The best celebrity trainers on Twitter

From Lady Gaga's newest healthy snack to Jen Aniston's favourite yoga pose, I love reading up on celebrity fitness news and gossip for a little inspiration.

From Lady Gaga’s newest healthy snack to Jen Aniston’s favourite yoga pose, I love reading up on celebrity fitness news and gossip for a little inspiration. And as many of the most in-shape stars will attest, their eating habits, motivation levels, and rock solid red-carpet-ready bods would be a whole different story without a tough trainer on their case.

Since I can’t pay a few hundred an hour for my own pro personal drill sergeant, I’m turning to the next best thing: the top trainers’ Twitter accounts. They dish out daily fitness advice, share their own ups and downs, and shed insight on their star clients (because even Heidi Klum has bad gym days!). You can find out about new product releases (often with added behind-the-scenes info) and ask questions directly to your guru for a chance to receive a virtual one-on-one session via Twitter reply, free of charge.

So, what are you waiting for? Start following these tweeting experts for regular health tidbits minus the price tag:
