Over lockdown, many people have struggled with insecurities around their weight and body image. It is all too easy to see fitness influencers with ‘the perfect body’ and compare yourselves to them. When you are scrolling Instagram, you need to remember that fitness influencers run a full time career around being healthy and working out, they aren’t your ‘average’ gym goer or healthy person.

We have rounded up some of our favourite mid-size and plus size fitness influencers to show you that being healthy isn’t all about the size of your clothes or a number on a scale. Many people use fitness as a way to support their mental health, feel good and channel some positive vibes into their life. Remember it is about how you feel in yourself, not about people you see on social media. Brighten up your feed with some body positive fitness enthusiasts and fall in love with working out again.
