Summer is here, Charleston and Mount Pleasant! And that means that it’s vacation time! While many of us are fleeing the heat of the LowCountry, that means we have LOTS of time waiting in airports, riding in cars…and away from the gym! So what’s a DUFFNATIC to do with all this downtime? Look at your smartphone, of course! But to keep you from wasting away in cyberland, we have culled the internet for our favorite expert recommendations for INSPIRING INSTAGRAM ACCOUNTS to follow!
Not only do these Instagram Accounts post inspiring images, most are packed with workout ideas to take on the road with you!
Men’s Health INSTAGRAM Recommendation: @curtiswilliams17
“Curtis Williams will help you kick your routine up a notch. This former Baltimore Ravens player is now an elite performance coach and has his own training program. His exercises are designed to enhance your athleticism—so they’re high energy, challenging, and empowering.” Plus the man has what looks like 20-pack abs.
Shape INSTAGRAM Recommendation: @docjenfit
“Jen Esquer, a self-proclaimed “avid mover,” has been active since she was a kid, participating in gymnastics, track and field, and dance. She turned her love of movement into a career, becoming a doctor of physical therapy as well as a Pilates instructor and yogi based in Los Angeles. Her specialty, though, is mobility: She created an entire program called The Mobility Method, hosts free mobility challenges online, and serves up functional movement tips daily on her Instagram feed. You can rest assured knowing that anything you get off her IG is backed with serious knowledge of the human body and how it works.”
Huffington Post INSTAGRAM Recommendation: @adamrosante
“Fitness coach Adam Rosante keeps his technique simple: ‘Results. The byproduct of doing the work, every day,’ Rosante wrote on Instagram. ‘No glamour. No cheering crowds. No pats on the back. Just you and your willingness to move the needle forward,’.” Huff Post recommends Rosante’s food recommendations and motivational workouts.
