By now you should know that we so love fitness models (and yes, Instagram fitness models as well). Because aside from setting our souls on fire, they also inspire us to do more than just binge-watch and/or play games. Yup, some of us have gone to the gym or just worked out at home.

So we’ve compiled 25 of the hottest fitness models on Instagram you should be following. Oh, and a good number of them, we’ve featured before. So here they are in no particular order.
