"New year, new me” we’ve been hearing it a lot lately – well since the beginning of the month, and more than half of UK adults fail to keep their New Year’s resolutions, the top three being to lose weight, get fitters and eat healthier, with most failing within one month or less.
But fear not, because we’ve rounded up some of the top health and fitness Instagram accounts to keep you inspired, motivated and help to get you back on track.

Instagram starlet and certified personal trainer, Anna Victoria founded The Fit Body Guide – a 12 week work out plan, almost three years ago and has gained global success from her honest approach to health and fitness. With over 1.2 million followers, Anna Victoria was one of the leaders in scattering self-acceptance across Instagram, posting images of herself sitting down and showcasing "stomach rolls” instead of her usual toned torso. AV’s followers praised her for the posts, changing their perspective of her and making her genuine, real and human! Anna wanted to spread her fitness message to raise awareness that just because you look fine, doesn’t mean you feel fine. Before her fitness journey, Anna wasn’t over-weight, but she was unhealthy, eating junk food morning, noon and night. Inundated with messages from hundreds of thousands of her followers, Anna decided to create The Fit Body Guide, containing all her health and fitness expertise. So, if you want a genuine, relatable fitness content @annavictoria is your gal. Plus, she recently bought a golden retriever puppy named Rigatoni (of course) who makes the occasional Insta appearance.
