When it comes to working out, we often turn to those in the spotlight for inspiration, so PureGym has released research revealing the celebrities that inspire our fitness regimes the most.
Analysing search data for more than 500 celebrities, from a-list actors to sporting legends, the results reveal an eclectic mix of the celebs we’re looking to emulate when working out. The rise of social media and sharing workouts meaning that these routines are no longer a Hollywood secret!
The world’s biggest celebrity fitness inspiration
The biggest celebrity fitness inspiration was revealed to be Australian Hollywood actor, Chris Hemsworth with a massive 264,000 average yearly searches for his workout routines. Noted for his rippling muscles starring as the Marvel superhero Thor, Hemsworth sees more than double the number of searches as movie megastar The Rock.
In second place, is fellow actor and Marvel co-star Chris Evans, who transformed his physique for his leading role as Captain America following an intensive strength-based workout routine and high-protein diet.
The number one female celebrity fitness inspiration was found to be Hollywood actress Gal Gadot. Yet another superhero star to be featured on the list, Gadot went through six months of high-intensive training to prepare for her role as Wonder Woman, so it’s no surprise that she is such an inspiration to others looking to get fit.
Elsewhere, Lebron James was the number one sport star where global fitness inspo is concerned, with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Conor McGregor not even making the top 20. Meanwhile, Khloe Kardashian came in as the top-ranking Kardashian at 13th, thousands of searches ahead of her sisters Kendall (18th) and Kim (19th).
