JP Sears—The Wellness Satire King

They produce content for women and men who want to live a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing their freedom.

Sophie Gray—The Feel-Good Social Media Maven

  • Even in today's world of Instagram empires, Gray's stands out. Maybe it's her unshakeable positivity or her commitment to prioritizing self-love over any diet or exercise plan. We were all in when Gray's organization, Way of Gray, announced a Self-Love Challenge in which thousands of women were invited to take small, everyday steps toward self-acceptance.

Jennifer Cohen—The Trendspotter

Sohee Lee—The Beauty and Beast

  • Sohee Lee is interested in serving as your virtual personal trainer. Lee is an amateur powerlifter and a licensed strength and conditioning specialist with a Stanford degree in human biology. She's also an inspiration as she was able to overcome an eight-year eating disorder after discovering weightlifting.

Adam Rosante—The Surfer-Slash-Trainer

  • Adam Rosante is an upbeat personal trainer who cares about individuals, not just athletes, and celebrities. He illustrates how leading a balanced, healthy lifestyle can be both pleasurable and economical. His pay-what-you-want exercise sessions, The People's Bootcamp, were sold out all year, and he gave out Super Smoothie Revolution, a new book of delicious, nutrient-packed smoothie recipes, at the end of 2016. 

Dalai Lama—The Spiritual Guru

As a former drug dealer turned motivational speaker, he has done numerous national tours, started his own life-coaching business, and authored over 20 books.

Gaskins hopes that his work will aid people in their relationships, businesses, and personal growth.

Chrissy Teigen—The Supermodel Foodie

  • Chrissy Teigen was one of the year's biggest proponents of body positivity, accepting her stretch marks and showing them off to her millions of Snapchat followers. When it comes to tearing down internet bullies, she's fearless, but when she talks about her newborn girl and her fertility issues, she's vulnerable. Cravings, Teigen's debut cookbook, was launched in February 2016, and while it isn't full of the world's healthiest dishes, it's apparent she has a healthy connection with food.

Steve Kamb—The Fitness-is-Fun Cultivator

  • Steve Kamb, who is on a mission to promote fitness through comics and superheroes, founded Nerd Fitness, a community of underdogs, misfits, and mutants who can't wait to help. Kamb provides intensive fitness plans, classes, and retreats, as well as free resources, to help his "rebellion" achieve its goals. It's like the X-Men Academy, but it's for actual people.

Key Takeaway

Fitness motivation is just a small part of your whole journey to wellness, and it's probably the one we have the most trouble with when we first begin. Instead of letting your drive wane, think about what you desire for yourself, beyond weight loss and physical beauty.

People that exercise look for reasons to do it because they understand how beneficial it is to their lives. Consider what might make your life better, and you'll be inspired to keep going. Be inspired and try to be a fitness inspiration to others as well. 

I hope these health and fitness influencers will somehow motivate you to make the very big but important decision of your life—to start now and have a healthy lifestyle.
