Top 5 Male Athletic Influencers You Should Be Following

Top 5 Male Athletic Influencers You Should Be Following

Over the last few years, social media has truly become a phenomenon. With around 2.62 billion users around the world, each platform allows people and brands to develop their own online personas and help them to attract a large following by posting meaningful content.


As a result, brands have recently recognised that as social media grows, people with a high follower count can have a huge influence on their audience – and from a marketing perspective, can help sell a product or service. From this, influencer marketing was born.


Although Facebook is the most popular platform of them all, influencers have really made its sister platform, Instagram, their playing ground. In this article, we take a look at some athletic influencers on Instagram that you should be following and analyse their accounts.


Alex Bowen (AB_Bowen/AB_BownFitness)

You may remember Alex Bowen as the runner-up in the second series of ITV’s Love Island, where he captured the hearts of the nation his now wife, Olivia Buckland. Since the show ended, Alex has been able to rack up a following of 1.4 million followers on Instagram alone.


Alex posts a mixture of fashion and fitness content on his main account, evening posting collaborations with men’s shirts retailer QUIZMAN. However, he does have a second account that is entirely dedicated to workout videos and gym pictures – which has gained a respectable following of almost 50,000 people
