No question about it: These celeb dads are worth a follow on Instagram. Not only do they do an A-list job of keeping active, they also love to post sweet snaps of their kids. We applaud them for making fitness a priority, and modeling healthy living for their little ones. Whether they’re sweating it out on the treadmill or packing on muscle in the weight room, these seriously strong pops motivate us to get moving.

Jane the Virgin actor Justin Baldoni is no stranger to a total-body workout. He frequently gives us glimpses of his intense fitness routines—and also his baby girl, Maiya.
