Being fit and fine is the new black. Daily, Instagram is a testament to strong, vulnerable and triumphant women who have made the decision to share their fitness journeys with the world for the sole intention to inspire, encourage and uplift their followers and women who have had the same struggles.

Forget that one person, these ladies are encouraging thousands and should be commended not just for their personal triumphs but for setting a standard and acting as unofficial trainers and cheerleaders for others. These women should not go unnoted for their contribution in the health movement that is moving black women to being fit and fine and healthy.
