28 Black Fitness Pros You Should Be Following on Instagram

These Insta accounts will inspire you to get moving.

As a black woman, I’m often discouraged scrolling through #fitspo accounts on Instagram because my body type is more muscular—and if I’m being totally honest, more jiggly—than most. So I’m always on the hunt for other black women who are devoted to the fit life to inspire my personal goals. And the celebrity trainers, fitness instructors, and professional athletes ahead will definitely get you motivated to start moving.

Whether you’re into yoga, running, weight lifting, or pole dancing (yes, pole dancing), there is someone you can relate to on this list. These women also represent a variety of body shapes and sizes, because there’s no one-size-fits-all rulebook to fitness. Of course, the most important thing is finding a routine that fits your lifestyle and keeps you energized. And these pros will give you plenty of ideas for new workout moves to try. Get ready to sprinkle some #blackgirlmagic all over your Instagram feed.

What Does It Mean To Be “Black Butterfly Beautiful”

The image of the butterfly has come to define the many expressions of the feminine black consciousness and for a good reason. The butterfly is the perfect articulation of the exquisite beauty of nature. Whether tiny or large, brightly colored or more subdued, the butterfly’s allure is undeniable. Each one displays its own unique patterns and hues, and no one species outshines any other.

Similarly, there is no one ideal image of a black woman -- each is gorgeous in her right. All African-Americans share a glorious history of struggle and perseverance that has funneled into the modern black renaissance. And, like the graceful butterfly, the awakened black woman exemplifies the dazzling beauty of that cultural evolution.
