I use social media so much when it comes to talking about and sharing my fitness journey. I even made a separate account in order to do so because I wanted to find like-minded body positive athletes to follow and have a direct place to focus on it. There is something about the plus size and body positive fitness communities that really makes you feel good about yourself and motivated to conquer any goal you have. I have ‘met’ some amazing folks on instagram that inspire me every single time I scroll through my newsfeed. Here are some of my absolute favorites.
Jennifer Mosley (@j_mosley88)
Why I love her: She has a lot of positivity to share and I really enjoy her real but positive stories she shares on her account. Nearly every picture of her on her account is showing that positivity in her wonderfully infectious smile.
Roz the Diva (@rozthediva)
Why I love her: Roz has been one of my favorite accounts to follow for a while and I love when I see her pop up on social media. She has some awesome insights about the plus size athlete community (she’s a trainer by the way!) and her raw humor is always welcomed by me. I love hearing her live her truth, because it’s often parallel to my own.
Why I love her: This account got my attention because she does interval training on runs/walks similar to myself. I love how she posts regularly so I can stay motivated and inspired all the time and she also hits the outdoors for hikes to get in some fit fun just like me, too. If you are an adventurer and fitness fanatic, this is one account you will love following.
Josie Stanford (@thegirlwholifts)
Why I love her: If her bright smile and pink hair don’t draw you in, the fact that she powerlifts will definitely intrigue you. Josie exudes confidence and strength and I love the videos she posts on her account of her lifting. Follow her for great mini-clips and you will find yourself becoming super inspired.
Why I love her: Cindy’s account is super fitness focused and I love that I can scroll through her pictures to find all kinds of videos, funny memes and inspirational quotes. She says on her account that she is no expert, just someone who’s on a journey and I can definitely get behind that.
Why I love her: Smiley exudes realness and positivity. Her account is full of her bright personality and she has a passion for fitness and nutrition. She is a vegetarian and shares lots of delicious recipes on her account along with fitness motivation and self-love.
Myself, Christine Tolhurst (@sbg_fitness)
Yes, this is a shameless plug. Keep in mind, though, that I like to share my gym adventures as well as outdoor ones and lately, I have been uploading short videos of what I do while working out. And of course, I love to show off my Rainbeau Curves gear.
