4 FITNESS INFLUENCERS TO FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM

8 Jul 2020 | Student Life, Wellbeing

Since gyms and indoor leisure centres were officially closed on March 21, many of us have relied on online workouts to keep us fit. According to the government, gyms are on track to reopen in the coming weeks. But when they do open, they will look very different. This poses the question as to whether gym goers will return. Working out from home has given us the freedom to roll out of bed and get active, without the monthly fees.

This 25-year-old personal trainer/model posts regular home workouts through her Instagram page, as well as offering advice on food and meal plans through IGTV videos.
