Johannesburg – Summer is around the corner, and if you need some inspiration to hit the gym and get your beach body ready, we've got you covered. 

Actually, some of our favourite celebrities have got you covered. 

These stars have spent hours in the gym sculpting their physiques. In fact, just looking at these Instagram posts makes us want to hit the treadmill. 


1. Unathi Msengana

Unathi loves showing off her training routine on Instagram, and by what we can tell, it's quite a hectic one. The Idols SA judge has also posted many progress pics on social media to help keep herself and fans motivated.

From taking on the Westcliff stairs to killing it at Grid classes, there's no workout that this star will shy away from. 

2. Liesl Laurie

This former Miss SA makes working out look good.

Not only does she work hard, Liesl Laurie knows it's important to keep exercise fun too. The presenter has shared some fun clips from her recent time in the gym, as well as some inspirational messages for her followers.

3. Pearl Thusi

We already know this, but just in case you need a warning, you do not want to mess with Pearl Thusi.

The actress showed off her boxing skills in a clip on Instagram and we were out of breath just watching.

4. Fezile Makhanya

Actor Fezile Makhanya has shown us what it means to "break a sweat". While bulking up with weights might seem like a go-to for many, the star also understands the importance of cardio training.

"Nobody likes cardio, but I do it regularly to keep my heart and body pumping," he told fans on Instagram.

5. Janez Vermeiren and Juliana Vasconcelos

If you're looking for the definition of #CoupleGoals, we found it right here. Producer/presenter Janez and his wife Juliana displayed their skills with some intense couples workouts. Now we understand why they both have such rock hard abs.

So if you don't like working out alone, invite your partner along and try out some of these moves.

6. Sbahle Mpisane

Sbahle has been a source of inspiration for many of her fans. After being involved in a car crash that left her in ICU, the fitness influencer is now back in the swing of things, working hard to regain her strength.

Not only does she work out at home with a personal trainer, she has also been hitting the gym to do some weight training.

7. Clint and Steffi Brink

Is it safe to say that Clint and Steffi are the most ripped couple we know? Seriously, have you seen their abs?

We've seen these two take on everything from boxing to weightlifting, and they have no plans of slowing down any time soon.
