Health and fitness became more central to the lifestyle category during the pandemic, with both influencers and brands looking to inspire movement and outdoor adventure. 

For example, in the fashion space, Traackr data found that the athletic/athleisure category saw an uptick in the number of activated influencers, posts and video views. And in the beauty space, we even saw more health and fitness influencers become integrated with the beauty industry. Perhaps these are indications that the lifestyle industry is ready for a change — it’s no longer all about how you look, but how you feel and what you do to take care of your body. 

For lifestyle brands that are interested in further exploring this trend, here are six health and fitness influencers who are spreading inclusivity and positivity, and have seen recent audience growth.
