Sometimes, we all need a motivational boost. And whenever the folks at Greatist need inspiration, we look to our community. Each week, we'll share our favorite fitness photos — tagged with @greatist — from the Instagram community, featuring amazing fitness feats and downright heartwarming moments from across the globe.
This week, we asked users to tag their favorite fitness action shots for the chance to be featured on the site. These are our favorites.
1. Farm fit, brought to you by @thisisfitworkouts.
The folks at ThisIsFitWorkouts aren't afraid to get down and dirty to test their fitness, and this photo proves a little farm work goes a long way toward building strength — and looking like a total badass.
2. A Parisian cycling triumph from @anacarolgranja.
Brazilian foodie and London resident Carol Granja completed a 230 mile, 3-day ride that ended at France's most famous landmark. We're not sure what impressed us more: Her seriously challenging athletic feat, or the sweet cycling duds.
3. Hang time with @witzode.
Instagrammer Rich Costello lives a pretty adventerous life — as evidenced by an impressive catalogue of photos — but this shot was just too cool to pass up.
Congrats to Rich (@witzode on Instagram) for submitting this week's featured image!
