Anna Victoria, @annavictoriafit
The best part of this California fit chick’s Snapchat is her easy gym plans, including warm-ups, workouts and cool-downs. But there is also no shortage of extras. She snaps her meals and will even tell you when she finds an amazing new healthy salad place.
Lyzabeth Lopez, @lyzabethlopez
This trainer from Toronto holds nothing back -- in a good way. She’ll show you how to make a delicious post-workout shake, share her vices (ice cream) and lament the woes of leg day. She’ll also bring you along as she trains clients, so you can see how she got her killer bod -- and steal her tricks.
Emily Skye, @emilyskyefit
This Australian fitness model took her Instagram prowess to Snapchat, where she posts her favorite meals, exercise shots during and after her workouts, and the zany odds and ends of her everyday life. There are also plenty of recipes, like detox drinks and yummy teas.
Hannah Bronfman, @hannahbgood
DJ, fashion maven and fitness fanatic, Bronfman’s snapchat account reflects exactly what it means to live the good life. Not only will you get behind-the-scenes shots, like recent runway snaps at Paris Fashion Week, but you’ll also get recipes for fit foods and her workout regimen -- whether it’s boxing routines or plyo sets.
Calum Von Moger, @calvonlive
If you want to check out an elite fitness regime, Von Moger has you covered. He’s a World Fitness Federation guru and a three-time Mr. Universe, which obviously takes some serious gym know-how. The pro shows his followers just how he gets into tip-top condition, with a slew of workout videos and snaps of that day’s protein-packed lunch.
Karena Dawn and Katrina Hodgson, @karenakatrina
You probably know Dawn and Hodgson as the “Tone It Up girls,” but the duo’s Snapchat is an uncensored look inside their fitness world. This includes how they run their ever-expanding business, their travels and indoor and outdoor workout routines. Sometimes they’ll even reveal how they test workout regimens. (Their interns have tough jobs!)
Steve Weatherford, @weatherford5
This NFL kicker has a ridiculously awesome and surprisingly relatable Snapchat presence. Whether he’s lifting or doing circuit training, he’ll take you behind the curtain for some seriously effective workouts. Weatherford is also a dad of three, so you can count on some wild times with his kids as well.
Fit Men Cook, @fitmencook
There are lots of fitness studs on snapchat, but Kevin from Fit Men Cook will also show you how to eat fit. If you want healthy snack ideas, amazing meal plans and supplement shopping tips centering around getting into the best shape of your life, Kevin has the Snapchat to follow. And it’s not only for guys, as women can heed many of these healthy-eating tips, too.
Cassey Ho, @blogilates
You may have previously discovered Ho’s Pop Pilates on YouTube, but her Snapchat account gives you an even closer look at the fitness world she’s developed. She delivers announcements and tips through the lens of hilarious filters, and she makes documenting workouts fun. Expect to see insider looks at fitness classes, in addition to how she shoots footage for her YouTube channel -- plus a heavy dose of silliness.
