is a quick and effective way to boost your metabolism and condition your muscles without placing too much stress on your body," wrote Tanya in a blog post for IsoWhey.
Lauren Fisher is a college student and a CrossFit competitor, but her Instagram profile and photos have a remarkable girl-next-door feel to them. Being as popular as she is, and still keeping that kind of feeling to your web presence is a great achievement - it is what makes her so much more relatable to her 690,000 social media followers. She also uploads some silly/funny pics in addition to her fitness photos.
A typical breakfast for Lauren includes fish oil tablets (for the added Omega-3 benefit), 2 eggs + 1 egg white + 2 chicken breakfast sausage trader joe's or turkey bacon + lots of veggies + oatmeal. For lunch, she has 4 ounces meat or fish (I try to stay away from red meat because it's high in fats, but might eat it 1 to 2 times a week) + 1 serving rice + guacamole + veggies or salad.
Natalie Jill is a seriously happy and fun girl - you can just see the positive energy radiating from her photos.

She is a single mom and a functional fitness trainer from San Diego, California. Her account already has over 513,000 followers.
Natalie's advice can be summed up to: think of how your ancestors ate 10,000 years ago - if they didn't eat it, you shouldn't either.

If you need help with this my Jump Start Programs are a GREAT place to start as it teaches you ALL about this."

One of Lyzabeth's most popular posts is about how to lose weight on a vegan diet. She says that anyone can easily lose weight on a vegan diet, by just following her advice.

Amanda trains every day. Her basic training takes only 20 minutes, and is based on several whole-body exercises, such as "high knees, planks, butt kicks, froggers, burpees, jump squats, walkouts and reverse lunges."

She also posts a lot of selfies in fun fitness clothes.
Jeanette has a famous blog post, detailing a 7-day healthy meal plan. The meal plan includes 1,500-2,000 calories per day, which is enough for most women (add 500 calories if you are a guy). For the first day, you can have scrambled egg whites, sautéed collard greens, turkey bacon, brown rice, green tea with lemon for breakfast, and grilled chicken breast with garlic spinach and half a cup of baked yam for lunch.
Lita Lewis is a triathlete that also calls herself the "thick fit" trainer. That is probably the best way to explain her figure, as she is obviously strong and well trained, with well-defined muscles, but at the same time, she is not trying to be "thin" by today's meaning of the word. She posts a lot of plyometric exercise videos and motivations quotes that keep her 420,000 worldwide followers entertained.
Like most other fitness models, Lita recommends having a lot of healthy protein after finishing with intense workouts, so that your body can recover and grow more muscles as soon as possible. "I would suggest protein post strength training. Essentially, when you're working out the muscles and you're doing all the strength training, you have to consider the muscles and what it's doing is breaking down the fibers," Lita says.
Jessamyn Stanley is not like the other instructors featured in this story. Her Instagram account is not famous because of her weight lifting or weight loss progress - Jessamyn is in the body-positive movement, which means she accepts her body as it is. She is also awesome at yoga, which shatters some peoples beliefs that certain yoga poses and inversions can't be done by overweight people.
Jessamyn labels her movement "fat yoga." She explains it as, "I say 'fat yoga' and to me it's like, being fat and practicing yoga. For some people 'fat yoga' means only fat people can practice this style of yoga. I'm not a separatist, but some people think it's important for us to have our own thing. My problem with labeling fat yoga is that it turns into the idea that there are only certain kinds of yoga that fat people can do. And that if you're not doing fat yoga that you're not allowed to do yoga."
Holly Rilinger's Instagram account - @hollyrilinger, serves as a daily reminder that everything is possible with your body if you put the time and effort to do it. She uses her Instagram account not only to upload exercise and inspirational photos and videos, but to also upload selfies and surfing pictures, since she is a big fan of surfing, and the beach in general.
Ever since she began to get serious about her health, Holly has become a morning person. She said in a recent interview, "I LOVE to sleep in. But I also love to work out in the morning because it sets the pace for my whole day," she says. "So, I suppose I've made myself a morning person because the rest of my day hinges on it." Beginning the day early is important for anyone who is serious about improving their lifestyle.
Mary Helen Bowers
Unlike most of the other women in today's list, Mary Helen Bowers is not a professional weightlifter, bodybuilder or even a fitness instructor. Mary is a ballerina, as you can see in the above photo - that's why her figure and muscle mass are much smaller than the other featured girls. Ballerinas have to keep a low weight in order to be as nimble and agile as possible.
She explains her diet, "For breakfast, I will have coffee and 1) slow-cooked oats with some raw nuts and fresh fruit. In the winter it tends to be a lot of citrus, especially grapefruit. I also eat an 2) apple every day, because they are so easy, fast and full of fiber. For lunch, I usually try to have a 3) large salad with a ton of fresh greens, veggies and a side of grilled chicken, salmon or steak and some wheat bread."
