While we all have our preferences with regards to who and what is deemed attractive, overall, hotness is in the eye of the beholder. However, in a world in which the modelling world is filled with equally beautiful women awaiting their big break, there is always an up and coming starlet just awaiting her big break. While Jen Selter is one of the array of reigning fitness model queens, she is by no means the only beautiful fitness model in existence. Sure, she might be your favorite, but there are thousands of extremely gorgeous, Instagram fitness models that are equally deserving of your random ogling.
Without taking anything from Selter, (indeed, how could we?!) it has to be said that there are tons of fitness models on Instagram that could be just as big as Selter, if not bigger, if they only had the opportunity. Moreover, given that she was able to garner so much attention and followers based on her plump posterior, the “nicest butt” battle is one that could go on for decades. NO matter if you like women who are slender, a bit thicker, or anywhere in between, there is a fitness model on Instagram that you will love! Moreover, given that I am very much a champion of gorgeous, successful women, it only makes sense to write my own list of models who I believe deserve a platform equal to that of Selter. Indeed, although one’s number of followers is a factor when considering one’s level of hotness, it is but one factor of many. With that said, the following is an overview of 15 Instagram fitness models that are “hotter” than Jen Selter, in no particular order.
