All fitness fans have a goal body in mind. The fitness industry is a multi-million dollar business, pedalling products promising that elusive perfect figure. Whether it's exercise videos, diet foods, subscriptions, memberships, or meetings, there's always a new fad to fulfil your fitness goals. It's an ongoing quest, that gets more challenging as bodies change and age.
But what about those people who have already reached physical perfection?
Those lucky few - who may have been so rare that people would hardly have believed they existed in the past - now have social media to show off their results. Fitness models who post tantalising shots of their bodies online never tire of telling fans that they achieved that perfection through hard work, healthy eating, dedication, and perseverance. From daily workouts to clean eating, fitness is a full-time job for these models. Should they lose that perfect body, it could mean they're out of the job.
Outside of the entertainment business, fitness models also serve a purpose for the common people, as "fitspiration". Followers of these Greek goddess-like people want to know exactly how they work out and what they're eating, and they helpfully fill fans in on their Instagram and Facebook accounts, racking up hundreds of thousands of dedicated followers.
Whether you yourself are trying to get some fitspiration, or you just appreciate looking at those tight abs and even tighter butts, these are some of the sexiest and most influential fitness models to follow on social media in 2015.
