Exercise Girls on Instagram Are Annoying

I need to get something off my chest.

And speaking of chests…exercise girls on Instagram are annoying.

They’re annoying because under the guise of “health” and “getting fit” they flaunt their bodies for attention. They wear skin tight leggings showing off their butt, and sports bras showing off their boobs and tight stomachs. They buy expensive, revealing “athletic wear” and take 1000 suggestive photos of themselves in front of their mirrors.  And then share it all over Instagram.

But that’s not all.

Here’s where it gets really bad…

They take videos of themselves doing squats and guess where the camera is angled? The camera is angled upward with their back facing the camera pointing straight at their you know what.

They’re young and beautiful, they know they’re young and beautiful, and they want everyone else to know they’re young and beautiful.

It’s not about health, really. It’s about tits and ass and sex and vanity. I’m speaking about the top Instagram “paleo” fitness girls, even.

Are you annoying if you take a photo of yourself working out? No.

Are you annoying if you wear leggings? No.

You’re annoying if you do it in a proud or sexual way and then post it all over social media.

You guys, these girls have amazing bodies without working out at all and they can gain muscle very easily. I know because I’m one of them. I’m slim and it probably looks like I spend a lot of time in the gym. I don’t. I don’t work out at. all. It’s called genetics. My dad is tall and skinny and my mom is petite. Genetics are powerful and I just got lucky in that BMI area.  And fyi, skinny does not = health. Believe me, I know.

I feel sorry for the guys on Instagram. You know these vain chics are ALL OVER their “popular feed.”  I imagine it’s very hard for the guys on Instagram to avoid these “fitness accounts.”

Am I saying ALL female weight/health/fitness Instagram accounts are annoying? No. There are some truly inspiring weight-loss accounts and some awesome real fitness accounts. Find them and follow them.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight, get healthy or be pretty. And there’s nothing wrong with sharing these topics on Instagram. But when you do it in a prideful or over-sexualized way, it’s annoying.
