THE FITNESS INFLUENCERS TO FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM

8 Jan 2020 | Student Life, Wellbeing

Staying fit whilst keeping on top of Uni assignments can feel like a chore. However, with exam season looming it is more important than ever to stay active and healthy.

Not only is exercise good for your muscles and bones, it can also help to improve your cognitive health. When you exercise your brain produces endorphins, which are natural painkillers, helping improve your sleep and reduce stress levels. Creating an at home exercise plan that works for you can be a really good way to stay fit, as well as keep up with your studies. That’s why I have chosen two of my favourite female fitness influencers to give you the best advice on at home workouts.

Krissy Cela

This 25-year-old personal trainer/model posts regular at-home workouts through her Instagram page, as well as offering advice on food and meal plans through IGTV videos. If you are interested in healthy eating, as well as hitting the gym, her account is definitely a visit.As well as posting on her Instagram account, she also offers lengthier versions of workouts under herself named YouTube Channel, so make sure to check that out too! In addition to this she also has a free to download (pay for subscription) app called Tone and Sculpt, which allows its users to track their progress. The app offers a personalised service, providing a workout guide catered to the persons own specific needs and goals.
