Living an active, healthy lifestyle has never been cooler, and a lot of that is down to the rise of the fitness influencer.

Social media — and Instagram in particular — has made it easier than ever to find workout ideas and training tips, but for every influencer sharing genuinely good advice, there are tons more who don’t know what they’re talking about and simply grew their following because they have a banging body.

There’s a real difference between someone with a peachy booty, abs of steel, and popping biceps who simply posts selfies from the gym, and someone who actually shares science-backed evidence, genuinely good workouts, and motivational advice.

Former international athlete Worthington is a Nike trainer, sports scientist, and personal trainer to A-list celebrities, models, and elite athletes. He’s one of the most knowledgeable and respected people in the industry, and anything he doesn’t know about how the human body moves probably isn’t worth knowing.

Personal and group trainer Rye is a staunch advocate for the myriad benefits unrelated to the aesthetic change that exercise brings, and highlighted in a recent Instagram post that she is “an anti-diet weight inclusive PT, who focuses on the mental and physical benefits of exercise.” She’s a firm believer in moving your body because you love it, rather than as a form of punishment.
