Just in case you haven't read my tutorials on finding and using social media for workouts, I'm here to tell you that Pinterest is one of the easiest and most comprehensive resources for sourcing visual workouts and fitness tips. While I did put together an full list of some of the best workout pins, it's a good idea to follow high-quality fitness accounts so you can continuously maximize your Pinterest workout experience.

Of course I think you should start by following About.com Health and Girls Gone Sporty, but then click through the slideshow above to find a few more of my personal favorites. These accounts are backed by experts, are updated regularly and always have cutting-edge information to help keep you on top of your game.

If you're not on Pinterest and still looking to use social media to maximize your fitness motivation, try following some of the best fitness accounts on YouTube and Instagram, and join a few Facebook Groups for motivation from other fitness enthusiasts. You can also learn to use Periscope to live stream workouts from the comfort of your home.
