Instagram has done a lot for the fitness community, even more so for the female fitness community. While it has given a voice to many people who should actually stay quiet, it has made it easier than ever for people looking for fitness help, the access they need. It has also made it easier to build a business and brand as a fitness guru! Before the rise of Instagram, if a fitness professional wanted to be known far and wide, they would need to climb the ranks of the IFBB, make it onto a magazine cover, or stand next to Jillian Michaels on The Biggest Loser. The ladies listed below are those who stepped on stage long enough to build a name and start raking in the cash elsewhere.
