Athletes come in all shapes and sizes, and ESPN The Magazine's Body Issue makes that abundantly clear.
For the sixth time in as many years, the publication is celebrating the athletic form by showcasing world class sportspeople in nothing but the skin they were born in (well, that and a few well-placed props of course).
Gracing the six special-edition covers are five-time Wimbledon champion Venus Williams, 18-time Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps, Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, Olympic gold-medal-winning snowboarder Jamie Anderson, Texas Rangers first baseman Prince Fielder and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka.
So next time you're considering skiving off the gym for an evening on the couch, keep Venus' perfectly toned posterior and Michael's defined quads in mind - we know we will be.
