If you haven’t realized this by now, the hosts of American Ninja Warrior have some strong social media game. Akbar, Kristine and Matt pull no punches and let their personalities fly. Trolls and negative comments never seem to get them down and they’re not afraid to be authentic.

While you should follow them on all of their accounts, we’ve picked our favorite places to catch the hosts in action.

Akbar Gbajabiamila: Instagram

Akbar’s account is going to give you serious fitness goals. Although whether or not he ever sleeps is still a mystery.

DIP into the weekend @ATighterU? Bring on the ⛓'s! Friday got me feelin' like BEAST MODE .

Look at those cooking skills! Akbar can chef it up with the best.

Of course, Akbarisms and his signature energy abound.

Kristine Leahy: Twitter

With 142K followers, she has the most of all the hosts. Kristine’s Twitter is a testament to her serious sports knowledge and her sharp wit.

She takes followers behind the scenes of American Ninja Warrior.

She’s not afraid to share her opinions. She can and will back them up.

Show ‘em how it’s done, Kristine.

Also, you get pictures of her pug. Which is always amazing.

Matt Iseman: Facebook

Matt took to Facebook Live like a duck to water. He’ll stream from home. He’ll stream from set. Which set? Any set. He’s on like 18,000 shows. (Probably not an accurate number.)

It’s a chance to talk to Matt directly as he always takes questions and gives shoutouts.
