The French Connection
Arguably the most famous of the instafamous personal trainers from France is Killian Belliard. He is a 20-something model and personal trainer who hangs with a group of other 20-something instagram stars producing visually stunning and titillating images while working out, a lot, apparently. Beards are in. Tatoos are out. For the instafamous it is refreshingly unusual that this group of Frenchmen have shunned tattoos.
Recently in Asia
presumably doing personal trainer stuff
with a following approaching 500,000
and a fans only page featuring more salacious images than these PG-rated, that
one can follow for only $9.99 per month.
Its a little different way of earning a living than when we were in Paris in college, but hey, why not. As I recall among other jobs I worked in an ice cold factory moving pallets of food from point a to point b all day. . . but whatever. We find Killian's instagram irresistible.

Most recently Killian has gone with a softer, younger look (above).
Gone is the long beard (below).
