Way to sneak drop us a beyond hot album for our sweat sessions Queen Bey. That was such a royal move. And, now that we can get our sweat on at Broadway Bodies’ Beyonce Workout Class in NYC, looks like there may be a “fierce” amount of us waving our hands “side to side” like we don’t care in 2015. And let’s not forget that Bey and her amazing body had the best year everrrr!
2. Gabrielle Union
“Being Mary Jane?” What about being Gabrielle Union!? We are loving you in love. She’s glowing and we’re all about it. Gabby’s wit coupled without her commitment to being fit is just as mesmerizing as she is on screen therefore she is totally a “Top Five” when it comes to the most fit celebs of 2014.
3. Kelly Rowland
Here’s one fit momma. Baby bumps and biceps looked good on Kelly this year. And a lot of life happened in her world this year, but we were right there sweating through it with her. We’re sure to see Kelly bounce back with her amazing abs before the summer.
4. Michelle Obama
First Lady of the United States or should we say Fit Lady of the United States! Way to strong arm the nation and get our health in check. She had her eyes on childhood obesity, but we had our eyes on her buff biceps. And that first garden she brought to the White House?! Now that has truly changed the way we eat. There’s not doubt that our FLOTUS is a fitspiration.
5. Kerry Washington
The way our favorite #TGIT leading lady bounced back after giving birth is just scandalous! Clearly keeping it hot and steamy isn’t only happening for Kerry on-screen. Her style, her skin, her Pilates regimen – give us all three please!
6. Angela Simmons
Pretty girls sweat ladies and thanks to the support of Simmons they are starting young. Her involvement in the teen-focused program inspires young girls nationwide to get their fit on. She’s obviously one of our biggest fit faves.
7. Jeanette Jenkins
This celebrity trainer makes you feel more like her homie. Her Instagram is the best, so if you need a little daily inspiration, workout tips or just a body to envy head over to @msjeanettejenkins like yesterday. You’re welcome.
8. Viola Davis
Most people were trying to keep up with the “How To Get Away With Murder” plot, meanwhile I was trying to figure out how I could get away with Mrs. Davis’ deltoids. Those arms tho?! Way to teach us a thing or two about being fierce and fit Professor Annalise Keating.
9. Chaka Khan
Talk about “Through The Fire!” Yo, don’t nobody else tell me losing weight when you’re older is impossible because I don’t “Feel For You!” Chaka dropped those 60 lbs this year and is still clearly “Every Woman!” This power house of a singer also knows about the power of taking care of her health, so get it Chaka.
10. Misty Copeland
“I will what I want” – as in I will hit the gym more often after seeing Misty’s physique in this year’s Under Armour campaign. Hard to make excuses once you hear her defying all odds story. Simply put – she’s super inspirational and on point (pun intended).
11. Tracee Ellis Ross
Hair envy meets body envy. Ross make fitness and life look so fun! We thank her for showing us that curves are the new fit. Her silly yet sweaty social media posts sure do keep a sistah going.
12. Jennifer Hudson
“And I’m telling you…” that you better keep showing off that 80 lb weight loss JHud! Losing weight isn’t easy and keeping it off sure isn’t either, so we appreciate her showing us that being fit and fab is a lifestyle.
13. Jordin Sparks
American Idol turned FitGirl Idol. Jordin embraced her curves when she was a size 14 and embraces them at a now size 6, proving that confidence is the secret sauce to achieving your weight loss dreams. Health is her priority and based on her fit and fun Instagram handle, sweating seems to be a hobby right up there with singing.
14. Serena Williams
Yes to Serena’s September Fitness Magazine cover. Get it girl! But wait, can we also talk about her Beats by Dre ad for a moment?! She made us want to stop, drop and sweat! Always serving us some straight fitspiration Serena – we see you girl!
15. Skylar Diggins
She may be #4 for Tulsa Shock, but this hoop star diva is #1 in the fitspiration department! We are loving her involvement with Nike not only when it comes to fitness but to fashion – both her Metabolic Meltdown Workout on the Nike+ Training Club App and her Nike Dri-Fit Head Tie are everything!
