Yahoo! News:


"Fitspiration is any message whose supposed intent is to encourage or
inspire people to attain their fitness goals
<http://health.usnews.com/health-news/health-wellness/articles/2015/02/02/how-to-achieve-your-unthinkable-fitness-and-other-goals>.
Often these messages are tacked onto an image of a hyper-fit person engaged
in some impressive physical feat. And these fitspiration [sic] (or *fitspo*
or *fitbies* as they are also dubbed) are everywhere."
