They're tanned, toned and ALWAYS working out

Was fitspo a word in 2014? We can't remember that far back. Regardless, 2015 was the year it became a household hashtag, with everyone following at least one (or 50... or 100...) #fitspo stars, be it a toned and tanned yogi of Bianca Cheah proportions, a svelte bikini babe à la Laura Enever or a clean-eating, hard-training model like Shanina Shaik, Bridget Malcolm or Hannah Saul. We could go on.

The best #Fitspo stars have more than outrageously large social media followings in common: they're toned and tanned in a way that filters and FaceTune just can't fake, and they seem to share that elusive quality us mere mortals struggle to maintain: motivation. Always snapped (or snapping themselves) at the gym, park or beach, working out is their raison d'être, and why wouldn't it be? They look damn fine doing it.
