You know how an Instagram feed that’s full of delicious-looking food can make you want to get all up in that? The same goes for fitness. Follow badass women who post photos and videos of themselves dead-lifting twice their weight, showing off their chiseled legs, or sculpting a sick core, and you might be more inclined to hit the gym.
