If you woke up and worked out this morning, sticking to your New Year’s resolutions from the start, then we applaud you. If you woke up this morning and stayed under your warm covers while scrolling Instagram, waiting until the clock said it was too late to exercise, then we can’t blame you. Mondays are hard–working out on a Monday after New Year’s is even harder.
That’s why we’ve rounded up some local fitness Instagram experts to add to your feed. Follow them all, and the next time you’re visiting Instagram instead of your gym, you just might stumble upon a motivational yoga pose or sunrise run that’s good enough to get you out of bed.
