Plus-Size Fitness Influencers You Need To Follow

Many of the fitness influencers that fill our Instagram feed and our YouTube recommended page are on the more slender side. It seems like there just aren’t that many plus-size fitness influencers out there. For a long time (and even today) there’s a stigma that plus-size ladies are unhealthy, unfit and just plain lazy. 

Obviously this isn’t true and these fitness influencers are here to prove it to you. So, here are five plus-size fitness influencers that you need to be following right now:

 

Mirna Valerio

Ultrarunner Mirna Valerio discovered a love of running in high school, now the creator of the blog Fat Girl Running is a cross-country coach, author, public speaker and obstacle course enthusiast.

Everyday I am grateful for this body. Some days I may struggle to love it but then I have moments of clarity and I check my privilege around ableism at the door. . The body is so incredibly responsive. So forgiving, so patient. . We can tear it down but then in the end, the body remains ready when the mind returns. . Don’t allow the mental fuckery of society tell you that your body is anything less than a miracle, an allie (not the enemy). . I process through my emotions through the physical push of my body, without it, I am lost. . My physicality within my body is my saviour. . So to me, movement holds great meaning, purpose and solitude which has become my social life, my business life, my emotional process and Segway to my most grateful moments. . To me, this is a privilege I will never take for granted. . ❤️✌? . . . #fitnessforallbodies #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopo #bodypositivefitness #onlinecoaching #onlinefitness #onlinefitnesscoach #womensupportingwomen #womenempowerwomen #womensupportwomen #fitnessforwomen #plussizefitness #plussizefitnessjourney #haes #healthateverysize #effyourbodystandards #effyourhealthstandards #fitnessapp #fitnessathome #workoutathome #plussizetrainer #fitnessforwomen #curvyfitness
